Two Team Race. Who will win? WHIR

Postby got2bdab » Thu Apr 23, 2009 5:12 pm

I'm in a 10 team, H2H, 5x5, weekly transaction league. I am in first place, and think I have a pretty dominant team, but there is one team that might give me a run for my money.

I'm going to list both teams, and if you could tell me which team you think is stronger and why, it will help me decide if I should try to improve my team with a trade and where. Thanks, WHIR.

Team #1:

C - Sandoval
1B - A. Gonzalez
2B - Kinsler
SS - Furcal
3B - D. Wright
OF - Beltran
OF - Kemp
OF- Ethier
Util - R. Howard
Util - Hafner
Bn - Hawpe
Bn - Werth

SP - Nolasco
SP - Kazmir
SP - Greinke
RP - Valverde
RP - Capps
P - Lindstrom
P - R Johnson
P - Bedard
Bn - D Price
Bn - T Hanson
Bn - S. Baker

Team #2:

C - Inge
1B - Berkan
2B - Pedroia
SS - M. Young
3B - Huff
OF - Sizemore
OF - Manny
OF - C. Lee
Util - Magglio
Util - Hudson
Bn - D. Lee
Bn - Pierzynski
Bn - Weeks

SP - Halladay
SP - Harden
SP - Cain
RP - Mariano
RP - Qualls
P - Lowe
P - Floyd
P - Percival
Bn - Franklin
Bn - Masterson
DL - Dice K

First off, thanks for looking at my team, my dude.

It looks like a strong, strong offense, especially when aRAH comes back. He's going to replace Hafner at UTIL, right? You have a surplus of outfielders - Hawpe and Werth are solid OFs and are kind of extra on your team. Pablo Sandoval at C and Furcal at SS in a 10-team league could be improved on, in my opinion. I might try to upgrade over at least one of them.

The pitching looks solid with good depth, but unspectacular. You don't have an top-tier ace, which you probably went for intentionally. It looks like you went for offense in your draft, then netted a whole bunch of #2/3 guys in later rounds. Randy Johnson's age scares me, but the NL West could be kind to him.

Overall, a nicely assembled team with a potentially formidable offense when A-Rod comes back. You could upgrade at C, SS, or with a top-10 pitcher. Actually, for now, I'd start Hawpe over Hafner at UTIL.

As for Team #2... starting Inge and Orlando Hudson is pretty lol to me. He has a great outfield, terrible bench. I think he has better pitching. Halladay/Harden/Cain/Lowe/a returning Daisuke is much more dangerous than Kazmir/Greinke/Nolasco/Bedard. Although I don't know what he's doing with Masterson as a Daisuke replacement, he's in the Sox bullpen normally for a reason.

So, you have a better offense, he has better pitching. You have better trade chips for upgrading with your OF glut and your pitching depth, however.

I cant see Inge having a roster spot on any 10 team league, offense on team 1 is better except catcher since Sandoval hasnt done anything, maybe look to move Hawpe for another Catcher. Team 2 pitching is definately more solid in SP/RP

help with mine?
