First Year Keeper Team...Bunch of Studs or Duds? WHIR!

Postby UT Longhorn » Sat Mar 31, 2007 8:55 am

Like to hear ur thoughts! ;-) Just drafted in an ultra-competitive first year keeper. 28 rounds, mixed, standard 5x5, roto league.

Almost all teams stocked up on offense early, but I stayed true to my pre-rankings, so I think I got pretty good value w/ my pitchers. I like my team, but IMO could use a legit #2 outfielder, and maybe a little more speed.

What do you guys think? I'll respond...just leave you the link to ur team. Thanks! :-)

C: Posada
C: Paulino
1B: Ortiz
2B: Kent
3B: Blalock
SS: M Young
CI: Overbay
MI: Felipe Lopez
OF: Bay
OF: Kearns
OF: Alou
OF: Griffey
OF: Lofton
Util: O Cabrera
Bench: Ethier
Bench: J Guillen
Bench: Lowell

RP: K-Rod
RP: Jenks
RP: Gagne (DL)
SP: Webb
SP: Smoltz
SP: Dice-K
SP: Dontrelle
SP: Colon (DL)
SP: Contreras
Bench: Glavine
Bench: Billingsley

BTW, I'll be able to pick up 2 more players once I DL Gagne & Colon. Any positions I should be targeting?

Your OF and 3B situation is pretty bad for 12 teamer. The OF especially, is filled with old, injury prone geezers. Your offense is only decent for a 12 teamer. Pitching is fairly solid though. You're going to need to swing some trades to upgrade that OF though, its pretty bad.

Your team looks solid overall, but I think the OF is the weakest link on your team. I expect Ethier to have a good year so I would try to fit him into that lineup. Try upgrading with a package of Alou or Griffey + Willis or Contreras and see what you can get in return (like a Rios/Markakis/Cuddyer... who knows). That way you still retain 3 "big" starters along with Glavine and either Willis or Contreras.

Thanks for the help. Good luck.

Good team, your OF isnt the greatest. its like bay, then a huge drop to your next OF. if i were you since your INF is amazing i'd try and package maybe a Overbay and a Kearns for a more sure thing OF, i agree try to target a markakis or a cuddyer. I like your balance and i really think your team is solid besides the OF issue. You have a sure thing C in Posada and an up and coming C in Paulino. I like OCab, but i would again try to package him with a OF to upgrade at OF. For a deep 12 teamer i think your IF is pretty stacked. now to your pitching

I love K-rod as your RP anchor, but i really dont like gagne. He's already on the DL and has a great backup in Otsuka who could easily take his job. I'd pay attention to the WW for closers from teams like TB, Cincy and other teams who dont have a sure thing at closer. I like your SP, you have a great top three in Webb, Smoltz, DIce-k and then Dontrelle, i think will have a bounceback year. I think you may have reached on Dice-K a bit and probably couldve gotten a more sure thing SP.

overall, i say its a pretty balanced and good team for a deep 12 teamer. how many keepers is it? im guessing about 5, if thats so who do you plan on keeping?

help me out

If the season ended today my keepers (we only get 5) would be:

-Papi
-Bay
-M Young
-K-Rod
-Webb

W/ Dice-K as a big time wild card. I think he could be dominant right away.

I think that you could pick up someone better than Blalock at 3b.
