Bad Ass Team?

Postby thestoole » Thu Mar 23, 2006 2:36 pm

We just completed our 12-team standard roster 5x5
auction draft and I have the most dominant team ever
(in my humble opinion). I am the 2x defending
champion, so this says a ton.


C Ramon Hernandez ($8
C Barajas ($4)

1B Teixera ($22)
CI Delgado ($31)
3B Blalock ($24)
SS Greene (4)
2B Loretta ($3)
MI Kinsler ($5)
OF Pierre ($22),
OF Berkman ($10)
OF Monroe ($1)
OF Preston Wilson ($4)
OF Carlos Lee ($25)
U Helton ($34)
Bench Taveras ($5)

P Santana ($20)
P Harden ($9).
P Blanton ($1)
P Kazmir ($7)
P Lieber ($1)
P Lowe ($1)
P Westbrook ($1)
P Clemens ($4)
RP Lightenberg ($1)
RP Ray ($4)
RP Weathers ($1)
RP Burgos ($1)
RP Miceli ($1).

As you can see my philosophy is to get High Value
hitters and cycle pitches throughout the year (double
starters). At the end, of the season I start tinkering
with the pitching line-up to strengthen specific
categories.

Here is my question do I have enough steals to drop
Taveras? It might help alot of other teams, but
Sanders, Patterson, Matos, Cameron, Mackowiak who all
have speed and a little bit of power. Also Towers is a
maybe should I drop him for promising I. Snell or
ageless David Wells?

Where can I get some cheap saves? :,-(

You really have to see it in the context of the league. Plus I plan to rotate pitchers.

You have an unproven relief core and your starting pitching outside of Santana and Harden is either full of decent, unproven, or questionable choices (Clemens being the latter). You don't have much speed outside of Pierre and Your MI is decent at best. So while your team has some standout choices, this is not a dominant team.

I am not defending my team just my strategy. Relief can be gotten off the wire. Plus if you have Harden and Sanatana and play the wire irght you can be dominant. People always think that the team you start with you end with. This is seldom the case. You just have to have 8-10 outstanding choices and play the wire to your advantage. Listen and learn fellow baseball poolies.

Oh, I am the king of Wire moves. I am not saying anything other than your team as it stands isn't as good as the title you put for the thread. I hope you win, but this team hasn't won bragging rights over some other teams I've seen in 12 team leagues.

Questionable????

Clemens is quaestionable? If I drop him he will be picked up in a split second. We have 5 bench positions and he is certainly worth a spot given his potential dominance if signed.

Moreover, what about Taveras? Doesn't he have some speed?
