Any Weaknesses? WHIR

Postby chargerss24 » Sat Jan 18, 2014 10:36 pm

I'm in a 12-team 6x6 roto (standard stat + Holds/OBP) keeper league. One thing that stands out to me is a slight lack of power. Here's my team:

C - J. Lucroy, R. Doumit
1B - P. Fielder
2B - D. Pedroia
SS - J. Reyes
3B - E. Longoria
MI - B. Dozier
CI - E. Encarnacion
OF - J. Heyward, D. Jennings, J. Ellsbury
U - W. Myers, J. Mourneau, A. Rendon

SP - J. Fernandez, Z. Greinke, M. Moore, D. Price, S. Miller
RP - J. Nathan, J. Grilli, D. Farquar, M. Melancon

Bench - C. Lee, Z. Wheeler, J. Crain, S. Doolittle, J. Walden, B. Belt, N. Franklin
Minors - B. Buxton, M. Appel

How does the team look? Think I'm a little light on power. I do have some trade bait as we need to eliminate any bench players before the season begins. Any advice? WHIR as always! ;-D

Is that Cliff Lee, if so I would keep him and try to deal a price for a heavy hitting MI....

Your position of strength is clearly starting pitching. Wow.

I don't think power is as bad as you think - Fielder, Encarncacion, Longoria, Myers and Heyward are all decent sources of power. Reyes even has some pop at SS. I don't like your MI Dozier to me lacks plate discipline which is cause for concern. I'd feel better if it was an Aaron Hill or Jed Lowrie type.

That is Cliff Lee.

Maybe try to het a kipnis type guy....see if the owner is short on pitching and deal him one of yours for the kip...
But other than that it's a pretty strong team you got there. Goodluck

I don't think you have too much of an issue in the power department as you have probably 4-5 guys that will finish in the top 15 in HR's. I agree with trying to trade Cliff Lee for an upgrade at MI though.

I think Morneau is going to pleasantly surprise you with his power in Colorado!

You've got plenty of power here, I wouldn't go trading for more power right now. I agree with others that your weakest link is probably Dozier but you can move Rendon to your MI spot and plug in Belt at the U.
