Just Drafted, wondering your thoughts on my team, what needs to be done, etc.
C: Bengie Molina 1B: Mark Teixeira, Adrian Gonzalez 2B: Ian Kinsler SS: Troy Tulowitzki, Khalil Greene 3B: Ryan Braun, Edwin Encarnacion OF: Matt Holliday, Corey Hart, Nick Swisher, Matt Kemp UTIL: Jim Thome
SP: Brandon Webb, Aaron Harang, Daisuke Matsuzaka, A.J Burnett, Ian Snell, Adam Wainwright RP: J.J Putz, B.J Ryan
At first glance I thought you might have an issue with BA, but Holliday in the .330 range will make up for Swisher in the .270 range. So nevermind on that issue. I think I might drop a starter. In a Roto league if you have 2 guys with 40+ saves you will get points. But in an H2H league say there are 5 games per player per week, the guy with 3 closers has an advantage over the guy with 2 closers, even if his closers aren't quite as good. I've reworded this three times and I'm not quite sure that it is conveying my point, so if your confused let me know. And I can try again.
I'm not a big Sheffield fan in the first place. But I can find three pretty good reasons for you to not pick up Sheffield. 1. Depending on your league rules he may only be elligible at DH. 2. If he is elligible at firstbase you've already got Teixera and Gonzalez. 3. If he is not elligible at firstbase you've already got Thome (who may only be elligible at DH)
That waiver spot would be better used on a closer than him, it just depends on who is out there. An interesting scenario for you would be for Ryan to go on the DL because you get to pick up a free player until he is off the DL. But we can't assume that happens. I think that you should shop around Harang because IMO he is the highest risk/reward pitcher. Webb and Matzusaka are pretty solid. Snell and Wainwright are going to be above average, whereas Harang might be really good or he might just be good, he is easier to trade. If there is somebody willing to take Burnett from you might do that also. But first scavenge the wire!
