Postby sdcafe » Tue Mar 27, 2012 8:55 am

Hey guys,

This is for an 8 team yahoo ROTO team. Both AL/NL. Standard 5x5 catagories.

I wasn't paying attention to the draft this year and i barely changed my rankings in time for the draft. Here is the result:
1. (3) Matt Kemp (LAD - OF)
2. (14) Jacoby Ellsbury (Bos - OF)
3. (19) Prince Fielder (Det - 1B)
4. (30) Adrián Béltre (Tex - 3B)
5. (35) David Wright (NYM - 3B)
6. (46) Carlos Santana (Cle - C,1B)
7. (51) Jay Bruce (Cin - OF)
8. (62) Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B)
9. (67) Jon Lester (Bos - SP)
10. (78) Brian Wilson (SF - RP)
11. (83) José Valverde (Det - RP)
12. (94) Joel Hanrahan (Pit - RP)
13. (99) Jordan Walden (LAA - RP)
14. (110) Alexei Ramírez (CWS - SS)
15. (115) Ricky Romero (Tor - SP)
16. (126) Brandon Morrow (Tor - SP)
17. (131) Ichiro Suzuki (Sea - OF)
18. (142) Kyle Farnsworth (TB - RP)
19. (147) Frank Francisco (NYM - RP)
20. (158) David Ortiz (Bos - Util)
21. (163) Dustin Ackley (Sea - 2B)

It's not all bad......but way too much RP......
I would pick up Aybar and Morales for sure, as well as Sherzer (or Fister) and Holland.
Drop Farnsworth and Francisco........
even a guy like Bourjos will get you a lot more SB.....Utley is fragile and hurt.
Melky Cabrera isn't bad either for more power.

thanks!

Here is what I had in mind:

Waiver 1 - Mar 29: Derek Holland dropping Dustin Ackley
Waiver 2 - Mar 29: Max Scherzer dropping Frank Francisco
Waiver 3 - Mar 29: Kendrys Morales dropping Kyle Farnsworth

Should I drop Jay Bruce instead of Fansworth? I was thinking of dropping Jay Bruce instead if Fansworth since I'd have Morales as a starter and I could keep Fansworth around until I found another starter to pick up. I can start 5 RPs in my league (2 RPs and 3 Ps).

Don't drop Jay Bruce!!! He is one of your best OF's......

Your other waiver moves look good as you mentioned.

You could try trading Brian Wilson and Hanrahan.....both are suspect and grab a better 2b or SS.

Since you can "start" 5 rp's......start three RP's and two mid relievers like Venters and Robertson to keep your era and whip low.
