An englishman needs you help

Postby Guest » Fri Mar 07, 2003 6:46 am

Hello to all my transatlantic cousins. I need your help, your opinions, your suggestions. I am new to this fascinating game of fantasy baseball as I'm sure the results of my first live draft shall bear testament. I'm in a h2h league using the following scoring cats:



I drafted the following team in this keeper league at the following prices with the "restriction" of a very generous cap of 340 (although there are minors to come):

C Santiago 3
C Alomar ?
1B Olerud 17
2B Vidro 19
3B Chavez 25
SS Eckstein 17
LF Stewart 13
CF Hunter 23
RF Walker 26
OF Pierre 13
OF Winn 14
DH Zeile 3
CI Valentin 13
MI Young 4
Util T Martinez 5
Bench Zeile 3
Bench Lamb ?
Bench Ordonez ?
Bench Greer ?

SP Martinez 37
SP Washburn 14
SP Weaver 10
SP Pettite 10
SP L Hernandez 3
RP Wakefield 8
RP Benitez 17
RP R Hernandez 3
RP Mercador 3
P Eaton 3
Bench Perez 3
Bench Valdes 3

Those pitiful bench hitters were courtesy of the yahoo auto draft and I hope to replace them on the waiver wire asap.

But what about the rest? I know some are a bit old and that Walker is probably overpriced and I feel that depsite decent line ups in both pitching and batting, I have no real depth. I'm currently trying to deal Vidro and Stewart for Pujols @ $31 although I don't think the opposing GM will bite on this one.

Any suggestions? Where do I start?

Cheers for your help chaps,

luvly jubly

I know you wanna help me, so one last chance ;-)

Or is it that my team is that good there's little room for improvement?

Well, I'd say your team looks awfully similar to that of a certain Soviet leader... I suppose Mr. Andropov left off the prices to avoid seemingly endorsing capitalism? :-D

At any rate, those salaries seem pretty reasonable. Washburn at 14, in particular, is excellent. I doubt that trade will go through, though... :-)
