12 Team H2H 6x6, rate me, criticize me. WHIR

Postby CubsFan7724 » Tue Mar 24, 2009 9:16 pm

Extra cats are OBP and Quality Starts.

C - Pablo Sandoval
1B- Adam Dunn
2B- Brandon Phillips
3B- David Wright
SS- Orlando Cabrera
CF- Jay Bruce
OF- Matt Holliday
OF- Johnny Damon
Util - A-Fraud ( At pick 4.10, I couldn't pass on him.)
BN - Vernon Wells (yahoo crash responsible for this, and Wieters. Wieters not so bad since I backed him up with Sandoval)
BN - Matt Wieters
BN- Travis Snider (if anyone has a better OF sleeper

SP - Dan Haren
SP - Josh Beckett
RP - Jose Valverde
RP - Mike Gonzalez
P - Frank Francisco
P - Jason Motte
P - Ted Lilly
BN - Chris R Young
BN - Kenshin Kawakami

I could certainly improve at SS. Got caught on a bad run and had Peralta sniped right as I was poised to take him, so I was left with either Tejada or just waiting until the end and grabbing Theriot or Cabrera, but someone reached on Theriot. I feel like once A-Rod comes back I have a really solid team, but I think I may struggle a bit early. I sort of want a better late round sleeper than Snider, so I'm all ears. All the ones I was targeting got snapped up.

Don't really have any criticisms. Arod at the end of the 4th rd is a steal in H2H.

I think you have a nice little team there. I like that you have Wieters waiting in the wings because he will be HUGE if you wait it out. Sandoval is a more than adequate place holder. You have a good combination of speed and youth with some old vets (Dunn, Holliday, Damon) that will lead to consistency.
I think your one big weakness might be SP. I might be biased because I am not big on Beckett this year, but after him you have filled most of your pitching staff with RP. Are there any unheralded starters left out there (Ubaldo Jimenez or something) that you could snag up? Hope this helps. Help me out if you get the chance, I am on the page somewhere.

So your main issues:

SS and SP I would say. But i love your C situation and your RP situation. Should be a top 3 team.

Like I said in another thread Pablo Sandoval as your catcher in a H2H will have great benefits

I have 5 SP - Haren, Beckett, Chris R Young, Ted Lilly, and Kenshin Kawakami. Not great. Had Gallardo and Volquez taken right before me so that would have helped. I don't think my SP is fantastic but it's at least solid. And SP is easy to fill in with guys. Last year in this same league I grabbed Volquez.

I think I'm going to have some crappy roster decisions once A-Rod comes back and Wieters gets called up. But there are worse issues :-D

I agree. I really like this team. SS is obviously the one place you can improve but I think the rest of your offense can definitely make up for whatever shortcomings O-Cab has. I really can't find much else wrong with this team. Very nice job.

Nice looking team for a 12 team league. Like you said, you can find SP and it wouldn't hurt you to keep your eyes open for another quality SP.

Can't believe A-Rod fell that far to you. Good move getting him there and also grabbing Wieters and Motte.

I second the opinion that Adam Jones is a good young sleeper/possible breakout OF to grab if he's on the wire.

Good luck and Go Cubs, go!

Adam Jones was drafted. Most of the obvious sleepers were grabbed. Carlos Gomez is out there, thinking of switching out Snider for him possibly.

Funny thing is I went into this draft, not wanting A-Rod, but knowing if he fell to the 4th round I'd HAVE to take him. And he was still there for me, and I just couldn't pass on him there.

Maybe he was all steroids all along and he'll be terrible this year. Even if it's true, all I lost was my utility player.
