Help out with my rookie team please

Postby freon » Wed Jul 14, 2004 5:55 am

I started the season at the very bottom of the standings. Slowly I've made my way up to fifth. What areas do you think I should work on? Any glaring holes? Players I'm worried may have hit their wall are C. Wilson, P. Feliz, and L. Castillo. Any advice helpful. Thanks. Will rate your team if you want.

C C. Wilson (Pit - C,1B,LF,RF)
1B L. Overbay (Mil - 1B)
2B T. Wigginton (NYM - 2B,3B)
3B V. Castilla (Col - 3B)
SS M. Tejada (Bal - SS)
OF J. Drew (Atl - CF,RF)
OF J. Pierre (Fla - CF)
OF R. Winn (Sea - LF,CF)
Util C. Blake (Cle - 1B,3B)
BN M. Alou (ChC - LF)
BN L. Castillo (Fla - 2B)
BN P. Feliz (SF - 1B,3B,SS)

SP G. Maddux (ChC - SP)
SP M. Prior (ChC - SP)
RP D. Báez (TB - RP)
RP O. Dotel (Oak - RP)
P M. Koplove (Ari - RP)
P J. Lieber (NYY - SP)

Wigginton seems like a hole to me because the Mets will probably call up Wright soon. Your RP aren't that good either, Baez is underrated but Dotel is overrated and Koplove will have 0 chances. See if you can find anyone who still thinks Dotel can get it done. Why are Zambrano and Perez on your bench? They are two of your best starters? Unless when you made this the others had two starts?

I just barely picked up Wiggington over the break. He's been doing better than Castillo so I thought I'd give him a try. There aren't many good 2b men. Would you start Castillo over Wiggy?

And my pitchers were on the bench when I wrote the roster, But I move them around every day depending on who's starting. Zambrano is definitely my best pitcher.

Thanks for your input.

I would definitely go after some more pitching. It looks like Prior/Zambrano are your only two reliables. Also, are there any other closers in free agency?
