My favorite time of the year! Team rating time! (WHIR)

Postby CharlatanSin » Mon Mar 30, 2009 10:00 am

So, I finally had my draft yesterday. It was kind of a nightmare. My computer crashed right at the beginning, and so I missed the first few rounds. The autodrafter gave me: Albert Pujols, Brandon Webb, Brandon Phillips, Carlos Quentin and Shane Victorino. Out of those five, Pujols is the only one I would have taken myself, but it could have been worse, so oh well. I took the rest of the team myself, except for Vernon Wells, which happened when my computer froze for 6 seconds and Yahoo! took that as an opportunity to autodraft.

Anyway, as you can see, we play with big starting lineups. I'm already planning to drop Blalock once waivers clear, maybe for Ishikawa. Any other moves I should target? Strengths? Weaknesses?

WHIR as always.

This is a bump/roster update, since my WHIRs didn't work out (I'll go rate some more in the meantime).

I dropped Chris Perez for Rafael Perez, though I'm thinking of undoing that and stashing Chris Perez, or maybe Ryan Perry.

I dropped Eric Byrnes for Brett Gardner.

I picked up Travis Ishikawa for the extra spot with Glaus on the DL.

Do you guys see any glaring weaknesses on my team? I'd like to upgrade CI, since with Reynolds' fielding troubles, he looks likely to lose some PT. I could probably use some more power.

As for pitching, I think my top 3 starters are really good, and then there's a terrible drop. Now obviously, if Webb's out for an extended period of time, I could be in deep trouble. Should I target another starter, and who's expendable if I do?

EDITED TO ADD: Should I try to improve my SP through the waver wire first? Should I drop Weaver or Saunders for one of the following?
Millwood
Sonnanstine
Lohse
Guthrie
or some other sleeper likely to be available that I'm not thinking of?

I don't see much for saves right now aside from Gonzalez. Batting average (if it matters) looks iffy.

I think you're alright though.

Good luck!
