20 Team League... Inherited 19th Place Team as favour to owner
Salary Considerations. Salaries are set by league commissioner.
I am sitting at just around $195... I believe $240 is the cap. Wasn't an auction.
Thoughts on the team and/or where to go?
>> I'd like to get myself another reserve OF, but on top of that.
This will be daily league as well. Not my norm but branching out.

You need a 3rd Baseman. I'd take VMart over those other guys, $10 is not a bad price for him. Chris Davis at $8 is awesome. Try to trade for someone worth playing at 3rd Base and keep Moustakas as a UTIL/Bench Hitter.

Carpenter will be a 3B soon enough so I wouldn't worry about that. Hopefully Guerrero can step up and take over 2B for when that happens. Everything looks pretty good from what I can see. Not sure on how stacked other teams are compared to what you have. But I would be happy with that roster in a 20 man league. Could use another solid pitcher but you could always wait for Taillon to get up. Jansen at $9 seems like a steal for you.

From beginning, all I have left from original team is Davis, Masterson, and Perez. On top of these three, I had Bautista which I used to restock.

Feeling okay walking into season... Think I am already getting noticed as someone who is taking the team upwards. Being late to the party means I have missed some of the moves I could have taken to do more.

It's a start. Thanks for advice to date.

I actually love your team in a 20 team league. Very deep and great players at each position. I agree that Carp will be your third baseman of the future so don't worry too much about having Mous there for now. Hell, he might finally get it together this season anyway, who knows? Love your closers who should net you at least 90 saves or more this season. The only weakness I see is your OF. A bit week, but something is gonna be weak in a deep league. I would definitley use VMart at your Utility position. Great job.

Thanks for your help on mine

I agree with the others. Assuming Carpenter will be your 3B, the team looks solid, except I would maybe focus on the OF.

I definitely like your pitching staff for a 20 team league. Its very good. I like Victor Martinez as your Util. He should get back to where he was a few years ago. Your offense isn't the best but its not bad. I would maybe try to upgrade at 3rd base but overall its a very good team.

Could you help me with mine? viewtopic.php?t=468178

For a 20 team league, this is a good lineup. I like how you have a good mix of young arms and talent in the field. I especially like the talent in the back end of the bullpen. Hopefully some of the young guys like LeMahieu and Gennett could be key factors coming off your bench. And V-Mart for $10 is a very good find.

I'm on board with everyone.. I rarely see a 20-team this good. You couldn't ask for a more reliable staff with a solid number of them on the incline or playing with improved circumstances surrounding them. I'd actually want to keep up with this team and find out what happens with it.
