my first draft (and not sure i like it)....

Postby zoos » Sat Apr 07, 2007 11:48 am

hello. i was wondering if anyone had any feelings or suggestions for this roster (13 team roto league). it was my first draft and i am not sure i like what i am seeing.

3B-aramiz ramirez

SP-johan santana
SP-freddy garcia

i have too many outfielders but i need speed so i am trying to see who of my stinky speedsters emerges as a decent option (pods/duffy/crisp-victorino is also available and i have been cosindering him-i have also been considering trying to buy low on a legit speedster like furcal). i actually traded cuddyer for crisp a bit ago (my first trade) because i thought i had enough power. i should have sufficient SP right now, right? but how can i improve this team? i am hanging in the middle od the pack right now, but i feel i can be doing better. i keep getting tempted to pick up another SP but i am not sure who to drop. should i give duffy a few more days? i really don't like podsednik but i don't think he has proven to be bad enough to drop yet.

thank you for any input. i appreciate it.

you need more options

I like your pitching
but your main line up will leave you upset on days that certian players are off. My opinion isa this..... You want to have players on your bench that can play multiple positions so when you have players off, you can still receive productions from players

Here is the problem i see..
u have Huff that plays 3b and OF, but you have alot of outfielders already

Mark Derosa plays 3 positions, Ty Winnington, Rich Aurillia, etc
even players like Nick Swisher will give you options as far as OF and Infield. Thats just my opinion. Thanks

thank you for the input.
i hear today with barrett out, i got no one to fill in.
i am going to assume huff will soon get 1B designation and maybe i can even then deal delgado? for some speed.
it seems many in my leagure are streaming relief pitchers so i could stream mediocre cathchers, for instance...i just need to figure out which OFs are droppable.
my infield is kinda versatile-hall (will soon get OF designation?), huff and kendricks can all play differeint positions.
too many OFs is the problem...

ok now after some deals, i have-

SP-santana, bedard, zito, maddux, freddy garcia, arroyo
RP-street, dotel, salomon torres, greinke, soriano

i still need some speed and some relief help.
i hate most of my offensive players outside of kendrick and ramirez. they can all go.
but does anyone see any moves here i should be making?
not much left on the FA wire as far as relievers (howry/lindstrom/rauch are about it right now...)
do i have too much starting pitching? who should i look to deal offesnsively? i would most like to deal delgado and dye and barrett i guess, but anyone can go.
thank you.
