Hows my team looking?

Postby Our Haus » Mon Mar 30, 2009 11:54 am

hey guys

standard 10 team 5x5 Y! league except for OBP instead of AVG

C-Russ Martin
1b- D. Lee
2b- Howie Kendrick
ss- Hanley Ramirez
3b- Aramis Ramirez
of- C. Beltran
of- BJ Upton
of- Jermaine Dye
U- Corey Hart
U- Ryan Zimmerman
bench- S.S. Choo, Matt Wieters, Jose Lopez, Elijah Dukes

SP- Hamels, Lester, Josh Johnson, Kevin Slowey, Chris Young
RP- Marmol, Heath Bell, B. Morrow, Anthony Reyes

I think I have plenty of speed but worry about my power numbers. I also think my RP an upgrade until Marmol (inevitably) is named closer.

Thoughts? Thanks

You probably could use one more big bat, you should target first base because its so deep and there's so much power there. Shop Martin along with Lee and try to grab a Fielder-type first baseman. Martin is a great catcher but if you think about the production you would get from someone like Pierzynski or even Navarro, you aren't losing much at the position. People think the drop off from the top tier catchers to the rest is so big but there's only a difference of about 5 hrs, maybe 15 rbis, and depending on the catcher, 0-20 points off the avg. People overvalue the top catchers so much, you could definitely bundle Martin with someone else and steal some more power. Then pick up a catcher from the WW. Your team looks pretty good as is too.
