Keeper League Team! Need some advice/help!

Postby junkstuff » Thu Mar 31, 2011 12:52 pm


I was wondering if I could get some advice or help on how to improve my team. In return, I will rate and give advice for your team. This is a 12 team, H2H, auction, keeper league. Here are the stats that we are using:



Here is my team:

C - Joe Mauer
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Rickie Weeks
3B - Michael Young
SS - Jose Reyes
CF - Alex Rios
OF - Jayson Werth
OF - Drew Stubbs
Util - Nick Swisher
Util - Travis Snider

SP - Tommy Hanson
SP - Gio Gonzalez
RP - Jonny Venters
RP - Javier Lopez
RP - Peter Moylan
RP - Arthur Rhodes
P - Madison Bumgarner
Bench - Ian Kennedy
Bench - Erik Bedard
Bench - Jorge De La Rosa
Bench - James Shields
Bench - Matt Garza
Bench - Jaime Garcia
DL - Scott Downs

I opted to go with no closers and punt saves. This is because closers cost a lot of money in the auction league, whereas setup men cost next to nothing.

One manager sent me a trade request that would give me Adam Jones for Matt Garza. I am thinking about accepting the trade. Should I do it? What else does my team need. I would love your input and help. I will definitely help you in return. THANK YOU!!

How many do you keep? Jones could definitely have a rebound year, and he's still got a lot of potential. Garza is an extreme flyball pitcher who's going to a park that increases HR; he's on my avoid list this year. I'd make that deal.

I think you've got a real good team, and I like the punting saves strategy although you should be looking for guys who could get saves later on, since punting outright isn't a good idea. Aaron Crow or Collins on KC are good candidates since Soria is trade-bait this year.

I've got a dynasty league question if you want to take a look: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=426171
