12 Team Yahoo League, 5x5 Head to Head Scoring

C - Jason Varitek
1B - Todd Helton
2B - Junior Spivey
3B - Eric Chavez
SS - Miguel Tejada
OF - Vladimir Guerrero
OF - Aubrey Huff
OF - Miguel Cabrera
UT - Jose Reyes

Bench - Eric Hinske
Bench - Cliff Floyd
Bench - Corey Patterson

SP - Josh Beckett
SP - Randy Wolf
RP - Braden Looper
RP - Danys Baez
P - Brandon Webb
P - Carlos Zambrano
P - Shawn Chacon

Bench - Robb Nen
Bench - Jose Contreras

FYI - I plan on dropping/trading Spivey once Reyes becomes 2B eligible and then picking up some extra pitching. Nenn may start the season on the DL (again) and I would then move him to my DL spot and pick up yet another pitcher.

Please let me know what you think! For some reason everyone in my league was drafting pitching early and often. I think I was able to get some great offensive players in the early middle rounds that were overlooked. I found a few bargain pitchers towards the end that I also feel were overlooked.

Thanks!

I think that you could definately stand to move Hinske because you've got Cabrera backing Chavy up at thid already. I would package him with Wolf or Webb to see what that would get you.

I agree. I'm also thinking that moving Reyes while he's a hot name might be a good idea. I like to draft the so-called sleepers, then take the chance and trade for a guy who brings a safer package to the roster, especially when the sleeper in question is a big injury risk like Reyes.

Looks solid to me except RP. You have a lot of question marks there. Your offense is great. I wouldn't trade Reyes. You need the SB.

I would definitely like to move Hinske if I'm given the chance. I was able to pick him up at 206 when his average draft position is 134. He was a bargain I couldn't resist that late in the draft.

Yeah, my RP is usually a little shaky. I just can't make myself pick up closers who will contribute most of their stats to 1 category when there are still really good players left on the board who will contribute across the board to more categories. I was happy to be able to get 4 closers in the later rounds. With the quantity I'm hoping to pick up enough saves to be competitive without blowing up in any of the other pitching categories.

As for Reyes, I plan on holding him for now. He's my main stolen base threat and he will be eligible at both short and second, which is a nice bonus. I didn't plan on drafting him despite being a Mets fan because of the injury concerns. I figured I'd get a Polanco-type 2B late in the draft, but when Reyes was still on the board at 110, with an average spot of 77 at ESPN, I had to pull the trigger :).

Thanks to everyone for the comments so far, they've been a great help. Anyone else who wants to contribute, feel free, I'm always open to suggestions and usually need them!

If you can move Hinske, maybe for a reliever, that would be a big help. Otherwise, pretty solid.

You need to move Hinske. Not only do you need a closer, but you also need help @ 2B. Spivey will be replaced in the Brewers lineup by mid-year, and Reyes' ability to stay healthy and stay in the lineup is a BIG question mark.

Looks like a great team to me. very solid offense, and pitching is just as good too. I like your rotation. Beckettt - wolf - webb - zambrano - contreras. Your RP situation seems ok with chacon added to looper and baez. Reyes at 2nd seems like a good idea to me also. You could then put patterson on your util. I'm also a believer of hinske and think he should be putting up some nice numbers up there this season, so you might wanna switch him around with corey in your util slot. Overall it definitely looks like a solid team with a plenty of chance to win the league. ;-D ;-D
