Best 12 team ever?

Postby rotterdam_82 » Fri Feb 17, 2006 10:49 am

I have no idea how they let me do this. I'm not bragging, I probably just got lucky...... ;-7

12 team Yahoo public league. Roto 5x5.



C- M.Barrett
1B- P.Konerko
2B- M.Giles
3B- A.Ramirez 8th round!
SS- F.Lopez
OF- J.Bay Traded for Wright after A-Ram shocker
OF- G.Sizemore
OF- A.Huff
UT- T.Hafner
BN- J.Hermida
BN- B.Giles

wow...that looks almost like an 10-teamer, lol...i would love to see who those other guys were drafting before you picked up A-Ram in the 8th...good trade of Wright, i think Bay will put up better numbers than him...your closers are your only real question mark, but if they hold up they will produce very well...i like the choices of cain and liriano as backup SP's because they have so much upside...i think you should start cain over shields...very impressive draft, should dominate in all hitting categories, and be up there in most pitching categories

You should absolutely walk that league!

The only thing missing is a stud closer, but who cares? With 4 closers anyway, you can afford not to have a stud!

I would like to have one more hitter on the bench - in roto, you want to maximise the number of games played, so it's good to have players to slot in when teams don't have a scheduled game.

Here's mine, please:

dont get too happy yet.... i had a team last year that i thought i did amazing in, but injuries and 1 year wonders hurt me

but who cares about me... really solid team ;-D

maybe one weak spot beside a stud closer is SP depth....

Nice team. You must've been drafting with infants if you got A-Ram so late. Good move to haul in Bay because you would have Wright, A-Ram, and Hafner fighting for 2 spots. It's a well-rounded squad. You have some relatively cheap closers in Benitez, Fuentes, and Ray. All you'd probably need is a top closer and a Carl Crawford perhaps, but you can't complain. On paper, your team rocks.

Funny you should mention that, someone just offered me Crawford for Sizemore. I accepted of course. If it doesn't get voted down I'll probably leave the league in protest!

That really is a hell of a team. As someone up above said, you could use a really dependable closer, and if I were to address something next, it would be that. Why not deal Benitez or Gordon along with Ray or Fuentes for someone like Turnbow or Cordero? You'd still have 3 closers, but at least one of them would be very dependable, and I could see an owner doing a deal like that.
