Do you have any suprising teams?

Postby Baseballer02 » Mon Jun 28, 2004 11:13 pm

Just wondering how many folks here have teams that may have looked great, but are in the bottom of the standings, or have a team that looked horrible, but is in the top. I have a team that is currently in first place, even with Wells, Chavez, and Hudson on the DL, and Young on the DL before that. Just check this out, and help me figure out how my team is in 1st place(by 10 points at that).

C-Craig Wilson
1b-Sean Casey
2b-Mark Loretta
3b-Dmirtri Young
Ss-Alex Rodriguez
Of-Juan Pierre
Of-Carl Crawford
Of-Hideki Matsui
Util-Paul Konerko
Bench-Geoff Jenkins
Bench-Vernon Wells(DL)
DL-Eric Chavez(DL)

Sp-C.C. Sabathia
Sp-Woody Williams
Rp-Jason Isringhausen
Rp-Francisco Cordero
P-Danny Graves
P-Matt Herges
P-Jason Frasor
Bench-Mark Mulder
Bench-Brandon Webb
Bench-Tim Hudson(DL)

Finally - my type of thread. My team looked great in March but is about to fall into last and has really been slipping as of late:

C - Varitek
1B - C. Wilson/Hafner
2B - Soriano
3B - Hillenbrand/Burroughs
SS - Renteria/Crosby
LF - Pujols/Holliday
CF - Burnitz/Baldelli
RF - Maggs/Millar
SP - Mulder/Oswalt/J.Williams/Webb/Lieber/Myers/Greinke
MR - Gordon/Worrell/Takatsu (still eligible)
CL - Smoltz/Looper/Urbina

You are in 1st place b/c of : Wilson, Casey, A-Rod, Crawford, Konerko, Sabathia, Graves and Cordero all having career years and Mulder is pitching great. You also have a lot of depth and a solid all-around team.

Guy is destroying our 14-team H2H league by 15 games despite trading Mulder early and riding out Sosa's DL stint.
Though he has some good hitters (led by ARod and VMart on a nifty FA pickup), his middle infield is BRoberts and CGuillen ... who saw that coming before the season?

Most mystifying is his staff, which, with Huddy on the DL, has not a single identifiable ace. He's rolling us with Radke, JWilliams, Jason Johnson and a few more nifty FA pickups, like Oliver Perez and Eaton.

Oh, yeah, and Graves. That's another thing everyone saw coming in March, right?
