Best Team Ever?

Postby Lsquad » Fri Feb 16, 2007 5:09 pm

Its that time of year again... and i'm pretty excited about how my first draft went. I think its a pretty solid club for this 10 team CBS H2H league, but it does have some holes. I could probably use more relief pitching (esspecially given CBS's favorible scoring for saves), but with some luck and diligence I can get some help on the wire; I don't have an elite starter or a real burner, and I don't have as much positional flexability as I'd like. anyway, take a look, and give me your opinion/ rating

C 18 (#180) Kenji Johjima (C SEA)
1B 1 (#1) Albert Pujols (1B STL)
2B 14 (#140) Rickie Weeks (2B MIL)
3B 2 (#20) David Wright (3B NYM)
SS 5 (#41) Jimmy Rollins (SS PHI)
OF 3 (#21) Carlos Beltran (CF NYM)
OF 4 (#40) Carlos N. Lee (LF HOU)
OF 8 (#80) Hideki Matsui (LF NYY)
U Haftner*

P 6 (#60) John Lackey (SP ANA)
P 7 (#61) Ben Sheets (SP MIL)
P 9 (#81) Barry Zito (SP SF)
P 10 (#100) Matt Cain (SP SF)
P 11 (#101) Ervin Santana (SP ANA)
P 12 (#120) Jason Isringhausen (RP STL)
P 15 (#141) Takashi Saito (RP LA)

RS 21 (#201) Howie Kendrick (2B ANA)
RS 19 (#181) Alex Rios (RF TOR)
RS 16 (#160) Rich Harden (SP OAK)
RS Escobar
RS Gagne
RS 22 (#220) John Patterson (SP WAS)

* aquired for Helton/ Contreras


also, there are some players that i think are VERY interesting on the wire. would it be advisible to pick up:


Teahan
adrian gonzalez


Noah Lowry
McCarthy
Anibal Sanchez

id pick up either the big hurt or nomar for batting in place of kendrick. and for pitching id pick up like borowski or dempster for isringhausen. otherwise i would say you had a good draft.

Big Hurt or adrian gonzalez would be good, and this is an awsome team. For example, beltran and wright went 10-11 in a league im in. So nice job. Also rollins at 41 is a steal.

well, i think you go for gagne on the waiver wire this early, if he does come out OK, you have a solid guy. I also would go for the big hurt or teahen for kendrick, weeks will be just fine there at 2B, but Helton is risky and it would be nice to have some backup for him
Reyes and guerrero, the two most blessed players in the league, not to mention the most fun to watch

I couldn't agree more. Solid team and Rollins that late was highway robbery.

right now im not sure but yeah gagne was a definite boost. If he busts well w.e its not a position u were gunna dominate if he has a comeback year it rounds out your squad nicely. Im sure there's some tweaks u could do and trades but it all depends on the other managers

Team looks great. I would look to upgrade Jason Isringhausen and Saito because I do not think they will last the entire year.

Alright, so I just Traded Helton and Contreras for Hafter, meaning I've solidified my Util spot, and now my top six hitters are pretty unbelievible. my question now is: what do i do with the roster spot that the trade netted me? do I add a starting pitcher with high upside? add another hitter? or grab Otsuka and handcuff gagne?


here are some options on the wire:

Thomas
Freel
J. Rivera (DL him)
Posednick
Murton
bradley
duffy
hermedia
Adrian Gonzalez
Conor Jackson
Beltre
Rolen

Garland
Otsuka
Duke
Escobar

Alright, So I picked up Escobar, but now Markakis has hit the waiver wire. concidering my team, does he, or any of the players in the post above deserve a spot on my roster? and who would be worth dropping for a free agent?
