How can I improve my team?

Postby leafs4984 » Tue Mar 04, 2003 1:17 pm

I just completed a 21-man, 12-team, rotisserie, 5x5 draft on Yahoo. I had the 7th pick (I can't believe I landed Randy!) and I think I did pretty well. Here is my roster and the round I drafted each player. I'm looking for tips on any trades I can make or any players I should drop; or should I leave my roster as it is?

C Toby Hall (15)
1B Todd Helton (2)
2B Jose Vidro (8)
3B Eric Hinske (10)
SS Edgar Renteria (9)
OF Ichiro Suzuki (3)
OF Pat Burrell (5)
OF Jacque Jones (13)
Util Derrek Lee (11)
Bench Vernon Wells (19)
Bench Orlando Cabrera (20)
Bench Edgar Martinez (21)

SP Randy Johnson (1)
SP Tim Hudson (4)
RP Keith Foulke (6)
RP Matt Mantei (12)
P Mark Prior (7)
P Russ Ortiz (14)
P Braden Looper (16)
Bench Eric Milton (17)
Bench Johan Santana (18)

Good team overall. A few thoughts....

1.) consider dropping Milton. I'm not sure how long he'll be out, but even when he comes back it may not be worth taking up a bench spot when guys like Fogg or Wells may be on the waiver wire

2.) get a better catcher. Hall is good, but will be better utilized on the bench

3.) with RJ, Hudson, Prior, Foulke, and Mantei, your pitching will be great. You can afford to package up a decent SP like Ortiz with Cabrera to get a new catcher

Did you know there are no such things as "white" or "black" people?

I'm trying to trade milton and cabrera for either posade, i-rod or loduca, hoping that nobody knows that he's injured. If i can do this would you suggest picking up ohka to replace milton?

Here's my take...

Always willing to help a fellow Leaf fan...have you considered trading Burrell or Jones for a decent closer...Foulke and Mantei scare me...Foulke b/c of last year, and Mantei for injuries...and if Mantei stumbles out of the blocks, Kim could easily slide back into the closer role...try tradin' one of your startin' OF's for a strong closer like Percival or Gagne...you've got Wells on your bench, and he's good for 30hr and 100 rbi (or close to it)...he could fill in nicely...other than that, looks good...Randy with the 7th pick! Guess people think this is the year his arm will fall off (I'm not one of them)...Good luck...

I would get rid of Mr. Milton. He's going to be on the DL for awhile.

I'd keep Toby Hall if I were you. Yeah, there are better catchers out there, but I read something about him in the Yahoo fantasy headlines or something that said that Hall might have a decent year. Don't forget that Lou is in charge of the D-Rays now. He might have a good impact on Hall as long as he doesn't demonstrate his hat-kicking ability ;-) .

Good draft choices!

Peace from above :-)
