Do I Have Enough Speed?

Postby Captain Jack Sparrow » Sun Mar 06, 2005 10:41 pm

12 team roto 5x5

C- Kendall
1b- Pujols
2b- Kent
3b- Wright
SS- Izturis
OF- Sheffield
C. Lee
U- Morneau

P- Hudson

Bench - P. Wilson, B. Roberts, C. Crisp, P. Feliz
B. Penny, M. Morris

Do I have enough speed to stay competitive in SB's? I could use B. Roberts at the Utility spot to boost my speed.

you cant put in Robrets over Morneau, but possibly try a trade to get a Podsednik or someone even better with near the steals instead

No not even close is a roto league. H2H it may have been possible by putting Roberts in for Kent but you are going to get eaten alive in roto. If you want to be competetive you have to go after a guy who gets 50+ all by himself. Good luck ;-)

rather than 'enough speed' you need to get 'any' speed. I don't see any of those guys as threats to get more than maybe 30 if they go nuts. I'd go for maybe Dave Roberts over Podsednik as Pods seems to go higher in drafts but I don't see him doing much better than Roberts in SD. Endy Chavez is another guy who might get some SB who may be on your waiver wire or could be had cheaply if the positions match up for a trade. Other than that, you could seriously consider just punting it as you may win the other 4 hitting cats hands down. Good team for that!

Wouldn't want izturis in a team punting steals though as that and average are his strengths.
