Disappointed in my first team. What do you think?

Postby Baseballer02 » Mon Feb 23, 2004 10:40 am

Every year I create 4 teams on Yahoo. I do 2 live drafts and 2 autopick drafts. 1 each for both roto and h2h. Anywho, I'm disappointed in my first autopick team that was drafter over last night. Tell me what you think. All 4 of my teams are in winner leagues this year.

C-Ivan Rodriguez
1b-Mark Teixiera
2b-Alfonso Soriano
3b-Scott Spiezio(ugh)
SS-Jose Reyes
OF-Shawn Green
OF-Rocco Baldelli
OF-Carl Crawford
Util-Mike Lieberthal
Bench-Austin Kearns
Bench-Milton Bradley

SP-Josh Beckett
SP-Matt Morris
RP-Billy Wagner
RP-John Smoltz
P-Troy Percival
P-Jason Isringhausen
P-Joe Borowski
Bench-Rob Nen
Bench-Brendan Donnely
Bench-John Lackey

Ugh, I'm just disgusted. Noone with over 100 runs, only 2 with 20 HR, noone with 100 RBI, and more SB than I can shake a stick at. FARRRR to many relievers. A setup man who imploded last year, and an 2 unproven starters. Hoping I can get a good 2 for 1 deal for a good hitter or closer. Should I pick Mauer for Catcher and try to trade I-Rod and Lieberthal?

Great closers....at least that's something. I'd trade a closer or two and one of your catchers. I believe in Joe Mauer, but I'm biased. If you do, take the chance. That could give you a major upgrade. Then trade some of those steals for some pop (@ 3B?). Otherwise, hope for better luck in your other 3 leagues.

Yeah. That's not a good team. Did you pre-rank? I pre-ranked both of my publics and wound up drafting 8th in both and got Prior/Vlad/Rolen 1-2-3 in both leagues. It's important to pre-rank!

Agrred that you should look to deal at least a couple of those closers and one of your catchers for some SP and at least one big OF masher. Need to fix that 3B situation too....

Wow, that is nasty.

OF and IF (except Soriano) need a lot of work.

Definitely a challenge.

maybe I'm blind but it doesn't look that terrible to me, deal Liberthal and maybe some others for a good power hitter to plug into util

Dealing away Pudge and Leibrethal and taking a chance on Mauer is risky (although, in my one league, I dropped Lo Duca, picked up Mauer, traded Chavez + Radke for Posada, and traded Posada for Rolen and Clement).

So, I'd go the safer route and trade away Leibrethal + Crawford/Baldelli and get some power in that lineup. Also, hope to god that Shawn Green has a comeback year. :D

Alright, my team has gone through a little makeover. I'm dropped Donnely for Jerome Williams and have a couple trades going through. They are Pudge and Borowski for Lowell and Smoltz for Magglio Ordonez. Whatcha think? My lineup should look like this now.

C-Lieberthal
1B-Teixiera
2B-Soriano
3B-Lowell
SS-Reyes
OF-Green
OF-Baldelli
OF-Crawford
Util-Ordonez
Bench-Spiezio
Bench-Kearns
Bench-Bradley

SP-Beckett
SP-Morris
RP-Wagner
RP-Nen
P-Isringhausen
P-Percival
P-Lackey
Bench-Williams

I know I need to trade some hitting for some pitching. Klesko and Hinske were just put on waivers, should I try to pick them up?
