Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
12 team H2H.
Starters: David Price, Bumgarner, Cole Hamels, Buerhle, Jason Vargas.
Closers: Jim Johnson, Putz, Hanrahan, Motte, Nathan.
I also have Drew Storen (who may or may not be a closer) waiting to see. May drop him if he doesnt close and pick up another bat.
I don't have any speed. Rutledge & Eaton are question marks. I have 2 open roster spots.
Adam Eaton-UTIL, OF
Alexi Ramirex- UTIL, SS
I think I have a decent amount of power hitters. 5 guys who will deliver 30HR and 100RBI. Need Castro to step up big this year. I think my pitching staff can compete with anybody's - especially when Price, Bumgarner & Hamels pitch twice in a week. Playoff team for sure, not confident I can win it all again. Ruledge & Eaton could be sleepers or busts. Ideas?
You don't necessarily need SB's if you can dominate the pitching categories. I would not put hitters on your bench in a H2H league. You may be a bit challenged for K's and W's with your pitching, but should be solid in ERA and WHIP. I would look for a couple of low WHIP SP's with decent K rates to extend your rotation and try for more W's and K's without blowing your WHIP and ERA.

Price, Bumgarder & Hamels will each get 200Ks. 20. 17. 1nd 16 wins. Vargas 14 wins 140K, Buerhle 13 wins 125Ks. If Storen doesn't get the closer role I'll drop him and pick up another starter. Plus I still have 2 open roster spots 2 add a couple more starters. So I should be OK across the board in pitching.
i dont see you winning wins or ks enough to have a dominant pitching staff. and since you spent a lot on pitching i think its in your best interest to get more starters that are good. i dont think you will be very competitive in runs, sbs, or avg and i your power hitters outside of miggy are pretty inconsistent so i cant say im a big fan of this team

I Wins is my weaakest point in pitching but I still have 2 open roster spots to make up some of that. ANd while my offense doesn't have a lot of studs...any fantasy offense with 5 30HR 100 RBI guys will hold upp over the season. But you are right in that my pitching has to carry this teams and Ws & Ks are the areas I need to build.
trade miggy in a 3 for 1 trade to improve your bats... I wouldnt survive with Josh at 2B, LaRoche at 1B and a bunch of aged OF(no offense) get middle round value for miggy and improve your whole team

That's an interesting idea. I will look into that. Rutledge is hyped but Im not yet sold on him. Laroche hit 33 HR last year, he was hurt year before (only 150 AB) but the year before he hit 25HR and now that he's playing 1B he's less likely to get hurt. Also Soriano is back hitting cleanup and he's coming off a really solid season.
