1st baseman help! Please!! WHIR (as best I can!)

Postby ezgoin92 » Wed Apr 04, 2007 12:49 pm

I play in the standard Yahoo H2H league.
12 Teams - 10 categories:
R HR RBI SB AVG W SV K ERA WHIP

Here's my roster:
C Mike Piazza (Oak - C)
1B Conor Jackson (Ari - 1B)
2B Chase Utley (Phi - 2B)
3B Scott Rolen (StL - 3B)
SS Miguel Tejada (Bal - SS)
OF Carlos Beltran (NYM - OF)
OF Rocco Baldelli (TB - OF)
OF J.D. Drew (Bos - OF)
Util Jimmy Rollins (Phi - SS)
BN Jeff Kent (LAD - 1B,2B)
BN Eric Chavez (Oak - 3B)
BN Barry Bonds (SF - OF)
BN Mike Jacobs (Fla - 1B)

SP Ben Sheets (Mil - SP)
SP Matt Cain (SF - SP)
RP B.J. Ryan (Tor - RP)
RP Jose Valverde (Ari - RP)
P Jose Contreras (CWS - SP)
P Mike Gonzalez (Atl - RP)
P Ted Lilly (ChC - SP)
BN Scott Olsen (Fla - SP)
DL Randy Johnson (Ari - SP)

I have Jeff Kent, Conor Jackson and Mike Jacobs on my roster. Jacobs is batting 4th in the Marlins order, seems to me like he's got a lot of upside. I don't know a lot about fantasy baseball, but he seems like a decent 1B. His ranking isn't that great, so am I wrong here? Should I cut any of those three (and beef up my pitching staff? Or do you think that any of them hold any trade value?

Second question, do I have too many batters on my team? If so, who to cut? Or do I just sit tight?

2td question. yes for H2H I think you have to many hitters on your bench.

Jacobs is expendable. You have Kent who should be better as a 1B sub. So if there is a FA SP out there you can drop Jacobs to pick him up.

OTOH. Kent might have trade value. If a team is in need of a 2B you should be able to turn Kent into a decent SP. I like the versatility of Kent but you don't need his 2B as you will not sit Utley.

So I would first offer Kent to teams weak at 2B and if that does not work I would drop Jacobs for a FA SP.

What are your plans with Bonds. Don't let him rot on your bench. Either play him early while healthy or trade him while he is hot.

I don't know, Jacobs is in a good young lineup and has homered today. I might consider hanging onto him as my starting 1B. Actually, your best bet is to trade either Tejada or Rollins for a top 1B. That would also make Jacobs expendable and free up some roster space.

I would see if I could get Derrek Lee for Tejada or Justin Morneau for Rollins, something like that.

1. Play Bonds in the UTL. Put Jimmy on the bench.

2. Move one of your SS's for a better 1B. You need a dude who can rake in that slot. I never liked Brandon Jacobs with the Mets, and Connor Jackson is too much of an unknown to bet on.

3. With all those talented bench guys left over after trades, you can get a very good pitcher.

Then your roster will be set.

Help?

I would combine Rollins and Kent for one guy.....best hitter available.

Then, I take a pitcher.

I play Bonds now, too.
