Rate my Team! Big Trade Debate Also. WHIR!

Postby Rabid58 » Mon Mar 19, 2012 4:14 pm

Okay i am in a 10 team Head to Head league. I'm newer to fantasy and am hoping i did pretty well but who knows!

My scoring goes as so:

Lineup lock time:

Each week you must set your starting lineup. For each player on your roster, you will have until five (5) minutes prior to the start of each player's first MLB game being played each week to place each player into your starting lineup for that week.

Point Scoring System:

Your players will score points for you each game based on the following formula:

Hitters

Single = 1
Double = 2
Triple = 3
Home Run = 4
Run = 1
RBI = 1
Walk = 1
Stolen Base = 2
Caught Stealing = -1

Pitching Staffs

Win = 3

Strikeouts
0-5 = 0
6-7 = 1
8-9 = 2
10-12 = 3
13-15 = 5
16-19 = 7
20+ = 10
Earned Runs Allowed
0 = 7
1 = 5
2 = 3
3 = 2
4 = 1
5+ = 0
Hits + Walks allowed
0 = 20
1 =16
2 = 12
3-4= 8
5-7 = 4
8-10 = 2
11-12 = 1
13+ = 0

My Team:

Round Player
1 Jacoby Ellsbury (OF, U, BOS)
2 Adrian Gonzalez (1B, U, BOS)
3 Josh Hamilton (OF, U, TEX)
4 Starlin Castro (SS, U, CHC)
5 Pablo Sandoval (3B, U, SF)
6 Buster Posey (C, U, SF)
7 Michael Bourn (OF, U, ATL)
8 Atlanta Braves (P, ATL)
9 Colby Rasmus (OF, U, TOR)
10 Jason Kipnis (2B, U, CLE)
11 Ike Davis (1B, U, NYM)
12 Nick Markakis (OF, U, BAL)
13 Jhonny Peralta (SS, U, DET)
14 Mike Moustakas (3B, U, KC)
15 Logan Morrison (OF, U, MIA)
16 Gaby Sanchez (1B, U, MIA)

I didn't want to do Pitching Staff but the league commissioner wanted it and so i couldn't do anything about it. I know i'm weak at second base but otherwise i feel pretty well about everything! Are there any obvious holes you see or things i should change? Who should i have fill my utility slot?

The trade I am debating on accepting is, I give Buster Posey for Carlos Santana. It's really a toss up to me and i'd much rather go with the consistent hitting of Posey but i don't like that he just came off a huge injury. The upside of Santana is his power. I'm not sure if it's worth it and would like some input!

I am also number 1 on the waiver so are there any players you would drop and pick someone else up? Carlos Beltran, Carlos Lee, Emilio Bonifacio, Matt Joyce, Seth Smith, Dexter Fowler, Juan Pierre, Bobby Abreu, Raul Ibanez, Yunel Escobar, Ian Desmond, Chipper Jones, Omar Infante, and Carlos Quentin to name a few i could pick up.

I appreciate the input in advance and i will be willing to help you guys out in return!

Thanks much,

I would not have drafted the guys you did early, but overall I like your team just fine. I especially like that you were able to get the Braves staff as a whole as I think they will do very well this year.

Some specifics:
I like Markakis a lot in this format as he should rack up a lot of hits.
I would drop Morrison for Beltran immediately. Beltran should out-perform Morrison handily over the season.
I would drop Sanchez for Bonafacio as well. Ike Davis is a fine replacement 1B, no need for another. Bonafacio is a nice util guy to plug in for speed,a nd he qualifies at 2B.
Your Util spot will probably be filled by Bourn/Beltran, depending upon their match-ups for the week.
I would trade Posey for Santana given that Posey is still recovering from the injury.

Bourn or Beltran at Util? My 3 starting OF as of now are Ellsbury, Hamilton, and Bourn. And also Bonafacio does not have 2B eligibility in my league. (3B, SS, OF) And yes Posey is coming off of an injury but he's been playing and has almost recovered fully.

I haven't played in a points league like this before, but after looking over the scoring it seems like you have a pretty solid team. I think I would take Santana over Posey. I'd pick up Beltran as well.

Thanks for the help with mine!

I tried grabbing both Bonifacio and Beltran but i was only able to get Bonifacio. I looked this morning and someone had dropped Ben Zobrist. He's on waivers and i'm hoping i get him but who knows! That would fill my hole at 2B.
