First Fantasy Baseball Season

Postby Cadd » Sun Apr 17, 2011 2:47 pm

This was an auction league with keepers. My two keepers that I selected after inheriting the team from someone else were: Hanley Ramirez and Prince Fielder.

These are my players after the draft and after a few pick-ups:
Matt Wieters
(Bal - C)

Prince Fielder
(Mil - 1B)

Neil Walker
(Pit - 2B,3B)

Mark Reynolds
(Bal - 3B)

Hanley Ramírez
(Fla - SS)

Logan Morrison
(Fla - LF)

Chris Young
(Ari - CF)

Ichiro Suzuki
(Sea - RF)

Jay Bruce
(Cin - RF)

Willie Bloomquist
(Ari - 3B,SS,LF,CF,RF)

Martín Prado
(Atl - 2B,3B,LF)

Bobby Abreu

Carlos Lee
(Hou - 1B,LF)

Corey Hart
(Mil - RF) DL

Hiroki Kuroda
(LAD - SP)

Chad Billingsley
(LAD - SP)

Tim Hudson
(Atl - SP)

Matt Cain
(SF - SP)

Roy Oswalt
(Phi - SP)

Mariano Rivera
(NYY - RP)

José Valverde
(Det - RP)

John Axford
(Mil - RP)

Huston Street
(Col - RP)

Max Scherzer
(Det - SP)

R.A. Dickey
(NYM - SP)

Kyle Lohse
(StL - SP)

I'm looking to pick-up a few more pitchers in an attempt to inflate my pitching but I'm not sure who to drop or if I should drop anyone. I was considering getting rid of Carlos Lee and Bobby Abreu for pitchers or something but no one in my league wants to trade. In the first week, I finished 7-7 against the other guy.

You have a pretty solid team. Good call with Willie Bloomquist. Keep an eye on him though. If he starts to under-perform just slightly, the D-Backs will prly sit him. For an average at best team, the D-Backs are deep. However, hes nice to have (hes available at nearly every position - thats why owners LOVE guys like him and Zobrist).

There are a lot of pitchers that Im sure are open in your league. Justin Masterson, Kevin Correia, Michael Pineda, Alexi Ogando, Jhoulys Chacin.

Watch Kurodas outing tonight. He may be someone worth dropping and picking back up later (IMO, no one is waiting for you to drop him so theyc an pick him up - hes not as attractive).

If I were you, I wouldnt be too afraid about dropping either Lee or Abreu (Id get rid of Lee before Abreu IMO).
