a very good team...I think.

Postby Lsquad » Wed Mar 23, 2011 12:07 am

I just finished my annual auction draft. its 10 teams, h2h points, and i think I came away with a pretty good team, though my impatience kept it from being a great one. (I missed out on a couple of steals because I overbid for huff. it was one of those moments where you regret the bid even before you click the button.) anyway, how do you think it turned out? I'd really appreciate a rating out of 10 and any advice you can offer. Thanks in advance, and of course, WHIR.

I'd give you an 8.5, really solid all around with very good hitters and your pitching doesn't have a weak spot. I don't much care for Hardy, nor do I like the pitchers you said you were going to move.

I'd say Lackey for sure pick up, and then maybe Uribe? Tough call. I think improving your bench and maybe trying to trade some of your pitching for a little less but an upgrade at SS would easily move you into the 9 range on batting alone, maybe even the 9.5 if you manage to fleece someone and not give up much for a Tulowitzki like character (maybe someone forgot to draft pitchers altogether?).

Idk, my 2 cents anyway, hope it helped!

Thanks for your help on mine.

I'd rate your team an 8 out of 10. I'd pick up Gio Gonzalez. If this is a keeper league and you have a DL, I'd store Wainwright there. Otherwise cut him. I'm pretty wary of AJ Burnett, so I would keep an eye on him in case he continues to get blown up.

For hitting, Id' look for a better SS. Looks like you'll need to make a trade though.

I would give you and 8 for your team.
If not a keeper league, drop wainwright. Also, I agree, drop Burnett for Lackey or Gonzalez.

As far as you offense, I like all except hardy. I would trade pitching for a SS upgrade if you can, that would really help.
Good luck

rate mine.

I give your team an 8. You do have the right combo of speed and power. I do think your Pitching staff needs one more solid stud but you should be able to find that by dealing a batter. Nice work

please help

Agree with others on the 8/10 rating. I would dump Burnett & Wainright, pick up Gio & Lackey. I think the hitting side of your team is pretty solid, other than SS. Though I think Nishioka is going to do a good job at SS for the Twins.

I would say you are a 7 or an 8. I think your offense has some weak spots, especially if they make it so Youk is ineligible for 1st base this year... not sure what they will do. Anyways, I suggest you keep Nishioka because he may become your best middle infeilder. Noone knows what he is going to do, but I personally like him better than your 2b and ss right now. I agree with others that if this is a non-keeper, drop wainwright. Good luck with your team!

A bit of an update. I beefed up my pitching by adding Lackey and Kuroda. I have a waiver claim in for snider, who i like, even though OF is hardly a need. Losing Morales for the first part of the season hurts, but I have the depth at CIF to deal with it. SS remains my one glaring hole, and I'm thinking about trading one or both of my closers for a shortstop. It seems to me that closers aren't worth as much in this format (scoring below). Any suggestions as to trades you think might be workable for a SS?

Any other feedback is welcome and appreciated. Thanks.
