Brand new to fantasy baseball - please analyze my first team

Postby drez » Thu Apr 07, 2011 11:41 pm

I'm brand new to fantasy baseball. I grew up watching baseball but about 10-12 years ago, my interest in the sport fell off. I've recently wanted to get back into it, but of course I now don't know much about the players aside from from superstars and the names I hear a lot on Sportscenter. I figured fantasy baseball is a good way to dive back into the sport, so I had my first draft tonight.

I have no clue how well I did, as I didn't have much of a strategy. Please let me know your thoughts and where my weaknesses are so I can improve if I have any other drafts. I'm sure it's not pretty, so please be as brutally honest as you must. I have to admit I didn't have a clue who to grab for the Utility and Bench positions (and once I didn't select on time), so any advice on how to shore those up especially, please let me know.

Thanks!!

How many teams are in this league?

I ask because your roster looks superb! Did you autodraft? The only real weakness I can see is the back-end of your SP and a relative lack of SB's. Otherwise, I'd think you definitely have real chance to win your league. But try to address those issues.

Let me know who's on the WW.

Good luck! ;-D
