Rookie needs help

Post by gojays03 »

I'm in a 12-team 5x5 rotisserie league and it's the first time I've ever done it. I'd appreciate an evaluation of my team and any possible things I could do to improve it.

Nice offense with good mix of power and speed. And although Prior and Lawrence are a bit risky, I think they will realize their potential so your pitching is good too. Only suggestion I would make is to swap Rhodes or Moss for another starter.

Why would he swap Moss?? Moss will be starting in SF. Pac Bell Park is THE pitchers park in the MLB. I think he's fine. Only thing I think is a little risky is Urbina. I don't trust Texas pitching

I agree that your team looks solid. I have a lot of faith in Prior, and although Lawrence gives up a lot of HRs he's a real bulldog. Moss should be OK, but if he starts well I'd send him to someone who might overrate a hot start.

Keep an eye on Helton's status re: his back. A bad back can ruin a season in any sport, so if you could trade him for another good 1B (maybe Bagwell, who I feel will bust out again with Kent behind him) and upgrade another position (Urbina?) it might be something to consider...
