Whatcha think? Any holes or glaring problems? (whir)

Postby misterf » Thu Mar 27, 2014 2:39 am

12-team standard roto:

What do you think of this team I put together? I am fairly happy with it, but it's always nice to get a few second opinions:

c - Miguel Montero
1b - Freddie Freeman
2b - Jose Altuve
3b - Ryan Zimmerman
ss - Ian Desmond
of - CarGo
of - Allen Craig
of - Desmond Jennings
ut - Anthony Rizzo
ut - Kyle Seager

bn - Christian Yelich (of)
bn - Mike Moustakas (3b)
bn - Anthony Rendon (2b/3b)

sp - Yu Darvish
sp - Anibal Sanchez
sp - Danny Salazar
sp - Jeff Samardzija
sp - Hiroki Kuroda
sp - Corey Kluber

rp - Sergio Romo
rp - Jonathan Papelbon
rp - John Axford
rp - JJ Hoover

I know my catcher is a concern.........this league really overvalue their catchers and, as a rule, I don't reach for catchers (or closers) I missed out on the top couple of tiers of catchers,at which point I resigned myself to living with whichever scrub I could get in the last round or two. Other than the catcher position, I am rather happy with this team, though.....

......but what do you guys think!?

Thanks in advance.........................of course, WHIR


To give you an idea of how much this league reached for catchers:

the top 3 catchers were taken within the top 40 picks.........and the top 10 catchers (through wieters and gattis were all gone before my pick in the 12th round (aka pick 140)

I like your team a lot. I think you have a lot of upside guys with Jennings, Rizzo, Seager and Yelich that could be boom or bust. Hopefully boom for your sake. You have a fairly strong pitching staff too but I think you could use another top notch starter. I don't trust Anibal to repeat last year's numbers and I am a little worried about Darvish's injury status. I'd try to package Rizzo and Yelich for a second tier starter like Bailey or Cobb to round out your starting pitchers. And I wouldn't worry about catcher. Montero is a bounce back candidate and should do well and catcher is always the position I worry least about. Nice team overall though.

Please help me out

I would try and find another big bad for more homers instead of upgrading pitching. Your pitching should be fine.

I think you're definitely well rounded. I really like your pitchers- lots and lots of upside. I wouldn't worry too much about Catchers. Keep an eye on the WW, there'll be some up-and-coming Catchers that will emerge.

Help with mine?
