Final Team - Loaded? --- WHIR

Postby Invictus » Fri Mar 21, 2008 5:47 pm

Just finished my fourth and final draft - Roto 5x5 12 teams - I feel like I came out of it pretty well, but had a few picks snatched out from under my nose (Kerry Wood and Josh Hamilton both 2 picks ahead of me). Howd I do? I have the roster, and pick number following. I had the tenth pick in my draft

C A.J. Pierzynski (178)
1B Nick Swisher (111)
2B Jeff Kent (183)
3B Miguel Cabrera (10)
SS Michael Young (82)
OF Carl Crawford (15)
OF Álex Ríos (34)
OF Brad Hawpe (106)
Util Johnny Damon (135)
BN Raúl Ibañez (202)
BN Mark DeRosa (231)
BN J.R. Towles (250)

SP Brandon Webb (39)
SP Justin Verlander (58)
RP Joe Nathan (63)
RP Todd Jones (154)
P Manny Corpas (130)
P Scott Kazmir (87)
P Jered Weaver (159)
BN C.J. Wilson (207)
BN Bronson Arroyo (226)

Any and all praise/constructive criticism is welcome!

Your team looks very strong.

As the season goes, I'd look for an up and comer to replace Damon at util, but he is definitely servicable.

I think you will need to find some more speed. Crawford should give you his usual 50. After that you need to hope for 25 from Damon. So I feel this is a weak spot. You can probably upgrade 2B on offense. Think Kent's days have passed him by.

Pitching looks good. Hopefully Kazmir is not out too long. But Arroyo will fill in nicely until he returns. Closers are good. I would say this is a contending team. I would look to upgrade the offense in speed or possibly a power hitter. Thanks for helping mine.

i think this team is just a little better than avg.

your offense should be fine but I think the pitching after verlander and webb is a big ?? Could be very good if injury free. Todd Jones is not going to make it half the year as closer due to injury or just getting lit up.

I think you need more power but then again I lean towards power.

well rounded and balanced team. this one will surely compete. I agree that you might be a little light one power, but it's negligible as I think you will still compete in this category.

I agree, I would try to get some more power somehow with a trade with Damon and someone else disposeable
