Can this team win in the playoffs?

Postby The Maestro » Tue Sep 06, 2005 3:15 pm

I'm currently the 4th seed in a 12 team league, in the first round of the playoffs. The trading deadline is past, and here's my team:

C - J. Lopez (Bal - C)
1B - N. Johnson (Was - 1B)
2B - J. Kent (LAD - 1B,2B)
3B - F. López (Cin - 2B,3B,SS)
SS - M. Tejada (Bal - SS)
OF - G. Jenkins (Mil - OF)
OF - W. Taveras (Hou - OF)
OF - M. Alou (SF - OF)
Util - J. Burnitz (ChC - OF)
Util - J. Francoeur (Atl - OF)
BN - B. Giles (SD - OF)
BN - J. Jones (Min - OF)

SP - Pedro, R. Harden, K. Millwood, E. Bedard, E. Loaiza, J. Patterson, Z. Duke
RP - Hermanson, Rivera, Guardado

Nick Johnson might be hurt again. Should I drop him for Erstad, Gibbons, or Tracy? Any other suggestions?

You're going to need some hot hitters to win it.

I would definitely drop Johnson and pick up Gibbons. He's been hot. I agree with the other poster. You're going to need some hot hitting. You have good hitters but they're kinda streaky. If they're in a hitting streak you should be fine but if they start to slump it might be time to worry.
