stuck in the middle with me — this team good enough to ride?

Postby duckbillgates » Sun May 15, 2005 7:19 pm

I have been the victim of some slow starts, but I really liked this team on draft day. Still, I'm in the middle of the pack.
Made a few minor tweaks since then, but it's pretty much as drafted.
We are required to have a backup at each infield position (no DL), and we have a salary cap, so those questionable bench players are probably there because of that.
I know I'm deficient in speed, but I didn't want to chase steals, instead going with some guys that can put up 10 to 15 steals (Renteria, Drew, Lee, Kendall, apparently Huff) to aim for the middle of that category.
How do I look? Stay put or look to deal? I presumably have three really good closers, and we can only start two, but I think the trade value of a closer doesn't hit it's peak until around the All-Star break, when fantasy managers without saves get really desperate.
Leave links. I'll respond.

Quick answer, that team is well-rounded enough to compete for the league title. No real holes. I like it.
