How Good is my team? WHIR.

Postby NikeTxGuy » Mon Apr 26, 2010 4:46 am

Here's my team:

I'm part of a KEEPER League (Year 3 of 5) with the following categories:

R, HR, RBI, SB, TB, AVG (Batting Categories)
W, SV, BB, ERA, HLD, K/9 (Pitching Categories)

Here's my Squad:

C - Yadier Molina
1B - Mark Reynolds
2B - Dan Uggla
3B - Evan Longoria
SS - Jason Bartlett
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Adam Lind
OF - Matt Kemp
UT - Justin Upton
UT - Kelly Johnson
BN - Carlos Pena
BN - Vernon Wells
BN - Paul Konerko

SP - Johan Santana
SP - Cliff Lee
SP - Roy Oswalt
SP - Ricky Romero
SP - Wade Davis
SP - Colby Lewis

RP - Matt Lindstrom
RP - Franklin Morales
RP - Kevin Gregg
RP - Jon Rauch

I know I don't have any HLD guys... (but Fernando Rodney just got dropped... worth a pickup?) If so, who should I drop? (I have no available spots).

But my main question is what do y'all think of my team, thus far? (I know my pitching is a little weak). What BAT(S) would you trade and for a who? (name of pitcher I should try and target?)
C-Wieters/McCann 1B-Freeman 2B-Kipnis 3B-Trumbo SS-Segura OF-C.Gonzalez OF-Trout OF-Dunn UT-Bourn UT-Andrus
BN:McLouth-Wieters-Arenado

(SP) Kershaw-Moore-Corbin-Buchholz-T.Wood-Fernandez-Teheran
(RP) Rivera-J.Johnson-Gregg-Robertson

You have a crazy strong OF. I'd deal someone in your OF to get a SP... a good buy low/sell high candidate would be Lind/(any RedSox pitcher). Lester is not this bad and will improve as the year goes on, so I'd try him first... but I'm not sure if they'd catch that. Really it depends on their lineups but I'd also try to package one of your RP if that isn't good enough, so that you can also pick up Rodney. Maybe Gregg? I see him as having the least value out of your RP.

Overall your team's offense will carry you to never before seen heights. Pitching might seem weak right now but you have a good core 3 in Lee, Santana and Oswalt. Romero, Davis and Lewis all have considerable upside but I'd deal one of them for a better SP if possible. I'm pretty high on Romero and Davis out of those three.

Help?

Yeah, your OF is jacked up the wahzoo. After Santana/Lee your pitching drops off considerably, and SP depth is a legitimate concern. You have a couple "sell high" options, namely oswalt and romero, neither of whom I think can sustain their production. I would look for a 2-for-1 trade, packing either oswalt or romero with a bat for an upgrade at SP. That would free up space to add Rodney (which is an advisable add I think)

Your outfield is insane. I'd try to trade Longoria, Pena, or Bartlett for a proven pitcher. I usually don't like carrying more than 2 players that play on the same team on my own team. You rely too much on that particular team doing good in order for your team to succeed.

look towards the bottom.
