12-Team Roto: Shot at Contention?

Postby Frappy » Thu Mar 20, 2008 6:03 pm

12-Team 5x5 Standard Roto League. It's a keeper league, 8 keepers per year - no maximum keeping length. We also get 2-4 prospects every two years. It seems to me that all I have to worry about right now are saves and maybe steals. It seems like Accardo will have the job for a little while early on while Im sure they won't let Ryan pitch back to back games early on so he'll get a few saves no matter what. Im hoping that'll hold me over long enough to find some saves from the FA. Also hoping that Marmol steals the job, otherwise throw up some good K/9 / ERA / WHIP. For steals, I shot for a lot of guys with the capability of swiping a handful of bases along with their normal season numbers. I'm not too worried about it and I have Cameron Maybin as a prospect for some possible speed if he plays well enough.

Here's my Roster:

C- I. Rodriguez
1B- R.Howard
2B- D.Pedroia
3B- A.Ramirez
SS- J.Rollins
OF- M.Holliday
OF- J.Francouer
OF- V.Wells
Util- E. Renteria
BN- C.Duncan
BN- K.Youkilis
BN- Melky Cabrera
BN- Felipe Lopez

SP- C.C. Sabathia
SP- D. Matsuzaka
SP- C. Young
SP- Y. Gallardo
RP- T. Hoffman
RP- J. Accardo
P- C. Marmol
BN- Ol. Perez
BN- I. Kennedy
BN- An. Miller
BN- C. Carpenter (Will go to DL. Picking up another arm.)

PR1 - D. Price
PR2 - C. Maybin
PR3 - To be drafted
PR4 - To be drafted

Yes, I like your team. Try to package Pedroia and one of your bench bats for a better 2B and your set.

Answer mine?

I could be wrong, but speed looks somewhat weak while saves are gonna be hard to come by. If Kerry Wood takes over closer role, then the team is really in trouble in terms of saves.

You should have a good shot at contention. I think you might want to try and improve your batting average some. Keep an eye on runs as well. I think I would try and deal Wells (hopefully to be replaced with maybin) although it might be hard to get fair value right now. I would definitely look to deal renteria and get a better bat at utility since his real value is at ss and someone in your league would probably pay for that. I think your bullpen strategy should be fine.

Looks really good, just looks like your lacking a bit in steals. Good job overall though. 8.5/10
