Head to Head, 5x5-- Weaknesses?

Postby Doc » Tue Apr 15, 2003 10:14 am

I'm in a head to head 5x5 league. It's only eight teams so all teams are pretty good.

What do you think my weaknesses are? I'm thinking first base (Ibanez has been tearing it up, but I don't expect that to last... and Konerko is average) and possibly closer ... (considering Benitez's blowup).

Some ideas floating in my head...

Trade Chipper and Konerko for Helton and Jacque Jones
Drop Looper for Kline/Borowski

Advice, thoughts? I'd really appreciate it.

C Kendall, Jason (C-Pit)
1B Ibanez, Raul (1B, LF, DH, RF-KC)
2B Kent, Jeff (2B-Hou)
3B Rolen, Scott (3B-StL)
SS Rodriguez, Alex (SS-Tex)
OF Jones, Andruw (CF-Atl)
OF Abreu, Bobby (RF, CF-Phi)
OF Encarnacion, Juan (RF, CF-Fla)
Util Furcal, Rafael (SS-Atl)
Bench Jones, Chipper (LF-Atl)
Bench Hunter, Torii (CF-Min)
Bench Konerko, Paul (1B-CWS)


SP Padilla, Vicente (SP-Phi)
SP Washburn, Jarrod (SP-Ana)

P Looper, Braden (RP-Fla)
P Oswalt, Roy (SP-Hou)

I'd make that trade. Helton is a monster.
If your looking for your weakness look no further than your SP. In an 8 team league Oswalt is your only above avg starter. Maddux will recover but at this point in his career won't be spectacular and he never did get a lot of K's. Miller could be great but right now he is injury risk. Washburn just isn't that good and has already been hurt this year. Padilla and Leiter are bottom of the rotation in a 12 team league.
