Honest Opinion, how's my team? WHIR

Postby Redlegs » Fri Mar 21, 2008 11:56 pm

Hi, I'm in a 10 team non keeper yahoo H2H 6x6 category league. Offensive: Avg., HR, RBI, Runs, SB, Lowest K's. Pitching: W, L, Sv, K's, ERA, Whip.

My Roster:
C- C.Ruiz
1B- P.Fielder
2B- C.Utley
3B- A.Ramirez
SS- O.Cabrera
OF- L.Berkman
OF- N.Markakis
OF- C.Hart
U- J. Dye
B- W.Taveras

SP- D.Haren
SP- R.Oswalt
RP- M.Capps
RP- J.Isringhausen
P- B.J.Ryan
P- B.Wilson
P- G.Sherrill
B- J.Maine
B- O.Perez
B- Z.Greinke
B- J.Accardo

Please let me know your opinion. My concerns about my team are its speed, which could use some improvement, the quality of the starting pitching and the fact that I have six closers (Accardo for as long as he is still getting save opportunities as Ryan heals, and then I have an open roster slot by replacing him when Ryan's well), most of which said closers aren't highly rated nor on good teams.

My first inclination is to try to package a closer with a position player to improve my team in that position, but then again my closers don't have the most value.

So have at it and please give me ideas to help imrove my team to win this thing.

Thanks in advance and whir.

i would rather start marketing your SPs since you have a lot of those as well. closers clearly collect less Ls, and typically...keep better pithcing ratios, so even though they only stat they get explicitly is SVs..they're more useful than many think.

and you're right about your speed. make this a priority. adding another 30+ would go a great deal and shouldnt really be too difficult to find imo

help me?

If I were you I would think about dealing Berkman and Sherrill (if he starts out hot) for a good speedster later on. Other than that, great power and average, good balance. I'm not too high on Oswalt, but Haren should be fine with Maine and maybe another SP would be nice over Brian Wilson.

Oh the joys of 10 team leagues.....LOL (please see mine, 14 team leaguer)

I like your lineup, looks pretty solid, infield is amazing.......having 6 RP, is too redundant, I would try to peddle off your best one, for a big time Starter to shore up your staff.....
