12 team deep roto league. Please rate my team, WHIR (always)

Postby krunchyfrogg » Thu Mar 10, 2011 12:43 pm

I've made a few moves since my last thread, and I wanted to know what you guys thought:

This is a 5x5 roto league, with 12 teams. Daily lineup changes. Here's my roster:

C Joe Mauer
C Josh Thole
1B Kevin Youkilis
2B Robinson Canó
3B Chris Johnson
SS Starlin Castro
CI Kendry Morales
MI Dan Uggla
OF Hunter Pence
OF Torii Hunter
OF Vernon Wells
OF Denard Span
Util Luke Scott
BN Ty Wigginton
BN Lance Berkman
BN Magglio Ordóñez

SP Josh Johnson
SP Zach Greinke
RP Mariano Rivera
RP Carlos Mármol
P Joe Nathan
P José Valverde
P Derek Holland
P Homer Bailey
BN Edinson Vólquez
BN Mike Pelfrey
BN Brandon Webb
BN Chris Young

I know I need to improve my pitching. I would like to add two more good relievers.

I just made a trade to bring me Youkilis, which solves my third base problem (at least, it does after a few days). I'll slide youk into 3B, Morales into 1B, and I've got a few CI candidates right now.

I think your offense is pretty solid. I would definitely drop Encarnacion after Youk gets 3rd eligibility and slide Kendry into 1st. I've never understood having to start 2 catchers but that's not here nor there.

Like you said, your SP's are suspect. Greinke is hurt now and Josh Johnson is made of glass. I think Webb is toast and I have never been a Bailey fan. Big Pelf needs to have a huge year for your team. So I guess I'd look to trade for one or two improved SP's.

I'll comment on yours in a moment. OG post edited after a few adds/drops. One was dropping Encarnacion now to add Chris young. If he stays healthy, he could be a legit #2 starter, and I'll live with Chris Johnson as my 3b for 5 days.

Being a mets fan, I am very skeptical that Young will stay healthy. He hasn't been able to do it for years.

There's a lot of truth in this statement. We root for the same team, but if Young stays healthy and pitches two good games for me, he would have already done more for this fantasy team than Encarnacion.

I like your team a lot, I would try to see if any of the rookie SPs are available. Minor, Pineda, Mcdonald? They would be better options with high risk/upside compared to some of your worse SPs.

I really like your closers and infield.

Nice draft.

Thanks intense.

Of the guys you mentioned, only Pineda is available.

Who would you suggest dropping? I was thinking of dropping Berkman, but you suggested one of my high risk pitchers. Is this guy even guaranteed to break camp with the team?

Thanks man!
