12 team, 5x5 roto, keeper league.
162 game max per position, 1450 IP limit

C: Varitek
1B: Ortiz
2B: Castillo
3B: Blalock
SS: Furcal
OF: Guerrero, H. Matsui, Wells
UT: Nixon
B: Crosby, K. Matsui, Dm. Young, A. Marte

SP: Santana
SP: Wood
SP: Harden
RP: K Rod
RP: M Adams
RP: C. Cordero
P: Ayala
P: Calero
P: Bonderman
B: Thomson, D. Haren, W. Miller

I'm pretty happy with it. I'm weakest at 2B and RP, but I think Castillo will be good enough and Kaz could be a nice replacement. With our IP limit I can sit on Miller until he's healthy and roll the dice same as the Red Sox. If Wood is healthy I'm going to be in great shape in the pitching categories. Even if he's not, I should be okay.

Thoughts?

That is an amazing team for a 12 team keeper, is this your first season?

Thanks! I'm happy with it.

It's our 4th season (I think). I finished in first last year. My keepers were:

Santana, Wood, Harden, Guerrero, Wells, Blalock, Ortiz and Furcal.

I ended up trading up in the draft, allowing me to get H. Matsui and K Rod. I made the bet that giving up some later round picks wouldn't hurt me much as I've had success grabbing good players late. I think it paid off.

Thats a very solid team for a 12 team league. If Wood can stay healthy, your Pitching should be great.


If you get a chance...
