Is this Good Enough to WIN?!

Postby VWells4Prez » Mon Aug 30, 2004 9:53 am

This is an eight team league. But other than that, everything else is standard yahoo! league rules except for a 40 min. innings pitch and a category in OBP.

So far I'm 5 games up on the second place team. I just want to know if I have what it takes for the final drive.

C J. Posada (NYY - C)
1B M. Teixeira (Tex - 1B,3B)
2B M. Giles (Atl - 2B)
3B M. Cabrera (Fla - 3B,LF,RF)
SS N. Garciaparra (ChC - SS)
OF V. Guerrero (Ana - RF)
OF B. Abreu (Phi - RF)
OF C. Beltrán (Hou - CF)
Util J. Pierre (Fla - CF)
Util C. Patterson (ChC - CF)
Util B. Upton (TB - SS,DH)
DL T. Glaus (Ana - 3B)

SP J. Beckett (Fla - SP)
SP C. Zambrano (ChC - SP)
SP J. Schmidt (SF - SP)
RP O. Dotel (Oak - RP)
RP J. Isringhausen (StL - RP)
RP L. Hawkins (ChC - RP)
P D. Kolb (Mil - RP)
P B. Lidge (Hou - RP)
P J. Mesa (Pit - RP)
BN C. Sabathia (Cle - SP)
BN R. Oswalt (Hou - SP)
BN M. Prior (ChC - SP)
DL J. BorowskiDL (ChC - RP)

This team was drafted two weeks before the season started and though I made a couple of deals. Its mostly stayed the same.

1. I traded J. Santana (before Santana turned it up unfortunately) + A. Ramirez for N. Garciaparra (two weeks b4 his return) + F. Garcia (Seattle Garcia b4 deal)
2. Then I packaged Nathan + Garcia (during his hot streak) for Schmidt + Mesa
3. Dropped C. Wilson (had him from his day one high's to his recent lows) to pick up Glaus, put him on DL, then got Upton.

I'm wondering who should keep my final roster spot. Upton, Glaus or give Wilson another chance? I'm thinking Glaus, but that's just me. And does anybody know the extent of Beltran's injury??! He had a MONSTER week last week that gave me a strong 9-2 win over the former 4th seed team.

The only team I'm really concerned about is here.
C J. Varitek (Bos - C)
1B A. Dunn (Cin - 1B,LF)
2B A. Soriano (Tex - 2B)
3B H. Blalock (Tex - 3B)
SS M. Young (Tex - 2B,SS)
OF L. Berkman (Hou - LF,RF)
OF B. Bonds (SF - LF)
OF C. Lee (CWS - LF)
Util S. Rolen (StL - 3B)
Util M. Alou (ChC - LF)
Util S. Casey (Cin - 1B)
DL P. BurrellDL (Phi - LF)

SP J. Vázquez (NYY - SP)
SP B. Sheets (Mil - SP)
SP M. Mulder (Oak - SP)
RP J. Smoltz (Atl - RP)
RP D. GravesDL (Cin - SP,RP)
RP --empty--
P C. Carpenter (StL - SP)
P O. Pérez (Pit - SP)
P A. Burnett (Fla - SP)
BN T. Glavine (NYM - SP)
BN K. Brown (NYY - SP)
BN R. Harden (Oak - SP)
BN O. Pérez (LA - SP)
DL B. WagnerDL (Phi - RP)
DL J. ValverdeDL (Ari - RP)

With his offense being a good majority Rangers off., are the Rangers gonna turn it up again? or will the recent struggles continue. I know this is a long post, but I just want a good idea of how this league is gonna go down. Thanx for bearing with me.

Who else is on the WW? I think you can do better than Upton at your Util spot.

Craig Biggio, Bellhorn, Cameron, Winn are all decent guys, but I picked up Upton for his BA and OBP.
The big question is, do I drop Upton for Glaus?

Not if you are looking for help in BA.

The WW seems awfully shallow for an 8 team league.
