5x5 10-team league, weak in pitching/catching

Postby CalvinBall166 » Sat Mar 17, 2012 6:04 pm

5x5, no IP limit.

C Devin Mesoraco
C Chris Ianetta
1B Mark Teixeira
2B Brandon Phillips
SS Hanley Ramirez
3B Alex Rodriguez
MI Dustin Ackley
CI Mike Moustakas
OF Ryan Braun
OF Matt Holliday
OF Desmond Jennings
OF Nick Markakis
OF Colby Rasmus
UT Mark Reynolds

BN Bryce Harper
BN Mike Trout

(9 pitcher spots, normally all but three will be filled with my relievers)
SP Cole Hamels
SP Matt Cain
SP Chris Carpenter
SP Ubaldo Jimenez
SP Anibal Sanchez
SP Jhoulis Chacin
SP Tim Hudson
RP Mariano Rivera
RP Joe Nathan
RP Chris Perez
RP Matt Thornton
RP Addison Reed
RP Johnny Venters

I'm not very happy at all with my starting pitching, and obviously my catching situation blows. And as always with my teams, there's a boatload of injury risk. And I really only have 1 shutdown closer, but I never bother with drafting all solid closers,it's so easy to get saves throughout the year. I am planning on targeting someone like Russell Martin/Jesus Montero and Ricky Romero - who should I trade? Or have I mis-analyzed my team's situation and should bolster some other aspect?

Id go after Montero if its possible. Your pitching isnt that bad either. Thornton and Reed im sure u got good value on those picks. Id be worried more about your offense. Alot of age there. If you can pull off a trade,,,maybe try and package something for a catcher and a decent multi-position guy. Michael young/Bonificio type guy. It would take a big trade but it would do alot.

Your SP could be better but it's decent. Catching is a problem but I think you have a lot of depth at OF and 3B that you could use to improve your catching. I would make the best trade you can for a Catcher involving one of your OF other than Braun. Any of them should get you an upgrade over what you have. Alternatively, you could move either Moustakas or Reynolds assuming they both have 3B eligibility, or cross your fingers for Bryce Harper.

Let me know your thoughts on mine. Thanks. http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=441894
