I went into the draft focusing on drafting pitching, but couldn't pull the trigger on a few starters I was targeting as they were bid too high for my liking. So I drafted a roster full of offense, and will have to make some deals for a starter or two to shore up my pitching staff.
I felt that I overspent on some players like Ian Snell, Chris Coste, and Chris Iannetta, but got good value from Ryan Spilborghs, Chase Headley and Cody Ross. I own half of the Marlins starting rotation, but like Ricky Nolasco and Josh Johnson alot. Sean West could move into the rotation come mid-year if Andrew Miller struggles.
Some owners were baiting me into spending on Dodgers, and I was close on a few, but decided against overpaying for Manny Ramirez when one owner started the bidding around $44. At that point, I had already drafted Hanley Ramirez, Carlos Lee and Nate McLouth, if I am not mistaken.
I wonder if I should have spent that extra dollar on Clayton Kershaw instead of Adam Dunn??
I would have loved to draft Matt Kemp, but he went for more than McLouth did.
How did I do?
