Would like an assessment...

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Would like an assessment...

Postby Swat290 » Tue Mar 19, 2013 9:56 am

5x5 hth standard league with OBP instead of AVG.

Keepers: Verlander, McCutchen, Upton, Scherzer, Dickey

Brian McCann
Paul Goldschmidt
Emilio Bonifacio
Mike Moustakas
Jimmy Rollins
Carlos Gonzalez
Andrew McCutchen
B.J. Upton
Carlos Beltran
Chris Davis
no bench bats

Justin Verlander
Max Scherzer
Jason Motte
Kenley Jansen
Matt Garza
Wade Miley
R.A. Dickey
Sergio Santos
Jonathan Niese
Homer Bailey
Hyun-Jin Ryu (awesome name points)
Lance Lynn
Trevor Cahill

I went heavy on pitching in the later rounds of the draft. I had all my starting offensive players drafted by the 13th round in Brian McCann. I am wondering how much I will have to tinker with the offense. I can accept not having a super strong middle infield as I love my outfield... but I'm bordering on being bias. I also intend on putting good use to your stream-o-nator.

Rotation looks fine especially if you plan to stream. I always want a couple of guys you can count on which you have and then fill out the rest with streamers.

Only problem I have with your offense is Bonifacio. I question how much value he is going to have. I think he will get enough at bats but something tells me he just isn't going to have a great year. I would also look to get at least one bench bat once the season starts up. Between Rollins and Beltran you know you will have some injury days ahead of you.

Yea the irrational part of me really likes Bonifacio. I had him last year and loved the SB's he was getting but I doubt he will duplicate that performance, even in a full time roll. Good news is someone in our league just dropped Kipnis and I've got the 3rd waiver claim, he shall be mine!

I am in the process of shopping Verlander around for another big bat. I've been offered Reyes and Zoebrist for Verlander and Rollins but I rejected the trade. What kind of talent do you think Verlander can get? He was a second round keeper this season and will move up a round next season if he is kept so keeper value isn't all the much.

And as always I thank you sir!
