I’d take this type of team any day. I tried to load up on power early and grab speed late. I also stuck to my 7/10 split strategy, which landed my Billingsley and Nathan as my first SP and RP. Like most of my pitching staffs, this one has a ton of upside, but does carry some risk as well.
Getting Wright and A-Gone with my first two picks was money and I think Matt Kemp proves to be a steal in round three. After loading up on power early, I made a note to target stolen base threats later in the draft and I feel good having landed Nishioka, Pagan and Morgan. My closer trio of Nathan Thornton and Broxton could be the best in the league, if this were a real league.
