I hate injuries...what do you think of my team? WHIR

Postby andrew14 » Wed Jun 22, 2005 8:46 pm

Okay, I thought my offense was set until Mora got hurt...hopefully he won't be out too long. Until then, I picked up Garabito and moved Figgins to 3B. When Mora is healthy, I'll likely drop Garabito for a middle reliever with good numbers like Seanez or Politte to help lower my ratios/get some extra Ks, or maybe pick up Westbrook if he's looking more solid. What do you think of my team for the long-term, especially my pitching, in a 14 team league? Can I hold on to first, or do I need to improve somewhere? I'll help any good replies or suggestions.

Thanks, here's my roster.

Wow that is a GREAT team for a 14 team league.

Your offense is set, and it is only going to improve when Beltran starts hitting. IF/OF/Util, solid all over, great job.

Your SP has the potential to be great, or it could end up being mediocre. I would try and trade one of your bats + Willis (I personally think he slows down) for a lesser bat and a much more proven SP. Beckett and Eaton both heading or are on the DL, but when they come back, you will have a couple great SPs for the final playoff push.

I think you are ready and prepped to win this league.

haha my fault man, I now see that its WELLS not Willis, just a TAD bit difference eh? ;-)


Second time this week where I screwed up something on a roster, I missed Beltran on someones roster the other day, weird...

Anyways, then I would defintley trade one of your bats for a SP now that I see you don't have Willis.

thanks for your advice in my post. I agree with the above comments, but also offer the following:

do you need 4 closers? if your league is anything like mine, decent closers are in high demand. so perhaps you could combine one of your bats with a closer for an upgrade in pitching? later.

I disagree about trading those bats for pitching.... You're going to dominate offense, especially when Beltran heats up... You have some speed, lots of power, average, etc... And you have more than serviceable starting pitchers and a great set of relievers.... In a 14 team league, if you don't win based on that roster, you had some bad bad luck (which happens to anyone) or whatever it is... Also, you need to wait and see about Mora, don't panic or anything until you know how it is... Then you would be better informed about what to do... Because if you trade a bat now for starting pitching, and Mora happens to be out for a while, then you might have lost a bat that you sorely needed, you know? However, if you don't trade, then you haven't lost anything. If Mora is out for a while, then you say to yourself, 'injuries happen to everyone' and you live with it... You would then know not to trade a batter with high average, for instance... Personally I wouldn't do a thing really, or if I was, then I would try to package a high risk/high reward guy like Beckett along with a solid, lesser guy on offense to gain a better pitcher than Beckett, someone like Peavy or maybe even Johan if that's possible...

Good team with balance and some first half flounders who should pick it up soon like Beltran and Berkman. I would see if I could package a closer with something for an upgrade somewhere else, but overall, you looked primed for a good finish.

i think your team looks good. i'd only worry about beltran and berkman. if they don't heat up, you'll have some holes you need to fill. otherwise, i see no actual weaknesses, hitting or pitching wise.

I think your team looks great. The only thing you may be able to improve would be your starting pitching. Perhaps try to deal a closer...
