OK, time to evaluate the two top teams in my league...

Postby DK » Sun Apr 03, 2005 2:16 pm

Which are, of course, mine and my friend from work. We've finished 1-2 each of the last two years (OK, he was first, I came in a close second) and I was first the year before that. I need to regain my crown, so help out the Disco King and tell me which team you think has an edge. If you could give advice for the teams as well, that'd be great.

Roto league, 6x6. All the usual categories plus OBP and Holds, take out K's and put in K/BB. REMEMBER THE CATEGORIES when you make an evaluation.

Team 1

C J. Varitek (Bos - C)
1B A. Pujols (StL - 1B)
2B R. Freel (Cin - 2B,3B,OF)
3B C. Blake (Cle - 3B)
SS C. Figgins (LAA - 2B,3B,SS,OF)
OF A. Dunn (Cin - 1B,OF)
OF S. Green (Ari - 1B,OF)
OF J. Guillen (Was - OF)
Util T. Helton (Col - 1B)

I think A has a better team, B doesn't seem to have nearly as good of hitting.

I think A has more overall value on the team, but needs to address a few question marks and above all, not punt holds.

Q how many teams?


Team 1 assessment

Infield is week. Fast, but week.
Blake is Solid.
Figgins will be a good deal if he keeps his job
Freel should not be here, unless this is a deep league

Seems to have a bunch of people all ready to back up Pujols. Seems to be 1B Overkill. In fact, if this is a daily league, team one may find many days when he cannot even fill his OF.
The pitching is decent, but I do not like the closers. Kolb will not get any K's. And if you were going to carry a MR for holds, why not make one of them Worrell to back up Wagner, just in case.

Team 2 assessment
Again, allot of question marks on IF.
This must be a deeper league.
Iguchi and Boone has a ton of questions around them
The fact that you have two MI as UT is also very very suspect.
The OF is nice.
I like the pitching here. But you need another closer.


Power to team 1
Speed Tossup
Pitching to team two
Saves to team 1
Holds to team two

I would give the edge to team 1

If I had my choice I would want team A.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
