Opinions on my team? (Noob!)

Postby bluebledthesea » Mon Jun 09, 2008 1:35 pm

Hi everyone. I'm new to Fantasy Cafe and this is my first year playing fantasy baseball. I'm in an 18 team ESPN roto league and am currently ranked 7/18. I've been stuck in this spot since the beginning and I'd appreciate any opinions on my team, who you might try to move in a trade, or anyone to look out for in FA. Our league counts Runs, RBIs, OBP and SLG stats for batters, and Wins, Saves, ERA and WHIP for pitchers. Here's my team:

C Jason Varitek, Bos
1B Kevin Youkilis, Bos
2B Brian Roberts, Bal
3B Troy Glaus, StL
SS Jimmy Rollins, Phi
OF Grady Sizemore, Cle
OF Carlos Gomez, Min
OF Milton Bradley, Tex
UTIL, 2B Robinson Cano, NYY
Bench 3B Blake DeWitt, LAD
Bench 2B Alexei Ramirez, CWS

SP Ben Sheets, Mil
SP Ervin Santana, LAA
SP Bartolo Colon, Bos
SP Aaron Laffey, Cle
SP Gavin Floyd, CWS
RP Brandon Lyon, Ari
RP Heath Bell, SD
DL SP Fausto Carmona, Cle

Based on the roto scores, my team's biggest weaknesses have been in OBP and SLG as well as Saves. My second tier of weaknesses would be Runs, RBIs and WHIP. My ERA and Wins are toward the top of the league. My weakest position is probably Varitek at catcher, and Gomez and Cano have been killing my OBP/SLG. Lyon is also the only one getting me Saves. I tend to rotate people who get hot from FA in and out of my bench if I think they're going to give me stats on any particular night based on pitching match ups.

Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated! Thanks in advance. ;-)
