My Warm-up Team

Postby VWells4Prez » Wed Mar 23, 2005 11:51 pm

This is my warm up draft before my big draft coming up next week.

Tried for BA, HR, RBI, and ERA, WHIP, and K's
Everything else is just gravy.

C I. Rodríguez
1B A. Dunn
2B J. Lugo
3B S. Rolen
SS K. Greene
OF V. Wells
OF G. Anderson
OF P. Wilson
Util S. Casey
BN Lu. González
SP B. Sheets
SP J. Peavy
RP E. Gagne
RP S. Takatsu
P R. Halladay
P B. Webb
P D. Willis
BN J. Putz
BN M. Batista
BN B. Myers
BN J. Francis

I know with guys like Dunn and Webb, you guys are gonna think I don't know what I'm doing, but I expect Dunn to batt around .270 which isn't quite bad or out of the picture. Webb I hope can shapen up. If he gets his sinker and control going, he could be a breakout pitcher. If not, he's going to the waiver wires.

Any suggestions would be helpful.
This is a standard H2H Yahoo! league w/ 12 players. I had the 11th pick.

The team looks pretty good. Weak in middle infield (not that there are a lot of offensive weapons available there). Your OF is high risk/reward -- all these guys are looking for comeback years. I think Wells will be a 30-20 guy this year, but won't hit above about .280. On that note, your team won't hit for great average -- IRod and Rolen will be over .300, but who else? I just don't see Casey repeating what he did last year.

Pitching looks good - I like Peavy, Sheets and Halladay to front your rotation. I disagree about Webb, but it's a risk you want to take. The Francis kid has a great arm, but I don't see him breaking out this year. Your bullpen looks pretty good (assuming Putz takes over for Guardado).

What I can't seem to figure out is who you used your first 2 picks on. If you took Rolen, I assume it was late in the 1st round which would give you an early second round pick. I'm hoping you didn't waste a #2 pick on Gagne. Anyways, I digress.

At the end of the day, I don't really see this team competing unless all of your hitters end up repeating their career years (and I think Rolen is the only one of the bunch you can count on 100%).

Please take a look at my teams:
