I was in this league last year and also posted about it here last year. I finished in 6th place out of 8.
Here's my final squad from last season, and I'm allowed to keep 5 from this list and then the rest go into the draft pool.
Now, the guy who won the league last year did it with pitching and speed.
He had the best ERA and WHIP and most Stolen Bases..
The second best in K's and SV's, and third best in W's
Middle of the pack in AVG and Runs scored
He had the least HR's and RBI
So I'm thinking I need to definitely keep..
(RP) Heath Bell
Up the Middle
(2B) Brandon Phillips
(SS) Hanley Ramirez (hope for a bounce back season?)
Behind the dish
(C/1B) Buster Posey (another hope for a bounce back. I hope he's healthy)
And then I dunno.
Maybe skip them both? I don't think they would be drafted too early... I think my game plan in the draft though is going to be a couple SP's, a couple RP's and then to get SB's from the outfielders.. kind of follow the mold of the dude that won last year.
What do you guys think?
