Yahoo Autodraft Team

Postby SweetLou311 » Tue Mar 16, 2004 12:14 pm

This is a 12 team H2H Yahoo 5X5 league. I re ranked my list before the draft and made one trade. Here is my original team:

C: Jason Phillips
1B: Mark Teixeira
2B: Alfonso Soriano
SS: Jose Reyes
3B: Eric Chavez
OF: Vernon Wells
OF: Magglio Ordonez
OF: Lance Berkman
Util: Mike Lowell
Bench: Morgan Ensberg
Bench: Carl Crawford
Bench: Pat Burrell

SP: Johan Santana
SP: Carlos Zambrano
RP: Danny Kolb
RP: Arthur Rhodes
P: Wade Miller
P: Derek Lowe
P: Brett Myers
Bench: Jeff Weaver
Bench: Aquilino Lopez
Bench: Jerome Williams

I then made a trade where I gave up Eric Chavez and Lance Berkman to get Vladimir Guerrero. So now my outfield is unbelievable and I still have Lowell as my third baseman. I'll probably use Crawford as my utility guy at the start of the season for some stolen bases. I think my offense is going to be unstoppable. I should win all five offensive categories every week.

What do you guys think?

your offense is great...but you need more pitching, it is the weakest spot on your team right now. i would trade ensberg or lowell or ensberg or crawford for a better starter.

I think there is a good chance you can beat your opponent each week, but winning every offensive cat might be a stretch.

(actually, once you plug Vlad in... ;-D )

Your offense is really solid, though, with a nice bench. Your pitching is decent, but not amazing.

I'd work on your pitching now.

Your team is really solid. You should probably look to get another closer or to upgrade your current closers. Ensberg will be great. I'd deal Lowell (will get more in return) and one of your SPs for a top closer along the lines of a Foulke, Wagner or Smoltz. Other than that your outfield is great, your infield is very good and your pitching staff is average. You may want to look to improve your SPs as well, although I really like Santana, Zambrano, Miller--all are very solid #2 or #3 pitchers. Good luck.
