FRESHLY DRAFTED! 10-Team KEEPER~! WHIR! HELP A GUY OUT!

Postby leafsman » Fri Mar 30, 2007 11:21 pm

Stats are R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, SLG, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, K/9

We Start Conventional Line-up with 1 extra OF, 1 Extra IF, 1 UTIL Spot, 3 SP 2 RP 3 P, 5 man Bench

This is a 2nd Year Keeper, the top four were carried over from last year. I won so I picked tenth overall.

Thoughts?

Shdaow
1. (10) David Ortiz
2. (11) Lance Berkman
3. (30) Manny Ramírez
4. (31) Jason Bay
5. (50) Troy Glaus
6. (51) Jermaine Dye
7. (70) Aaron Harang
8. (71) Dontrelle Willis
9. (90) Erik Bedard
10. (91) Bobby Jenks
11. (110) Felipe López
12. (111) Jason Schmidt
13. (130) Brandon Phillips
14. (131) Joe Borowski
15. (150) Ramón Hernández
16. (151) Joel Zumaya
17. (170) Brad Penny
18. (171) Adam LaRoche
19. (190) Joe Crede
20. (191) Ted Lilly
21. (210) Aubrey Huff
22. (211) Mark Buehrle
23. (230) Sammy Sosa
24. (231) Pedro Martínez

Pitching may be a little weak, and I'm desperate for speed. My MI is my Weakness, OF my strength. I'm trying to deal Dye for Speed.

That's funny. I tried to deal Dye for speed and settled on picking up Dave Roberts post draft. I do agree pitching is a little weak and you are desperate for speed. Zumaya is a setup guy unless Jones screws up or gets hurt. I never played in a keeper but if you could trade one of those top four for a MI with speed along with a RP you would be golden.

I personally think you have enough to speed to at least contend but not win the cat. I'd sit pat though 10 teamers aren't challenging for me.

agreed. Try and get a RP. it would improve your team a ton! i agree, try to deal dye for speed, he wont repeat next years numbers but some guy may overvalue him and you can get a greatdeal

nice team ;-D

thanks for the help

I think you'll need more than 2 closers (Jenks, JoBlo) to be competitive in saves in a 10-team league.

Your offense is off to a great start with your 4 keepers (can't imagine how you got all 4 of those guys, nice!)

Good luck, and thanks for responding to my post.

I like your team a lot, but it is only a 10 team league. Your keepers should make you stay in the lead in the power categories. I would probably trade one of your big 4 for speed only if no one is biting on Dye.

Thanks for your help on mine.

Great job drafting all hitters with the first 6 picks...that's a real nice offense. I think Harang/Bedard/Willis as your top SP's should is great esp considering the offense you have. I would definitely grab another RP. You might be underrating your speed a bit as Lopez,Bay, and Phillips will all contribute to keep you at least in the middle of the pack.

If you want to deal Dye, try him in a package for a speedster and RP.

Agreed.

But, I like your team as it is. With Dye around you have 4 (maybe 5) guys easily capable of 40+ homers a piece...that's 160 (or 200) HRs right there! More than I have on one of my teams combined! You should definitely be sitting atop the HR category, but not dead last in steals.

I'd ride that offensive powerhouse to victory.

Thanks and good luck.

I agree you're going to want another closer in a 10 teamer. Plus not sure if Borowski will keep his job either. Also, some more SBs would help you finish closer to the top in that cat.

Like the Sosa pick a lot, but wouldn't want Lilly anywhere near my team in a 10 teamer. Nice team.
