The Sweeny Plan

Postby SLBarnes » Mon Aug 08, 2011 12:18 pm

I'm sure most of you Gurus have heard of this, but if not, its when you punt RBI's and HR's and have exemplary pitching, you'd draft pitching and batters that dominate SB, AVG, and R's.

My team was going nowhere in my league so a couple months back I decided to trade for a team that would set myself up good for next season. We get 7 keepers, 1 has to be a pitcher, and 1 has to be a rookie.

MY Keepers: Kemp, HanRam, Ellsbury, Gardner, Lincecum, Halladay and either Jennings or Chisenhall.

I am thinking this is ok heading into next season, i know my pitching is fine. I am worried about Ellsbury, Kemp and HanRam.

Ellsbury is on fire as is Kemp, the former is injury prone, and the latter i don't trust.

ANnd Hanram is having a shitty year.

Should I make any moves or stay put?

WHIR. (trade deadline is less than a week away)

I wouldn't be worried at all with Ellsbury, Hanley, and Kemp as keepers. That's a fantastic trio, combining speed and power. I don't know how comfortable I am with Gardner as one of your keepers, however, so may look to make a move to upgrade there. And I'd keep Jennings over Chisenhall.

No way I would be worried about Ellsbury. He had freak injuries last year. He could easily be the No. 1 OF going into next year. Ramirez has just had a year where he's off with an injury, track record there, same with Kemp...... Don't second guess those guys. You should LOVE going into next year with them.

Thanks for the reassurance guys! I want to upgrade Gardner, but i'm not sure who to go after. I want Crawford, I feel he is a potential buy low candidate but ppl will still over price. I could offer the owner Lincecum/Halladay and other thigns for Cliff Lee and Carl Crawford... but i love the Halladay/Lincecum 1 2 punch.
