What to do with this team? WHIR

Postby seniorpaul » Sat Jul 28, 2007 10:25 am

Coming into the season, i thought this team was looking pretty stacked, but for most of the year, i've hoovered around 5-7th place. I've got a lot of players who have either been injuried or underperformed thus far. I guess i would like some unbiased opinions on this team, and where i should try to improve. Thanks...

10 team - 5x5 roto - 5 keepers, 2 util spots
------------------------------------------------------------------------
C - P.Lo Duca
1B - T.Hafner
2B - B.J.Upton
3B - M.Cabrera
SS - A.Hill
OF - A.Soriano, G.Sheffield, N.Markakis
UTIL - B.Phillips, M.Teixeira
BN - Del.Young, C.Pena

SP - J.Verlander, R.Halladay, D.Matsuzaka, J.Francis, A.Miller, D.Bush, B.Bonser, H.Bailey
RP - F.Cordero, M.Capps, E.Gagne, B.Myers
DL - B.Fuentes, P.Hughes

Wow dude, you must have some really sick teams in your league if you're hovering just around 5-7th place. I think your team looks pretty stacked to be honest. Is there any better options at C in only a 10 team league then Lo Duca out there? Maybe a better SS then Hill is available too. Even your staff looks very solid, although you could try something like Francis and Miller(unless you really want to keep him, not a big fan myself) for a stronger starter if you really wanted to. There's not much I have to say about this except that luck just isn't going your way so far. If you can get into the playoffs I think you should be able to make some noise, especially if Hafner heats up anytime soon. Good luck.

Agreed, you look quite solid to me. Weaknesses are SS (are guys like Tulo or Harris FAs? ... though Tulo is doubtful in a keeper I guess) and the back 5 of the SP rotation. Does Bailey project to be one of your keepers? I'd have a hard time keeping him over the likes of Miggy, Verlander, Upton, Young, Phillips, Teix, Hafner. If you don't think you'd keep him, trade him to a team that wants a SP keeper. Same with Miller.

What are your tough categories and which FAs are still on board?

My bad catagories are RBI's, ERA, and WHIP. I don't know how a team with Tex, Hafner, Shef, and Miggy can be in third to last in RBI's, but it is. I JUST traded for Verlander ( i gave up Pierre) so i'm hoping he'll help some in the pitching catagories.

Since we only have 5 keepers, guys like Bailey and Miller don't have a lot of value as keepers in a 10 team league, and since they've been mediocre at best, they're trade value is pretty low right now.

The top FA's at my weak positions are

C: Napoli, Estrade, B.Molina, Buck, Pierzynski - not a lot of help there
SS: Theriot, S.Drew, B.Harris, and K.Greene - none of whom are much if any of an upgrade over Hill.
