Will I 3peat with this team?!?!?! $$$ League

Postby hpham45 » Sat Mar 21, 2009 9:37 pm

Goin for my third straight championship. Yahoo 10 team H2H 6x6 league. I had the #1 overall pick. I love my team. I'll probably drop Wandy if I find a better pitcher on the waiver. I'll probably drop Lindstrom for another OF. I do like having 5 closers as they make good trade throw ins.

Good looking team. I like how you covered Chipper by grabbing two other 3B eligible players (Zimmerman and Pablo). I had Chipper last year and he drove me crazy. An back up is essential.

I also think your SP staff is great. Good mixture of K's and low ERA's. Having 5 closers is a great strategy too. I agree that Lindstrom is the "weakest" and dropping him for a back up OF is not a bad idea. Try shopping him to a team w/ 1-2 Closers first. There has to be a little interest for him. Maybe you can upgrade Hunter using Lindstrom.

Your team is solid to great at every position, and you have any injury risks covered. Staff is good and closers are excellent. You should dominate the pitching cats every week.

What are the extra two categories (besides the traditional 5x5)?

Overall, I like the team too. You pretty much figure Chipper to miss 40 games or so, and you're covered there. Do you start 2 Util players? Sandoval is nice as he can slide into the C spot for Soto's inevitable days off. I see enough power, speed, and avg.

I like the pitching ... I think we had a lot of the same "value" picks on our cheetsheets. Can you actually start all 5 RPs (using the P roster spot)? If so, I like all the closers. You'll crush other teams for saves, with enough quality SP to compete in the other categories. I agree that Wandy is kind of expendable.

Very nice team, you should be able to dominate. But, no offense or anything, but it is kind of hard not to have a good team in a 10 team league.

Help me out?
