Yahoo strategy question - What to do with this team?!

Postby Doc19 » Thu Feb 19, 2004 11:14 am

Hey fellas;

My autopick team came out pretty strong, just too many good bats to know what to do with... was wondering what your thoughts were on # of bench hitters vs bench pitchers to avoid going over max innings, etc., and who you would try to deal to get another starter or two. Thanx! 5x5 roto scoring...

C - C. Johnson, 1B - Nevin, 2B Vidro, 3B - Rolen, SS - A-Rod, OF - M. Ordonez OF - C. Crawford , OF - A. Kearns, UTIL - Lowell, Bench - M. Cabrera, M. Bradley, C. Patterson, M. Teixiera

SP - Schilling, SP - Oswalt, RP - Percival, RP - Isringhausen, P - Julio, P - Webb, P - Peavy, P - Kolb

Your team is going to win the league as it is buddy, but if you want to grab Prior, package Rolen and one of your bench OF. You have two quality bench OF and a very solid backup at 3b. You might want to start off offering Lowell instead of Rolen in the trade if the guy is needy at 3b. Also you might want to consider getting a top 5 closer with your hitting depth.

Another SP wouldn't hurt. The team is really strong the only bad player you have is CJ. Check the WW and pickup a better catcher.

See if you can trade some offense for a better catcher.

You could easily trade Lowell and fill the spot with Teixiera or Cabrera without much of a drop-off (if at all). Teixiera and Cabrera should have lots of trade value too.
