Just Drafted...Thoughts? WHIR

Postby ROC AllStars » Wed Mar 21, 2007 1:33 pm

10 team FP league:

SP: Johan Santana, Felix Hernandez, Dan Haren, Scott Kazmir, Ervin Santana, Brad Penny, Greg Maddux, Pedro Martinez (DL)

RP: BJ Ryan, Francisco Cordero

OF: Lance Berkman, Torii Hunter, Raul Ibanez, Delmon Young, Coco Crisp, Milton Bradley, Pat Burrell

1B: Carlos Delgado, Adrian Gonzalez

2B: Rickey Weeks, Luis Castillo

SS: Jimmy Rollins, Julio Lugo

3B: Ryan Zimmerman, Eric Chavez

C: Ramon Hernandez

Any thoughts? I feel i'm thin in the OF (we start 4), but I'm not sure I can make a trade that will strengthen me there without significantly weakening me at other positions. Any thoughts are appreciated, WHIR!

That is an absolute sick rotation....(love those 10 team leagues)

SP - SOLID Grade A
RP - SOLID Grade B+
OF - Grade B
1B - Grade B
2B - Grade B- (potential B+ if Weeks delivers)
3B - Grade B (watchout for Zimmerman, no more Soriano leading off, numbers could drop)
SS - Grade A (Lugo versatility will be great)
C - Grade B-

Great team, I think you got yourself a winner,

Position strength is obviously SP, so move someone from there, for that OF help you think you need.

PLEASE HELP:

Yeah, I'd try and move a pitcher for a stud outfielder. Otherwise, looks good.

I like the look of your team. Yeah, if you start 4 OF then trading a SP for one might be a good option. Besides that, no glaring weaknesses.

SP - A+ Excellent front line with Johan and Felix. But the depth is the most impressive.

RP - A- Depends on how your league works, but I usually like to have 3 closers. If you only need 2 (or can have 2), that's an A+.

OF - B- Berkman will have a great year. You have a lot of potential, so hopefully something pans out. I could see all 6 of those guys being solid, or I could see them all flopping. A ton of talent though. Especially Hunter, Ibanez, and Burrell.

1B - B+ I like Delgado. Gonzalez would be a stud in any other ballpark.

2B - B- Most people would probably have this one higher. I just don't like Weeks.

SS - A+ Rollins is a stud, and Lugo for depth at 3 positions (2B, SS, 3B), very nice.

3B - B+ Not sold on Zimmerman, but good backup with Chavez. Call me crazy, but I think Chavez returns to form this year. He's too talented a player to stay down.

C - A- Hernandez is just outside that top tier.

I would package Kazmir or Santana with one of your OF's for an upgrade at OF. Other than that, I like your squad.

I would try and move Kazmir and Young or Ibanez for a stud OF or A Gon(unless that is your flex) and an OF for an upgrade but you have a solid squad.
Another option is packaging Zimm on last years numbers for an upgrade at OF.
You also left a comment on my post but I screwed up and it's Haren and not Harden in the deal.

Solid team. No glaring weaknesses. With a few smart moves over the course of the season you should definitely compete with this team. I think you have plenty of decent options at OF, so I wouldn't worry about it being thin. Out of those 7 you should be able to find 4 good starters.
