Good team, could be better EDITED LOOK AGAIN

Postby nakgxf » Mon May 08, 2006 2:56 am

Heres the roster and the league...tell me what you think I could do to improve. Lately I've been getting a lot of R, but not a lot of RBI.

Alright, here are my changes...


I. Rodriguez
C. Utley
J. Reyes
T. Iguchi
M. Ensberg
P. Burrell
M. Ramirez
K. Mench
B. Broussard --> gone for Kearns
R. Hernandez --> lookin to trade for good 1B or OF
C. Tracy

A. Harang
E. Bedard
B. Wagner
T. Gordon
D. Haren
F. Rodney --> gone for Dempster
F. Garcia
J. Garland
C. Carpenter
C. Young

League Info:
Yahoo head-to-head
Batting: R, H, HR, RBI, SB, BB, TB, E, AVG
Pitching: W, L, CG, SO, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

Kearns, Drew, H. Ramirez, E. Encarnacion, Millwood, N. Robertson and Chacon are all still FAs...pick em up?

Any needs besides these. I'm also looking to maybe package 2-for-1 Ramon and WHO for a big player. Smart idea? Or should I get rid of Pudge instead? tell me what you think.

Pretty decent all-around team, but I would pick up Dempster, Drew, and Kearns and drop Rodney, Broussard, and either Garland/Garcia. Also, trade away Ramon H somehow, there's no need to have 2 catchers taking up your roster spots unless you start 2 catchers. You've got plenty of RBI guys, so don't worry, the RBIs will come.

Yeah you have to drop Rodney. He won't be getting many saves anytime soon. Dempster is closing so he is the natural replacement.

Switch Hernandez and Kearns. Catchers rarely get you big points and Kearns is doing ok this year. He can also be an RBI guy for you. If you have a utility spot you can get him in there more often.

I'd make the closer switch for Dempster as well. JD Drew for Broussard will be a big upgrade. Drew has been healthy and can produce consistently especially if J Kent heats up. Drew will be a huge help with RBIs and Manny has been off to a slow start so don't forget you should be getting a ton from him in the coming months. Also, Utley/Reyes is a ridiculous middle infield. I'd leave your big guys alone for now and do some housekeeping with your pickup/WW players.

To be honest with you if he can stay healthy, I would take Drew any day of the week over Kearns. Also I like what I'm seeing out of Encarnacion. Nate Robertson has been great so far this season, but your staff looks fine.

Thanks for your input on mine. I appreciate it.

I think I would probably consider swapping closers (Rodney for Dempster), exchanging Broussard for Drew (praying for his good health of course), & I'd consider Encarnacion. He has had a solid start this year & seems good as well.

I disagree. I would keep Ramon and move Ivan. Ramon will have a slightly better average and more RBI. I think Ivan will have a few more runs. I would lose Broussard and get JD Drew, he is making contact better than I have ever seen him do. I would also think about getting Kearns short term also. You pitching staff cannot be upgraded from the Fa you listed.

I wold play Edwin Encarnacion in a utility spot, he will have better power numbers than alot of OF's.

Think about swapping Rodney wiht someone.

I agree that Dempster would be a better closer than Rodney and Drew or Kearns can replace Brousard.

agree with everyone else...

grab Dempster as he will be good for saves since Chi won't be blowing anyone out anytime soon...

and then go with Drew, Kearns or Encarnacion. Drew is a stud when healthy but that never lasts and Kearns and EE are doing real good with a Cincy team that is scoring a crap load of runs this year...

Alright so I dropped Broussard and picked up Kearns, and dropped Rodney for Dempster...now what?

Do you see any possible trades that would be good for me to make?
