Im in an 8 team yahoo 5x5 league. My draft went pretty well in my opinion with my team being very offense oriented and my pitching staff composed of potential comebacks, injury concerns, and overall question marks. Here is my Roster as it is now.
C - Javy Lopez
1B- David Ortiz
2B- Marcus Giles (Juan Uribe)
SS- Derek Jeter
3B- Alex Rodriguez
RF- Brian Giles (Austin Kearns)
CF- Aaron Rowand (Andruw Jones)
LF- Reggie Sangers (Lance Berkman)
Util- Adrian Beltre
Util- Travis Hafner
SP- Mark Mulder
SP- Mike Mussina
SP- Kerry Wood
SP- Carl Pavano
RP- G. Mota
RP- Danny Graves
RP- Octavio Dotel (Latroy Hawkins)
P- Brad Penny
P- Matt Morris
P- Jake Westbrook
My outfield although lacking a true stud is pretty deep, especially when Berkman comes back. My plan is to use one offesive player to greatly boost my pitching staff.
My plan: Trade either Ortiz or Beltre straight up for a stud pitcher like Schilling or Schmidt. Replace them in the lineup with Andruw Jones. Then package two of my semi/potential studs (Mussina & Penny) for one legit stud such as Ben Sheets. Then try and make do with the closers I have, searching the waivers for up and coming closers etc.
Is this a good plan, Ill be able to solidify my rotation at the expense of really only one bat and one middle-tier arm.
