Good all around? Or not? WHIR

Postby chris_dubyuh » Fri Mar 30, 2007 2:48 am

I just finished drafting this team and in my eyes I don't see any large weaknesses and I'm kind of proud of myself as its probably the most well-rounded team I've ever drafted.

Any opinions and suggestions are welcome.

2B-Julio Lugo
3B-Aramis Ramirez
SS-Jimmy Rollins
OF-Carl Crawford
OF-Grady Sizemore
OF-Vernon Wells
UT-Adam LaRoche
BN-Mark Teahen
BN-Ian Kinsler

P-John Lackey
P-Scott Kazmir
P-Brett Myers
P-C.C. Sabathia
P-Takashi Saito
P-Jason Isringhausen
BN-John Patterson
BN-Brian Fuentes
BN-Derek Lowe

That's one hell of an offense you got there. Your starters are good,but I would try and add a safer option at closer. Other than that,its a mighty fine squad.

agreed and I would also like to add that if you could get a top of the line starter that would certainly help put you over the top.

thanks for the post on my topic ;-D

I agree with the above poster, great team but keep an out for potential closers as the season gets going. I like Saito, but I don't feel so good about Isringhausen and Fuentes.

No reason to push the panic button though, this is really a great team.

Wow, you've got some great batters. That is one of the best OFs I've seen. Also, a great bench with Teahen and Kinsler. I could see Kinsler taking over Lugo's spot by mid-season. I think your SPs will be fine. CC is a stud and you have Lackey / Kazmir / & Myers. Your SPs will be fine. Saito is a pretty good closer as well, I would be worried about Jason Izzy. Outside of that, your team is very good.

please return the favor

good team, but as others have said you could stand to have a top closer. offense is phenomenal and you have 4 very solid starters. i would say to look and see if kinsler gets off to a hot start, then try and trade him to a team with a struggling 2b to upgrade a closer or a SP. you might be weak on power and could try and trade for more of that, but you have a good team

help me out

Nice offense. I do think you need more power for a 10 team league. Homeruns and RBI's probably will not be enough. I would move some of the steals. Pitching looks very nice.

Izzy has been OK in Florida, so he might do the job for you. His hip surgery was a success, and he should be pain-free, as opposed to last year, when every pitch hurt.

Your offense may be a little short on power. But I'm thinking you might want to build up a lead in the SB category before trading too much speed away. Good luck, and thanks for responding to my post.
