1.) Did I blow it picking up Vladdy? Will he retire? Whats his deal? Do I hold onto him? 2.) Chris Carpenter; I know he is hurt but was it smart to grab him? I figured he will come back fine, but any idea when he does come back? 3.) I'm going to list some FA/Waiver options that may be better than Ian Desmond, Danny Espinosa, Vladdy, or Rasmus, as I'm not too confident in my Util/Bench players. 4.) Also anything on Trumbo? Had no idea whether to snag em, but did. 5.) So my main question is where can I improve my team?
FA/Waiver options: Delmon Young (OF) ; Austin Jackson (OF) ; Mitch Moreland (1B,OF) ; Justin Morneau (1B) (Any I may be missing or is a sleeper that is worth keeping for a little? [b]Guys thanks so much! Best of luck to everyone this year! I will help in return just leave a link![/b]
Batting: C: J.P. Arencibia 1B: Joey Votto 2B: Rickie Weeks 3B: Alex Rodriguez SS: Asdrubal Cabrera OF: Matt Kemp ; B.J. Upton ; Mark Trumbo Util: Colby Rasmus Util: Danny Espinosa BN: Vladdy Guerrero (Util) BN: Ian Desmond (SS)
Pitching: SP: Tim Lincecum ; SP: C.C. Sabathia ; RP: Brian Wilson ; RP: Kyle Farnsworth ; P: Josh Beckett ; P: Max Scherzer ; P: Shaun Marcum ; P: Chris Carpenter ; BN: Edwin Jackson ; BN: John Danks ; BN Matt Capps
I don't know about Guerrero, but there's no harm in waiting a week or so to see what you do with him. Right now he is homeless, but he's still a good player, so I wouldn't be surprised if someone in the MLB picks him up.
I took Carpenter too, I think he'll be back before may and be be a good mid tier pitcher.
Also what's with the catching situation? Catchers are pretty deep this year, haven't seen anyone take Arencibia, but then again you're in a points league so maybe his terrible AVG doesn't matter as much.
Not too worried about my catcher as I had Arencibia last year and he didn't do too bad. The other catchers available are: Kurt Suzuki ; Chris Iannetta ; A.J. Pierzynski ; Carlos Ruiz (These are the ones that stick out, and dont look worth it)
I am really leaning on grabbing Austin Jackson for either Danny Espinosa or Ian Desmond, but not sure if thats the right move yet at least.....
Other than that though, is my team a playoff caliber team? Any more suggestions? Thanks ya'll!
