Old injury risks + rookies=Awesome Team (W/Draft position!)

Postby Iguana » Thu Mar 23, 2006 4:23 pm

This is not the kind of team I usually like to have, but everyone on my roster has so much upside, that even if a couple of them fail or get hurt, I should still be very strong. My strategy was to pick for value, and my league seemed way too afraid off older guys and rookies this year, so I took them when I saw the opportunity. Tell me what you think of my team, any critique, feedback etc.:

5x5 Roto, 12-Team extremely comepetitive draft (no weak owners helping keep good guys out there). 1600 Max Innings.

I have also listed the round I drafted guys in so you can see the value I got. Any advice, thoughts, comments are greatly appreciated.

overall i'd say you have a good team. You did take some risk with the older players - bonds, clemens - if they produce like you want them too you should be sitting pretty good but if they dont you might be in a little trouble... only my opinion though

Personally I think you really need to address SP. I realize you waited a little to start drafting SP, which is usually a good strategy, but personally I don't think you have any top pitchers you can count on. Schmidt is a big question mark in my opinion, I dont know if schilling or clemens will even play... haren, perez, weaver and washburn are all decent, but certainly not what you need to get to the top... I'd try and target a top 5 SP and see if you can get one for one of your more questionable starters and a bat.

Thanks for the feedback Ernie. Yes, I would like to acquire a reliable starting pitcher, or in lieu of that, plug in some good Middle Relivers to keep my ERA down.

Hopefully I can trade one of my hitters for a solid starting pitcher.

starting pitchers are questionable...roger clemens is retired...
and schmidt is iffy and aging etc etc

perez is...well...inconsistent

other than your starting pitchers, your team is good :-D
