10 team 5x5 mixed keeper (4) league

Postby jamesllegade » Tue Mar 20, 2007 5:41 pm

This is my first big money league and I feel like i absolutley killed it. Standard roto format with a couple of tweaks; must start a CF, LF, RF as opposed to general OF's and the pitching slots go SP/SP/SP/SP/RP/RP/P (the commish wants to prevent closer hording) with a cap at 1300 innings


1. Ortiz 1B
2. Wright 3B
3. Ichiro RF
4. V. Wells CF
5. V. Martinez C
6. K-Rod RP
7. Cano 2B
8. Brett Myers SP
9. CC Sabathia SP
10. Erik Bedard SP
11. Chris Young SP
12. Fielder UTL
13. C. Guillen SS
14. T. Jones RP
15. Beckett SP
16. Bonds LF
17. Eric Byrnes BENCH (LF/CF/RF)
18. Cuddyer BENCH (1B/RF)
19. Huff BENCH (3B/1B/RF)
20. Teahan BENCH (3B/LF/RF)
21. Borowski RP
22. J. Patterson BENCH SP
23. T. Hudson BENCH SP
24. J. Maine BENCH SP
25. Oliver Perez BENCH SP

Thoughts? Needs? I have looked at some projections and seem to come out a bit low in average (though they have Cano below .300 which I dont agree with). Outfield might be a bit high risk with Wells getting his contract already and Bonds ready to go to court and Ichiro popping off about his contract... But I feel like my bench goves me some leeway in the OF & at the corners.

You need a second closer!


Very nice team. Why are you starting bonds instead of cuddyer or Byrnes?

excellent team. Well balanced.

i like Byrnes, i think he can have another good season.
i also like Huff. i think hes been undervalued and should have a nice season hitting in Baltimore.
isnt Baltimore a good place for HR's to LH hitters?

We have to start a left fielder instead of 3 random of's.

I figure Bonds will be good out of the gate and if he falters I can replace with Byrnes is I need speed or Huff or Teahan depending on who is hotter.

As far as closers I am hawking this website;

Somebody stole my handcuff for Jones (Zumaya)... and borowski isn;t great but I dont know who I should grab behind him.

I'm thinking Stokes could be good for TB... or Someone named Lindstrom (not even added to yahoo yet) for FLA. You know of any sleeper closers?

I am playing the upside on all my pitchers... Sabathia SHOULD win more than he does but was unlucky last year. Chris Young, Bedard, Myers... all COULD win 15+ but seem not too.

Wins are a bitch.

You like Cano at 2nd? I took him kinda high (70th pick) which was my only regret of the draft.

Yeah Huff was unlucky on BABIP last year... hitting in the meat of a improving O's lineup in a favorable park... Like him this year. Teahan is a good flexible guy... 3B/LF/RF who can also steal double digit bases. I am pretty happy with my O.

You need more wins, and with 4 sp slots, I go and look for the best possible closer who qualifies at sp.
