Do I need to make any moves on the WW? Always return help!

Postby somervillesoxfan » Sun Apr 12, 2009 9:35 am

I am in a 10 team H2H league where we keep 5 players per year. The past few years I was able to make a bunch of trades to acquire some solid keepers, therefore this is my year to make a run at a championship before I have to trade some of these guys. I have posted some key names on the WW. Should I make any moves? Leave a link and I always respond.

CATS: R, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, AVG, OPS, W, L, CG, SHO, SV, K, SVOP, ERA, WHIP, K/BB

Roster:
C: Posada
1B: R Howard
2B: I Kinsler
3B: G Atkins
SS: H Ramirez
IF: J Votto
OF: Sizemore, Braun, Ibanez, Adam Jones, J Upton, D Fowler (We start 4)
UTIL: D Ortiz

SP: F Liriano, A Wainright, M Garza, AJ Burnett, M Parra, J Zimmermann (7 total P slots)
RP: Broxton, Morrow, Hanrahan, Motte, Villaneuva, Corpas
DL: Lackey, Smoltz


WW: Hitters: M Cameron, Fr Lewis, R Winn, W Tavarez, N Swisher, M Mora, K Kouzmanoff, J Hermida, Dan Murphy, (I REMOVED CHOO BECAUSE HE WAS CLAIMED VIA WW)

WW Pitchers: J Maine, J Guthrie, C Volstad, F Carmona, I Snell, J Sanchez, O Perez, M Pelfry, S Marshall, C Ray, L Nunez, S Casilla

To be honest, I like your team right now. We play with the same categories which I find rare, so it is nice to see someone else out there dealing with some different categories. You have assembled a good team there. When I first read the post I thought Matt Garza was a pitcher that was available and was ready to tell you to pick him up asap, but you have him and I think he is going to be HUGE this year. So, I do not have any great advice for you except to stay put for right now. Glad to see some red sox love on the board too.

Thanks for your advice.

I think your team is fine the way it is. There are no pitchers on the wire better than what you have, and your hitting is solid. The only thing I might do is pick up Choo in favor of Tavarez, but that's about it.

Thanks for the help on mine! I like your team right now, the only thing I think is kind of weak is your OF but it's not that bad and I cant really see you trade anyone to make it better. And if Andruw Jones turns it on this year then you'll be looking really good. You might want to think about picking up Winn as he is a very solid fantasy player, but right now I'd probably just stay put.

I think as far as relievers go, Ray and Nunez have a better chance of actually taking over their teams' closer roles than Villanueva and Corpas do. I'd rather be riding it out with those 2 guys.

Thanks for your help. My only advice would be lose A Jones, if that is Andruw. If it is Adam, stand pat, you are fine.

I hate to sound redundant, but I agree with everyone else. Your team is fine the way it is.

I like your team a lot. The only thing I could suggest is picking up Volstad over Manny Parra. Otherwise, solid staff.

I too think I like Volstad over Parra. You also have a glut of RP, even for a 10 team league. Thats tradebait to me, packaged with an ibanez type for an upgrade at OF, or even just a 2 for 1 upgrade in RP. That would give you room for someline like Dan Murphy, who if he stays batting second will put up numbers this year that are better than J upton (though since its a keeper, hard to justify dropping upton at this point).

I agree with the general sentiment that your team is looking good and you should generally stand pat.

I think a number of pitchers on the wire (Carmona, Volstad, Guthrie) may outperform Parra. I'd also watch Murphy in NY as a potential OF ugrade over Fowler.

I wouldn't drop Villanueva as he's closing until Percival is back. I'd consider dropping Corpas for Franklin (CBC in St. Louis it seems). Ray may indeed close in Bal later this year, but he's looked terrible so far.

Good luck!
