3-time Champ..can I make it 4-for-4?

Postby nsulham » Sun Mar 05, 2006 11:23 am

10 team, 6x6 (extra cats are hits and walks), H2H. We start 5 SP and 2 RP.

C: Jorge Posada
1B: Derrek Lee
2B: Jeff Kent
SS: Jimmy Rollins
3B: Alex Rodriguez
OF: Carlos Beltran
OF. Andruw Jones
OF: Barry Bonds
Util.: Melvin Mora
Bench: Jeremy Hermida, J.D. Drew, Edgar Renteria, Mike Lowell

SP: Chris Carpenter
SP: Ben Sheets
SP: John Smoltz
SP: Dan Haren
SP: Scott Kazmir
RP: Joe Nathan
RP: B.J. Ryan
Bench: Matt Cain, Ryan Madson, Chien-Ming Wang, Jae Seo, Brian Fuentes

I'm pleased with my offense. If anything I may drop Lowell and pick up Mike Sweeney or Mike Barrett. I got Bonds in the 10th round (technically 14th since we kept 3) so I'm ecstatic about that if he can stay healthy.

My pitching is what concerns me a bit. I'm not really sold on Haren and Kazmir as my 4/5 guys but I guess it could be a lot worse. I'm also a bit worried about Smoltz possibly breaking down and having to rely on the youngsters.

Amazing: Four for four it is. time for you to change leaques, and join a more competitive leaque. That is a complement by the wayjavascript:emoticon(';-D')

Umm yea, good team. I'm not big on Ryan Madson, but if you think he has value, go ahead and keep him. If you're worried about pitching, you could try trading a Kent or More for some pitching. Other than that, you're golden.

Yeah, you win. Kazmir and Haren are excellent 4/5 starters as they both provide a lot of Ks with decent pitching. They aren't aces, but you really have nothing to worry about with them. Your relief is terrific, your entire infield and outfield is great....The only thing I could possibly tell you to look at would be insurance for Jeff Kent. Maybe pick up a biggio to ride the bench.....maybe a Mark Ellis. Plenty of speed and secondary speed....I think your set. If I had to move somone, it would also be Ryan Madson.
