Rookie--how does my team look?..

Postby bdrotoronto » Mon Mar 28, 2005 10:57 am

Hi everyone, this is my first time posting here on the baseball side, actually it's my first year playing fantasy baseball too. I followed the football side pretty religiously last year (mostly as a lurker but occasionally posted) and it helped me a lot, hopefully everybody here on the baseball end is just as wise and knowledgable. B-)

So I'm in an office pool that just did its autodraft yesterday, 19-team league, 7x6 (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP, SLG; W, CG, SV, ERA, WHIP, K/BB). Competitive league as far as office pools go. Full re-draft every year, no keepers. Obviously with 19 teams there's a lot of lesser-known players in a lot of teams' starting positions right now.

Here's my team coming out of the draft:

Batters:
C--J. LaRue (Cin)
1B--D. Ortiz (Bos)
2B--B. Boone (Sea)
3B--M.Lowell (Fla)
SS--O.Cabrera (LAA)
OF--Pr.Wilson (Col)
OF--M.Lawton (Pit)
OF--G.Jenkins (Mil)
Util--Mi.Sweeney (KC)
BN--A.Kennedy (LAA-2B)
BN--C.Guzman (Was-SS)

Pitchers:
SP--J.Schmidt (SF)
SP--K.Escobar (LAA)
RP--K.Foulke (Bos)
RP--S.Takatsu (CWS)
P--R.Wolf (Phi-SP)
P--J.Tavarez (StL-RP)
P--J.Brower (SF-RP)
BN--J.Contreras (CWS-SP)
BN--M.Hampton (Atl-SP)
BN-J.Walker (Det-RP)

What do you guys think are my team's strengths and weaknesses? Is there any particular position you think I should seek help in, and what might be the assets I could/should be willing to offer? (Unlike my football pool people seem pretty willing to trade in this league, so I suspect a lot of deals could probably get done :*) ). Overall I think my team seems balanced, but could probably use some help in the P positions, but on the other hand I'm new at this and would likely defer to any suggestions I get here. Thanks in advance for any help, it's much appreciated! ;-D :-D
