1st Year Keeper League Team, How'd I do? WHIR

Postby sportsjerk » Thu Apr 02, 2009 10:10 pm

It's a 12 team, roto, 6x6 scoring (standard 5x5 with holds and OPS), keeper league in it's first year. I had the 9th pick overall and it was a snake draft.

Chump Change
1. (9) Miguel Cabrera 1B, 3B
2. (16) Evan Longoria 3B
3. (33) Jason Bay OF
4. (40) Vladimir Guerrero OF
5. (57) Troy Tulowitzki SS
6. (64) Josh Beckett SP
7. (81) Joe Nathan RP
8. (88) Joakim Soria RP
9. (105) Yovani Gallardo SP
10. (112) Robinson Canó 2B
11. (129) Josh Johnson SP
12. (136) Erik Bedard SP
13. (153) Brad Hawpe OF
14. (160) Willy Taveras OF
15. (177) Jorge Posada C
16. (184) John Maine SP
17. (201) Billy Wagner RP
18. (208) Shin-Soo Choo OF
19. (225) Jair Jurrjens SP
20. (232) Takashi Saito RP
21. (249) Adam LaRoche 1B
22. (256) Rafael Pérez RP

And before anyone calls me on it, I know Wagner is hurt, didn't realize it until after I took him though. We have 2 Utility spots, 2 SP, 2 RP, 3 P and 1400 innings max.

I'll help you in return, just leave a link.

Your team looks good. Solid batting with good mix of starters and closers. And from the other post...yes I am a huge Red Sox Fan...

At first glance I think it looks pretty good. Perhaps not league champion-like, but there is a lot of upside to most if not all of these players.

What I like the most:
Your 1st 5 (I'm assuming that this is the order you drafted them in), Hawpe and Taveras (who I think too many people undervalue), and Choo.

What I don't like so much:
Nathan, Cano, Posada (but I also picked him)

Undecided:
Beckett

I personally believe that pitching, more so than any other position in baseball, has so much turnover in who's good and who's not that it is practically a crap-shoot from year to year. Some people have different opinions on the value of pitchers too, so while I may think that the pitching could be improved, many others would probably say that it is sufficient.

Definitely like the upside with this team. At worst your average, but if your upside comes through (ie. JJ and Gallardo having the seasons they could have), then you finish at or near the top. Love Cabrera as your first keeper and Longoria as your second...two studs that are extremely young yet! At first I thought you took Tulo early but in a keeper this is probably not the case (how many do you keep tho?). Agree with the above comment on Hawpe being a great pick for some power (moving up in the order this year also) but also agree that I don't like Posada as your C. Overall, good balanced team from what I can see with some great young guys for a keeper league. Shouldnt be short on any categories out of the gate so I probably wouldnt look to do any moves right now.

Thoughts on mine please?
