Do these pitchers = a Solid SP Staff?

Postby Steve Kemp » Wed Feb 25, 2004 2:06 pm

In a 10-team H2H

Beckett
Santana
Clemens
Wolf
Woody Williams
K Wells


I wasn't happy at first, but I'm starting to like it more and more. Do I need to go after another #1?

Another #1?

Sorry to disappoint but you don't have a #1. You have 2 pitchers that could have very good years, but neither is a sure #1.

In a 10 team league that is not a good staff.

btw - this should be posted in the Analyze/Rate my team forum.

this staff should be just fine. Though you might not have a top 10 pitcher, you are solid all the way down.

Yes, Clemens and Woody will hinder you more than help you this year.

i'm not a fan of that staff. you have a few guys that are injury prone, inexperienced, or getting old. woody williams did have the best year of his career but he's 38 and he may have tendonitis in his shoulder. that can't be good (very unlikely to repeat his performance). clemens isn't the youngest buck and is switching leagues. santana and beckett are both unproven and are questionmarks. kip wells is on the buco's, enough said. as for wolf, he's just an ok pitcher. nothing to write home about. i think you definately need to try and trade for a stud pitcher. that should help your staff out a ton.

I really like your SP's! Santana and Beckett will each roll up at least 200 k's this season. I consider both of them number 1's. Santana and Beckett also play for solid offensive teams. I definately think Clemens will help you with wins and k's but his era will be in the high 3's. Woody is the man since he has been a Cardinal, short of injury, he can win 15-17 games this season. Wolf is solid and Wells has potential. You will be fine especially if you can balance your staff with a solid offense.

It's good enough as long as you have a really good offense and good closers. Santana is a decent number 1 starter. I don't really like Woody or Roger. I might even try and trade one of them for Jeff Weaver. It's good enough if you are willing to stay on top of your team and use the waiver wire.

Wow...all over the place on this one. Some like it, others don't at all. This is how I feel/..some days I like it, some I don't.

I think people's rating of Beckett and Santana really differ. Some see them as tru #1's, while others see them as a risk.

That is a very good staff, however you must 1-play in a small league 2- a cluless league 3- You bats are weak..................

My guess is a 10 team league with WEAK bats
