Area's to Improve? WHIR

Postby Warrior24 » Fri Feb 24, 2012 8:54 pm

I am in a 12 team 12-18 flex keeper league that is in its 5th season. This past season my team won the championship after years of struggling.
I happen to have a lot more players than I am able to keep. I was wondering what positions you guys think I should try to upgrade.

C Matt Wieters
1B Michael Morse
2B Chase Utley
3B Adrian Beltre
SS Starlin Castro
IF Lance Berkman
LF Desmond Jennings
CF BJ Upton
RF Corey Hart
OF Jason Heyward
Util Billy Butler
Bench
Carlos Quentin
Mike Trout
Adam Lind

Pitching
Roy Halladay
Clayton Kershaw
Cole Hamels
James Shields
Madison Bumgarner
Matt Moore
Jonathon Papelbon
Grant Balfour
Jim Johnson

For a 12 team you look like you are in great shape. Very solid all around team that should be primed for another chase at the championship. That pitching has got to be one of if not the best in your league

Ya I would say my pitching is the best. There is another team though comes in a close second with Lincecum, king felix, david price, Jon Lester, Jordan Zimmerman, and Daniel Hudson. I just have a little more depth.

You've assembled a very impressive squad and like the other poster mentioned that pitching staff is ungodly. Between you and the other team's pitchers you posted there must be a huge drop off in quality of the remaining teams.

Am I reading your question correctly, you can keep up to 18 players before this year's draft but just want advice on positions to target as opposed to what players to keep? If I look at your team the glaring weakness for me is at RP, besides Papelbon you don't have a bona fide closer. Also I'd be a bit concerned at 2B and 3B those two players are injury risks. You can't expect those #'s again from Berkman either.

What I really like (besides your starting pitching) is the up and comers in OF - Trout, Jennings and Heyward. They should be lynch pins in your lineup for years to come. Also Castro at SS is nice, even with a crappy hitting lineup.

I'd look to find options at 2B as Utley will be very risky this year. I heard that his best years are over. Hopefully not.
Dwight Schrute: Michael, you forgot to mention the herpes.
Michael Scott: It didn't come out organically.

Your pitching is really impressive. I'd look to improve your 2B, IF positions and maybe try to add another closer if saves are a category.

Any help is appreciated.
