***12 Team Roto 5x5 How'd I do?***

Postby StrongBad » Thu Mar 23, 2006 12:08 am

Ok so I just drafted this team tonight. As I said above there are 12 teams in the league. So here is my team:
C: Victor Martinez
1B: Chad Tracy
2B: Chone Figgins
SS: Miguel Tejada
3B: Aramis Ramirez
OF: Juan Pierre
OF: Pat Burrell
OF: Mat Holliday
Util: Nomar Garciaparra
Bench: Curtis Granderson, Chris Shelton, Mark Loretta, and BJ Upton

SP: Carlos Zambrano
SP: Brett Myers
SP: Brandon Webb
SP: Scott Kazmir
RP: Todd Jones
RP: Chris Ray
Bench: Ervin Santana, Aaron Heilman

Any thoughts on how I did, what I can do to improve, or just anything in general would be nice. Thank you!

The outfield is a little weak I think, but if Granderson plays well, you might be alright. You've got a solid infield.

I like the starting pitching, but be prepared Heilman may end up in the pen after all. As for Jones and Ray, you're shaky in closers for sure. You may want to try trading one of the starters (I'd recommend Kazmir or Santana), and see what you can get. I'd try for a Top 10 closer, and if it doesn't work, just keep trying something until it works.

I think you'll be in the top half for sure.

The OF is weak? Do you mean the bench? Because Holliday and Burrell will both get me Good offensive numbers. I don't like my starters much, especially since Ray remains unproven. I will consider making a trade.

I forgot Holliday was almost a 20-20 guy last year. I can't fault anyone for picking Pierre. Burrell's best advantage is he plays at East Coast Coors. It's not necessarily weak, but not as good as that infield.

As for the starters, you've got young guys who have had some good years, and could do very well this season. I'd rather have that rotation than a potential 1-year fluke in Patterson and the 42-year old Johnson, like I do.

Sorry, that mas my fluke. I meant that I didn't like my relievers. I was picking up guys like Webb and Kazmir in rounds past 10. So I figured they were good steals.

good team overall, but nomar scares me and so does Tracy. Ur relievers rn't so great but saves can always b found on the wire so keep an eye out for that. Ramirez is gonna b big this yr i think

Why is Chad Tracy so bad? I figured it wouldn't kill to take a chance. Any other opinions?
