Unsure of Drafted Team WHIR!

Postby Kuji » Sun Feb 15, 2009 5:22 pm

It's a standard Y! League H2H 12 Teams and 5x5 stats.
Full team:
C - Geovany Soto
1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Dustin Pedroia
3B - Chipper Jones
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Hunter Pence
OF - Jay Bruce
OF - Raul Ibanez
Util - Lastings Milledge
BN - Mike Aviles, Xavier Nady, Jose Lopez and Billy Butler
SP - Jake Peavy and Ervin Santana
RP - Matt Capps and Grant Belfour/Dan Wheeler
P - Zack Greinke and Manny Parra
Okay, incoming issues:
1) I noticed there aren't a lot of power guys in my team (aside from Prince Fielder), unless Jay Bruce/Hunter Pence/Xavier Nady break out
2) The lack of closers was due to an issue with one of the teams. From what I heard, this guy creates a team in a league and decides to mess the draft up, picking only pitchers/closers. Which from my stand point, looks as if I have to punt the whole thing and select guys that have high Ks/Good ERA although there's no Holds category.
3) I'm willing to drop either Belfour or Wheeler for other pitchers in FA that are in competition for last spots or are interesting enough to watch (Freddy Garcia for the Mets, Rich Hill for Baltimore)
4) Interesting FAs available are: Troy Glaus, Jeff Francoeur, Akinori Iwamura, David DeJesus, Rich Hill, Phil Hughes, Wandy Rodriguez, Ian Snell, Neftali Feliz, Paul Maholm.

That's about it, any feedback would be much appreciated, thanks a bunch in advance! =)

I'd try to package trade Pedroia for an OF'er. Aviles is very underrated and will put up great numbers since the 2B job is his. Stand pat on your pitchers, I don't like any of those guys on the WW. And if your into ratios, is Zumaya, Neshek, Ziegler, Devine, Wade there?

I too am a big Aviles believer and support the suggestion to trade Pedroia. On a side note Milledge has been working with a new batting coach and it will be interesting to see if he can get his BA up to a respectable .280. I'm willing to gamble he will, you may have a diamond in the rough there for this season.

To add on your question, Zumaya, Neshek and Wade (I assume you mean Cory Wade) are available. Ziegler and Devine are not.

I agree with the other guys. Try to package Pedroia for a power guy who plays OF.

As for closers. Dont give into the ass who drafted them all. He is probably going to try to rip people off in trades. Zumya should be in contention for the closer role for the tigers so I would give him an add and drop Balfour.
