Need Honest Opinions....WHIR

Postby HulkSmash » Wed Mar 28, 2007 10:29 am

Here's who I got:

12 Teams, Custom scoring

C: Posada
1B: Teixeira
2B: B. Phillips
3B: ARod (hopefully he works out this season)
SS: E. Renteria
OF: C. Lee, Dunn, Ibanez
Util: Thome
Bench: Youkilis, Willingham, Blake, Wiggington, Ensberg

SP: Harang, Bedard
RP: Ryan, Saito
P: Borowski, Gonzalez (soon to be replaced by Jorge Julio), Proctor

The only 2 I'm specifically worried about is Posada and Renteria. Any thoughts?

tough to say not knowing your custom scoring.

even when arod doesnt "work out" he still puts up big numbers.

i would worry about posada also...he is getting up there in age. he is in a great lineup though.

your SP is a little suspect to me but i dont know what value SP has in your league. harang is my 4th best SP on my team in my 12 team league. i like bedard this year but he is in a tough division and needs a bounce back year.

Posada's value goes up because you use BBs. He's patient and will draw more walks than most catchers. I'm a little worried about the lack of depth of your SP. I might try to go get a guy like Livan who won't cost you a lot (if anything) and will eat innings and get a couple of wins in a weak division.

very similar scoring to my league. i dont understand why you have so few SPs though.

this is a points league that just compiles stats all year? or is it head to head with points determining each game?

a good pitcher is putting up around 16-17ppg when they pitch. a good OF may put up 3.

pitchers pitch every 5 days. 5 x 3 = 15.

SP is 16 points over those 5 days.

do you have roster limits/games played limits, etc.?

I wouldn't worry about Posada...rather, I'd worry about Thome...try to sell high on him NOW. Other than that I think your team looks more than fine. Harang is underrated and Bedard is going to the AllStar game this year.

Help!

League only allows for 2 SP, 2 RP, and 3 P. Holds are a category, which is why I've got Proctor.

i disagree with a the post two above me....i think Thome is gonna put up great numbers this year and something tells me you stole him in your draft...

obviously, as most people have stated your pitching looks pretty weak....if your pitching is still weak a few weeks into the season check to see if any of the pitchers from the Top Prospects list have been called up (i.e. Philip Hughes..would be a bet I'd take)

I like your hitting. I would consider dropping a bench player for another SP, though. Pitching looks questionable. Who is available on the ww?

I would fill every "P" spot possible with a STARTING pitcher. Given the scoring system you mentioned, it's hard to imagine a closer getting more points over the course of a season than a reasonable starter, even a WW or FA starter.

And this is NOT ROTO. Just because Holds is a category doesn't mean you should try to compete in that category. If a "holds" guy produces 100 points over the season and an SP produces 101 points, you want the SP 100% of the time. Your holds pitcher will not outproduce guys who are likely still availible at SP. Even guys like Hudson, Sowers, Igawa, Bonser, Maine, etc., who are all probably on your FA list right now, will probably earn twice as many points on their W-L record alone than any holds guy will earn in the "holds" category.
