I'm usually a high stakes fantasy basketball player, but there was some good money involved in this baseball league, so I decided to join it.
Just wanted to get your thoughts. Large number of positions. I went with the strategy of heavy hitting, pitching is suspect and a little risky. H2H 12 team league with these categories: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, L, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, NH Strengths? Weaknesses?
C Bengie Molina (SF - C) 1B Mark Teixeira (NYY - 1B) 2B Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B) 3B Evan Longoria (TB - 3B) SS Orlando Cabrera (Oak - SS) IF Chris Davis (Tex - 1B,3B) LF Jayson Werth (Phi - LF,CF,RF) CF Matt Kemp (LAD - CF,RF) RF Jermaine Dye (CWS - RF) OF Torii Hunter (LAA - CF) Util David Ortiz (Bos - Util) Util Elijah Dukes(Was - LF,RF) BN Cameron Maybin (Fla - CF) BN Ken Griffey Jr. (Sea - CF,RF) BN Plácido Polanco (Det - 2B)
SP Edinson Vólquez (Cin - SP) SP Ricky Nolasco (Fla - SP) SP Justin Verlander (Det - SP) SP Kevin Slowey (Min - SP) SP Ubaldo Jiménez (Col - SP) RP Brian Fuentes (LAA - RP) RP Kerry Wood (Cle - RP) RP George Sherrill (Bal - RP) P Manny Parra (Mil - SP) BN Jonathan Sanchez (SF - SP)
Overall good team, other then SS in Cabrera. Will get you some consistent play, but nothing special. Your SPs are a little bit of a risk, but all with some good upside. RPs I'm a little less into. I think both Sherrill (Ray) and Fuentes (Arredondo) are a risk to be replaced this season, but there are few closers out there that dont have that risk. So, good team, but with a few tweaks could be even better.
i think your roster looks pretty good. you have a nice balance of hitters. i agree with your starting pitchers not being as strong, but you seemed to target hitters anyway. i think fuentes has great closer potential. he might surprise.
Overall pretty strong team. I really like your IF other than Cabrera. You have a nice speed/power combo at most positions. I am not very big on Verlander this year, but whatever floats your boat. I think you have very reasonable RP depth with Sherrill, Wood and Fuentes, but keep your finger on the trigger for Chris Ray in Baltimore. Help me out if you get the chance: viewtopic.php?t=373614
