What should i improve in the offseason

Postby zpoole » Tue Oct 04, 2005 11:05 pm

Heres my team, we keep 18 keepers and it is a Yahoo Rotisserie League. i want to make a few trades before we have to name our keepers.
* = keepers. who else should i keep and what should i try to improve. any help would be great. i'm willing to give up on saves for good hitting or starting pitching.
Thanks

I would seriously consider keeping Escobar. He has been injured most of this year but has looked absolutely nasty when he has been healthy. I think the time off will help him recooperate for the 06 season in which he'll pull off 200+ k's and an ERA under 3.5 with 15 wins. In an 18 man keeper league he's worth the last spot, unles you think u can get him in the draft.

i would think about trading Liriano.. his era in the majors should be an eye opener that this guy has alot of adjusting to do... his name is still gold to alot of people, so i would try to package him with Hoffman (since your willing to give up saves) and see if it gets you something big

i agree that Tracy and Escobar would make good keepers.. they're better then Chacin.. so is Batista

For your last 2 I would say Escobar and Baldelli. Escobar's stuff is just nasty, he should be good next year. Baldelli has so much potential, if he can stay healthy, you're looking at 20-25 homers, solid avg. and 20+ steals.

Agree and would rather keep Tracey than K. Wood for reasons cited above.

I would try to keep Escobar. I agree with the comments made earlier about Escobar. He looked healthly the last month, and he has 200k stuff. If he gets run support, he'll win 15 games.

You've got a strong team, I would try to do a 2 or 3 for 1 trade involving D. Cabrera, Chacon, and R. Baldelli. A lot of people like the upsides of these three players, someone already mentioned Baldelli, and your not intending to keep them. Try to get 1 guy you will keep.

Keep Tracy and Escobar. try to trade Baldelli on the news this week of his long term contract with a closer or Liriano for another top tier starter.

i'd keep tracey and baldelli. you have to improve your sp. i'd probably go for some middle tier ones who you might get easily (i.e. haren, sabathia, zito, lackey). try and deal away some of your injury prone players; chipper, maggs, hoffman. i'd dangle them for some younger or safer players.

Hold on to Liriano. It was his first few starts in the majors. Give him more time in the majors before we assume he's got to change the way he pitches.
