What are my weaknesses? WHIR!

Postby UGADawgGuy » Thu Apr 03, 2008 12:27 am

Before you look, note that I'm punting saves (unless I stumble into a few without trying). With that in mind, the other nine categories are significantly more important.

Here's my team:

12-manager, standard 5x5, head-to-head, non-keeper league -- this is a Yahoo! league. We have two DL spots available. Note: maximum transactions (Waiver/FA) = 35, and I've used 4 already!

Roster (as of 4/3/08):

C -- Joe Mauer
1B -- Derrek Lee
2B -- Howie Kendrick
3B -- Kevin Youkilis (1B/3B)
SS -- Jose Reyes
OF -- Vladimir Guerrero
OF -- Jeff Francoeur
OF -- Hunter Pence
UTIL -- Adam Dunn
BN -- OF Josh Willingham
BN -- C Ivan Rodriguez
BN -- SS Orlando Cabrera
BN -- 2B Kelly Johnson
BN -- 1B/3B Alex Gordon

SP -- Jake Peavy
SP -- Chien-Ming Wang
SP -- James Shields
SP -- Ian Snell
SP -- Mike Hampton
SP -- Brian Bannister
SP -- Jason Bergmann
SP -- Francisco Liriano (NA, minors)
RP -- Jonathan Broxton
DL -- Scot Shields (DL, 15-day)
DL -- Curt Schilling (DL, 60-day+)

Do I need to make any moves right now?

Your pitching staff looks pretty good considering you aren't going to go for saves. I'm not quite sure why you would need Shields though. Your league isn't counting HLDs and it's unlikely K-Rod will need a replacement.

Offense looks pretty good except for SBs. Jose Reyes will get a ton of SBs, but I'm not sure if it's enough to carry your team throughout the whole season.

The one thing that stood out to me as a possible weakness is your OF. Pence has a lot of potential power, but still unproven and could be a big upside or a big downside in my opinion.(most likely upside though). Besides that I would say maybe Mauer as catcher with Ivan rodriguez backing him up. Mauer is injury prone and even if healthy will have more days off then most catchers since gardy will want to play redmond. Pudge is a big question mark in my mind. Overall its hard to find a weakness and you have a really good team. Things I pointed out are not really weaknesses just possibilities for weakness.

Please rate my team..tell me where I could improve, Injuries have already been kicking my ass.

the only weakness i can see IMO, is Orlando Cabrera, he may be a little weak as your backup SS. I think you could maybe move him along with one of your pitchers in order to to upgrade your SS. Other than that, you have really solid team on your hands and you have good chance of contending.
