Help me solidify my team...next move Myers?

Postby TruYankeeFan » Wed Mar 14, 2012 7:22 am

Hey guys.

I had the 10th pick in the draft....And I swear on my life I had no intention of drafting so many yanks...but I got them late in most cases...so could not resist.

Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL

Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Runs Batted In (RBI), Total Bases (TB), On-base Percentage (OBP), Net Stolen Bases (NSB)

Pitchers Stat Categories: Innings Pitched (IP), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

Here are the moves I have made so far...

I got a legit closer trading Yadier Molina and Tyler Clippard for John Axford and Russell Martin. I also Dropped Daniel Murphy for Alfonso Soriano.

Roster:
C- Mike Napoli
1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Rickie Weeks
SS - Derek Jeter
3B - Arod
OF - Brett Gardner
OF - Melky Cabrera
OF - Peter Bourjols
UT - Yoenis Cespedes
BN - Carl Crawford
BN - Russell Martin
BN - Bryce Harper
BN - Kelly Johnson
BN - Alsfonso Soriano

SP - Clayton Kershaw
SP - Cole Hamels
RP - Brandon League
RP - John Axford
P - James Shields
P - Chris Carpenter
P - Ivan Nova
P - Phil Hughes

Brett Myers is a FA...who do I drop to pick him up?

Post FA OF and SP also. If that is the only closer available I'd switch Martin with him or KJ. No need for 2 catchers.

I might also consider dropping Soriano after you just picked him up, though your team could use some more power even if it's declining power. I agree that dropping Russell Martin is probably the best way to go since his numbers aren't likely to ever find their way into your lineup without an injury.

Hughes might not even get the 5th spot in NYY.
Even if he does, 5th SP get skipped a lot.

I would grab Floyd as well. Drop Martin and Soriano.

Yeah...you could be right....BUT...I have followed Hughes his whole career...and the news lately is he looks to be back in 2010 form. The word from camp is the #5 starter spot is rigged in his favor....and if his return to for holds true...he will not only be a starter...he will not be a #5 for long.

Adding Myers will help your depth as you will start 3 solid closers and give oyu one SP off the bench. I think I'd rather have Yunel to Jeter. None of the FA SP are really worth gambling on right now unless you do some 2 for 1 deals and free up a spot. For OF I like Lorenzo Cain to give you some cheap speed.

Dropped Martin for Myers.

Based on past...my scoring favors Pagan over many of the FA...and the scoring system and projections seem pretty high on this kid JD MArtinez in Houston.

Should I drop Soriano for Pagan?

And maybe drop Bryce Harper who is looking less and less like he will make the Big league roster....for JD MArtinez...who is already slotted into a starting spot in the OF...and expected to be an immediate impact bat?

Or pick up Escobar and one of those guys instead?
