Solid Keepers and Extra Picks - Please Rate WHIR

Postby slomojo » Wed Mar 25, 2015 12:00 pm

I'm in a keeper league that allows draft pick trading. Since I was out of it last year I was able to trade and get extra 1st and 2nd Round Picks this season.

5x5 roto league with R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP x W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

10 teams

Here is my roster. Don't love Sandoval but pretty much using him as a stopgap until Kris Bryant plays. Worried about lack of speed on my team. Keepers are in bold.

C R. Martin
1B D. Ortiz
2B R. Cano
3B P. Sandoval
SS H. Ramirez
OF B. Harper
OF G. Springer
OF C. Gonzalez
U J. Votto

SP S. Strasburg
SP J. Cueto
SP J. Samardzija
SP G. Richards
RP C. Kimbrel
RP F. Rodney
P F. Rodriguez
P A. Miller

BN G. Gonzalez
BN D. Smyly
BN J. Odorizzi
BN S. Choo
BN B. McCann
BN K. Bryant
BN J. Fernandez

I like it. I think the pitching is pretty strong, and Martin is a nice play at catcher in an OBP league. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long to plug Bryant into the lineup.

Yeah, that's a really solid team top to bottom. Miller may win that closer job in NY, Jose Fernandez could provide some nice production in the second half, McCann is really underrated if Martin can't duplicate last year's production, Ortiz is still going strong, and April 17th should be a given on Bryant. I wouldn't worry about your speed. There aren't any burners there but other than C/1B you don't have any really slow guys either (once Bryant is up). Also, Votto is really incredibly good in an OBP format. Despite the down-year I'm really surprised you got him with a draft pick.

Awesome well balanced team. I really like it. I'd be surprised if you weren't the favorite (or a favorite) to win it all. Nicely done.
