Dynasty Team Overhaul

Postby avswsop91 » Fri Jan 11, 2013 1:11 pm


So I took over a dynasty team a few years back, it was the worst team in the league at that time. I put a lot of work into the team to re-shape it and turn it around. How do you think I did and what more can I still do?

12 Team Dynasty, Head-to-Head Category League (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, Util, 7 P) (6x6 (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS & QS, W, SV, ERA, WHIP))

Roster at Start of 2012 Season:
C – Alex Avila
1B – Paul Konerko, Eric Hosmer, Kendrys Morales
2B – Ben Zobrist, Aaron Hill, Jemile Weeks
3B – Michael Young, Chase Headley
SS – Ian Desmond, Yunel Escobar
OF – Carlos Gonzalez, Adam Jones, Brett Gardner, Logan Morrison
SP – Gio Gonzalez, Brandon Morrow, Chad Billingsley, Daniel Hudson, Brett Anderson, Neftali Feliz, Jhoulys Chacin, Bud Norris, Luke Hochevar
RP – Huston Street, Jordon Walden, Brad Lidge

Roster at End of 2012 Season
C – Wilin Rosario, Travis d’Arnaud
1B – Eric Hosmer, Anthony Rizzo, Corey Hart
2B – Ben Zobrist
3B – Evan Longoria, Mike Olt
SS – Hanley Ramirez
OF – Jason Heyward, Jay Bruce, Curtis Granderson, Shane Victorino
SP – Cliff Lee, R.A. Dickey, Mat Latos, Brett Anderson, Jeff Samardzija, Jonathon Niese, James McDonald, Tyler Skaggs, Danny Hultzen, Zack Wheeler, Jake Odorizzi, Jacob Turner

Your team looks strong, but we should probably know the number of teams and scoring format.

Two thoughts though:

1. Hopefully at some point this year you will have a good trading chip in Rosario or D'Arnaud (I don't think this is a 2 catcher league).

2. If this is an AVG league, I think you will have a problem. Guys like Bruce and Granderson are going to hurt your AVG and the rest of your guys are mediocre AVG guys. I am not sure if there is even one guy you can count on to hit .300 this year.

Looks good. Good mix of current talent and potential. One suggestion is to target players with high walk rates, as you count OPS. I find that in any league that counts walks in any way, players with strong walk rates are under-appreciated and hence cheaper than they should be. My guess is that it's due to the fact that most of the rankings that people see, and get accustomed to, are based on 5X5. Any way, good job

Looking solid. I see you have a bunch of prospects ready to take over when Dickey+Lee step aside.
