CAN THIS TEAM COMPLETE THE THREE-PEAT?

Postby giambiformvp » Sat Apr 02, 2005 4:28 pm

I've won the championship in my 10 Team Yahoo! League the last two years and I'm looking to go for 3 in a row. I drafted about a week ago and still haven't made any changes. I'm leaning on a lot of players to have big years (Preston Wilson, Sammy Sosa, Shawn Green, Veron Wells, etc.). Please give me feedback of what moves I should make to stengthen my team.

I'd be a little worried if your leaning on Sosa, Green and Wilson all three of them have been up and down lately. Odds are that one or maybe two of them might have big years but I doubt that all three will be good. I think that Green is the best of those three, then Wilson but if he gets traded then his value drops, based on where he goes and sosa's numbers have slipped each of the past three years.

You are in a good spot, if you are comfortable trading pitching for hitting. Not everyone is.

I would trade starting pitching for an outfielder who can hit the snot out of the ball.

I would trade another starter for a third tier closer, just in case injuries strike.

I worry about Lane, Green and Wilson. I would worry about them if they were all on different teams. I would would worry about the manager if they were all on the SAME fantasy team.

I know it sounds crazy, but you may want to pick up a player named Jeremy Reed. Seattle got him in a trade from the White Sox. He is a really talented player and he is hitting between Ichiro and Adrian Beltre, that means lots of RBI's and lots of Runs.

Who would be a third-tier closer?

I'm sorry to hear that, but good thing people are jumping on the Jeremy Reed bandwagon
