Postby espnsportsfan » Sat Apr 11, 2009 6:50 pm

10 team 5x5 roto keeper league

C-Martin, Inge
1B-Votto
2nd-Kinsler
3rd-Zimmerman
SS-Peralta
MI-Pedroia
CI-Encarnacion
OF-Hamilton, Bay, Markakis, Victorino, Choo
Util-Hardy
P-Lincecum, Kazmir, Wainwright, Liriano, Weaver, Kershaw, Carmona
RP-Francisco, Villanueva
BN-Stewart, Sandoval, D Young, Wieters, Zimmermann, Hanson

Some intriguing waiver guys are Spilborghs, Snider, Dickerson, Teahen, Andrus, Konerko, Helton....pitchers Uehara, J Sanchez (SF), Cahill, Sonnanstine

Are any of these guys worth my time? Are there any positions i should try and upgrade at with my bench depth/prospects?

Your SP is stacked! You could easily uise one of thos guys to get a RP and maybe another 1B. I like Votto but depth at 1B is nice. I like your balance in the OF. Sp is always valuable so dont sell cheap esp since it is early in the year.

I dont know how well CArmona is going to do this year so I would try to trade him. Indian pitching sure seems to be known for doing great one year and then its downhill after that (CC last year, Floyd this year... ok Im kind of exaggerating but still I dont know how well hes going to hold up). Your SP is already stacked and you could trade him for help in other places like 1B.



Help me?

I'd be looking to make a move for a reliable closer. Francisco and Villaneuva aren't gonna cut it in a 10 team league. You have 4 catchers on your roster, maybe dangle one of them for a good closer?

The rest of your team looks solid. ;-D

You need to trade for more solid closer. Once Hoffman comes back, your only closer will be Francisco.

Also, I'd drop Young for Spilborghs.

Drop Delmon Young and Inge and grab Spilbourghs and Snider ASAP. especially if this is a keeper. Snider is going to be a stud

Drop Carmona for J.O. Sanchez or Trevor Cahill. Better strikeout potential and better keeper potential with either of those guys.

What positions can fill your UT position? Hardy is a nice SS/MI, but if you can put a 3B/1B in that spot, then he's less attractive. You could try dangling him for a better bat. Or you could move him to MI and dangle Kinsler or Pedroia for a really big bat.

I need keeper help too:
