12 Team 5x5 H2H (POST LINK WHIR) 1st Draft

Postby Nighttrain » Sat Mar 10, 2012 12:58 pm

Standard 12 team 5x5 H2H League. How's the team look?

C- Matt Weiters
1B- Adrian Gonzalez
2B- Ian Kinsler
SS- Marco Scutaro
3B- Brett Lawrie
OF- Josh Hamilton
OF- Brennan Boesch
OF- Cameron Maybin
UT- Mark Renyolds
Bench: Adam Dunn, Alex Presley, Yonder Alonzo

SP: Yovanni Gallardo, Madison Bumgarner, James Shileds, Jeremy Helickson, Johan Santana, Francisco Liriano, Daniel Bard
RP: Ryan Madson, Sergio Santos, Brandon League, Javy Guerra

If Santana, Liriano, and Dunn perform anywhere near what the can, this league is in trouble. I got them so late that if they blow I can drop them and still have a good team.

Great hitting, I like the chances you took on closers. The starting rotation has definite potential to blow up and be really good but without a front line ace pay attention to the waiver wire and rotate your last 3-4 starters as the year shapes up

Not bad. You have punted BA with Renyolds and Maybin. I would be worried about Hellickson and more so Liriano. If you can trade Hellickson, I would do it. I had him last year and of course he did well. Last year his K rate was low and did not support his whip and his BHIP% was way to lucky.

Nice job. If one wants to be picky, I was also eyeing Liriano and Reynolds.... if the deal came, I would expore, but there is lots of season.

Nice starting position thanks for your help.

I'd be ready to pull the trigger pretty quick on Dunn, Santana, and Liriano. I'm all for taking late risks in the draft (all three have the potential to be high reward for what you likely paid), but don't get attached. Especially if Reynolds starts the year like he did last year, you don't want to be stuck with too much dead weight dragging you down.

Keep an eye on the waiver wire for those guys who emerge in April/May.

The only real weakness I would see is BA. I think in a 12 team league your pitching will be fine Gallardo, Bumgarner and Shields should pitch well enough most weeks to keep you very competitive.

I would also not be married to Dunn, Santana or Liriano. If they start off hot look to move them, if they start off slow, don't hesitate to cut them. Individually, I think they all have the chance to bounce back, especially Santana, but I don't want to own all three on my team.

Hey man.

I am still new to Fantasy Baseball. Been playing football for years...but took the leap this year. So I hope my comments help.

Looks like a solid team with HUGE upside. If even half your gambles pay off...you could beat your competitions head in most weeks with those bats.

Would love some input on my draft...
