My Keeper League team (WHIR)

Postby Hogger1 » Thu Mar 13, 2008 7:54 am

5 keepers. I kept Reyes, M. Cabrerra, Beltran, Verlander and Mauer

12 team 7X5 league (we count doubles and triples along with the standards)

C: Mauer
1b: Loney
2b: Kendrick
3b: Cabrerra
ss: Reyes
lf: Manny Ramirez
cf: Beltran
rf: Kemp
of: J.D. Drew
Util: Ankiel
bench: Kubel, Iwamura, Kotchman

SP: Verlander, Smoltz, Oswalt, Pedro
RP: F.Cordero, Gagne
bench: C.Bucholtz, R.Johnson, Broxton, Neshek

I'll almost certainly drop Neshek for some depth. Probably at SS or C, but the pickings are slim right now until someone emerges. I can someone like Teahan, Towles, Y. Betancourt, A. Cabrera or others, but nobody really stands out just yet.

I know my closers are questionable, but there'll be a few emerge soon enough...I hope.

I think you're on the right track. Neshek & Broxton can both be dropped for some depth elsewhere. Your team is pretty nice, especially with having to fill the OF positions, not just "OF". I agree your closers might be a little shaky, but closers always fall off and new ones emerge. Just scout the WW to see what you can find. I think you have a pretty good mix of power and speed as well. Pedro is a big "?" as well...i'd have him on a short leash too.

overall, pretty good

thanks for helping with mine too.

Great hitting. Love Kemp this year. Pitching is pretty good. Pedro could either be real good, or be injured early. Verlander will contend for the Cy. Smoltz and Oswalt will still be solid, even though they are getting old. Keep an eye on the WW always for RP's. I happen to like using Broxton, Neshek just to have some extra K's and potentially lower era/whip on the days your starters don't pitch.

I think you are pretty solid. I am not sold on Pedro I personally think he will get hurt before the season is over. You might hope that he starts out got and package him with someone else and get you another good closer to go along with Cordero. I just don't think Gagne will last long but who knows. Good Luck
