Your thoughts on My Team 5x5 12 Team Yahoo League (WHIR)

Postby npeggs » Sun Feb 25, 2007 7:30 pm

My first draft of the year here. I feel like i made some mistakes, especially on 3B and RP, but closers just always went a few picks before i had them queued. I would appreciate any help you guys can offer. I had 5th pick, was pleased to get Howard.

C- Michael Barrett
1B - Ryan Howard
2B - Howie Kendrick
3B - Adrian Beltre
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Jermaine Dye
OF - Johnny Damon
OF - Coco Crisp
UTIL - Hafner
BN - Chris B. Young (OF)
BN - BJ Upton (3B)

SP -Jeremy Bonderman
SP- John Lackey
RP-Brad Lidge
RP-Bob Wickman
P-Pat Neshek
P-Salomon Torres
P-Curt Schilling
BN-Mike Mussina
BN-Kelvim Escobar
BN-Freddy Garcia

I tried to back up my two weakest offensive starters with my sleepers. I do regret taking Kendrick as early as i did (9th round). Any help would be much appreciated. Should i worry about trading for a better closer or stick with what i've got?

Thanks for your help on mine. ;-D

Well, I really like your first two picks in Howard and Hafner. Your infield is solid, Beltre is a question as you said but batting in the #2 hole I think he'll do fine. Not a huge fan of your outfield, because I think Dye is not going to have a great year again. Closers are a question like you said as well, so I might look for a deal in a trade, or keep watch on the waiver wire for closers during the season.

Closer-wise I think you'll be fine. Lidge should be better and Torres should be pretty solid. The only thing you may have to worry about is Wickman losing his job.

I defineatly agree with the outfield poing above. I really don't like Crisp. You could try and move him with one of your benched starters to upgrade.

good team overall but y is mussina sitting on the bench? coco is certainly a risk, so can keep an eye out for other solid outfielders. And wickman is a huge question mark so try to get mike gonzalez on the waivers
