Yahoo winners league ... 12 team 5x5 Roto

Postby MaggsIsMint » Fri Mar 09, 2007 1:27 pm

I really liked my team through 4 rounds and then ...

1.12- D. Wright
2.1- V. Guerrero
3.12- J. Peavy
4.1- D. Lee
5.12- ***A. Dunn***
6.1- B. Sheets
7.12- C. Cordero
8.1- E. Renteria
9.12- J. Papelbon
10.1- D. Haren
11.12- H. Kendrick
12.1- M. Cuddyer
13.12- A. Laroche
14.1- M. Barrett
15.12- D. Bush
16.1- J. Zumaya
17.12- F. Thomas
18.1- J. Patterson
19.12- S. Olsen
20.1- K. Escobar
21.12- G. Matthews Jr.


What a way to kill my average :-o I could probably handle a .260 hitter with my lineup but .234 is gonna kill me. Guess I'm gonna have to sell him for less value then I got him for. Stupid ... I also lost Kinsler 3 picks before me in the 19th round!

Anyways, my lineup:

C- Barrett
1B- Lee
2B- Kendrick
3B- Wright
SS- Renteria
OF- Guerrero
OF- Dunn
OF- Cuddyer
UTIL- Thomas

BN- LaRoche, Matthews Jr.

SP- Peavy
SP- Sheets
RP- C. Cordero
RP- Papelbon
P- Zumaya
P- Haren
P- Bush

BN- Patterson, Olsen, Escobar

Well I feel my hitting is prety solid but Dunn will really kill my average so hopefully somebody with weak power will bite on a trade. My starters are really good also and my relievers should be ok so long as Papelbon does close and I find a couple good ones off the wire.

Thoughts?

Based on rototimes' projections and the results of my 12 team roto league last year I should score 89 points and finish at least 3rd with 89 points.

Anybody? Is my pitching good enough to win me a title?

I think your team is well balanced and can compete. However, like you said, Dunn must go. Also, from all the reports I have read, Papelbon will not be closing this year as sort of an injury prevention plan. That being said you will probably need another closer.

You need to find LaRoche a roster spot, or move him for something. Yes, Paps won't close initially or probably this whole year, so get a closer. I'd say your year depends on how effective your big 3 can be...Peavy/Sheets/Patterson (Haren/Pap/Bush should be good).

Well I have already started pursuing trades and it looks like a couple owners in the league are real good trade partners.

First deal proposed:

Coming: Street, Rollins
Going: Dunn, Thomas, Olsen

This guy has nobody who hit 30+ HR last year and he already has Reyes at SS. He also has Rivera, Lidge and Putz as closers.

Second deal proposed:

Coming: Patterson, Kinsler
Going: Papelbon

This guy seems to like Papelbon as a starter and he already has 2 other good 2B. I also told him I would include Renteria as well since he is after a SS.

Peavy/Sheets/Haren are all injury risks... I've had all of them the last couple years and they've bit me in the ass when they got hurt... but Patterson is a workhorse, so that should help if they falter
