Please Rate my newly changed team (WHIR)

This was an auto-drafted team which I actually missed the draft and I really didn't like the players I ended up with. The team led me to last place with slumping guys like Crawford, Morneau, Cuddyer, Liriano and etc.

I managed to make some trades and ended up with this team.

12 team roto 5x5

C: Vmart
1b: Howard
2b: Prado
3b: Wright
ss: A.Gonzales
of: Ellsbury
of: Hunter
of: Joyce
ut: Konerko
ut: Ortiz
bn: Cuddyer
bn: Hosmer
bn: Furcal

Sp: Halladay, Cliff Lee, Oswalt, Scherzer, Myers
Rp: Fuentes, Capps, Padilla, Sanchez, Melancon
DL: Bailey


I'm currently in 10th place.

Competable from here on out? I know I'm shallow at OF and might make another trade to upgrade there.

Thanks in advance.

Looks like a good team with some great potential. I like your mix of power in Howard, Wright, Martinez, Ortiz. Ellsbury looks to be having a bounce back year from his fluky injuries last year, he will make this team go with his SB.

Your starting pitching rotation is awesome. Scherzer is your sleeper, but Tigers writers/talking heads think Scherzer and Verlander are one of the best 1-2 punches in baseball. When Bailey gets back shortly, it'll allow you to drop Fuentes or move one of the closers. I'd find a team that needs closer help, and try taking one of your weaker OF + an RP and upgrade to a better OF.

Thanks for the help on mine!

Looks pretty solid.

I agree that it would make sense to package a closer + a hitter for an OF upgrade. Maybe even a closer + Ortiz or Konerko, so you can also get more roster flexibility (since you have a lot of 1B/DH types right now).

I agree with the others, this looks like a good team. I like your rotation and your infield looks good. To upgrade your OF I'd package a 1B or Ortiz with a pitcher, or maybe Cuddyer if someone would take him (that offense hasn't looked good so far).

Team looks pretty good for a salvaged wreck ;-D

Ellsbury needs some better company in your OF, as you indicated. I would try to sell high on Matt Joyce (I'm not a believer) and market a closer or two.

While everyone seems to love Scherzer, I think his performance will get rather inconsistent as the season goes on. If you're living on the edge, you might trade him while he's hot and get a strong, young bat in return.

Basically I agree to what this person said... Good luck! ;-D and thanks for your help on my post!
