Team Altering (How'd I do?) I'll help you!!

Postby Warpigs » Sat May 13, 2006 5:19 am

In a competitive 12-team Yahoo 5x5 Roto league. I've been working as hard as possible in improving my roster. I'm currently in second place overall, and just got some guys off the DL...

My current roster:

C-Mauer
1b-Thome
2b-Weeks
3b-DWright
ss-Jeter
OF-ISuzuki
OF-KGriffey Jr.
OF-Carlos Lee
UT-Helton
Bench- MLowell, KGreene
P (start five)-Beckett, Clemens, Capuano, KEscobar, DBush, Liriano, Papelbon, BJRyan, Otsuka

My original roster (right after draft):
C-Mauer
1b-JGiambi
2b-Weeks
3b-DWright
ss-Jeter
OF-ISuzuki
OF-Damon
OF-MOrdonez
UT-ARowand
Bench- Mench, Hillenbrand, Counsell, Eckstein
P- RJohnson, Beckett, Cliff Lee, DDavis, NLowry, JLieber, Capuano

I know I'll need to improve starting pitching as the year goes on -- but what do you all think?

I think that it might be a decent idea to try to replace Weeks, he's a good IRL player but his fantasy value is kind of questionable for me at this point.

Some of the ones currently floating around include Wakefield, Koronka, VPadilla, Tomko, Chacon, McCarthy, JWestbrook, Pineiro, CHPark, etc.

I wouldn't know who to drop for any of these, either. There are some guys I've been watching, but it will be hard to part with anyone on this roster.

I'm currently using Lowell in Weeks' place to help with BA, RBI, etc.

Sad yto say but, I kinda like your original roster more. That you couldn't win with the guys yiu have now. But, hey, at least you got rid of the Unit, right? :) I'm just a little nervous about Griffey over Damon, could come back to bite ya!
Happy to help in return, Please leave a link!!!

I know you may freak out when I say this but I think you should drop Otsuka... you have two good closers already in Papelbon and Ryan... so I would drop him and pick up Chacon...

Thanks for helping me out! ;-D

I would drop Lowell and pick either Tomko or Chacon. I think Tomko will have better matchups 80% of the time and they are similair in skill.

I think you did some solid work, and you didn't sell out your team to get the guys you got - the best of your roster stayed put. That's good work, that is. ;-D

Your offense is better now with CLee, Helton, Griffey. Your sp needs some help, mainly Clemens to pitch.
