12-team 5x5 roto

Postby jonthefon » Wed Mar 24, 2010 4:35 am

Shameless pledge for help, typically:

5x5 Yahoo! standard roto (i.e. 2Cs, 5 OFs, MI and CI), 26-round snake

Drafted 9th, I included one post-draft trade of Vic Martinez (4th round, 40 overall) and Homer Bailey (25th round) for Miguel Cabrera and Austin Jackson - which I call a steal, but my ego always comes into question when I receive rather than send such an offer.

But anyway, final team:

C: Iannetta (21st round), unfilled thanks to V-Mart trade
1B: Teixeira (1st)
2B: Callaspo (23rd)
SS: Rollins (3rd)
3B: Wright (2nd)
MI: Escobar (17th)
CI: Pena (9th)
OF: Adam Jones (6th), Hamilton (8th), Bruce (11th), Garrett Jones (15th), Gutierrez (19th)
Util: Miggy Cabrera
BN: Headley (20th), Brantley (22nd), Snider (26th), Jackson

P: Wainwright (5th), Nolasco (7th), Billingsley (10th), Slowey (12th), Aardsma (13th), Oswalt (14th), Rauch (16th), Buchholz (18th), Latos (24th)


Which leaves me with a number of post-draft questions.

First, I entered in Razzball projections for my team and found out they basically met all the "recommended" quotas for each category. Of course, I probably can't read too much into that. I think I could get a little pressed by relying on Brantley, Jackson and Escobar to meet their steals projections and I'm not certain about average, but overall things look okay there. Pitching, I have no idea how to judge but of course it'd be imperative for me to keep track of the WW throughout the season with only two closers right now.

Second: with Miguel Cabrera, do I really need a second catcher off the waiver-wire to provide yawnstipating numbers which come with a mediocre average? And with Teixeira, Cabrera and Pena, should I deal Pena for a somewhat reliable closer, or more reliable speed?

Finally, which of these schmohawks would be the best bet at second according to nominal contribution to needs (with an upside play like Sizemore already taken): Callaspo, Hudson, FeLope, Johnson, Izturis, Iwamura, Bloomquist?

Even if those bench hitters meet their projections, you can't count them and your lineup. You can't play everyone. I'm not a fan of bench hitters, especially not that many. Escobar, I have no problem with him meeting his projections. Sure, anything can happen, but something could happen to Tex too. You can't think like no one's going to pan out.

"Second: with Miguel Cabrera, do I really need a second catcher off the waiver-wire to provide yawnstipating numbers which come with a mediocre average?" Don't understand this. A 2nd catcher? Where? And what does this have to do with Miggy?

I'd own Johnson.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
