Help! I'm a Vet trapped in a Newbie's body! I'll help you!

Postby savvy_stu » Thu Mar 24, 2005 12:05 am

So, I've been playing fantasy baseball for a few years now. This is the first year we've ever had a keeper draft, it's also the first year we've ever used the Head-to-Head format.

Let me know what you think guys... and gals (maybe)?

We use OBP instead of AVG... So, that changes a few things...

Let me know of trades you think I should propose...

10 team 5x5 Head to Head
OBP/R/HR/RBI/SB
W/K/SV/ERA/WHIP
1st year keeper league (keep five)

C- V. Martinez
1B- A.Pujols
2B- J. Vidro
3B- A. Huff
SS- N. Garciaparra
OF- J. Pierre
OF- A. Dunn
OF- L. Walker
Util- D. Wright

Bench- Jason Bay
Bench- Juan Uribe (2B, SS, 3B)

SP- O. Perez
SP- R. Halladay
RP- M. Rivera
RP- D. Kolb
P- M. Prior
P- S. Takatsu
P- T. Gordon

Bench- C. Sabathia
Bench- Z. Greinke
Bench- S. Kazmir

Your infield is looking pretty good, so long as Nomar stays healthy, but thus far he is doing great. Your outfield is pretty well rounded and your bench is good. For pitching im hoping thats Oliver Perez and not Odalis Perez. If its Odalis youll need alot of help with SP, if its Oliver youll need a little because Prior and his fricking elbow. Buuut if Prior bounces back and stays healthy, that would greatly boost your SP. But either way id say with Greinke, and Kazmir and Sabathia in your 3-5 slots your not going to have an overwelming pitching staff.Considering Kazmir and Greinke have no offense backing them up. You know you got at least 40 saves coming with Rivera, and i personally think Kolb should be even better in Atlanta. Id say your SP needs the most help.

I really like your team alot. Bright future with a decent present.

Being that O Perez is your first pitcher, I'm guessing its Oliver and not Odalis. Young guns in your offense really shoudl win you 4/5 offensive categories. Not too sure about runs.

Pitching in terms of starting is great. Prior is a gamble but I would take it. Kazmir I'm really iffy on but Greinke should pan out. Your closers are trouble some because Rivera isn't excatly young and Kolb only has one decent season under his belt. Mr. Zero isn't exactly young either.

I would try to package Kazmir along with Kolb/Takatsu to get either a Mota or Lidge type closer in return.

damn fine team - i would look to try to make a move with dunn. he had a great year last year and could have some good trade bait - cincy is a pretty risky lineup that could effect dunn in the long run. i disagree with the other guy in regards to your RP - kolb had a good season with a brewers team that is nothing like they are now, atlanta is a much better fit and the SP in ATL should leave kolb in very good looking positions when he comes in.

i like greinke a ton but i do worry about his W production the most

sabathia is on a better looking team so dont worry too much

perez is a cannon but again W not the strong suit in PIT

try to tinker with some winning pitchers - colon always seems to rack up wins even when he sucks and should be fairly cheap

please look at my team
