Please Rate My Team: $400 for 1st Place

Ok, this is for our money league. I caught a lot of flack for trading away Josh Hamilton for B. Webb and my 11th rd pick. I think I turned out pretty good. Still need to add a SP and a RP once waivers clear tomorow.

Leave your link and I will rate your team.

Thanks!

Your hitting depends on Ludwick quite a bit for power, IMO. If he goes off, so do you. You have quality SPs at the top, and more than enough fliers that at least 1 or 2 of them could pan out and help you, nicely done. To some extent, you punted saves. Not the end of the world, but personally, I do not like to start the season giving away points.

I hear ya on the RP deal. I can still get Qualls, Street, Aardsma, Chris Ray, Brian Wilson, etc. Last year I did the same thing and got Wilson and BJ Ryan off the wire....So I ended up ok on saves. This year we have holds as 3 pts each, so I need to figure out the angle on that and RP off the wire.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your help.

With holds added as well, you do need some help. I do not know who is avail. on your WW, but it may be beneficial to go after some MR who are close to next in line for saves. It would help you on the holds side, and could lock up the 'next tier' of potential closers, if you know what I'm sayin.
It may be time to 'sell high' on your sleeper SP picks, for these type of guys. Holding tight for breakouts from these guys may put you in quite a bit of a hole.

Yeah, my keepers were Braun and Hamilton. I then traded Hamilton for B. Webb and my 11th pick. Maybe a stupid trade. Anyway, I then got the first pick and Cabrera was there for me. So.. Holds are 3 pts vs. 5 pts for a save in out league. We only have 2 RP spots in this daily H2H pts league. I am targeting Chad Qualls on the WW, but if you have some better suggestions, I am wide open. Here is a list of the WW options. Appreciate the help, and if you have any closer sleepers... I need em!
