Another H2HWS team - UK North!

Postby RedBullVodka » Fri Mar 21, 2008 4:42 pm

Not in the H2HWS itself this year, but this is my team in the UK North division. Looking to get back to the WS next year...

14 teams / 6x6 (including holds / OPS) for those not familiar

C Bengie Molina (19.13)
1B Prince Fielder (1.13)
2B Placido Polanco (14.02
3B Garrett Atkins (3.13)
SS Edgar Renteria (9.13)
CF Josh Hamilton (12.02)
OF Nick Markakis (4.02)
OF Brad Hawpe (7.13)
Util David Ortiz (2.02)

Bench: Billy Butler (18.02)
Luis Castillo (20.02)

SP John Smoltz (5.13)
SP Roy Oswalt (6.02)
RP Joakim Soria (11.13)
RP Brian Wilson (15.13)
P Rich Hill (8.02)
P Matt Cain (10.02)
P Jonathan Broxton (13.13)

Bench: Clay Buchholz (16.02)
Randy Johnson (17.13)

I'm pretty happy - I'm strong in average, OPS, above average power, runs, RBI, so should compete in five of six batting categories each week. Could do with more speed, so may well lose that most weeks.

Pitching - I love my SPs, provided Smoltz isn't hurt. Probably reached on Oswalt a little, Harang & Kazmir went two picks before, which hurt. But a top four of Smoltz / Oswalt / Hill / Cain with RJ and Buchholz hopefully should be good enough to compete in wins, Ks, ERA and WHIP most week. Broxton will give me a fighting chance of holds, although I'm wondering about dropping Castillo for another holds guy. Weakness is saves - but Soria and Wilson are OK. May have to trade for saves if find I need to.

Any one else want to comment?

Nice draft. You have a nice blend of power and kudos on the Hamilton/Butler picks, as they're bargains compared to what I've seen in my 3 H2HWS drafts (I had taken Butler in the 14th round of the World Series, 15th I think in California). I also like your relative depth in pitching. I think you might have reached on Smoltz and Oswalt a bit, but just curious what hitters did you have on the board at the time? For what it's worth, I like your team's balance and you should contend. ;-D
