How Can I Improve (WHIR)?

Postby Santana4Cy » Thu May 08, 2008 5:48 pm

12 team, 5x5 roto league. I'm sitting in 2nd place right now, but I think there are areas where I can improve.

I recently traded away Miguel Cabrera, Ken Griffey Jr. and my 6th round pick in next year's draft (equivalent of a 10th rounder) for Carl Crawford and Russell Martin.

C: Russell Martin
1B: Mark Teixeira
2B: Jeff Kent
3B: Alex Gordon
SS: Jose Reyes
CI: Casey Kotchman
MI: Carlos Guillen
OF: Raul Ibanez
OF: Carl Crawford
OF: Matt Kemp
U: Ryan Church
U: Jim Thome
BN: Mark Ellis, Frank Thomas, Jason Varitek, Jose Guillen, Cameron Maybin

SP: Roy Halladay
SP: Jake Peavy
SP: Justin Verlander
RP: Mariano Rivera
RP: Joe Nathan
P: Scot Shields
P: Brian Wilson
P: Santiago Casilla
BN: Dustin McGowan, Shaun Marcum, Ryan Dempster, Carlos Silva, Chad Gaudin

First, Why do you need Varitek on your bench. Martin will be starting all year for you I assume. I would flat out drop Frank Thomas and take a flier on a potential breakout with trade potential.

I think maybin is a ways away from playing in the bigs so same with him, see Thomas comment.

The offense looks well rounded but you might want to consider a 2-1 deal and unload GOrdon once hot for a better option. I do not like te ups and downs.

Pitching looks very stout but is there a better DL option than Westbrook like Carpenter, Pedro, etc...

Gaudin can be dropped unless you count holds.
