Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I was joking around in the message boards predicting that my team is going to finish in 1st place this year,blah blah blah the usual talk.Then one manager told me that he doesnt see my team as a top 3 team.I might have been joking about 1st place but I think I have a strong chance of finishing in the top 3,what do you think?
12 team DYNASTY H2H 6x6(+OBP and HLD)
LF D Brown
Util Zobrist, Calhoun
SP Anibal Sanchez,Scherzer,Bailey
BN Ventura,Nate Jones,LaTroy Hawkins
I think both my offense and pitching are strong.
For batting,I took a lot of players that can contribute in many categories,including McCutchen,Kipnis,Wright,Goldscmidt(I know most people dont consider him as a multi category player,but dont forget he has stolen 33 bases in his last 2 years) and Zobrist.I also have great prospects in Springer,Castellanos and Polanco and some sluggers in Goldscmidt,Brown,Bautsita and Hardy.
Another thing I like is that I have a lot of players with good AVG and OBP and I dont have a Dunn/Granderson/Trumbo type of guy that will totally ruin my AVG.
For pitching,I get a lot of Ks out of my SPs and I am hoping my RPs will be able to bring down the decent ERA and WHIP my SPs have.I probably wont lose saves,but that is all up to how Jones and Hawkins pitch.
As you can see,I am punting HLDs but I may pick up a setup guy if some of my players get injured during the year.
Anyways,what are you thoughts on this team?
Do you think it can finish in the top 3?
I like your team and your of is very good, I agree with you! My concern would be at closer: Rosenthal may lose job to Motte at end of April,Parnell wont pitch 2 days in a row so Valverde gets some saves, Hawkins will split with Brothers and not sure what Jones will do as closer. I would try to trade or package a couple of those guys for established closers with nobody on their heels
To answer questions like this you would always need to see the other teams in the league too.
Also, would need to know haw many teams in the league.
Without knowing that...
You got a good shot in a ten team league and if you stay active and work the waiver wire all season you may even make it to the top 3 or 4 in a 12 team league? Pitching is going to be your biggest struggle all year.
