Hort's Heavy Hitters

Postby bigh0rt » Sat May 13, 2006 1:26 pm

So the injury bug has struck me, and I'm limping on. Below are my league settings, format, as well as my roster, and some current WW players. Am I missing something here? Maybe somebody will see an opportunity that I am not... thanks.

10 Team Mixed H2H
Standard 5x5 + .OPS, TB, H, K/9, K/BB, HLD

C - V. Martinez
1B - A. Pujols
2B - T. Iguchi
3B - E. Chavez
SS - R. Furcal
MI - J. Lugo
CI - E. Encarnacion
OF - L. Berkman
OF - M. Holliday
OF - J. Edmonds
OF - A. Huff
Util - T. Hafner
Util - K. Youkilis
DL - H. Matsui
DL - I. Kinsler
DL - J. Hermida
DL - R. Baldelli

SP - J. Santana
SP - R. Oswalt
SP - K. Escobar
SP - S. Kazmir
SP - D. Davis
RP - B. Lidge
RP - H. Street
RP - B. Fuentes
P - K. Farnsworth
P - J. Zumaya
P - R. Soriano
DL - B. Sheets

Waiver Wire:
J. Morneau
C. Monroe
D. Uggla
X. Nady
B. Inge
Lu. Gonzalez
R. Zimmerman
J. Lopez
P. Feliz
C. Barmes
R. Freel
J. Gathright
K. Lofton
R. Cedeno

T. Saito
J. Koronka
T. Wakefield
N. Robertson
A. Rhodes (holds)
J. Table (holds)
K. Calero (holds)
R. King (holds)
A. Burgos
F. Cordero
A. Wainright

So, what do you think?? The reason for the depth on the wire is because of the no bench... I dropped Freel a week ago because I just couldn't have a guy who plays half the time, and half of that time doesn't contribute... the reason you see a lot of guys here who normally wouldn't be in standard 10-teamers.

What do I have to offer out, if anything? What should I be looking for, in your opinions? I'm not going to leave mine, as I want a fresh view, to see how it compares to my own. ;-D

I don't think there's much I'd do. A lot of speedsters, but since it's H2H and you count OPS and TB, they seem rather worthless to me. The only suggestion I have would be to sell high on Holliday. I don't see any major needs, so I'd just aim for value.

Your team still seems fine even with all the injuries, but one guy I would keep my eye on is Morneau. He has been swinging a good bat the last week or so, and may be going on a little mini tear that could definitely help your power numbers. He has hit over 400 in his last 6 games with good power as well. He might be a good add right now over somebody like Youkilis.

Considering who you've got left and how deep the league is I can't imagine you're really hurting at all. 8-o You might see what you can get for Holliday like Ped said, but I think the time to really cash in on him has probably passed. The only guys on your DL that have contributed in any meaningful way that I can see is Matsui, so I don't think you're really in too bad a shape at all at this point given who you've got in your OF ... maybe not. :-?

Yeah h0rt, like the other guys have said....I don't think it's time to hit the panic button. You have a nice balanced team with quite a bit of depth. Just limp along til your boys get back.
