UPDATE (5/16/11): What do you think of my team? WHIR.

Postby NikeTxGuy » Fri Apr 29, 2011 9:28 pm

Latest Update: Well, the Hanley Ramirez trade was processed (I got him! ;-D) so now with a minor tweak here and there, I added another big bat to my already excellent batting lineup, as well as a relief pitcher who will get me saves! My team now
looks like this (I am part of a ROTO 10-Team Keeper League... in 2nd place (UPDATE - 5/16/11 - I was 13 points behind first place but now I am only 1.5 points behind first place! ;-D )

C - Matt Wieters - Drafted
1B - Adrian Gonzalez - K
2B - Neil Walker*
3B - Evan Longoria - K
SS - Hanley Ramirez*
OF - Carlos Gonzalez - K
OF - B.J. Upton (FA)
OF - Curtis Granderson*
UT - Gaby Sanchez (FA)
UT - Shin-Soo Choo*
BN - Billy Butler (FA)

BN - Ian Desmond (FA)

DL - Ike Davis*

SP - Alexi Ogando (FA)
SP - Ian Kennedy (FA)

KEY

Drafted - Was on original team.
K - Keeper (from last season)

UPDATE (5/16/11): I am regretting not picking up Hosmer, ever since I.Davis went down and placed on the DL, but oh well... Would you make any moves to get Jose Bautista? (I was thinking on trading Choo + King Felix + Cordero or Choo + G.Sanchez + King Felix... THOUGHTS??? I am thinking on adding Bautista because I feel like my team is lacking in power but speed is most definitely there!)

How many teams are in this league? I think this team is great. You have an above average infield, outfield, and pitching staff. In a 10 team league I'd consider this a very good team, and in a 12 team league, I consider this team phenomenal. You have an amazing amount of 1st and 2nd round picks on your roster. I don't really see any holes in the roster. Well done!

Well thank you for your positive feedback! ;-D With that being said, I am trying to maybe package Kuroda for a Joel Hanrahan-type closer? (maybe - if that will work? because i know my relief pitching is weak)

To answer your question, this team is involved in a 10-Team KEEPER League! As of right now, the settings are set to keep 5 each year, but that could change (if majority vote wants more). ;-D

Agreed this team is very good. Longoria's return is imminent and Hanley is bound to get hot. The fact that it's a keeper league too is bonus.

Please help with mine

Your pitching is stelar! Theres work that can be done with that batting lineup though. Decent none the less. I always like to try and stack my lineup first than work on the pitching because if you look at last years point totals there were only a handful of pitchers that scored enough points at the end to draft them this year. Pitching IS important but batting is just a little more important. I also like to insert RP/SP in my Relief slots because the BEST closer will still probably only score about as much as your 3rd or fourth best pitcher. If you put a SP/RP in there you take advantage of some points : D Here's mine if you care to peek. 12 man Mixed league for 1,500$

First of all, I love your infield. Your OFs are great also only if Cargo and Choo would start hitting like they're capable of. You have 3 aces and pitching depth looks pretty good too. I've never played in a league shallower than 12 team so I'm not so sure but that team should definitely contend to win the league imo. :-)
