Did I Improve My Team?

Postby Yanks_Baby » Sun May 11, 2008 7:10 pm

12 Team Roto Yahoo! League

Before
Batters
C: Geovany Soto (C)
1B: Justin Morneau (1B)
2B: Chase Utley (2B)
3B: Adrian Beltre (3B)
SS: Edgar Renteria (SS)
OF: Carlos Beltran (OF), Carlos Gomez (OF), Jermaine Dye (OF)
Util: Travis Hafner (1B), Mark Teixeira (1B)
BN: Brad Hawpe (OF), Howie Kendrick (2B)
DL: Alfonso Soriano (OF)

Pitchers
SP: Jonathan Sanchez (SP,RP), Aaron Harang (SP)
RP: Jason Isringhausen (RP), Brian Fuentes (RP)
P: John Maine (SP), John Lannan (SP)
BN: Ian Snell (SP), Fausto Carmona (SP), John Danks (SP)
DL: John Smoltz (SP)



After
Batters
C: Geovany Soto (C)
1B: Justin Morneau (1B)
2B: Robinson Cano (2B)
3B: Adrian Beltre (3B)
SS: Edgar Renteria (SS)
OF: Brad Hawpe (OF), Alfonso Soriano (OF), Carlos Beltran (OF)
Util: Ryan Howard (1B), Matt Kemp (OF)
BN: Carlos Gomez (OF)
DL: Howie Kendrick (2B)

Pitchers
SP: Josh Beckett (SP), John Danks (SP)
RP: Jason Isringhausen (RP), Brian Fuentes (RP)
P: Oliver Perez (SP), Chad Billingsley (SP,RP)
BN: Ted Lilly (SP), Aaron Harang (SP), John Maine (SP), Justin Verlander (SP)
DL: John Smoltz (SP)

I know, I know. Izzy is a weak spot. But Smoltz will be off the DL soonish, and I think Izzy wioll get his job back too soon for me to drop him.

What do you guys think? Did I improve my team??

Cano is always a slow starter, and although his BA is down (the smallest worry there is for robby, as that's always his strong suit later in the season) his poweri s up, so I think we may finally see 100 25 100 robby we've all been banking on for years.

I turned 2 aces into 4 aces, I ditcvhed Hafner (Halleukah!!!!!! Thank god he's gone) and ended up with Howard in his stead. Got some much neeeded speed in Kemp. I'm in first, and I think these moves secured it.

It is a lot of changes and hard to dissect everything that's going on.
At first glance, I don't see a huge difference.

It's great to get Howard, but Utley's huge to give up.Tex should be a monster in the second half, like usual.

I think your SP has improved though.

Thanks for your help with mine... more info added

Should I drop anyone on my current team for Cueto? It's a redraft league, keep in mind.

I don't like Oliver Perez, since it seems you never know what you're going to get, but if it's a redraft, I'd say stick with what you have. I think Cueto will have his struggles as well.

I just dropped Gomez for Jay Bruce, traded Ted Lilly for Kerry Wood, and dropped Izzy for Johnny Cueto. So the only hole I see is SS.

Pretty good IMO.

Huge improvement. I think Cano will eventually find his stroke. Once he does look out. Once Smoltz comes off the DL your RP will serve you well also. For a 12 team league you will be tough to beat. Please help me out
