Final Look (WHIR)

Postby VitiumCloud » Thu Jun 02, 2011 11:04 pm

So, I just did a few more trades, and I have what I believe to be the final look of my team... I don't really want to trade anymore, but I welcome any arguments for why I should...

It's a nine team, 6 x 6 roto league; .avg, .ops, steals, hr, runs & rbi + wins, k, holds, saves, whip, era. 108 points possible, I'm in first place with 98.5 points.

Catcher - Victor Martinez
First - Ryan Howard
Second - Dustin Pedroia
Third - Alex Gordon
SS - Alexi Ramirez
OF - Carlos Gonzalez
OF - Jay Bruce
OF - Curtis Granderson
Util - Mike Stanton
Util - Matt Joyce
Bench - Grady Sizemore, Eric Hosmer, Adam Jones


SP - Clayton Kershaw, Justin Verlander, Jamie Garcia, Anibal Sanchez, Mat Latos, Bud Norris
RP - Aaron Crow, JJ Putz, Mariano Rivera, Matt Caps, Johnny Venters
DL - Jonathan Broxton, Brandon Lyon, Liriano


EDIT: I PICKED UP AYBAR FOR HIS STEALS
I have an open roster spot, so I could pick up another pitcher while Liriano is on the DL, but I don't think it is worth using a move since I'm already gonna be over the innings pitched cap...

Also, would you rather use a roster spot for Logan Morrison or Eric Hosmer if this were your team?

Nice looking roster. I'd definitely go Hosmer over Lo-Mo.

I'd be tempted to pick-up another SP, even if you don't use him on this scoring period due to your IP, because I don't trust Latos or Liriano and it'd be nice to have a little depth there.

If it were my team, I'd grab Hosmer and try to trade Howard.

dittos on the Liriano. my dear old grand-dad told me on his death bed, never trust a junkie, and don't use that fransisco liriano in 2011. no matter what!! he may get another no-no. he may get cy-young stats after his return, but do NOT use him. he'll steal your wallet and leave you naked at a denny's somewhere.

That team is darn near a work of art. Stand pat. only move I see is that you may want to find one more closer, given the volatility of that position.

You want Hosmer over Logan Morrison.

Yeah, I pretty much agree with what's been said. Team looks solid. No need to make any moves unless someone makes you an offer you can't refuse.

I think Hosmer has been catergorized as a "must own", and I also like Morrison over Aybar.


Help with mine please
