Just made trade for Hanley. How do I look?? WHIR

Postby lyons595 » Sun May 02, 2010 10:59 pm

I stream SP, but kinda like who I got right now. If everyone pitches to potential, I'm in good shape. I know I could use a RP or 2, however.

ESPN, h2h, 14 team, 18 roster spots + 1 DL, 4 RP max, daily. Cats: avg, r, hr, rbi, sb; w, k, sv, era, whip. Non-keeper. I stream SP weekly.

C Yadier Molina
1B Carlos Pena
2B Gordan Beckham
3B Evan Longoria
SS Hanley Ramirez
OF Matt Holliday
OF Ben Zobrist
OF Raul Ibanez
UTIL Austin Jackson
Bench Brad Hawpe (DL)

SP Cole Hamels
SP Tim Hudson
SP Jaime Garcia
SP Jake Peavy
SP Fausto Carmona
RP Kerry Wood (DL)
RP Mike Gonzalez (DL)
RP Matt Lindstrom
RP Tyler Clippard

Offense looks solid enough. I'd be a bit nervous about your SP, but if you stream I'm sure you're aware of that. I'm not personally a fan of hoping for guys to pitch to their potential. I'd trade potential for a proven commodity any day. But, if you stay active on the wire, this team should be plenty competitive.

Your team looks nice, but I'd probably drop Hawpe and add another reliever in there. With 3 DL players on your team, and only one slot for the DL, you're letting a lot of your roster go to waste.

Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

With the 4RP maximum, I'm kinda stuck this week. Jaime Garcia is listed as RP/SP, therefore he counts toward RP. I may keep him for a week or 2, but if he struggles and/or another FA SP stays hot (K Correia maybe), Jaime may get cut.
Plus, true closers are not exactly abundant on the WW, and KWood comes of the DL this week.

i think it looks alright...i am a believer in getting a good infield in any league i am in... IMO its the hardest to fill, and i like your infield a lot (not in love with C, but he is service-able)

thanks for your thoughts on mine :)
if you cant hang with the bigdawg get on the porch :)
