Yahoo Public 12 team 5x5

Postby vdragon » Mon Apr 04, 2005 5:20 pm

I'm a total n00b, but I've been trying my best to do research and find strategies on how to play.
I've heard the common strategy is to draft hitting, then closers, then starting pitchers...is this true? What's another common strategy?
When is it best NOT to play a person and leave a slot open?...and why?
Please rate my team... Thanks!

Don't worry about the "BN" designations, I'll rotate the active players each day.

I'm sold on your pitching until you get down to Wright and Marquis. Not sold on either of those two but other than that very good.

You have a well balanced offence but I'm worried about Reyes' health and your bench (past mench) is a little weak in my opinion. If all your players hold up, you should do well. Your outfield is frightening.

Concidering you don't realy have any 'stars' (maybe santana) its a very good lineup. Top 4 I'd say.

Thanks for the quick reply rotterdam!

I'm hoping Wright will be able to adjust and take over the 4th spot from Brown.
As for Mrquis, I forgot that I dropped him for Cordero - Was, and now I notice I have 4 RPs... is that too many? I heard it's best to only keep SPs and 2-3 closers, and NO long relievers.

Most long releivers are brought in for blow-out games, so I'd steer clear. Unless you can get someone like Scott Shields on the waiver line.

I like to have lots of starting pitching myself, but if I was you I'd drop Marquis and see what closers/good solid releif is available on the waiver line. If one of your RP's go down injured, your screwed.
