Fun Thread: How far has your team come?

Postby KaPluie » Tue May 17, 2011 3:56 pm

I think it would be fun to post our start-of-the-season roster and current roster, to see how far our teams have come. Please comment on how you think our teams have progressed (or digressed)

Starting Roster:
C - Jorge Posada (C)
1B - Joey Votto (1B)
2B - Dan Uggla (2B)
3B - Michael Young (3B/2B)
SS - Elvis Andrus (SS)
OF - Bobby Abreu (OF)
OF - Aubry Huff (1B/OF)
OF - Matt Holliday (OF)
Utility - Alex Gordon (3B/OF)
DL - Corey Hart (OF)

SP - Cole Hamels (SP)
SP - Francisco Liriano (SP)
RP - Jonathan Papelbon (RP)
RP - Jose Valverde (RP)
P - Edwin Jackson (SP)
P - Jorge De La Rosa (SP)
P - Aroldis Chapman (RP)
Bench - Clayton Richards (SP)
Bench - Kevin Gregg (RP)
Bench - Phil Hughes (SP)
Bench - Bud Norris (SP)
Bench - Brad Penny (SP)
DL - Brad Lidge (RP)

My current Roster
C - Alex Avila (C)
1B - Joey Votto (1B)
2B - Dan Uggla (2B)
3B - Michael Young (3B/2B)
SS - Elvis Andrus (SS)
OF - Corey Hart (OF)
OF - Alex Gordon (3B/OF)
OF - Matt Holliday (OF)
Utility - Brett Gardner (OF)
Bench - Bobby Abreu (OF)
Bench - Astrubal Cabrera (SS)

SP - Cole Hamels (SP)
SP - Francisco Liriano (SP)
RP - Jonathan Papelbon (RP)
RP - Jose Valverde (RP)
P - Anibal Sanchez (SP)
P - Jorge De La Rosa (SP)
P - Travis Wood (SP)
Bench - Jake Arrieta (SP)
Bench - Tim Stauffer (SP)
Bench - Johnny Cueto (SP)
DL - Brad Lidge (RP)
DL - Phil Hughes (SP)

Regrets: I dropped Norris at the start of the season because he had a few iffy games (obviously he has been a buzz saw so far), and I turned down an Abreu for Bumgarner trade back when Bumgarner was a complete Bum. Now he's starting to come around. I'd also like to have drafted a better #1 SP. I'd definitely go Haren over Liriano if I could do it again. Also, I drafted Uggla in the 3rd round over Verlander. I'd do that one over again too.

Starting Keepers: Miguel Cabrera, Justin Upton, Tim Lincecum, Hanley Ramirez, Andrew McCutchen, Jason Heyward

Starting roster:

C Miguel Montero
1B Miguel Cabrera
2B Aaron Hill
3B Ian Stewart
SS Hanley Ramirez
OF Justin Upton
OF Andrew McCutchen
OF Jason Heyward
OF Grady Sizemore
UTIL Justin Morneau
Bench: David Freese, Mike Aviles, Tyler Colvin

SP: Tim Lincecum, Brett Anderson, Jaime Garcia, Madison Bumgarner, Jake Peavy, Javier Vazquez, Jair Jurrjens, James McDonald
RP: Neftali Feliz, Drew Storen, Jake McGee

I dropped Storen very early on, no idea why. I still kick myself for it. I've made a couple trades and lots of waiver activity. Ryan Zimmerman was dropped so I picked him up and stashed him. This is where I'm at currently...

C Miguel Montero
1B Miguel Cabrera
2B Robinson Cano
3B Chipper Jones
SS Hanley Ramirez
OF Andrew McCutchen
OF Jason Heyward
OF Jason Bay
OF Nick Swisher
UTIL 1B Justin Morneau
BN: 3B Ryan Zimmerman, OF Grady Sizemore, OF Domonic Brown, 2B/3B Chone Figgins, OF Michael Brantley

SP: Tim Lincecum, Brett Anderson, Madison Bumgarner, Bud Norris, Daniel Hudson, Johnny Cueto
RP: Neftali Feliz, Matt Capps, Sergio Santos

I'm looking to make moves for another top notch ace. Just waiting for the right time and opportunity to sell Morneau...I almost had Chipper and Sizemore shipped out for Hamels, but the timing on Sizemore's latest injury screwed that up. Overall I like where I'm at, but like usual in the fantasy season I have made a couple suspect moves that really would have my team looking good. I can't complain too much though.
