First time player and boy do I need someone's advice...

Postby BaylorBaseball » Sat Mar 31, 2007 2:09 am

Here's my current team:

SP- Sheets, Ben
SP- Schmidt, Jason
SP- Hernandez, Felix
SP- Bush, Dave
SP- Sowers, Jeremy
SP- Johnson, John (System hasn't added him to the DL yet)

RP- Wagner, Billy
RP- Dotel, Octavio
RP- Capps, Matt

C- Mauer, Joe
1B- Delgado, Carlos
2B- Barfield, Josh
3B- Zimmerman, Ryan
SS- Rollins, Jimmy
MI- Bartlett, Jason
CI- Youkilis, Keven
OF- Bay, Jason
OF- Crisp, Coco
OF- Pena, Wily Mo
OF- Lofton, Kenny
Utility- Biggio, Craig
Bench Hitter- Victorino, Shane

Reserve Batter:
OF- Figgins, Chone (out til May, but listed as Day-to-Day, so he has to be a reserve I guess)

Reserve Pitcher:
RP- Broxton, Jonathan


I have the opporunity to pick up the following as free agents, but I have to drop someone (or I suppose Johnson would be on the DL...). Anyhoo, here's some of what's available:

Batters
Lo Duca, Paul
Lamb, Mike
Ethier, Andre
DeJesus, David
Johnson, Reed
DeRosa, Mark
Inge, Brandon
Thames, Marcus
Feliz, Pedro

Relief Pitching
Reyes, Dennys
Feliciano, Pedro
Meredith, Cla C.
Soriano, Rafael

Starting Pitching
Johnson, Randy (Could put him on the DL I think)
Prior, Mark (?)
Lee, Cliff (gets a lot of Ks)


FWIW, it's a 12 team 6x6 roto non-keeper league with holds and OPS as the two added categories.

I need advice here guys otherwise I'm going to get crushed in this league of mostly veterans.

Cliff Lee wouldnt be a bad pickup. I would also consider Andre Ethier to add some young legs to your team and add another young leg to your outfield. Also, Pedro Feliz starts hot, so that might not be a quick pick me up. Good Luck

I would add ethier for sure....he did so well at the end of last year, i definitely see that continuing into this season....Also, I think your relief pitching needs lots of help....I know closers are the most volatile positions, but try making a trade and adding another one

Drop Biggio, he's nothing any more. I'd look to see if Reed Johnson of Tor is still on the waivers (he should be, yahoo has him really low because he doesn't help with RBI's at all, but he'll help in AVG, R, and SB.

Other then that I really like your team.

I agree that RPs need help. And I agree that Reid Johnson adds to your strengths in AVG, steals, runs. I don't think you've got a lot of pop, unless Pena actually stays healthy and has the crushing kind of year that one day out of twenty he looks capable of. I don't see an easy fix on the power side, so I'd look to build the strengths you have. For that reason, you might drop Biggio and get Lo Duca for the utility spot--he can hit over 300 and score runs, especially if he stays in the two spot for the Mets.

I'd do the following:

-Drop Josh Johnson (out 2-3 months) and pick up Cliff Lee, and then DL him. Will be back much sooner,

-Ethier for Willy Mo swap. Ethier will start every day, and Pena won't, plus Ethier can flat out rake.

-R Soriano for Biggio, this will help in holds big-time,

-And finally pick up Randy! You'll have a roster spot open from DL'ing Lee.

UT Longhorn took the words out of my mouth.

I'd see if you could deal Delgado for a Prince Fielder. I see a big decline from Carlos.

Help a guy out?
