Any thoughts on my team?

Postby TheGhost » Mon Mar 30, 2009 2:08 pm

Just completed draft. 10 teams, CBS, Head 2 Head points league.

I don't think I'll keep all the closers... maybe try and trade one but not sure I'll get any bites. More likely just choose the best ones over the first few weeks. I'll try and trade Cory Hart too. Obviously, my pitching could be better. My league values pitching quite a bit because you get 20 points for a win. This is my first year playing and missed on a lot of the big name pitchers. How do you think I did given the scoring below? Thoughts/advice/tips? WHIR!

C: Ryan Doumit
1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Alexei Ramirez
3B: Evan Longoria
SS: Troy Tulowitzki
Mi: Rafael Furcal
Ci: Chris Davis
LF: Ryan Braun
CF: B.J. Upton
RF: Jacobi Ellsbury
Utl: Matt Kemp
Utl: Carl Crawford
Bench: Cory Hart, Elijah Dukes, Mike Aviles, Pablo Sandoval

SP's: Chad Billingsley, James Shields, Rich Harden, Josh Johnson, Chris Volstad, Jordan Zimmerman, David Price, Tommy Hanson, John Smoltz

RP's: Joakim Soaria, Bobby Jenks, Matt Capps, Chad Qualls, Heath Bell

Your team should be fine. Your SP is not that bad. Actually, I think your team is pretty good. I've never played with CBS so I'm not too familiar with the scoring. Volstad could be pretty good this year. I tried getting him late in my draft but ended up not being able to snag him. :-t

You could try packaging Hart and a pitcher for a stud SP. Because they count HRs for the most points, it looks like you have a good amount of power in that lineup with Pujols, Braun, Longoria, Davis, Ramirez. Kemp and Doumit should put up good numbers too.

Overall, it looks like a solid team.
Trojans, Lakers, Dodgers.

Solid team! Hitters are great, your SP has a few guys that could help if things go right for them this season. It might be worth looking into dealing a RP and a hitter to try and snag another solid SP to help there... all in all a good team though.
