    Team thoughts

    5x5 head to head league. Only difference from the default is we score OBP instead of AVG. 10 team keeper league (just to explain why I have some of these combos. Thoughts on what to do other than find a SS upgrade and probably look for some SP help along the way?

    C - Salvador Perez
    1b - Prince, Konerko, Morales, Teixeira (grabbed him in the 25th round on a flyer)
    2b - Kinsler
    3b - Sandoval
    SS - Alexei Ramirez
    OF - McCutchen, Stanton, Harper, Gomez, Revere, Morse, D. Brown, S. Marte
    SP - Lee, Bumgarner, Moore, Peavy, Holland, Vargas
    RP - Reed, Perez, Rondon, Janssen

    • You're going to play Prince everyday - too many 1B. Try to trade Konerko or Morales for SP. Tex is out until June. I would try to trade him when he gets back if you can't trade him now. Too many OFs too. You're probably going to play Cutch, Stanton & Harper everyday so I would try to trade 3 of the other guys. Try to get a guy like Seager who's eligible at 2b/3b.

    • instead of having 8 OF you should have some backups at 2B, SS & 3B. Guys like Seager, Scutaro, Carpenter and Rutledge really help solidify a persons bench and gives you the ability to put them in the starting lineup when your starters have the day off.

      • I thought about that, but there are so many backup level MI/CI on the wire that I decided to take a flyer on some of these OF that I like to make some noise. Looking at the wire, though I may drop Marte for Izturis. He's got eligibility at 2b, SS, and 3b, so one guy would help cover my entire IF. If he wins the everyday gig I like his speed, if not, I move on.

    • Pretty good. Try and trade Gomez for an upgraded SS and you're good. Please answer mine.
