12 team 5x5 H2H. WHIR!

Postby Bushroot » Mon Mar 24, 2008 9:31 pm

I picked first and am fairly satisfied with the results, I'm really only worried about not having enough steals. As soon as Zumaya goes on the DL I'll pick up someone else, any suggestions on who would be a good choice?

C - J.R. Towles
1B - Travis Hafner
2B - Brandon Phillips
3B - Alex Rodriguez
SS - Carlos Guillen
OF - Vladimir Guerrero
OF - Hideki Matsui
OF - Shane Victorino
Util - Jermaine Dye
BN - Billy Butler

SP - Scott Kazmir
SP - Rich Hill
RP - Francisco Rodriguez
RP - Matt Capps
P - Joakim Soria
P - Jeremy Bonderman
p - Tom Gorzelanny
BN - Matt Garza
BN - Ian Kennedy
BN - Gil Meche
BN - Joel Zumaya

Your offense is definitely solid. Solid enough that I think you would be able to trade one of your starting OF, then slide Dye in and put Butler in as UTIL. I think Butler will hit .300 with 90 ribbies at least, so having him in there won't cause a drop in production. The front end of your rotation has a lot of upside, but Kazmir and Hill are guaranteed successes. Kazmir should be fine, but Im not a Rich Hill fan. You should try and get some more depth, not sure if Garza, Kennedy, or Meche are the best replacements. You have decent speed, but maybe trading Victorino wouldn't be the smartest move if you need SBs.

help if you can:

I would say you could use another solid SP. Besides Kazmir and Hill, all your other SP have questions. Ex/ Will Gorzelanny and Meche get any run support? Will Ian Kennedy perform even with all the run support he gets?

Seems like a very well rounded team. I agree that you likely could use another SP but I wouldnt make any trades just yet. I expect Butler to outperform Dye.

I also do not care for your starting pitchers, I have been burned by Kazmir's injuries in the past and am still bitter. I do like Rich Hill though, I think if you spot start along the year you will be fine as your hitting will carry you.
