Am I in it to Win IT???? WHIR

Postby Deeznutz » Sat May 20, 2006 12:34 pm

I'm curious on your opinions of my team. I think I need to make a trade, but I'm not sure what to trade for. Some say I need pitching, but I think my pitching actually looks good. The worst starter I have is Felix at this point. Some say I should probably sell high on Swisher and Holliday, but don't you guys think they are going to keep it up?

Please give me comments on my team, positive or negative. If I have to...who on my team should I be selling high to buy low. Your help is much appreciated and I thank all of you in advance!

I think your pitching is fine. Ks are pretty important in your league. Its actully two categories Ks and k/9, and you stocked yourself with some big time K pitchers (Kazmir, King Felix, Escobar, Liriano). Nice job there.

Hitting is where I would concentrate. Ops is not a cagetory, but it might as well be, with BB, 2b, and 3b in there. You have power, but also guys that will not have a high Ops.

I would sell high on Swisher, and try to pick up a high Ops guy like B. Giles or Berkman. A cheap guys to consider would be Overbay and G. Anderson. Overbay batting 5th for Toronto, a nice 2b hitter. Perhaps Garrett Anderson, although he's got injury issues.

Thanks for the help on mine.

Since your league uses Losses, BB's, and ER's, it doesn't help to run a lots of pitchers out there each week. Also, Saves are generally less important with added categories. Your league also rewards ensuring that you never miss a day with your position players, as even mediocre hitters will provide offense and can only hurt you in BA. Your currently carrying 4 mediocre closers who really only help in a couple spots.

I would try to condense your ptiching staff, offering up two for ones and using the empty roster spots on extra multi-postion players. By using fewer, quality starters and closers you'll cut out your negative stats and the extra postion players will ensure that you have a player playing in each postion almost every day.

I think your offense is pretty good from top to bottom. You seem to have everything covered in that lineup, good work.

Your pitching worries me a bit, it does have the potential to put together a great year, but also a rocky up and down year. I would try and sell a couple of them to get a more proven number 1 to help anchor your staff.

If you do that, you have a great chance of winning it.

Your team is legit and easily could win your league. Your hitting is really solid, and doesn't need much tweaking. Your pitching is also good, but a lot of the talent on the team is not proven (Kazmir, Liriano,King Felix). Maybe try to get a Buehrle type pitcher who your can count on? I don't know though, I wouldn't try to mess around w/your team too much.

I would try to sell high for Swisher but not Holliday. I might be biased b/c I have HOlliday on my team but he hit 19 bombs in only 125 games last year, so his offensive explosion was sort of predictable. Swigher though...I just don't see him being a huge producer for an entire year.

First off, great trade! You'll be reaping the rewards on beltran/bay/howard all season long with dominant power #'s. I like your offense, solid at every spot with some good backup options too. You could use a lights out closer to replace Paps, but I wouldn't sell the farm to get one. Maybe try dangling Swisher or Holliday for BJ Ryan? Otherwise, I'm not too keen on selling Swisher or Holliday as I think they'll be solid throughout the year (35 HR territory for both).

Thanks for your help w/mine.

WOw!!!! Thats a great trade Bay Howard and Beltran are awesome. I think u need another pitcher. Your staff worries me a bit also. Maybe trade Aramis Ramirez for a top pitcher from a team in need of a third baseman

The way your scoring works, you would definately do better with a couple of aces, that a bunch of "good pitchers". Yeah, I would go after guys like Peavy, Pedro, Burhle who are reliable, solid, and get you the K's that you need. You've done a pretty good job so far, but I would try to add one stud to that rotation.
