How should I improve my roster? WHIR

Postby pekelly27 » Fri Mar 07, 2014 8:52 pm

Sorry if this is a double post, I think I did it in the wrong forum.

I'm in a 10-team salary cap ($1000) dynasty league and am wondering if I could get some input on my roster and advice on what to do heading into my free agency auction. This is my team as of now, with my players under contract etc. We have the draft shortly.

Categories are:

This is my team right now pre-auction (40-man roster):

C: Yadier Molina: $59 over 4 years
1B: Mike Napoli: $1 over 1 years (RFA)
2B: Brandon Phillips: $59 over 3 years (option after 1)
SS: Ian Desmond: $63 over 3 years (option after 1)
3B: Chase Headley: $75 over 4 years (option after 2)
1B/3B: Ike Davis: $38 over 2 years
2B/SS: Jurickson Profar: $10 over 2 followed by 3 years of arbitration
OF: Matt Kemp: $139 over 4 years (option after 2)
OF: Jay Bruce: $86 over 3 years
OF: Shin-Soo Choo: $50 over 1 years (RFA)
OF: Michael Bourn: $31 over 1 years
UTIL: David Ortiz: $20 over 1 years (RFA)
BE: Nick Castellanos: $10 over 3 years followed by 3 years of arbitration
BE: Andre Ethier: $22 over 1 years
BE: Alcides Escobar: $13 over 2 years
BE: Jed Lowrie: $10 over 1 years (RFA)

SP: Matt Cain: $85 over 4 years (option after 1)
SP: Zack Greinke: $75 over 4 years (option after 2)
SP: Cole Hamels: $74 over 4 years (option after 2)
RP: Carlos Martinez: $10 for 3 years followed by 3 years of arbitration

Minor Leagues:
Kris Bryant, George Springer, Clint Frazier, David Dahl, Noah Syndergaard, Lucas Giolito, Kevin Gausman, Julio Urias (these players are assigned 10-10-10-arb-arb-arb contracts when called up)—I managed to collect a lot of picks for this draft over the offseason by selling off short-term assets.
I also have the following picks coming up in the next two years:
2014: 1, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5
2015: 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5
Players available for our free agency draft:
Top Position Players: Torii Hunter, Carlos Beltran, Jayson Werth Michael Cuddyer, Dominic Brown, Carl Crawford, Shane Victorino, Alex Rios, Khris Davis, Victor Martinez, Brian McCann, Wilson Ramos, Jason Castro, Evan Gattis, Chase Utley, Aaron Hill, Jose Altuve, Anthony Rendon, Jean Segura, Jonathan Villar, Derek Jeter, Matt Adams, Jose Abreu, Chris Carter

Top Pitchers: Anibal Sanchez, Matt Garza, Hiroki Kuroda, Justin Masterson, Doug Fister, Patrick Corbin, Danny Salazar, Masahiro Tanaka, Grant Balfour, Jonathan Papelbon, Casey Janssen, Jim Johnson, Neftali Feliz, Steve Cishek, Jim Henderson, Trevor Rosenthal

As of right now, my roster stands at $930/$1000.
My FA target list includes Brown, Rendon, Villar, Beltran, Werth, Crawford, Abreu, Altuve, Adams, and ratio guys to fill out the RP slots. Although I did trade closers last year for first round picks, so that could be a viable strategy.

Basically, I am looking for advice on the following questions:
1. What categories/players should I look to target in our free agency auction?
2. What players should I look to move?
3. Should I sell off some of my prospects to improve certain positions; if so, whom?
4. Any other advice you may have.

I really appreciate the help, and I know this is a laundry list of details, but I promise to return the help by answering your questions.
