Any work needed on my keeper team? WHIR..WHIR

Postby AshesOfEmpires » Thu Feb 21, 2008 5:14 pm

Just finished up my draft for my H2H 3 keeper league and was wondering what areas I might need to work on. My keepers were Johan Santana, David Wright and Carl Crawford.
I avoided joining in a closer run in the middles rounds and I settled on Gagne, Corpas and a returning(hopefully)BJ Ryan. I could have had Bedard with my first pick,the eighth overall, but I chose to go with Troy Tulowitzki since I believe pitching is frigging deep this year. Bobby Abreu fell to me in the 6th round and even though I took Markakis in the second, I couldn't pass him up. I might have reached on Francisco Liriano in the 10th round and Johnathon Broxton in the 12th but I really wanted them this year. I believe my pitching staff has the potential to among the best in the league as long as Liriano can return to form and Pedro can stay healthy.

C-Bengie Molina
1st-Adrian Gonzalez, Paul Konerko
2nd-Dan Uggla
3rd-David Wright
SS-Troy Tulowitzki, Orlando Cabrera
LF-Carl Crawford
CF-Delmon Young
RF-Bobby Abreu, Nick Markakis

SP-Johan Santana, Aaron Harang Adam Wainwright, Francisco Liriano, Pedro Martinez, Brett Myers
RP-Manny Corpas, Jonathon Broxton, BJ Rryan, Brian Wilson, Eric Gagne

ive never played in a keeper league and imnot a fan of head to head either. as far as i can tell your team looks real solid.

i like the balance of speed and power.

youll be looking to ride the closer carousell this year by drafting ryan and wilson and there is a possibility gane falters. closers can always be found later.

your rotation looks solid, especially if liriano comes back anywhere near where he was when he left. that guy rivaled santana in minnesota that year.

broxton is a nice guy to have in your bully too, he may even get you some saves later on.

id look to move uggla for weeks before the season begins if at all possible.

Pretty solid team, overall. Not joining in the closer run MAY hurt you, but your guys are all high reward. Plus, like was said, there are always new closers surfacing, and guys surprising. I'd just keep an eye out, and try to keep a low waiver priority, if possible. Nice job. Having those three as keepers to start never hurts.

Thanks for the help on mine.

I really like the upside for your pitching staff with pedro, liriano, myers and wainwright anchored by harang and santana. your offense looks pretty good too you although there are some question marks about whether tulo will do as well, who knows what ugglas going to do, and abreu is getting up there in age.

You definitely took some risks with your pitching staff, but having a couple of guys like Santana and harang to hold things down will help. If you have problems, I'd anticipate them here.
I like your offence, especially with you having two productive first basemen.

Very good team. Never worry about closers at the start of the year, be ready though for when someone loses a job or gets hurt.

This team looks great maybe get rid of Konerko though and see what you can get for him. Nice team though.

If you're taking a flyer on BJ Ryan i'd personally pick up Jeremy Accardo if he's available...
It might be worth it for insurance purposes if he has a setback this spring

Tulo is a nice 4th rounder - that's where he seems to be going in many leagues. You have a LOT of risks here: Liriano, Pedro, Ryan, Gagne all had injuries. Also, past Crawford, you may need some work in SB's.

7/10
