Am I wrong for thinking this is a pretty decent squad?

Postby StinkyPete » Fri Mar 02, 2007 3:40 am

Yahoo H-2-H 10 team draft. The only big changes from the normal set-up is a second UTIL spot (which I like) and the use of the HLD category instead of WHIP (which I hadn't noticed and had to partially remedy after the draft was done, and which I definitely am not a fan of). I had 6th pick.

The team:

C M Piazza (R17)
1B P Fielder (R14)
2B T Iguchi (off the wire post-draft, for F Sanchez)
3B A Rod (R1)
SS D Jeter (R2)
OF M Holliday (R3)
OF J Dye (R5)
OF J Pierre (R9)
Util J Lugo (R7)
Util J Thome (R8)
BN T Hunter (R10)
BN D Young (R12)
BN M Teahan (R20)

SP R Oswalt (R4)
SP C Sabathia (R13)
SP A Burnett (R16)
RP B Wagner (R6)
RP T Saito (R11)
P J Isringhausen (R15)
P A Heilman (off the wire, a token HLD guy, for T Tulowitzki)
P D Lowe (R18)
BN B Penny (R21)
BN C Lee (R22)
BN V Padilla (R23)

So I think I've got tons of power hitting, decent enough SB to put me somewhere in the middle of the pack, and a solid pack of Win-getters and K-throwers for SP. I realize RP bites a bit, but I'll fix that through the season.

Thoughts?

WHIR!

Thanks,

i like your team, Piazza at DH for the whole season will keep him healthy and productive as he will be hitting clean up. Drop Heilman, he's not that valuable as a MR'er, try and pick up someone else who will post a higher K and lower WHIP.

WHIP doesn't matter in this league, and holds do. I fugre by having the one guy who will get some, I'll beat the opponents who have no "hold"ers. But yeah, normally I would never draft Heilman at all.

Thanks for the input!
