How did I do WHIR

Postby shoelessjoetara » Mon Mar 19, 2007 12:20 am

I am in a14 team mixed 5x5 roto league.
C Mike Piazza
1st Albert Pujols
2nd Robinson Cano
3rd Aramis Ramirez
SS Johnny Peralta
OF Gary Sheffield
OF Matt Holiday
OF Alex Rios
MI Jeff Kent
CI Conor Jackson
DH Alex Gordon
SP John Lackey
SP Felix Hernandez
SP Erik Bedard
SP Tim Hudson
SP Chris Capuano
RP Joe Borowski
RP David Weathers

Corey Hart
Chris Young OF
Josh Johnson
Sammy Sosa
Dan Wheeler
Aaron Hill
Yanieskey Betancourt

I know I will have to get another closer ,but I took wheeler because I think Lidge will not close all season.Could have also used a little more speed also but in a 14 team league it is hard to be competitive in every category or at least win every one.

This is a very strong team for a 14-team league. Saves always present themselves in unexpected places throughout the course of a season, so I wouldn't worry too much about that. I wouldn't be too happy with Peralta as my starting SS, even in a 14 team league, so see if you can't upgrade there. Your OF is a point of strength that you could afford to deal from. Also, Gordon will likely not start the season in the majors, so I wouldn't want him as my starting DH.

Agree with the post above, quite strong for a 14 teamer. Your starting staff is full of guys I love this year. King will emerge as an Elite AL pitcher, Lackey is money and Bedard will be a top 5 AL starter. Peralta I have been high on for the last few years, but after last year, I have my questions. His BA killed me last year. Closer will need to be addressed. Nice job overall

I love your team but I do agree with everyone on Peralta. Lackey, Hernandez, and Capuano i really like but I'm not too thrilled with Bedard and Hudson. What you should do is shop with your outfield because I really like Chris Young.

i think betancourt will help you at SS, I guess you can't be stacked everywhere, but you got studs or young guys who will become that team looks fantastic. You have one solid closer and one who will pick up a fair share of saves. Can you list ww please.

Pretty good team... Offense is solid, but like others said, Peralta is shaky, and Gordon probably won't be starting, at least not at first. Your pitching worries me more though. It's pretty obvious you drafted it late. After Felix and Lackey it's pretty shaky...Bedard and Capuano are decent but nothing special IMO. Hudson is total garbage and you can finally find a better pitcher on waivers. Borowski and Weathers are fringe closers, saves will be a problem. I would consider trading Sheffield...he can get you some pretty good players and I think your offense is more than adequate for a 14-teamer, plus you have Hart and Young primed for breakout seasons who could platoon that third spot.

for a 14 team league it looks really solid.

Your Offense is solid. I agree that you should deal at least rios, if not more from you OF, because hart, and young will put up comparable numbers. As others have stated gordon is starting the year in the minors. I personally think you're fine with peralta for now. See how the season starts. Keep on eye on rich aurillia, I'm under the impression he's going to be hitting 3rd, so he should put up some decent numbers. If not, you can find something on the WW. I see kent regessing, so If you can get good value for him, I might move him, MI doesn't need to give you a ton of production in a league this big. I might try and move for some high upside pitching. You need to take a few risks to win a league this large. Guys like, anthony reyes, cole hamels, even though everyone knows him I think bonderman is going to be a top 10 pitcher this year. some vets like schilling, pettite, and maddux are very under-rated. If you round out your pitching you will certainly be a top 3 team. as others have said saves will emerge. if you have a dl spot pick up tankersley, he's available in a few of my leagues. thanks for mine, hope this helped.
