Default After-draft Discussion

So who all was at the baseball league draft last night? I stayed until round 15 - then really had to get off. Luckily, we had a 2-hour delayed opening because of snow/ice, so I got to check out some things this morning.

I got Helton with my first pick, #4. I think I'm most weak at SP, where I lack an ace, but have some guys who could emerge to that roll: Colon, Pettite, Seley, etc. I also am a little weak at SS, where I have Reese and Vizquel. What about you?

Well, I'd say I have an abundance of starting pitchers (Johnson, Ishii, Reed, Appier, Wagner, and Kim... not to mention Sirtoka who should have a real good come-back year after sitting last year out with injury, and also David Wells) and a lack of infield talent.

Well, I missed the draft and FORGOT TO PRERANK! ...but I don't think I faired too badly...My stars include Frank Thomas, Curt Schilling, and Barry Bonds. I need some good pitching. Besides Schilling, my staff is pretty mediocre. Man! How could I forget?

I was there till the end...my OF is weak (Lawton, Dunn, Alou, Jenkins) but if my pitching stays healthy I'm good to go (Martinez, K. Brown, Mulder, Milton, Dempster.) Also have to hope Nomar comes back from injury to play well.

One word: pitching. I have none besides Hudson. I really, really like my offense though. I've always tried to balance my team between pitching and offense in drafts, but I don't know what got into me last night, and I'm hoping some of my lower guys can have some good years.

I'm available for preseason trade talk.. I don't typically do much trades once the season starts but all offers preseason are weighted evenly.

I've already been in contact with "I need a name" (still can't remember who that is ) but that's it for now.

I think I faired well. I dont think my team has a huge weakness in any area, although I could use another starter, but Clemens and Sabathia should be good this year. I have A TON of relievers.

And Lee, how could you pick that Iishi guy with your first pick!?!?!?!

Well.. here's the thing -- first, it was my 2ND pick.... secondly, I wanted to be strong on pitching, and I think that I've accomplished that.... but I ordered my prerankings by position (not by my actual rankings), and put the players with multiple positions (ie: Giambi, 1B, DH) at the bottom.... but at the draft time I had forgotten about that and didn't see any good power guys at the top of my list, and if I had remembered Giambi waaay at the bottom, I would've defeinitely taken Giambi (the "real" one.. not the "fake" one (Jeremey) that I got at the end of the draft ) over Ishii but..... I think it worked out.

Lee, I've left that deal open for the sole purpose that its probably the only deal I would want to make now, I would usually consider Wagner, but I think my RP is solid enough right now.

Well, I think I did, if you're talking about the one a while ago. We're talking now though, so we'll see...
