Weak at SS and 3B, do I need to make a trade?

Postby Crimedogg32 » Thu Mar 31, 2011 2:02 am

12 team H2H 5X5, standard categories, I picked 9th

C- Carlos Santana
1B- Joey Votto
2B- Ian Kinsler
3B- Chipper Jones
SS- Yunel Escobar
OF- Matt Holliday
OF- Jay Bruce
OF- Jacoy Ellsbury
U- Brett Gardner
U- Brian Roberts
BN- Chone Figgins
BN- Lance Berkman

SP- Josh Johnson
SP- Roy Oswalt
RP- Jonathan Broxton
RP- Joe Nathan
P- Max Scherzer
P- Chris Perez
P- Colby Lewis
P- Jose Contrares
BN- John Lackey
BN- Erik Bedard
BN- Anibal Sanchez

My biggest question marks are obviously 3B and SS. I am anticipating Chone becoming 3B eligible and can hopefully replace Chipper when he will probably get injured. I feel solid at C, 1B, 2B, OF, and I like my pitcher staff although some might be concerned with my closers.

Did I draft to many speed only guys (Ellsbury, Gardner, Figgins, even Roberts) and look to trade them for help in other categories or do they just add nice balance to my team? I am also curious if anyone thinks I can survive with Chone/Chipper platoon at 3B and Escobar as my only SS?

Thank you for the help I appreciate it

I actually like this team. I think for now you can survive with the tandem that you have, and just keep an eye out for breakout players on the WW. I like your pitching staff alot and while you went with a good amount of speed, you also have some guys with good power upside as well so overall good job, especially for a 12 team league. 8.5/10

Lend a hand?
