First time live draft...What's your opinion?

Postby autiger678 » Sun Mar 23, 2008 9:42 pm

New to the board, but I'd like to become a regular. I can't get enough analyzing fantasy baseball teams, but this time I'd like some input on my own team. This is an 18 team, Rotisserie scoring, 6x6 league. Stats are AVG, R, HR, RBI, SB, OPS, W, ERA, WHIP, K, SV, and HLD.
Spots are: 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, Util, 4 SP's, 3 RP's, 2 P's, 4 BN, 2 DL's.

Heres my team:

C - Jason Varitek
1B - Todd Helton
2B - Chone Figgins
3B - David Wright
SS - Troy Tulowitzki
OF - Jeremy Hermida
OF - Ken Griffey Jr.
OF - Travis Buck
Util - Jim Thome

BN - Wily Mo Pena
BN - Luke Scott
BN - Ryan Church

SP - Carlos Zambrano
SP - Felix Hernandez
SP - Jeremy Bonderman
SP - Gil Meche
RP - Eric Gagne
RP - Rafael Betancourt
RP - Brandon Morrow
P - Boof Bonser
P - Daniel Cabrera

BN - Juan Cruz
BN - Manny Delcarmen

I think OF would be a weakspot since you typically see big numbers out of the OF. I took some chances on some older guys that need to have another year of production (Varitek, Helton, Griffey and Thome). I think this upcoming year the sky is the limit for guys like Wright, Tulo, Zambrano and Hernandez. I don't think I punted any categories even though I certainly won't be placing too high in SB's. Tell me what you think and I look forward to making plenty of comments on other teams.

For an 18 team league, your team looks great! I'd keep my eye on an upgrade over Buck, but other than that, your team is solid ;-D

Agreed about the other poster saying for an 18 team league, you really did well...Def think you can boost OF during the year with some productive waiver wire pickups because you know griffey will get hurt and hermida and buck are just ehhh at this point...your pitching should be fine so focus on finding some solid OF upgrades over the first 3 weeks or so of the season (maybe even try to deal meche or bonderman and church in a package for a better OF and a lower pitching option???)...

Help if you can!

Looks solid to me, like another poster said there may be an OF upgrade possible but for now you look good.

Help if you have time?

Agreed. For an 18 team league, that's an impressive lineup. I'd check your waiver wire to see if Carlos Gomez is still available if you need some steals. He could easily replace Church on your bench, and he's going virtually undrafted in most of the leagues I know of. Of course, I don't know any leagues larger than 12 teams, so he could already be gone. But if he's available, think of him as another Juan Pierre type, only with slightly more power. I'm thinking he does .265, 5 HR, 40 RBI, 80 R, 45+ SB. He'll give you a boost in the SB department for sure.
