Speed or Pitching?

Postby West Texas Wolf » Sun Jan 23, 2005 11:15 am

I am in the 12th Round of a H2H League draft. Here is my team with projected stats:

C
1B Sean Casey 0.305 94 22 95 1
2B Marcus Giles 0.305 90 17 80 22
SS Nomar Garciaparra 0.310 88 18 86 7
3B
OF Lance Berkman 0.301 61 21 64 3
OF Manny Ramirez 0.315 103 38 123 1
OF Steve Finley 0.282 90 31 102 6
MI
CI Shawn Green 0.276 95 30 95 5
U
U
W SV SO ERA WHIP
SP Roy Oswalt 19 0 190 3.45 1.25
SP Mark Mulder 18 0 140 3.72 1.33
SP Chris Carpenter 13 0 143 3.83 1.21
SP
RP Joe Nathan 2 40 80 2.25 1
RP Shingo Takatsu 2 30 60 2.47 1.027

Question is this: I know I need speed and Brian Roberts (2B - BAL) is available (use in MI slot) or do I go with Andy Pettitte who is still available but probably won't by the time it gets back to me. I figure Andy will win more games now that he will be the #3 pitcher in the lineup.

You should look at hitting/speed... I'm pretty sure Berkman is gonna miss sometime at the start of the season...(recovering from surgery) Anyone?

There are a ton of sleeper SP's available...(imho) go with Hitting/Speed... ;-D

I would grab Brian Roberts

I would go for the speed also, and then with your next pick grab maddux. Maddux doesnt help with K's, but 15 wins are in the bag, and he will help your whip. Don
Your opponents perception of a player is just as important as your ranking of said player learn your opponents perceptions.
