How did I do? WHIR

Postby skjelstrom » Sat Mar 26, 2011 12:07 pm

12 team Roto league.
Stats: Hitting - R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB
Pitching - W, CG, SV, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/9, QS

C- Miguel Montero
1B - Miguel Cabrera
2B - Dan Uggla
3B - Mark Reynolds
SS - Ian Desmond
OF - Justin Upton
OF - Jay Bruce
OF - Ichiro Suzuki
UTIL - Brett Gardner
Bench - Grady Sizemore
Bench - Tsuyoshi Nishioka

SP - Roy Halladay
SP - Francisco Liriano
RP - Jonathan Broxton
RP - Joe Nathan
P - Dan Haren
P - Ricky Nolasco
P - Aroldis Chapman
Bench - Jeremy Hellickson
Bench - Jhoulys Chacin
Bench - Jake McGee

Notes:
With CG, W, and QS I had to take Halladay early even though it goes against my typical strategy of waiting on pitching. Also, I had draft position 10 and got really lucky with Cabrera falling that far :-D On another note, my internet went out and auto-drafted Ichiro..... I don't like him but it actually works out because I need someone to balance Reynolds avg killing.

I think you have really good pitching, the uggla and reynolds combo can put a dent in you avg. I am really liking ichiro he stole 43 last season and with a great batting average. I really like haren and i think he might have a big year so keep an eye on that.

Your pitching staff is very good. I agree with the above poster that your average could take big hit with the uggla/reynolds combo.

Even Bruce and Upton could drag down your average. id be proactive in looking for good average guy off the wire or work a trade. You could trade Uggle or Reynolds to someone in need of power in return you could get a more balanced player.

hope that helps

help please

In looking at your league scoring AVG is not a category, So you should be fine Uggla, Reynolds, Upton, Bruce should be solid souces of Rs, HRs, RBIs. Pitching staff is great both SP and RP. Cabrera falling 10 is crazy and Sizemore could be a steal if he can get healthy.

Wow! What a pitching staff! Be wary of your RPs. I see Broxton repeating 2010 and Nathan will take a while to get back to form. You may want to take a look at the WW for a Chapman-like guy, such as Kuo, the guy behind Broxton.

I am not a fan of either Upton. Sizemore could end up being a steal. All in all a good team.

Yeah I don't see the AVG killers in Reynolds and Uggla TOO much of a problem because the league doesn't count AVG. Obviously it will hurt H though, but slightly less I think.
