Underachieving Fantasy Teams 2006

Postby zechs » Mon May 08, 2006 3:08 pm

If you're an ACTIVE owner and can't figure out why your team is not performing to your expectations, then this is the thread for you. Maybe others can point out a weakness(es) to your team that you may not have spotted otherwise.

I'd prefer that you post your team IF your team is in the bottom 3 (from 3rd worst to worst) of your league.

I'll start with my team in my own league that's in last place at the time of this posting.

12-team 5x5 H2H league
rank: 12 of 12
1 DL spot

C- McCann, D. Miller
1B- Shelton
2B- Figgins
3B- Tracy

CF- Sizemore
RF- Gomes

Util- Ellis
BN- Baldelli (DL)
DL- Alou

Youre short on power, no? Ellis is stinking it up. Consider release? Dont expect Shelton to hit 50 HR. I think it will be in the 20's. Good job on getiing Peralta. He's good. Buehrle on the bench? Not a good idea. Looks like youre going with a "Closer" approach but in a 5 x 5 that is a risky strategy.

I'm gonna blame your outfield. With the exception of Gomes in April, Crawford and Sizemore have fallen completely short of expectations. Your infield seems solid, though I believe Peralta has not done much yet (correct?). I would say your glaring weakness would be the lack of an Ace. Smoltz is very good and Schmidt could be very good, but neither is a true shut-down, strike out pitcher. Your bullpen is phenomenal, and maybe you could move a closer along with a position player to snag yourself a top tier pitcher. Obviously, this is a huge maybe. While I'm at it, I may throw my own team up here. I'm currently in second to last, and every week I somehow blow it. Damn, I thought I had a good team. Please find flaws and propose solutions.

10 team H2H, (R,HR,RBI,SB,OBP,FPCT) and (K,SV,W,ERA,WHIP)

C- J. Willingham
1B - D. Ortiz, R. Howard
2B - C. Figgins
3B - E. Chavez, A. Beltre, G. Atkins
SS - M. Tejada, J. Lugo
OF - T. Hunter, J. Edmonds, A. Huff

SP - B. Sheets, C.C. Sabathia, J. Lackey, J. Bonderman, K. Escobar, N. Lowry, D. Cabrera
RP - B. Lidge, J. Nathan, M. Gonzalez

Not enough power. You lack a BIG bat. The OF is weak if you ask me.
