Can this team win it all WHIR

Postby Guzman24 » Sat Apr 04, 2009 7:52 pm

Had 8 solid keepers going into this year. Having 2 aces I focused on filling out my hitting first. I think I could use a bit more SP depth but I'm hoping that Johnson and Jimenez have decent years and that Escobar does well when he gets back. My 2 aces should hopefully carry me for the most part.

12 teamer H2H 5x5 (OBP instead of Avg)

1B Howard
2B Utley
3B Figgins

SP Webb

I can't find a weakness right now.

If you finish worse than 3rd, you've had some tough luck.

That is a great team overall. I like that you picked up Escobar. I think he will return to form.

I like your team a lot but with Reyes, Kemp, and Abreu, I'm not sure if Figgins is needed for extra SBs and there are a ton of awesome 3b out there that could help you a lot.

the offense is solid. Figgins is good enough at 3B and your team is good in SB. Reyes and Figgins will get alot. Lee/Abrea will add some. im not sure Kemp goes 35 again. i think he could end up closer to 25, which is still good.
you could maybe trade Figgins and an OF for a top hitting 3B and an OF who can get steals, but its like like switching positions of Figgins and whoever in the OF ..so thats not really needed.

your 2 aces are solid with Webb and Lincecum. Johnson should be good. i think after that you have good potential with Sanchez/Jimenez/Parra/Escobar/Zimmerman. it would be nice to have someone more secure/safe for your 3rd/4th type pitcher. someone more consistent to where you know what to expect. im not sold on Jimenez. he walks alot. those walks could hurt in Coors. i think he ends up with an ERA into the 4's with a high WHIP. he has potential for more, but its a risk.
if Marmol gets the closers role away from Gregg you would be alot better position there. im not sure i trust Francisco in Texas.

Figgins is overrated and is basically a SB guy only. I think there'd be a better 3b option out there. Overall you look very solid.
