I always like doing the reflection as well
C - Danny Jansen (Reese McGuire) [excl still - Josh Thole]
The depth is weak but I have both my own catchers and at least one other crappy one. Their combined WAR last year was respectable so maybe their FF#'s will be too.
1B - Edwin Encarnacion (Eric Thames, Rowdy Tellez and eventually Travis Shaw)
Their isn't a lot of upside here but the rebound or streakiness should provide acceptable production.
2B - Freddy Galvis (Cavan Biggio, Lourdes Gurriel Jr) [excl still - Joe Panik]
A solid set of choices for the keystone. Again I'll ride the hot bat.
SS - Bo Bichette (Freddy Galvis)
Bo should be ready. If not then Freddy.
3B - Josh Donaldson (Vlad Guerrero Jr., Gio Urshela, Travis Shaw)
I also could have gone with Price in round 1 but i just didn't see it. Urshela in rd 4 for what I had on the table only made sense for BPA. Hoping to move one of the 3 so they don't rot but I'll never have an off day of where I can't plug them here or UTIL.
OF - Starling Marte, Teoscar Hernandez, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (Cavan Biggio, Eric Thames)
I still could use help here but Hernandez can be streaky good and he and Gurriel should have a little on the SB line if the team lets them go. Marte was a slight edge for me over Blackmon.
UTIL - Vlad Jr. (Urshela, Shaw, Thames)
Limited on AVG but got some RBIs and HR in there hopefully.
SP - Brandon Woodruff, Matt Boyd (Marcus Stroman, Daniel Norris, Brett Anderson, Kendall Graveman, JA Happ, Trent Thornton, Tanner Roark, Matt Shoemaker) [excl still – Nate Pearson]
I knew I’d have to run this on quantity rather than quality again. Double digit SPs and many are exclusive so I’ll rotate them through. Woodruff, Stroman Norris, Pearson have potential to be really good. (Or really bad)
RP – Liam Hendriks, David Phelps (we’ll see)
Its bad. Truly. But there are always WW options here for me once the season does start and once I missed Osuna and choose not to chase Giles on a rd 3 turn I figured I might lose out on any real saves production here.
P – Chase Anderson, Shun Yamaguichi, TBD
The Swing guys should be rotated a lot. Both these guys either will or won’t be in the rotation but should qualify as both RP/SP.
Overall I’m not happy with my planning this year. Went solidly BPA in the draft but it didn’t pan out to be a good team. Although I wasn’t expecting high hopes looking at what I had to chose from. It’s going to swing on how the young Jays pan out, who comes up in the pitching ranks as injuries or opportunities hit, and what else happens in the league where someone might need something and is willing to shake things up.
