My first ever fantasy team

Postby J Katt » Mon Mar 08, 2010 1:33 am

So, a friend of mine dragged me into his fantasy baseball league, but up until now I have never even thought about playing. Nonetheless I gave in, paid my 25 dollars, did about a weeks worth of researching (much of it on here before registering) to do well, and drafted my first team a couple hours ago. This is what I came out with, how did I do? and how can I improve? I've received about 4 trade offers already for Adam Jones.

This is being played as a standard ESPN setup with standard point values and 10 Teams.

C: Matt Wieters
1B: Adrian Gonzalez
2B: Brandon Phillips
3B: Ryan Zimmerman
SS: Hanley Ramirez
1/3: Chone Figgins
2/S: Jose Lopez
OF: Justin Upton
OF: Andre Ethier
OF: Adam Jones
OF: Chris Coghlan
OF: Colby Rasmus
UT: Milton Bradley

BN: Adrian Beltre

P: Ubaldo Jimenez
P: Scott Baker
P: Chad Billingsley
P: Jair Jurrjens
P: Trevor Hoffman
P: David Aardsma
P: Scott Kazmir
P: Bobby Jenks
P: Brian Matusz

BN: Stephen Strasburg
BN: Ryan Rowland-Smith

Thank You,

Your offense looks very solid, you have a nice balance of speed and power there. On the pitching side, with the uncertainly of how well Strasburg will perform, I would say you could use another SP. An SP who's proven and reliable. Just out of curiosity, what offers did you receive for Jones?

Your offense looks very nice and balanced. Your weakness would probably be starting pitching, but you do have some high potential there with Kazmir and Billingsley. I would look to improve the pitching but I wouldn't be overly anxious to make a big deal before the season starts.

If you get any proposals post them on the boards, people always like to go after the new guy with trade proposals ;-D
