Need help building depth

Postby mork » Sun Mar 23, 2008 1:42 am

My roster in a 5x5 12 team mixed (OPS instead of AVG). (keepers are Wright, Holliday, and Braun)

C: Posada
1B: Hafner
2B: Kelly Johnson
3B: Wright
SS: Jeter
MI: Asdrubal Cabrera
CI: Braun
OF: Holliday
OF: CB Young
OF: Swisher
OF: Burrell
UT: JD Drew
BN: Ankiel

SP: Smotlz
SP: Maine
SP: Pedro
RP: Rivera
RP: Percival
P: Accardo
P: CJ Wilson
P: Joba Chamerlain
BN: Marmol
BN: Randy Johnson
BN: Garza

I love my offense, but am worried that I need to roster more backups in case of an injury. I'm thinking of picking up Nate McLouth off of waivers. Is this the right decision? who do I drop (Garza)?

I know my pitching staff is not deep either, and it's frail, but Smotlz, Pedro, and RJ were great value. Should I let it ride with this staff for a month and see what I have, or do I try to make a trade now (like Mariano for James Shields) and get younger?

leave a link and WHIR!! stanks!

I would stand pat for right now. If you do see an opportunity to upgrade the rotation you should pursue it, but it's no a pressing priority IMO.

Overall you have a nice balanced team. Nice blend of power/speed, starters who have risk but could present high reward, and closers who will rack up some saves. Nice work.

Yu have a nice lineup, about the only players I'd switch out are probably Ankiel and Garza if you were going to get yourself some better bench support.

Overall your solid.
