5x5 Nonkeeper Autodraft Team after a few Deals - Please help

Postby The_Idiot » Tue Mar 23, 2004 11:46 pm

This is my team after a few trades:
C - Moeller and Ausmus
1b - Thome
2b - Spivey
ss - Renteria
3b - A-Rod
MI - Furcal
CI - Hinske or Konerko
Util - Bernie Williams or Jay Payton
OF - Guillen or Kearns
OF - LGonzalez
OF - Hideki Matsui
OF - A Sanchez

SP - Mulder
SP - Piniero
SP - O Perez
CL - Wagner
CL - Foulke
CL - Hoffman
CL - Nen
CL - Urbina
RP - Lidge

I see my weaknesses as Catcher and Starting pitching. I have already dealt Jason Isrinhausen for Mark Mulder and the traded Joe Borowski for Jose Guillen.

There are little to no catchers available on waivers - all the usual sleeper suspects (Mauer, martinez...) are gone. Best avaible is probably Michael Barret. Affeldt, Meche and Aaron Harang have caught my eye as pitching waiver pick-ups.

Any other advice?

What should I expect from Spivey, Kearns and Honske? If they produce, I think I will have a solid squad.

Good observations. Affeldt or Meche are great additions to your staff. Lots of closers, which will help, Spivey and C are weaknesses, but if you grab one of those starters, your pitching should be fine.

I think I'd play Kearns and Guillen instead of williams or payton... watch out for gonzo, he's a bit hurt.
