Look at my kickass team!

Postby OBC » Thu Apr 01, 2010 8:05 pm

Sorry had to steal the forum's tagline...

This was 10 team 5x5 roto. All in all, I am quite happy with my team. The one glaring exception is my SS predicament. I was one pick away from stealing Reyes late in the 5th round. After he went I decided to punt SS to the teens. Welp, wouldn't you know it, I ended up with friggin Furcal with Alcides Escobar backing him up...so the question is: how worried should I be?

Pretty shallow league to have Furcal and Alcides both, but because it's shallow there will be guys you can grab off waivers to fix that. Bigger concern I think is without them you're light on speed. Your pitching looks fine.

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.

Really? You think my speed may be an issue? I had the below projections for my guys. Am I off or just underestimating how many sb's I'll need?

Kemp - 35
Phillips - 26
Granderson - 22
Cruz - 17
Borbon - 40

Additionally, should I drop Furcal for any of the following SS on the waiver wires?

Hardy
Tejada
Aybar
Peralta
EverCarb
Barnes

I'm leaning towards Tejada, but his lack of speed might not be the best fit considering your comments.

Be nice if Borbon got 40 and I think he can, but I wouldn't count him for that. I'd grab EverCab.
