Need to upgrade OF's from the WW. WHIR 100%

Postby footballisbetter.com » Sat Mar 24, 2012 7:05 pm

Below is my team in a 12 team h2h 5x5 league. I know I am weak in the OF.
Catcher B Posey 1
Catcher W Ramos 6
1B A Gonzalez 36
3B Lawrie 1
CI E Hosmer 10
2B Kinsler 39
SS Andrus 28
MI Peralta 5
OF Ichiro 16
OF Jennings 19
OF Swisher 5
OF Kubel 3
Utility A Dunn 6

Pitcher Luebke 1
Pitcher J Lester 24
Pitcher D Hudson 21
Pitcher Garza 20
Pitcher J Garcia 13
Pitcher Holland 6
Pitcher Marmol 9
Pitcher F Francisco 11
Pitcher Jim Johnson 5

Bench Kurodo 3
Bench Encarnacion 3
Bench Dempster 3

Using J35J's projections, here are my averages for all of my hitters:
AB AVG HR RBI Runs SB
551.9 0.278 19.76 80.53 85.84 13.92

Here are the FA's. Should I add any, and if so..who is the drop?
J Francour, J Willingham, Carlos Lee, Thames, JD Martinze, De Aza, Abreau, V Wells, Maybury, Reimold

UPDATE- I am going to try to land Marshall and drop Kuroda. If I get him, should I drop either Encarnacion or Dunn for an OF?

Martinez or Willingham. Drop Kuroda.

I would be more worried about your Util spot. Dunn is awful and your only offensive backup is not very good for a mixed league.

I also have E Encarnacion I could plug in.

FYI, I was also thinking about dropping Kuroda for S Marshall.

Grab Marshall! Run. Don't walk. Marshall is much improved reliever and is fully capable of saving 30+ w an ERA under 3 and a higher than 1K/IP. He will grab closers job by the testes and won't let go like Madson did for Phillies last year.

This is an auction league and our WW is also a blind auction. So I have to bid on all free agents (and pay real money into the WW pool), and stay under my $300 salary cap (not easy).

I also have to pay 1/2 of the salary of all players I drop.

But I could drop Kuroda and maybe Encarnacion to attempt to get Marshall and an OF.

You should pick up Marshall and drop Kuroda.



Thanks for the help with mine.

Ok, assuming I might be able to get Marshall for Kuroda...should I drop anyone else to pick up one of those OF's from the WW?

I'd pick up Franceuor and drop Kurodo. Even if last yr was fluky, still a guy who is in a line up that should continue to improve this season and has 20-20 ability.
