Will my pitching be enough? WHIR

Postby chris_dubyuh » Tue Feb 19, 2008 6:11 pm

I drafted last (10-team Roto) managing to snag MCab and Utley on the turn, making my day.

My lineup is a bit on the thin side concerning steals, but that's the least of my worries. In my draft pitchers were being drafted horrifyingly early and often, so it was slim pickings when it came my turn to select a few aces to lead the way. I think I made out pretty good, considering I got Hideki Matsui and Michael Young pretty late.

I'm looking to deal some of my depth to upgrade (trying to get Manny or Dunn for Young + Hamilton - Is that outrageous?), but other than that how do I look?

Very good lineup looks like you got some huge steals late. However, you will need that hitting depth in trades for pitching. I am sorry but for a 10 team league your SP is horrendous, I mean, really, Gil Meche? Trade some excess hitting for a top tier SP and you will be set.

Can I get some help on either one of mine? Please.

Yea, your staff is terrible. I do love the offence. I mean, Berk should bounceback, Utley is god, so is Cabrera. And you have a plethora of steals there. You also dont have a lot of saves, but I assume you will pick some up via free agency

I'd try to trade away Lance Berkman or DLee for a premiere pitcher. You have too many 1bs and enough depth on the bench that you can afford to trade away one of the two for a premiere pitcher. I'd bump someone from your bench into the UTIL hole(like either Young or Matsui).
