Just had my draft, please help!!

Postby Grizzlies » Mon Mar 28, 2005 7:47 pm

I just tried something new. I'm already in two leagues and decided to join a Yahoo! public league just for fun. I didn't want to commit to a live draft so signed up for an auto-draft league. My pitching looks pretty awful to me, espedcially with Sabathia hurting. Please let me know what you think.

12-team Yahoo! H2H league with auto-draft
Categories are R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP
We start 1-C, 1-1B, 1-2B, 1-3B, 1-SS, 3-OF, 3-SP, 2-RP, and 3-P
C - A. Pierzynski
1B - C. Delgado , R. Palmeiro , S. Green
2B - B. Boone
3B - A. Ramírez
SS - M. Tejada , R. Furcal
OF - H. Matsui , S. Green , A. Rowand , L. Ford , Lu. González
SP - R. Oswalt , J. Beckett , C.C. Sabathia, J. Westbrook , K. Benson , T. Wakefield
RP - O. Dotel , D. Graves , B. Wickman

Theres not that many stolen bases there. Your SP aren't THAT bad. I would probably try and trade S. Green or Palmerio for another SP though

Oswalt is one of the top pitchers. It's not too bad. You could use a better reliever though. I'd look for someone who has a decent RP and see if they need a SS. You could deal Furcal and one of your RPs

There's a guy with Gagne, Lidge, Foulke, Nathan and Isringhausen!!!

He's pretty stacked at 1B with Pujols, Casey, Franco and Sweeney. His OF are Lo Duca, L. Walker, Berkman anc Crisp and his SS is Eckstein. If I can't make a deal for a RP with him then I can't make one with anybody. He must have had them all ranked in his top 10.

What would be a fair deal to offer him?

Your team looks solid the only thing I would do is get an upgrade at RP as listed by previous posts. I would drop wakefield ( he'll be in the pen most of the year IMO) and pick up Cliff Lee. He should be a cheap source of k's and is better then wakefield IMO. ;-D
