NFT: Fantasy Baseball: Draft was last night, rate my team...

NYG27 : 3/30/2023 2:45 pm
12 Team Head to Head League

C: Adley Rutschman
1B: C.J. Cron
2B: Tommy Edman
SS: Andres Gimenez
3B: Bobby Witt Jr.
OF: Julio Rodriguez
OF: Masataka Yoshida
OF: Riley Greene
UT: Salvadore Perez
UT: Esteury Ruiz

Bench: Spencer Torkelson
Bench: Alex Kirilloff

IR: Jose Altuve
IR: Bryce Harper

SP: Spencer Strider

P: Graham Ashcraft
P: Hayden Wesneski

Bench: David Peterson
Bench: Adam Ottavino

IR: Tyler Glasnow
IR: Liam Hendriks

I went into the draft wanting to target stolen bases and I was going to punt away saves. Also with four IL spots in this league, I wanted to target Glasnow (12th), Altuve (13th), Harper (16th) and Hendriks (20th) in rounds 12-20 range. I was willing to wait till June or so for them to return.

Also Salvadore Perez might be a trade chip to use if he gets hot early on. Already had a few teams reach out to me who missed out on the good catchers. Pretty sure I can flip Perez for a top Outfielder or a #2 Starting Pitcher.

Thoughts on the team?
Pretty good overall

I'd really be on the lookout to try to improve corner infield.
That dogged me last year (and my pitching, which I got really unlucky with a variety of injuries, there, especially with Walker Buehler, who was my first round pick (sigh).

When did you take Rutschman? I'm really high on him. I drafted him last year and got to keep him at an 11th round value.

My draft is tonight. I am woefully unprepared.

He fell to me at the top of the 8th round.

Nice. I went to an O's spring game and he went oppo for a grand slam. Great bat to ball skills, I think the positional advantage with having a catcher that puts up big offensive totals is an underrated thing in fantasy baseball, but I'm still a novice, last year was my first year playing.

I have three keepers, and they are forever keepers...Rustchman as I said for an 11th, Ronald Acuna for a 3rd, and Pete Alonso for a 22nd.

is 3 for 3 today with a homer, two singles, and 3 RBI. Hope he keeps this up!
