Building a Powerhouse?? WHIR

Postby JJGBPD » Thu May 17, 2012 9:05 am

So, I'm in a 10 team head 5x5 head to head keep 3 league. I've made 6 trades so far this season, and the following is my current roster. Normally, I'm looking to make the next move, but other than another bench bat to back up 2B-3B-SS, should I sit for a while?

1B - Teixeira
2B - Kinsler
3B - Beltre
SS - Tulowitzki
OF - Cargo
OF - Choo
OF - Trout
UT - Freeman
UT - Melky
BN - B. Harper

P - Kershaw
P - Verlander
P - Strasburg
P - Haren
P - CJ Wilson
P - Hellickson
P - Worley
P - Samardzija
P - Smyly
DL - D. Hudson
RP - Putz
RP - Hanrahan
RP - Rodney
DL - Storen

Thanks!!

Thats a great team especially in a keeper league. You can make so many moves in the offseason to better prepare yourself for next year its not even funny. Being a keeper league and how well Trout has been playing the only move I would consider would be to try and trade him. Package him and another bat to hopefully add another sure fire keeper on your team for more ammo next year!

My Question:

My league is a 12 team 4 keeper league. I have made 6 moves this year to upgrade my team. H2H league 6x6 league normal stats with OPS and Quality Starts included. Should we be looking to make another move or stand pat. (P.S. we are punting saves)

Your offense is very strong and yes, an infield backup would help, IMO. I'm just not sure who that could be. Without a look at your wire, I doubt anyone would be better than any of your "worst" players.

Your pitching is amazing, so I am tempted to say sit and wait for the next big thing, but in a 10 team that depends on the wire. I don't think CJ Wilson is legit, personally... I don't have much to back that up with, but I never saw him as anything more than a #2-#3 starter.

Having Storen gives you good saves leverage going forward, so other than Hellickson and Worley, your pitching is surefire solid.
