Mixed Feelings About This team... Plz Rate WHIR

Postby yankeekd25 » Tue Mar 18, 2008 6:23 pm

10 Team Yahoo H2H 5x5 Standard Cats

C- Soto
1B- Howard
2B- Kent
SS- Tejada
3B- Cabrera
OF- Granderson
OF- Abreu
OF- Hart
Util- Victorino
BN- Kemp, Hamilton, Y. Escobar

SP-Sabathia
SP- Verlander
RP- Wagner
RP- Soriano
P- Oswalt
P- Maine
P- Wang
BN- Betancourt/ Broxton- plan on using them when my SP's don't pitch.

Overall, I'm not sure if I like this team or not. I was drafting with newbies so some picks were very unexpected. I love how I landed Cabrera AND Howard. That'll help A LOT! Half the draft was on auto. I know I need a 2b man. I could probably use an OF/ SS also. Don't know how Tejada is going to do but got him late. Please help and suggest what you guys think I should do?

Util- Matsui
BN- C Lee
DL- Beltran

SP- King Felix, Wainwright, Verlander, Santana, Hanson, Scherzer
RP- Fuentes, Cordero, Jenks

Your pitching staff is top notch and even though Tejada is slowly downgrading, he still produces, slightly more than Kent. I would try to use either Maine or Oswalt, with I don't know, Abreu or Hart to land a 2B. Or you can use an RP, with one always popping up frequently in WW.

I give this team an A, it is really good. I know how it feels to feel like you robbed a couple of newbies (I landed Chris Paul and Deron Williams in my NBA Fantasy League 8-o ), but hey, test the grounds, get a feel for some players, learn how fantasy players react to certain situations and adapt to it.
Just know that you'll reach the playoffs with this team.

No, what I meant by the newbie thing was this... I have done a lot of mocks so I know where guys are being drafted this year. All of the good 2b man were gone within the first 6 rounds. Unbelievable. Do you think I need to upgrade my OF at all? I do absolutely LOVE my rotation. With the help of Broxton, Betancourt, I will dominate the pitching cats, something I did not do last year, which ultimately cost me the league. For once I am just worried about my hitting.

I really don't think you need to do much with this team just yet. I don't think you have to worry about the outfield. They're all pretty good, and they all have speed, which you need to make up for having Kent and Tejada as your MI's. Escobar is a great sleeper and qualifies at both MI positions, so I don't think you have to rush to replace Kent or Tejada. Plus in a 10 team league there will be plenty of waiver wire options at 2b. (Sanchez, Ellis, Lopez...guys like that maybe?). If I was looking to do anything with that team, I would look to move Wang (I hate pitchers who don't get K's) and maybe pick-up someone else who can catch. I don't really trust Soto myself, but it's worth waiting to see how he starts the season.

Maybe I am biased at Abreu =/

You don't HAVE to rush for a trade, the team will go far by itself. Like Hogger1 said, pay attention to the WW for some 2Bs like Sanchez (off 2007, but everyone seemed to forget the dude one the batting title on 06)

I like your team. Pitching is your strength. Followed closely by Power. However, where is your SPEED?!?!?!

My move would be to ditch Oswalt for a 2B, Kent will be a nice bench guy... But be sure to get SBs...

I know Granderson and Victorino will grab pleanty.. Hart will be around 25.. Abreu is gettin old.. Tejada is good for about 10... but for a 10 team league you should be at atleast 150 steals by end of season.. atleast...

Otherwise great job...
