Postby loophole21 » Sat Mar 05, 2005 4:57 pm

12 team 5x5 h2h. i drafted 11th.

C I. Rodriguez (Det - C)
1B T. Helton (Col - 1B)
2B J. Uribe (CWS - 2B,3B,SS)
3B A. Boone (Cle - 3B)
SS M. Young (Tex - SS)
CI J. Morneau (Min - 1B)
MI M. Bellhorn (Bos - 2B,3B)
OF B. Bonds (SF - OF)
OF J. Damon (Bos - OF)
OF A. Rowand (CWS - OF)
OF E. Byrnes (Oak - OF)
OF R. Hidalgo (Tex - OF)
Util G. Jenkins (Mil - OF)
BN R. Baldelli (TB - OF)
BN B. Mueller (Bos - 2B,3B)

SP J. Peavy (SD - SP)
SP M. Mulder (StL - SP)
SP R. Halladay (Tor - SP)
SP J. Westbrook (Cle - SP)
RP J. Mesa (Pit - RP)
RP T. Gordon (NYY - RP)
P D. Davis (Mil - SP)
P J. Thomson (Atl - SP)
BN B. Lawrence (SD - SP)

Id say that my only glaring weakness is RP. There were two giant closer runs and i missed both. What do you think i can do to improve?

With so many hitters taken, I think that lineup isn't too bad. YOur weakness, as you said is RP. I would actually try to dump Mesa. There is no way you will win saves, so for for ERA and WHIP. IF guys like Mike Gonzalez, Juan Rincon or Yhency Brazazban are there, go for them. Your SP rotation is pretty good.

I need some thoughts on my team... ... p?t=100497

Nice, you got Helton and Bonds from the 11th pick and 13th pick I'm guessing. I like you batters and your pitchers aren't bad. Mesa should give you some saves but I still hate him (Phillies Fan). To improve you should think of starting Lawrence over Davis or another pitcher. Otherwise you offense is solid and I wouldn't start breaking up your team for a closer. Please Rate Mine.

i like your offense which is really strong for a 12 team league with so many guys starting. however Baldelli won't be ready for a while because of injury. bellhorn can be upgraded but he is serviceable. Agian you need another closer, and unless you can read dusty Bakers mind the easiest way to get one will be trading some depth.
