Postby usclerkguy » Sun Mar 02, 2008 2:57 pm

Okay, I wasn't available for the draft so my rankings were used. That will explain my team...lol. There are obviously places that need fine tuning, but overall, I'm thinking if i'm patient things will work out. I don't wanna panick and make too many trades before season even starts. Well here's the roster(strong on pitching).Kouzmanoff just went on waivers so I'll try and get him. All input is welcome!!! Thanks!

C- G.Soto
1B- M.Teixeira
2B- K. Johnson
3B- E.Longoria
SS- J.Reyes
OF- C. Beltran
OF- J. Ellsbury
OF- J.Hamilton
UT- Derek Lee
BN- M.Cuddyer(OF)
BN- Aaron Hill(2B)

SP- C.Hamels
SP- J.Verlander
RP- F.Cordero
RP- H.Street
P- S.Kazmir
P- T.Lincecum
P- B.Lyon(RP)
BN- Y.Gallardo, R.Harden, M.Garza

Agree your pitching looks really strong. I would consider trying to trade one of them to upgrade your 3B because i'm not sold on Longoria this year or Kouz. I would look to add another RP Street can't be counted on and Lyon hopefully does well but not a guarantee. Another quality OF wouldn't hurt either incase Ellsbury and Hamliton bomb. Cuddyer should be a starter over either.

help on mine?

I agree. Pitching is very good. Keep an eye on RP during the season.

If Longoria doesn't turn out this year, you gotta upgrade via trade, or maybe WW if you don't want to sacrifice any other area. I'm sure you can use pitchers as bait.

Outfield is the other weak area. And I agree, Cuddyer could turn out to be solid this year, so he should be a starter as of now.

I basically agree with what Philly_05 said. Your pitching is really good but you might want to find one more closer (but you can always scour the waiver wire). Also 3B is a cause for concern. I would go ahead and pick up Kouz - I think he will do fairly well this year, but now I notice that you have no one to drop for him. I would trade Garza, he isn't major league ready and he will be going up against some great offenses. Overall I really like your team, just a little tweaks I would make. Good luck!

Thanks for input guys! I put in for Kouz, dropping Garza. I also see that someone just dropped T.Glaus.If I don't get Kouz , I'll go for him. I'm thinking of packaging Lincecum and an OF for an OF upgrade.Not sure which OF...I like the upside of both hamilton(HR) and ellsbury(SB,R) . Gonna mull it over and see which OF I should reasonably target for a trade. Thanks again.
