Ok, here's another Scoresheet team I have - AL Only - With hard 13, minor leaguers count as late draft picks, 2 crossovers from NL can be kept. Recently acquired, finished middle of the pack (5th out of 10) last year.

Here are the players on the team (in no order, just copy and paste job):

Chris Archer Martin Maldonado
Jose Quintana Evan Gattis
Martin Perez Kevan Smith
Dan Strailey Carlos Perez
Kyle Gibson Justin Smoak
Mike Fiers Yonder Alonso
Ubaldo Jimenez Brandon Moss
Yovani Gallardo C.J. Cron
Kendall Graveman Jonathan Schoop
Anibal Sanchez Jose Altuve
Tyler Duffy Jed Lowrie
Collin McHugh Marwin Gonzalez
Craig Kimbrel Adrian Beltre


Chelsor Cuthbert
Brad Miller
Daniel Ray Robertson
Jorge Mateo
Brett Gardner
Kevin Pillar
Eddie Rosario
Josh Reddick
Dexter Fowler
Jorge Bonifacio
Mikie Mahtook
Rajai Davis
Aaron Hicks
Ezequiel Carrera
Joey Rickard
Tyler Collins
Jake Smolinski
Billy Burns
Melvin Upton

My initial feel is I like the position players and my first 2 SPs and can build a pretty good core. I have a logjam with Schoop and Altuve. I can either DH Schoop
which makes Alonso useless or should I be looking to unload some positional talent like Schoop or Alonso in hopes of a better draft pick or pitching help? Or do I throw back one of Alonso/Schoop?

The best undrafted players to me are (in no special order): Giancarlo Stanton, Dee Gordon, Jay Bruce, Zack Cozart, Nunez (if he stays in AL), Mike Leake, then it's pretty much bullpen (some good names) and platoon players.

I have my own opinions but am curious your thoughts... Thanks!

I like Schoop's bat too much to just release. I think I'd hope to move Alonso, even if it's for one of the draft picks in the first reserves. I'd deal Schoop only for an SP1 type. You may be able to do a two-for-one with Alonso and Gattis for an upgrade at catcher, though I'm not sure how many AL catchers I like more. Gary Sanchez owner isn't dealing him. Maybe Sal Perez? Even than, I'm not sure.

You look like a very good SP away from letting the boys play and seeing what happens.

I am not going to win the league... League Champ was Greinke, Scherzer as his crossovers, along with Darvish, Keuchel, Pomeranz, and Ervin Santana (who I think pitched over his head last year)... Hard to beat that. He also has Sal Perez, so he isn't giving that up either..... :(

My only complaint about Scoresheet is it sims to results and not skills, at least for the most part so yeah, Santana's owners were pretty lucky.

Agreed it isn't perfect. That's the fantasy baseball aspect of it though. If I had Ervin Santana in a 5x5 league, I was lucky too and benefitted from it.... My complaint about this league is the best team has all the good players.... whomp :(
