H2H - 10 team league - drafted 6th

Postby steamer33 » Tue Apr 07, 2009 12:35 pm

Hi, I'm new to the forum, 1st year of baseball & I'm playing in a 10 team - H2H - 5x5 - nonkeeper league. I would appreciate any suggestions of areas my team needs improving. I focused on position players early & filled up with pitchers later on. I only have 2 RP, not sure if that's the way to go or not. Also, my bench is all position players. Should I have a pitcher in there? Thanks for any feedback. There are a couple of players on the WW that I've had my eye on (Dukes, Bonifacio).

C-Mike Napoli
1B-Derrek Lee
2B-Chase Utley
3B-Garrett Atkins
SS-Rafael Furcal

OF-Matt Holliday
OF-Many Ramirez
OF-Vernon Wells

Seeing that you already have Huff/Atkins/D.Lee, I wonder about the value of having M.Reynolds/Giambi as 2/3 of your bench. I would cut at least one of those dudes(if not both) and shore up the middle infield.

Overall, I like your team. Starting pithching is pretty deep and Broxton is going to be a beast this year.

Have a great season.

Thanks. I think I am going to drop Giambi. The only middle infielders out there are Freddy Sanchez & Orlando Hudson. What about dropping Giambi & picking up some SP depth in Johnny Cueto? He's available. Or I could grab Dukes & stash on my bench?

Not much there. Play it by ear, if Furcal and Hill stay healthy, great. Hold onto what you've got and see how things play out. With such a shallow bench I would be inclined to let my injuries dictate the population of those 3 spots. Keep in mind, you probably have enough depth at SP to trade some if need be.

That is how I'd be thinking.

Have fun.
