I feel the need to tinker. Help me! (WHIR)

Postby CMCrai » Fri Apr 23, 2010 3:59 pm

12 team h2h Yahoo. 50 moves. Standard scoring. Here is my team.

C. Yadier Molina
1b. Ryan Howard
2b. Howie Kendrick
ss. Jason Bartlett
CI. James Loney
MI. Alexei Ramirez
OF. Curtis Granderson
OF. Shane Victorino
OF. Hunter Pence
UTIL. Hideki Matsui
UTIL. Kyle Blanks
BN. Rajai Davis
BN. Wiggington

SP. Roy Halladay
SP. Felix Hernandez
SP. Javier Vasquez
RP Francisco Rodriguez
RP Ryan Madson
RP Franklin Morales
P. James Shields
P. Derek Lowe.
P. J.A. Happ
BN. Stephen Strasburg.
BN. Colby Lewis

I currently have a waiver request in for Zambrano. With Happ going on the DL I have an open spot to pick someone up. My closers are not very good, and after Roy, Felix, and Shields I feel my other starters are heading towards the garbage. What do you think my most important weaknesses are, and how should I address them? Thanks (WHIR)....


(ps) I'm watching my daughter all day so I might not respond as fast, but I will.THANKS

Offensively, you look pretty balanced. Once Matsui gets OF eligibility you'll gain some more flexibility there.

RP looks to be your biggest area of concern. Madson has been awful and who knows what will happen when Lidge gets back. I'd just try to stay active on the wire to try to vulture some saves. You can throw Zambrano in there at a P slot to try to help your ratios (assuming his improve out of the bullpen). I think you're alright with SP for now. I don't think Vasquez will end up being as bad as he has been so far, but there's no way he'll be the same pitcher in the AL East as he was last year. You have 3 legit starters with Halladay, Felix, and Shields. I think if you ride those 3 and just keep an eye on matchups with everyone else, you should be fine.

It doesn't appear that you really need to make a move. Is your team struggling? Your players definitely seem good enough to contend. Like the other guy said, you should be fine...

I think you need a little more power in your lineup but thats difficult to come by in a 12 team. But all around pretty solid at every position a couple of guys are really slow starts like Alexei. I think Madson is going to be ok Lidge isnt coming back anytime soon he's doing pretty bad right now in the minors. But you'll be able to pick up a closer off of waivers by May.

I like your team a lot. I wouldn't panic. You might run into some trouble at RP in the future, but as someone already said, saves are easy to find later when you need them.
