Newbie at Fantasy baseball. How did I do?!

Postby Dodgerblue8188 » Sat Mar 22, 2008 11:39 pm

Scoring is as follows: Head to head per week 10 team league
Runs, HR's, RBI's, SB, Avg, Wins, Saves, K's, ERA, Whip


Pitchers
E. Bedard
S. Kazmir (yes I know he won't start opening day but should be good)
B. Penny
B. Sheets
A. J. Burnett

J. Broxton
H. Street

K. Johima
C. Pena
J. Loney
D. Uggla
J. Rollins
R. Braun
V. Guerrero
I. Suzuki
M. Ordonez
M. Kemp
Melky Cabrera
Chris Young (ARI)
J. Hermida


I think I'm weak at catcher and not much depth in the infield besides 1b. But I think I'll do well in the home run and RBI's. And if Kazmir and Bedard both can get healthy and perform like last year I think I can do well in K's too. I'm pretty weak at saves too.

What do you think?

Yeah, you are definitely weak in saves. You didn't say how many teams it was, but I'm assuming a 12 team league.

I like the pitching - you should do real well in Ks, ERA, and WHIP most every week.

Don't worry about needing depth at IF - Rollins and Uggla are both proven, so you should be fine.

You have too much depth in OF. I don't know how many spots you have, but I would imagine you won't have enough to be able to play all six of your good OF.

Looks pretty good. I'm guessing there are not many teams in the league. Pitching should do well. Just keep an eye out on your closer situation. You could get lucky and pick up a quality guy in free agency.

It's a 10 team league. I stated that at the top but probably got overlooked because I put it right after some other info.

I think it looks pretty strong, with two exceptions:

Saves. Broxton won't be picking many up with Saito in front of him. He'll surely help in ERA and should be a good pickup for you, but you still need another closer. Is there anyone who has already won the position still available? Otherwise, keep a close eye on teams with competition for that spot, the Cubs come to mind (but remember that Wood's arm could literally fall off at any moment).

Injury potential. Kazmir, Sheets, and Burnett are all high risk pitchers, in my opinion. That being said, I think Kazmir should be fine if he eases himself back into work. And Sheets is playing for a contract, so maybe he'll stop doing whatever it is he's doing that keeps landing him on the DL. I've never been high on Burnett. I'm not saying that it doesn't look really good right now, just that in 2 months it could look really bad. If there is anyone solid still available (and not injury prone) you might consider picking them up.

Besides that, I think it looks pretty good!

Help if you can:
