H2H playoffs are on the way, how's my team looking?

Postby money » Thu Aug 25, 2005 12:56 pm

This team is an 8 team Yahoo Head to Head money league. We use default scoring. Right now I am in first place with a 14.5 game lead. I am winning my game this week 8-0. From 1-10, how would you rate my team going into the playoffs, and what do you think about my chances of winning?

C: Victor Martinez
1B: Mark Teixeria
2B: Jose Reyes
SS: Rafael Furcal
3B: Jorge Cantu
OF: Bobby Abreu
OF: Carl Crawford
OF: Lance Berkman
Util: Andruw Jones
bench: Brian Giles
bench: Melvin Mora

SP: Johan Santana
SP: Brett Myers
RP: Chad Cordero
RP: Guardado
P: Baez
P: Curt Schilling
P: Roger Clemens

bench: Zach Duke, Schmidt, Felix Hernandez
DL- Oliver Perez

I did have Rolen stashed away on my DL since I think 3B is my weakest position. But, since he is going to have season ending surgery, I dropped him for Cantu.

Ill do it by position and overall

C- 10/10 Martinez is in a good young lineup and is on a hot streak
1B- 9/10 Tiexiera, like Martinez is the center of a good young lineup and is a hr machine at times
2B- 9/10 Reyes would be a 10 if you didnt already have steals from crawford,furcal and abreu
SS- 7.5/10-- Furcal isnt valuable for ure team b/c u already hasve enough steals.
3B- 6/10- Mora would be higher if he wasnt in such a bad slump
OF- 9.5/10- Berkman is the weakness in you rfour top outfielders.
SP- 10/10 Santana and Clemens are arguably the top 2 sp in the game.
RP- 8/10- Cordero is solid, Baez is on a hot team,and guardado is
a consistent closer.

Overall 9.5/10, every team has a weakness. Try trading cantu and furcal to a team that needs speed.

i think it's quite a good team.

you're right that your 3B position is a weak point. i would guess in a small league like an 8 teamer cantu's lack of production for a 3B is especially pronounced.

i also think your starting pitching could possibly be a weak point as well. you got great consistent starters in johan and roger, but myers could possibly - and schilling probably definitely - mess up a playoff week. felix is a great starter like johan and roger, but i think he could have a blow up any start now.

overall though, good team. i don't say spectacular only because some of the other teams also probably have great lineups like that too in an 8 team league.

Looks like you're in pretty strong shape, Money. ;-D You've dominated the other teams in the regular season, and are still going strong now (with a big weekly win going on now). I don't see that you need to do much of anything. Unless you foresee a playoff opponent with significantly more starting pitching than you have (which I doubt), in which case you MIGHT want to try to package several good-but expendable players for one more stud SP.

But I think you'll likely win your money league.

Good luck.
