How's my team lookin? *WHIR*

Postby Dave8603 » Mon Apr 08, 2013 11:58 am

Rate my team! I've also included a short list of available FAs I'm considering picking up and I'd love some thoughts on that too. Leave your link in your comment. WHIR!

10-team Yahoo! H2H mixed league
Hitting Cats: H/AB, R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS
Pitching Cats: IP, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, QS

C - Salvador Perez
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Ian Kinsler
3B - Will Middlebrooks
SS - Ben Zobrist
OF - Shin-Soo Choo
OF - Josh Willingham
OF - Nelson Cruz
UTIL - Nick Markakis
UTIL - Lance Berkman
DL - Aramis Ramirez

SP - Felix Hernandez
SP - Adam Wainwright
RP - Joe Nathan
RP - Jim Henderson
P - Chris Sale
P - Mitchell Boggs
P - Kyuji Fujikawa
P - R.A. Dickey
BN - Josh Johnson
BN - Jeremy Hellickson
BN - Dillon Gee
BN - Clay Buchholz
BN - Jose Fernandez

-John Buck
-JP Arencibia
-Mark Reynolds
-Barry Zito
-Michael Cuddyer
-Matt Carpenter

I'm not crazy about Salvador Perez and I'm considering swapping him for Buck until d'Arnaud gets the call on the Mets or Arencibia. I think my outfield is kind of weak, but there isn't much out there on the WW. Axford has been miserable, so thinking of dropping him for Herrera, but this league isn't super-competitive so I think I have a few days on that one.

Would love any/all suggestions. Like I said, leave me a link to your post and I'll help out. Thanks!

Thanks for the help. Manny Ramirez on the DL was a mistake (copied and pasted last season's roster). I ended up dropping Straily because I don't think anyone else will snag him and dropped Axford. I picked up Clay Buchholz and Jim Henderson.

Your outfield is weak, but I love Choo. He's solid.

I don't like any of those WW options; if that's it, you should stay put.

Don't drop Salvador Perez. He's one of 10 catchers I would start everyday this year. He'll heat up. Big talent.

I think Dickey will be just fine.

You're loaded at pitching but have a rather weak OF. Try to pick up some SB's in the OF and you're set. Really nice team.

I agree. OF is the only real weakness I see, but I like the team as a whole. OF is generally an easier spot to fix due to the depth

Pretty solid team. Like everyone said try to upgrade that outfield. Also I'd be that guy to roll the dice and drop Dillon Gee for Barry Zito and see how he does in the team.

I like your team a lot overall. Your SP looks great (Love Sale this year) but there are a few question marks. First of all, I would nab Carpenter immediately, he will be 2b eligible in a week and even with Kinsler he's a nice piece to have. Think of him as insurance for Berk as you most likely wont get more than 400 abs out of him even though he is a DH. I'd drop Gee. Zobrist is great, Willingham and Cruz are wildcards. I think MIddlebrooks will be avg, but Aramis is a nice 3b when healthy. Good luck..

theres not much that needs to be said that hasnt been said already, although i do have to have to disagree with one of the comments about your waiver wire targets matt carpenter has been extremely hot hitting the ball all over the place. although hes not going to hit for a high number of home runs nor give u anything in terms of steals, he offers player positional flexibility which i value a lot when i go into drafting specially considering he can be put at any position excluding ss and c and hell hit for a high avg, give you runs and on base percentage stats.. thats pretty handy.
your outfield as was stated in previous comments could use a bigger bat maybe you can inquire via trade? idk Also stated i would advise against dropping salvador perez, the kid is due for a big year hence i drafted him high in my league round 10 / 11 i believe? anyways hope ive helped some
