The draft has ended.

Here is my lineup and pitching.  Blue indicates nominated players, black indicates teammates.  I ended up using 12 teammates.

I have to platoon at catcher.  I'm a little light in "good" innings as I really only have 3 decent RPs (Montgomery will pitch in losses, mostly) .  I'll probably have to spot-start a crappy version of Dobson a couple of times to keep my SPs (only 970 IP) fresh.

Playing in Dodger Stadium, doubles and triples get surpressed, so I wanted my hitters to walk and hit home runs.  There are enough pitchers in this league who allow HRs that I don't think my HR hitters will underachieve too much.  I tried to avoid drafting pitchers that allow HRs and think I did a decent job of doing so.  My defense is better than average, especially in the infield.

Wow, $111.75 miilion.  I am only using about  $102 million, but that is the downside of using so maany teammates.
5/29/2013 3:29 PM

Being in Dodger stadium I was going for good pitching, fielding and speed.  I ended up with good pitching ,good fielding and power.  Getting Maddux's 1994, Feller's 1940, and Messersmith's 1975 gave me great SP with an adequate Drysdale to allow me to stretch out the other three.  4 decent (not great relievers) give me over 1500 innings of pitching.  My defense is solid with A range in 3 of my 4 infielders, and A+ with Dimaggio in the OF.  My 3, 4, 5 hitters will be Yaz's triple crown year, Dimaggio's 41 season, and Boudreau's 48 season.  Molitor will need to bat leadoff, with 300 hitters except for Cey filling out the lineup.  A hole at catcher with only 405 PA's for Hal Smith.

I used 10 temaates and 7 nominees of playable 111.75 million.  I wasted 8.25 on the other 8 players.  I think I have a shot but I am a terrible predictor and usually jinx myself. I have never used the 67 Yaz or 41 Dimaggio years before.  Should be interesting.

Here is mine for anyone that is interested. It's not what I envisioned in the beginning but it was my first draft using this format. My bullpen is nicknamed "the pyromaniacs". Ihave a great pair of aces with 95 Maddux and 65 Koufax. Unlike schwarz's Dobson, mine will take the mound every fourth game and the fans in the rightfield stands can expect alot of souveniers on those days. Drysdale will give up a lot of runs but he'll drive in a few, too. I used 7 teammates in my starting lineup, the only nominated player to start was Cey. I was hoping to pick up a fourth starter with my Cey pick, but by the time I got around to it, I couldn't afford it.

I have never used Boudreau's 1948 season and am envious. Nice draft!
5/29/2013 4:15 PM
Thanks.  Actually when you took the 2006 Alou just before me in Round 9 what I was planning went up in smoke.  I had to readjust and it actually worked out better.  

The sad part is I believe the Indians from the late 40's and early 50's should have been one of the dynasty's in baseball history.  It never proved out then in champiosnships or for me here in WIS either.  I have used them a number of times with so-so results.  I hope Boudreau\Doby\Feller work out better this time.
