How about this one? Not so sure about it... WHIR

Postby mzkp54 » Tue Mar 20, 2012 12:05 am

12 teams, 6X6 roto, added K's for batters and HR's for pitchers.

C- Ramos
1b- Freeman
2b- Kinsler
3b- Zimmerman
SS- Tulo
2b/ss- Kelly Johnson
1b/3b- Gaby Sanchez
OF- Stanton
OF- Werth
OF- C Young
OF- Hunter
U- Espinosa
Bench: Trumbo, Carp, Wells
SP- Greinke, Wilson, Wainwright, Latos, Pineda, G Gonzalez, Marcum, Jurrjens,
RP- Adams, Salas, Broxton

Was pretty drunk pretty early in this draft and totally forgot to draft closers... Also not sure I'm loving this team. Pretty much a ton of high risk high reward guys I think. What do you all think?

Thanks for the help with my team.

I like Gaby Sanchez at CI. You don't have a stud 1B but the rest of your IF is really good.

Broxton may be a closer in KC, depending on Soria's injury. Adams might get some saves too. And somebody will pop up on waivers, especially if you watch the wire like a hawk. Might want to offer SP for closer. Gio Gonzalez might get a decent return. Personally I'm not as high on him this year as most people are.

Yeah I picked up Broxton today and at the end of the draft just got the set up guys for some shaky closers. But I know closers come and go.

I think Freeman is gonna be a good 1B and Sanchez is not too shabby, Too many 2B which could help get a better power bat at the UTIL slot (preferabley OF since you have Hunter and no so stellar cst on the bench, unless Trumbo can really take to 3B). I agree with moving a starter for a Closer Gio scares me with his high WHIP but I think Pineda is a better trade tool due to the spotlight being on him (Hasn't been all too great in ST, hs lost velocity and came to camp overweight, not a good sign at Yankee stadium), even if this is a keeper league you still have 4 keeper quality pitchers other than those 2

help with mine?

One guy drafted a ton of closers: Kimbrel, Storen, Betancourt, Valverde, Nathan. You think any good options there to trade Gio or Pineda for?

Kimbrel and Storen are young and would have a higher price tag if I owned them. Valverde is due for a letdown. I think Betancourt will be awesome this year. He's who I'd go after.

Agree with this. I targeted Betancourt in my league because he's got big upside and isn't being valued very highly.

He wants Wainwright at least for a closer which I'm not interested in, looking around if anyone's interested- nothing so far

Team is Very solid all around. Nice Balance. I love the infield. If you can get anything out of Werth this year your outfield has the potential to be pretty good.

I like trumbo a whole lot on the bench. He will put up nice power numbers when needed.

The pitching looks solid on paper, but i do worry a bit as there is some high risk high reward. Don't get me wrong your staff has the potential to be very, very good, but guys like Grienke, Pineda, and Jurjens worry me with some inconsistency. That being said it is a very solid unit and if they put numbers they're capable of- watch out.

As for closers, i don't place nearly as much importance on them as some others, i look at it more as a numbers game. as long as they have the job, you should be just fine. But I'm not sure Broxton is going to get the bulk of the save opps so I would look into that.

I think your starting pitching is good. I think Pineda is a sell-high kind of player. Poor second half last year and apparently showed up to camp overweight. I would try to trade him now for a closer. I understand the concerns about 1B but I think between Freeman, Gaby and Trumbo, at least one of them will do enough for you.

Let me know what you think about my team http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=441894
