Which team is better?

Postby totalshredder » Wed Apr 20, 2005 8:45 am

Alright guys, me and another fellow from my league(14 team head-to-head) have been wondering for quite a while which one of our teams is better(and boy have we). So I decided to take it to the experts! Which team do you think is better, and why? This is all for fun, but if you could actually look through both teams before voting that would be great! I'll tell you which one is mine later (mine is the better one) ;)

Here is my analysis

Team 1:

Pretty good balance with the bats. Helton/Blalock/Dunn/Ichiro/Konerko is a SOLID combo of bats to have. Feliz has been pretty nice thus far this year as well.

The pitching staff is good, not great. Having Oswalt as an ace is great, Mulder is a pretty good number two, and Livan as a three is pretty solid. Relief with Mesa and Rusch is ugly, but at least Mesa will get the saves if nothing else.

Team 2:
STUDDED OUT OFFENSE. Wow, this offense is stacked top to bottom. IF of Thome/Boone/Wright/Young will fill up the stat sheet. The OF/util with Beltran/Sheff/Finley/Drew is studded out once they start raking like they are supposed to. And morneou on the bench, damn lol.

The ugly part, the pitching. Carpenter as a #1? Ouch, maybe a number 3 on most teams. Having Penny as a #2 is real shaky as well. Closers are better than team 1 with Cordero and Tsao.

Verdict: I like Team 2 better, a loaded offense, a shaky rotation, but good closers make me vote for team 2 ;-D


Help with mine?
