Which team do you think is more likely to prevail in a 10 team 5x5 roto fantasy league?
You think Abreu/Cuddyer/Young is a better OF than Soriano/Holliday/Beltran? Did you mean to say something else? I'm confused. Thanks for the reply though, I think that you gave a thoughtful trade suggestion.
I give the edge to Team A. I think offensively, Team B might have the slight edge, based on outfield depth, but starters and closers go to Team A, and with closers, its not even that close.
Trade might involve an excess closer from Team A (Putz, Jenks) going to Team B, for Cano or Kendrick, as Team B can slot Lugo or Kendrick/Cano into their 2b slot, and Wiggington, while underrated, is a risky starter
Team A - has a lack of speed but all other hitting categories are very strong. Very good SP, a lot of good closers. Should compete to win the league.
Team B - Has the better offense. 3 guys who could steal a lot of bases. Amazing outfield. The pitching staff of team two is weaker at the end but the top two guys are as good as Bonderman/Schmidt. Team B is not as strong in the relief department.
I like Team A more because of the balance between pitching and hitting but both teams are unbelieveably good. How did team B get such a good hitting lineup. Is this a keeper league?
Is this a trick question? I look at team B destroying in their league. Having 3 out of the top 10 OFs, having a top 3 SS, 3B and 2B? I'd give Team A a slight edge in pitching, but Team B has tons of upside in Hernandez, Hamels, Bush and Sanchez.
Team B is much better. I think it is possible to draft team A...Pujols in the first, Pronk and Jeter in the wrap around, etc. You can place each player in a round. On team B there is no way to draft Sori, Miggy Holliday and Beltran without having 4 picks in the first and second round....or having a bunch of idiots in your league. Also Tejada and Paulie are solid 20-25 picks...how does team B get 6 players in the first or second round?
Team B is great but lack of pitching really hurts it.
I would go with Team A because of the value of it overall, BUT, obviously the offense of Team B is slightly better especially with the insane upside of the bench that it has the offense might be enough to win it there.
Neither of the teams is extremeley speedy
Team 2 gets the nod in power
while I think that team A gives you the better BA
Team B will score more R and get more RBIS
Team A's ERA is insanely better than team B although Team A has alot of great RP, maybe try and get Wheeler for Broxton in case that lidge goes down. Trading any of your RP in a package with Cuddyer/Young for an OF upgrade and a decent MR wouldn't be bad
Team B's pitching hsa the upside but if some of hte guys don't come through then the pitching will be hurting but I beleive they win so your ok in that department. Maybe trade one of your insane hitters for 2 high/middle-tier pitchers to help round out the rotation or maybe a CL with some upside and a starter for an insane OF or something to improve Team B's pitching.
