Lookin for opinions!

Postby RynMan » Sat Mar 05, 2005 8:34 am

Hey guys. Lemme know what you think, tried to draft a balanced team. I think i did fine. Love any feedback! 5x5 yahoo style.

C M. Lieberthal (Phi - C)
1B C. Delgado (Fla - 1B)
2B L. Castillo (Fla - 2B)
3B D. McPherson (LAA - 3B)
SS O. Cabrera (LAA - SS)
OF B. Abreu (Phi - OF)
OF B. Bonds (SF - OF)
OF C. Lee (Mil - OF)
Util R. Hidalgo (Tex - OF)
BN C. Crisp (Cle - OF)

SP P. Martínez (NYM - SP)
SP B. Sheets (Mil - SP)
RP J. Nathan (Min - RP)
RP O. Dotel (Oak - RP)
P T. Percival (Det - RP)
P A. Burnett (Fla - SP)
P J. Bonderman (Det - SP)
BN B. Penny (LAD - SP)
BN A. Otsuka (SD - RP)
BN M. González (Pit - RP)
BN U. Urbina (Det - RP)

I am thinking of replacing McPherson with Casey Blake (on waivers).
Also, I dunno about Lieberthal. AJ, Inge, Buck, Closser are all still there.

Nice team! I would want another 3b in addition to McPherson. He may be fiune, or he may be a rookie. Never know...

So I'd look to drop one of your rp/sp for blake. I assume you have holds, which is why you have so many middle relievers. If yes, I'd drop one of them for blake anyway as they are easy to come by. If not, why do you have them in the first place? Clearly, you could drop one or several in that case.

I agree. You have a nice team, and you should replace McPherson and Lieberthal. If you want Inge he plays 3 positions. C, 3B, and OF.

Nice OF 8-o :-D

+1 to getting a backup 3B. I read some glowing reviews of McPherson before I read #s and saw how much he Ks. It might be worth to hang onto him though, in case Vlad gives him some pointers and he takes off. Castillo does not totally strike me as potential laden but I'm thinking FLA will have some mojo this year and maybe it'll catch him.

I was in the thread about stocking up on the 3 MR and how three of them > Santana too but, in terms of roster space, that's quite a bit of room that those guys are taking up. I got Rincon, Gonzalez and Gordon though!! ;-D. Perhaps you can dump Penny or look for a team short on P and long on 3B and swap Penny for a 3B? Trading Percival is a good idea too, if you 'punt' saves (unk if he's going to get that many anyway...) by selling him before we find out if he's still 'got it', you could perhaps get a 3B back for him who might be a boost over Blake or McPherson? I'm thinking that Gonzalez is very likely to end up closing for Pitt at some point too...

Any thoughts you might have on this

i like your team. i Dallas is kinda a high risk/ high reward type of guy. I would probably go with blake. but i would keep dallas and maybe drop urbina (i'm not to big a fan of MR with no save opps and eras over 4). I would also take AJ over Lieberthal since he will contribute more to batting average and neither will hit a ton of homeruns.

if you have any ideas on my team please post them.

You gotta drop McP for Blake! Blake gets no love, he put up great numbers last year... you should be happy if McP comes close to matching them.

.271 28 HR 88 RBI 93 R 5 SB

Why is this guy not liked? Very underrated.

If it's a Keeper, I'd probably do it. If it's not, no way.

Go for a bat with Pedro, you've got a good amount of SP as it is.
