Can the top end talent make up for depth. 100% WHIR

Postby rock545454 » Sun Apr 04, 2010 8:51 am

12 team, roto. 5x5


C Russell Martin (LAD - C)
1B Prince Fielder (Mil - 1B)
2B Howie Kendrick (LAA - 2B)
3B Evan Longoria (TB - 3B)
SS Hanley Ramirez (Fla - SS)
OF Ryan Braun (Mil - OF)
OF Juan Pierre (CWS - OF)
OF Kyle Blanks
Util Miguel Cabrera (Det - 1B)
Util Vladimir Guerrero
BN Michael Brantley(Cle - OF) (i figure btw Pierre and Brantley I will have one solid 3rd OF who will carry me in steals).
DL Carlos Beltran

SP Jon Lester
SP Josh Beckett
RP Brian Fuentes
RP Matt Lindstrom
P Kevin Slowey
P Johnny Cueto
P David Price
P Frank Francisco
BN Erik Bedard
BN CJ Wilson
BN Clay Buchholz

My take:

Strengths: top end players, power, average, rbis, runs

weaknesses:
Kendrick (i know that he is risky). Catcher (if Russell doesn't return to form), the back end of my rotation.
Outfield (i was hoping that Beltran would be my second OF, but the darn injury bug means I have to plug in Kyle banks).

please leave a link.

Wow, you aren't kidding. Fielder, Hanley, Braun, Miggy, and Longoria on the same squad? Your OF makes me cringe a little bit, it would be interesting to know who is available. Beltran playing with alleviate that big time. I like the pitching a lot too, but might not waste a roster spot on Bedard for several months (unless you have DL).

Please take a look at my 5x5 OBP: viewtopic.php?t=406440

I agree on the OF being a question mark. I'd also be curious to know who is still available. I would think someone who could help you more than Blanks.

Go out and look for a Kendrick backup option just in case. You never know with him.

I love your UTIL plays. I think Vlad will have a great year in Texas so I'm assuming you got great value in the draft on him.

Good luck with Fuentes but at least you have a back up option already with him!

Very nice team! I like your strategy of top starters vs. depth - thats how you win championships. You weaknesses are RP, and maybe OF, but your OF could surprise.

This must be a keeper league, correct? I make that assumption as you seem to have several first round type players.

I like this team. I don't think your OF is the best,but if Beltran comes back healthy it would be alot stronger. I like Pierre, he is going to get AB's and he helps in Avg, Runs, steals. Love the pitching at the top, I have Clay Bucholz in another league. Hope he does well, but I have a few worries about him, but he is on a good team so he should get you some wins. All in all I like your chances this season.
