Just Drafted. Weak?

Postby fantasy baller » Mon Mar 12, 2007 3:58 pm

Damn the 12th spot!
5x5 mixed league h2h 12 teams: R,HR,RBI,SB,AVG; W,K,SV,ERA,BB

C: (I knew I forgot something!! Edit) Johjima
1B: Texeira
2B: Cano, Kinsler
3B: Glaus (SS eligible)
SS: Carlos Guillen
OF: Crawford
OF: Baldelli
OF: Crisp
Util: Crede
Bn: Murton

SP: Halladay
SP: Bedard
RP: Wagner
RP: C Ray
P: Cain
P: Harden
P: Glavine
Bn: Bray, Wheeler, McCarthy

Can't say I'm surprised I had to go for balance, since I drafted 12th. Tell me what you think of my team, since I am obviously biased (unfavorably) about my own team.

Thinking of moving Cano and Glavine, looking for that power bat (ala Derek Lee).

Garko and Dan Johnson are available, and so is homer bailey.

Drop Bray and take a chance with Homer?

Thanks! WHIR!!!!

a decent squad, no Catcher????? I would keep Bray as Homer may not make the opening day roster, ur darkhorse of ur offense is the health of Rocco Baldelli, and it looks like Murton will be platooning this season until one of the other OF gets hurt.... not a bad pitching staff, you should do ok this season....

I would drop Bray and look for a sleeper bat (see: Alex Gordon, etc.). I would also consider obtaining an OF with some pop. You have a surplus of speed in the OF, which generally is where most of your power comes from...Maybe targeting an Alex Rios (who could breakout as a 5 tool guy this year) would be better for improving your OF.

Please return the favor:

your pitching staff is alright. i think you got a steal at 12 in crawford. it looks like you dont have strikeouts as a batters cat so take advantage of that. go after a big bat thats major flaw is strikes. i think you should cano and baldelli for some power in OF. pitching can be worked on but i wouldnt make any major moves with it because overall it is above avg staff.

what do you think about my team?

i think that the hitting is ok. i dont think you need to look for a power bat because tex will bounce back. you've got cano and kinsler, so try and trade for a solid pitcher. harden halladay, glavine, and bedard are good, but i think if you could move for a good pitcher then do it. also, you are a little thin on offense. try to find a bat on ww if you can.
thanks for the reply to mine

First off, I wouldn't really disparage drafting out of the 12 hole - I've found that drafting at the end of the snake is pretty advantageous, especially in years like this one when there isn't necessarily one clearcut dominant player (a la Bonds in his prime). Having the 12th and 13th pick is a great spot to be in, and you made out decently with Crawford and Teix.

Pitching is solid; I think your instinct about moving Glavine is a good one -- might as well take a chance on a youngster with some upside. But no rush for that - you can always wait to see if anyone on the waiver wire stands out or even use the slot for spot starters.

Like others say, I would move Cano or Kinsler, since you don't need both. Cano has more trade value; maybe you can package him with Baldelli or Crisp to pick up a bigger bat in the outfield. Some more power would be nice.
