Help a noob!

Look at my kick ass team! Look at my sorry ass team! Could someone look at my team and tell me what they think is right/wrong?

Help a noob!

Postby NARB » Tue Apr 13, 2010 6:58 pm

My first year playing roto, would love some advice/criticism/suggestions
Off to a slow start (9th of 11), I know it's early but should I make some moves?

11 Team, 6x6 (Holds, Total Bases), Roto

C - Suzuki
1B - Butler
2B - Utley
3B - Michael Young
SS - Jeter
OF - Kemp
OF - Ichiro
OF - Michael Bourn
Util - Kubel
Util - Austin Jackson
BN - Damon
BN - Coghlan
DL - Beltran

SP - Carpenter, Oswalt, Wolf, Zito, Buehrle, Harang, Porcello, Cueto
RP - Rivera, Valverde, Sean Marshall

Some available guys on my watch list (mostly from blog info!)
Raul Ibanez (just released today by another team)
Reimold, Furcal, Blake, Willingham, Headley, JJ Hardy, Gaby Sanchez, Alcides Escobar, Ian Desmond, Travis Snider, Podsednik
P - Mike Adams, Latos, Matusz, Scott Feldman, Sergio Romo, Baez, Marcum, Masterson, Ryan Perry, Zumaya

Feels like I'm heavy on SP already (max 1500 innings) and light on power. Should I drop Cueto, pick up some RP or Power? Feel free to tell me my team sucks, just tell me how I might fix it.

Thanks!

You look light on power. I'd drop Coghlan and grab Ibanez. I'd lose Damon and I'd grab Matusz. I'd lose Porcello and grab Latos. Play Ibanez over Austin Jackson. Then see if anyone will bite on Ichiro in a trade. Try and get a pitcher. Maybe you can get Lester.

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.

I'd try to trade some speed for a bat. Ibanez will help your team, too.

I'd be rather concerned about that 1,500 inning max. I'd drop Zito for Matusz andDamon for Ibanez (dropping Coghlan leaves you VERY heavy on OF with little flexibility). I'd give consideration to Latos at the expense of Wolf or Harang.

I'd really look to move Ichiro/Young/AJax for some power. Hopefully Austin keeps up his hot start and you can package two of these guys together for a nice power bat.

Thanks to all who have given advice. Someone above me in the waiver order nabbed Ibanez, but I did grab Matusz.

Also offered a guy Ichiro for Kendry Morales. He hasn't answered yet. Thoughts?

Also was cosidering dropping Coghlan or Porcello for Willingham. Second Thoughts?

Thanks!

I'd probably move Ichiro for Kendry since you also play with TB. Kendry is also on the up while Ichiro has to be on the downslope at some point. I'd be willing to drop Porcello for Willingham as well.

Porcello doesn't offer much to us fantasy owners.
