    Post Draft Self analysis. Summary - I came into the draft with a full complement of solid starters at each position. My goal for the draft was to acquire high upside players and provide flexibility for my roster by having options for each position. I chose not to address pitching in the supplemental because I have 10 exclusive starters and a full compliment of Cardinals relievers to carry me through. My analysis includes players on my current Yahoo roster as well as some key players who I don't have on there but are exclusive and will move onto the roster as needed. C. -- Yadier Molina, Matt Wieters (Andrew Knizner in AAA). I hated trading away Carson Kelly because he would have been my primary starter but having the depth at Catcher with Molina, Wieters, and Knizner allowed me to make the move. Yadi is still performing on average with most catchers in the league. He won't blow anyone away with his stats but he won't hurt me either. Wieters had over 10 HR's in limited action with the Cardinals. 1B. -- Paul Goldschmidt, Matt Olson, Aledmys Diaz Pretty darn solid twosome with Goldschmidt and Olson. One of these guys will be my full-time UTI player when they both have games. Both capable of 35 plus homeruns and 100 plus RBI. 2B -- Scott Kingery, Kolton Wong, Jurickson Profor, Aledmys Diaz, Tommy Edman, Brad Miller A lot of potential with Kingery. Wong and Profor both solid performers. Wong, Edman and Kingery all threats for stolen bases. 3B. Nolan Arenado, Matt Carpenter, Scott Kingery , Aledmys Diaz, Tommy Edman, Brad Miller I had the third overall pick in the supplemental and I had my top three targets as Arenado, Yelich, and Story. I assumed two of the three would be gone and I would take who was left. All three were still there and I had to make a decision. I went with Arenado due to 3B being the position I was most concerned about. I don't have a stud OF'er but I have a lot of potential out there that I can use. Lots of depth at this position in case of injury or days off. SS. Paul DeJong, Scott Kingery DeJong is kind of an under the radar guy for the Cardinals. 30 doubles and 30 HR's with 9 SB and steller defense. He is a solid/steady performer. The primary reason I traded for an additional pick in the 2nd round of the supplemental was to grab Kingery for his versatility. His SS eligibility (along with 2B, 3B, and OF) makes him very valuable to me. Not to mention the fact he had 34 Doubles, 19 Homeruns, and 15 stolen bases in 458 AB's last year. OF. Tommy Pham, Randal Grichuk, Stephon Piscotty, Jurickson Profor, Jason Heyward, Dexter Fowler, Scott Kingery, Brad Miller, Tommy Edman, Randy Arozarena. Just a lot of bodies I can throw out here and play the hot hand. The list above has only 1 Starting OF for the Cardinals (Fowler) on it. I have exclusives on my roster that will be starting in the other two spots. So I have a lot of depth. Grichuk hit 31 bombs last year with 90 RBI. Piscotty was injured most of the year but is capable of 30 HR and 100 RBI when healthy. Pham, when healthy, can stuff a stat sheet. he was a 20/20 guy last year with 33 doubles. No massive big thumper here but enough to hopefully mix and match when needed. SP: Jack Flaherty, Dakota Hudson, Adam Wainwright, Carlos Martinez, Mike Leake, Luke Weaver, Sandy Alcantara, Marco Gonzales, Michael Wacha, Kwang-Hyu Kim, With the exception of Mikolas (who I don't believe will play this year due to an injury) I have the entire starting 5 for the Cardinals. Flaherty had a historical second half of the year last year and finished 4th in the Cy Young with 20 quality starts. Hudson went 16-7 with a 3.35 era as a rookie with 17 quality starts. Carlos Martinez looked great in Spring Training and was a former #1 for the Cardinals before injuries hit him the last couple of years. Marco Gonzales was named the opening day starter for the Mariners after winning 16 games and having an era under 4 last year. He also had 19 quality starts, and Sandy Alcantara looks to build off a decent rookie campaign where he started 32 games and finished with 151 strikeouts and an era of 3.88 with 14 quality starts for a woefully bad Marlins team. Mike Leake actually finished with 19 quality starts for the Diamond backs. Just a solid group with a lot of bodies to compile category wins. RP: Alex Reyes, Giovanny Gallegos, Adam Ottavino, Trevor Rosenthal, Jordan Hicks, Austin Gomber, Genesis Cabrera, Tyler Webb, Daniel Ponce DeLeon..... Just like everyone else, Relief pitcher is a crapshoot. The good news is I have the Cardinals closer and almost all their set-up men. The upside to the shutdown is when play does resume, Jordan Hicks will be even closer to rejoining the team as the projections for his return was July. Until then though Gallegos and Ottavino were both lights out last year. In 73 games Ottavino had 28 holds and 1.90 era with 88 strikeouts in 66.1 innings for the Yankees. Gallegos, after a slow start to his rookie season, finished with 19 holds and 93 strikeouts in 74 innings. He is in line to be the closer for the Cardinals until Hicks returns UNLESS Alex Reyes wins the job. Reyes was the #1 pitching prospect for the Cardinals and all of MLB just a few years ago. He had the last couple of years derailed by different injuries but he is still only 25 and has electric stuff. Before the shutdown, the Cardinals were touting him as the closer. Overall I am very happy with my team.

    I’m assuming we can make our normal roster transactions with the add/drop feature. In other words, I can drop one of my players and pick up a player eligible for my team at this point. Is that correct?

    Last year Judge and Stanton were both high picks. I drafted this year.

    I wasn’t expecting this much talent to be available this late. I agree that there are a couple that I am shocked about.

    I was torn between Yelich and Arenado. I assumed one of them would be gone before it got to me. Tough choice. Felt I needed a 3B more.

    Just tried to add Arenado after my pick. It shows "Actions locked by the commissioner" on the yahoo site where you can add a player.
