The all ?-mark team

Postby EugeneStyles » Thu Mar 16, 2006 1:00 pm

League is a 7x7 with FPCT and OPS for hitters and Holds and K/9 for pitchers. My pitching is solid. Very solid. I have a chance to be in the top 3 in all 7 pitching cats.

My hitting... well... every single player is a question mark. Some are due for a comeback. Some are solid players who just had an off-year last year. Some are young players - who knows if they'll do what they did last year. And then there's J.D. Drew... :-o


C - R. Hernández (Bal - C)
1B - T. Helton (Col - 1B)
2B - B. Roberts (Bal - 2B)
3B - S. Rolen (StL - 3B)
SS - K. Greene (SD - SS)
CI - A. Huff (TB - 1B,OF)
MI - R. Canó (NYY - 2B)
OF - B. Abreu (Phi - OF)

Wow, for a 10 team league, I love your pitching. Your offense could be ok as long as you have no injuries. But if your bounceback guys start slow, you could be hurting.

Not too bad! Greene and Drew are your weak spots. I'm not sure how well Francoeur is going to be either. The rest is fine. Pitching staff is as good as advertised, too.

Solid team there is alot of ????'s on it but as long as Rolen Canu Drew do good,

also for only 10 teams you shouldnt have Lofton on there, J.Jones from the Cubs is a solid grab. Moving to Wrigley will help him with that solid lineup they already have.

Also I have heard Corey Patterson is having a solid spring. He's most likely on FA as well. But your team is good and should do well.

Yeah, Lofton is a bad one, I admit. I was trolling the WW for steals and grabbed him (I dropped like Kendall or somebody for him). There's gotta be a more solid base-stealer available, or at least someone with upside. OTOH, with 7 cats, SB's probably aren't all that important.

Patterson is already taken, unfortunately. He was the first one I thought to look for on WW.

The one this I see is this

OF - M. Holliday (Col - OF)
OF - J. Francoeur (Atl - OF)
OF - J. Drew (LAD - OF)


Drew is a basket case year by year
Holiday is suppose to do better
Francouer cant hit lefties.

Abreu is solid of course.. but a trade of Holiday or Fran. for someone less popular but more of a sure thing would not be bad.

Obviously your pitching is solid and will certainly carry your team. With pitching that strong, your hitting does not necesarrily have to be top notch, which it isn't, no offense of course. Your hitting is good enough though with that pitching to make a serious run at the championship, I would try and move around a couple of those "questionmarks" with a solid pitcher and land a stud bat, that way you have a little more balance, otherwise it looks pretty good to me.

The offense could be very solid. Why do you hae bentacourt though? already got enough relievers, not sure yo need another. Plus, he may not even get holds.
