Risk/Reward Team. What are your thoughts?

Postby Coaster » Wed Mar 14, 2012 6:01 pm

We had our draft earlier this week. This is for a 12 team H2H league. I didn't have any time to prepare or research this year other than at the last minute. I think what I have is a high risk/high reward team. If my offense plays up to or above expectations I will be in good shape, but it could fail miserably.

Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL, DL, DL

Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Triples (3B), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Batting Average (AVG), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

C - J.C. Arencibia
1B - Pablo Sandoval
2B - Jamile Weeks
3B - Brett Lawrie
SS - Jimmy Rollins
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Jason Heyward
OF - Corey Hart
Util - Carlos Beltran
BN - Jason Kipnis
BN - Jhonny Peralta
BN - Edwin Encarnacion

SP - Roy Halladay
SP - Zach Greinke
RP - Jonathan Papelbon
RP - Matt Moore
P - Sergio Santos
P - Doug Fister
P - Colby Lewis
BN - Sean Marshall
BN - Ted Lilly

So, what are your thoughts? Thanks!

Please rate my auction results at:


C - J.C. Arencibia--love his upside, potential power
1B - Pablo Sandoval--not a big fan, ...but experts seem fond of him
2B - Jamile Weeks--nice player to have-great speed
3B - Brett Lawrie--could make or break your team, experts either love or hate him
SS - Jimmy Rollins--seems he is drifting away from his past prowess
OF - Ryan Braun--love him, ....selling at a discount, when there is REALLY no reason for it
OF - Jason Heyward--another make or break guy, ....pray for him to be at full strength
OF - Corey Hart--bad break, ....wasn't a fan anyway
Util - Carlos Beltran--he might have one good year left
BN - Jason Kipnis--solid bench guy, especially with no stud at 2B
BN - Jhonny Peralta--not impressed
BN - Edwin Encarnacion--great bench guy, with good upside, ....could break out

SP - Roy Halladay--I loved this pick till the last 24 hours when I hear his velocity might be down, rocked in Spr game
SP - Zach Greinke--Don't rank him as 'elite' as most experts do, injury prone
RP - Jonathan Papelbon--Love this guy, but I HATE spending high on closers
RP - Matt Moore--Make or break pitcher, everybody loves his potential, I think they're right
P - Sergio Santos--Very underrated, ....if you got him cheap, I love it
P - Doug Fister--I like him, but small sample of his work, ....hard to say
P - Colby Lewis--Experts like him, somebody dumped him early in 2011, I pounced, happy at first, ....then disgusted-I'm not buying
BN - Sean Marshall--rock solid hold guy
BN - Ted Lilly--reliable, ....should have a good year or two left

Overall, a decent team. Might have spent a bit high on pitching, ....and your depth there needs help. Only one hold guy and if Papelbon goes down, Sergio is fine, .....but he won't be enough. Look to beef up hitting and relief depth off the WW, ....and pray for Halladay to be his usual self. Good job.
