How does my new team look?

Postby Peloquin » Fri Mar 31, 2006 8:36 pm

Yahoo 12 team roto. I'm not sure what to think. It looks to have potential barring injury. Please let me know what the strengths and weaknesses are as well as who I should drop if any. All advice is appreciated. Thanks.

I projected this team using Rotowire's projections and my new Excel projection tool (thanks to GTWMA work with examining loads of 12 team standard leagues to find the %tile's for each statistic).

I did full projected games for all your starters on offense and filled in the difference with 52 games from Granderson. I projected 79% full season from Escobar and Bedard to fit this into 1250 max IP.

#'s R: 853 HR: 264 RBI: 887 SB: 88 AVE: 299
%tile R: 60 HR: 90 RBI: 80 SB: 30 AVE: 100
Points R: 8 HR: 11 RBI: 10 SB: 4 AVE: 12 Offense: 40 - 45

#'s W: 83 SV: 82 K: 1155 ERA: 3.42 WHIP: 1.234
%tile W: 60 SV: 40 K: 80 ERA: 90 WHIP: 80
Points W: 8 SV: 5 K: 10 ERA: 11 WHIP: 10 Pitching: 39 - 44

Total Points: 79 - 89

Monitor the Jenks situation...you don't want to cut down to two closers when you don't have 40+ guys. Keep an eye on ways to improve your run production...especially if you can find some way to get a good leadoff hitter that can steal bases too (your only really weak spot other than saves where I think your different number of starting positions in the pitching staff skews things a bit).

I think you will be hurt in SBs (Weeks might get 20, Lee/Holliday/Gomes probably 15).....it's always nice to have that one guy that can win you the category by himself (Reyes, Figgins, etc.)
Your average will not be that good, as I expect Weeks to hit around .270, I expect a drop-off from Mora, Tejada and Matsui....

I think all the rest of your hitting will be ok (you might need one more 30+ HR bat), although you do have some injury risk Hafner and no one that good on your bench to fill in

I like your pitching a lot.....Vazquez will have a pretty good year, Rincon will be great for your ratios/holds....... I think Escobar will be decent as well


Overall, I like it for a 12 team league......however, there's always room to improve!
