Contender? WHIR

Postby Niffoc4 » Fri Jan 30, 2009 12:11 am

This is a team in a 20-team league where we keep 10 regulars and 3 rookies. It is 7x7 league with the extra categories being OPS and TB on offense and K/BB and Holds in pitching. IMO this makes sluggers clearly the top commodity... I think my team could be good this year what do you think?
C Russ Martin
1B Conor Jackson
2B Ian Kinsler
SS Clint Barmes
3B Alex Rodriguez
LF Shin-Soo Choo
CF Chris Young
RF Vladimir Guerrero
Util Hunter Pence
Bench: Nick Swisher, Russ Branyan, Adam Jones, Alberto Callaspo,

SP Roy Halladay
SP Matt Garza
RP Chris Perez
RP Jeremy Affeldt
P Carlos Villanueva
P Mike Adams
P Round 12 (probably Miguel Batista... I need saves)
P Round 13 TBD
Bench: Scott Baker, Randy Johnson, Joba Chamberlain, Round 14

I am thinking of taking another RP in round 14, since I could put Villanueva (and Batista I believe) in the SP slots. This will enable me to (hopefully) rack up more holds and innings with decent ratios for everyone but Batista.

Looks like a solid team. Is this a keeper league? I don't know how you would get Kinsler and ARod in a 20 team league.

yeah its a keeper... keep 10 regulars and 3 rookies... I think we're in year 5 now. I traded Morneau plus something (I don't remember) for Kinsler last year.

looks pretty good....definetly should be able to contend in the hitting department. You might want to look for another stud pitcher after halladay.

Good you have some young talent to replace the ageing veterns in the future!

Very nice team. Looks like you're on the right track with the upcoming picks too.
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.

Great team! I like your bench players a lot - they should prove very valuable.

In regards to the rest of your draft, you could really use another SS option. I don't trust Barmes at all. You also (as you noted) need to target some closer options.

Otherwise, this team looks awfully solid. If you could shore up your SS, add two closers or so, and perhaps nail down another rising SP, I see no reason why you can't contend.

Help with mine? It's about three topics down entitled "pick 1 of 3...". Thanks.
