Major Confusion

Postby KSig24 » Wed Feb 21, 2007 8:30 pm

I have been playing fantasy baseball for years and always draft great teams, however I can never seem to place higher than 4th place. I play in roto and H2H Yahoo leagues mainly. Does anyone have any proven advice on how to win? Here is what I have to start off with this season (my keepers).

Wright
Mauer
Morneau
Verlander
V. Wells
A. Jones
B. wagner/Delmon/Bonderman (cant decide)

Looks like good keepers to me. Have you looked on the yahoo page to see what categories you win big in and which you lose big in? I always seem to draft crappy closers. My goal this year is to take a KRod or Nathan early...earlier than I normally take closers.

As far as head-to-head goes, it's a crapshoot, man. Whoever is hot in the playoffs will take the trophy. Last year in my 14-team league, we had a sub-.500 team squeak into the postseason and win it all.

You have a pretty good infield to put it mildly..got 1/2/3 base nailed down and arguably the best catcher out there.

If you can..what does it cost to keep a player and for how long can you use a keeper? Part of me says to toss Verlander unless you keep him DIRT cheap..then keep Wagner or Delmon. If you don't want to do that then keep Bonderman but I myself don't trust Verlander a bit.

Draft a decent shortstop somewhere, then get a decent closer and SP. You have 2 good OF's but I don't know how many other spots in a lineup you need to fill (I'm assuming Default Yahoo which is 8 fielding and a util).
