My Fantasy Baseball Team

Mar 22, 2008

My teams consists of C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, and five Bench Spots.

The categories are Run, HR, RBI, SB, Batting Average, Wins, Saves, Ks, ERA & WHIP.

I’m ashamed to say that I forgot about my draft time and the computer autdrafted for me.  Here’s the squad I got.

C – Geovany Soto
1B – Adrian Gonzalez
2B –  Kelly Johnson
3B – Ryan Zimmerman
SS – Rafael Furcal
OF – Alfonso Soriano
OF – Alex Rios
OF – Hunter Pence
Util – Johnny Damon (OF)
Bench – Johnny Peralta (SS)
Bench - Orlando Hudson (2B)
Bench – Mike Cameron (OF)

SP – Johan Santana
SP – Erik Bedard
RP – Joakim Soria
RP – Troy Percival
P – Cole Hamels
P – John Smoltz
P – Matt Cain
Bench – Barry Zito*
Bench – Matt Garza

*I added Barry Zito and dropped Akinori Iwamura (3B).

I have already made a trade. 

I sent:
Bedard, Damon, and Cameron.

I got:
Chris Young (Arizona), Vernon Wells, and Rich Hill.

What do you think of my team?

What do you think of my trade?  I added Power and Steals with Young.   I think he’ll improve at the plate.  I’m hoping Vernon Wells will rebound and return to being of the best players in the game.  Losing Bedard is tough, but you never know how these free agent pitchers work out.  I can live with losing Damon and Cameron.

    Larry – That’s a good fantasy baseball team. I’ll give Zito a chance. If he doesn’t pan out, I’ll get whoever get off to a hot start.

    I don’t mind the club all things considered. I liked getting Chris Young. I expect huge things from him. I dropped Garza for Ty Wigginton. Love his flexibility.
