Thoughts on this team?

Postby mister_jay_peg » Sun Mar 27, 2011 3:32 am

This is a 12-team league, keeps 4 hitters and 2 pitchers. It's 6x6 with standard cats plus total bases and holds.

Here is my team as it stands after the draft (keepers are bolded)

Thoughts? Needs? Etc? (FYI, drafted Harper in last round as a flyer in case he gets called up in Sept and dominates. Can always trade him away for pitching next off-season if Hanson or CC falters.)

C Mike Napoli
1B Miguel Cabrera
2B Howie Kendrick
3B Pedro Alvarez
SS Ian Desmond
OF Jason Heyward
OF Justin Upton
OF Carl Crawford

Util Adam LaRoche
Util David Freese
BN Luke Scott
BN Logan Morrison
BN Bryce Harper

SP CC Sabathia
SP Tommy Hanson

SP Max Scherzer
RP Carlos Mármol
RP Matt Thornton
RP Andrew Bailey
P Jhoulys Chacin
P Jordan Zimmermann
P Evan Meek
BN Shaun Marcum
BN Johnny Cueto
BN Brian Duensing
It's only cheating on your favorite team if you get caught... Like the '07 Series.

Your lineup looks to be well balanced.... your rotation however, I feel like CC is gonna be your work horse and if he falls much like they yanks ull be hurtin... sherzer could come up big if he can find his control.. and your closers seem to be well.. hope baileys arm holds up.. i think ull be just fine

I like the balance you have. There's a good amount of talent there now, and several who should only get better as time goes on. Is it just me thinking you should see if you could upgrade your middle infield? I'm not sure. You could probably package a pitcher and bat to get a pair of good hitters.

I don't see anything glaringly terrible though. Good stuff. ;-D

HITTING: Weak AVG hitting team, solid power and speed, needs more depth B-
PITCHING: Solid starting staff, good bullpen needs one more reliable closer B+

C Mike Napoli ;-D should get 500ab and post some awesome power 3's as a DH this season
1B Miguel Cabrera ;-D hopefully the offseason issues don't affect him this year
2B Howie Kendrick :-? AVG hitter, needs more pop and staying healthy
3B Pedro Alvarez ;-D only needs to hit better
SS Ian Desmond :-? solid SS, but don't him as a real fantasy starter
OF Jason Heyward ;-D the next KG Jr
OF Justin Upton ;-D should rebound this year still very young
OF Carl Crawford
;-D should be awesome in Fenway
Util Adam LaRoche ;-D a good .270 25 guy
Util David Freese ;-D could develop in a great 3B
BN Luke Scott :-t I would've gone with a inf here maybe Infante or Uribe
BN Logan Morrison ;-D should be a good hitter
BN Bryce Harper :-? hopefully not the next Josh Hamilton ( I mean the drug issues)

SP CC Sabathia ;-D his home park scares me and his work load over the past several seasons says he is due for a injury
SP Tommy Hanson
;-D still developing too
SP Max Scherzer ;-D great complement pitcher
RP Carlos Mármol ;-D his stats are just ridicolous
RP Matt Thornton :-t just starting at 34, so I don't expect him to be a full year closer, plus the front office likes Sale better
RP Andrew Bailey ;-D needs to stay healthy
P Jhoulys Chacin ;-D Ubaldo 2.0
P Jordan Zimmermann ;-D Should be awesome this year
P Evan Meek :-? wish the Pirates would make up their mind with him
BN Shaun Marcum ;-D 15 wins 3.40 ERA
BN Johnny Cueto :-? Needs to be more healthy and consitent
BN Brian Duensing :-t a WW pitcher

help with mine?
