Is my team better or worse?

Postby wildcatmatt27 » Sun Jun 15, 2008 7:45 pm

I have made some major overhauls to my squad over the past day which included two mega trades and a couple of waiver wire additions. I want to know what you guys think. Personally I feel I am much better, BUT I did deal Chase Utley. See for yourself.

Before the trades:

C Victor Martinez
1B Conor Jackson
2B Chase Utley
3B Aramis Ramirez
SS Derek Jeter
OF Josh Hamilton
OF Jacoby Ellsbury
OF Jay Bruce
Util Mike Lowell
BN David Murphy
BN Carlos Gomez
BN Joey Votto
BN Torii Hunter
DL Jeff Keppinger

SP Dan Haren
SP Tim Lincecum
SP Justin Duchscherer
RP Mariano Rivera
RP George Sherrill
RP BJ Ryan
BN Todd Wellemeyer
BN Wandy Rodriguez
BN John Maine

AFTER TRADES...

C Russell Martin (trade)
1B Mark Tiexeira (trade)
2B Mark DeRosa (trade)
3B Aramis Ramirez
SS Jose Reyes (trade)
OF Josh Hamilton
OF Jacoby Ellsbury
OF Jay Bruce
Util Mike Lowell
BN David Murphy
BN Carlos Gomez
BN Joey Votto
BN Chase Headley (ww pickup)
BN Eric Byrnes (DL) (ww pickup)
DL Jeff Keppinger

SP Tim Lincecum
SP Aaron Harang (trade)
SP Justin Duchscherer
RP Mariano Rivera
RP George Sherrill
RP Fransisco Rodriguez (trade)
BN Armando Galarraga (ww pickup)
BN Todd Wellemeyer

In my trades I basically swapped:

Utley
Jeter
Ryan
VMart
Haren
Hunter
Jackson

for

Martin
DeRosa
Reyes
Teixiera
Harang
K Rod

Again, I think I did pretty well, this was done over the period of one day. I've been pretty busy with this as you can probably imagine.

I would say your team looks better. Utley is a beast, but your team looks pretty balanced now. I like teix at first along with reyes as an upgrade over jeter. Vmart was pretty worthless this year, and martin should be a great upgrade there as well. Harang isn't the BEST optino for pitchers, but for the trade value I think it worked out. I think you could use another SP just to sure up the rotation a bit, other then that you should be doing fine.

I have bad luck when it comes to signatures that the person either gets traded or hurt...in this case I hope he gets traded.

Thanks, it was a nerve-racking decision, but also getting KRod was a huge win for me in my eyes.
