What Now? WHIR!

Postby Vladiator » Wed Mar 26, 2008 9:48 pm

Team's in sig--drafted Sunday. Just traded Corey Hart and Josh Hamilton for V-Mart since the alternative was to go into the season with Salty or waiver wire chum as my catcher. Bourn was a free agent, so I snatched him up post-trade. I figure I'll move Braun to my OF and put Longoria at 3B when he comes back up, plus the trade also gets Fookie off my bench (he fell to the 9th round).

Basically, like everyone else, I'm asking for an analysis of my team and looking for criticism and/or solutions regarding its weak points.

And yes, I'm already aware that I could probably use 1-2 more decent starting pitchers...

You have SBs wrapped up and you'll be competitive in RBIs and Runs. Average might be a little weak with Young and Hafner. HR's could be alright, but you're relying on Young and Braun to duplicate lasts years numbers and Kemp to hit quite a few. That might be a small weakness.

Obviously, you need a couple more SPs, but you should be able to find them during the season. You have plenty of RPs, I might try to deal one or two of the lesser guys in a package deal, as they will only help in significantly in NSV and K/BB, plus will help marginally in ERA, WHIP and K.

Thanks for the help on mine.
