re: The ATL Thread Baseball League: Season Long Thread


Lincecuminsideme:

Starting Lineup - 11th
This lineup graded out the lowest with my projections, as every hitting category is projected to come in at 10th or worst, other than RBI's which was graded as 8th best.
Players I like - Cano, Morse, Montero
Players I don't like - Frenchy, Hardy, M. Young

Pitching - 12th
This ranking could have been higher, but I'm not big on Kennedy and Weaver as much as others are. After that, you have a combination of younger guys that can go either way this year and some vets that will do their usual thing. I don't like only carrying 1 closer, and this hurt the rankings as well.
Players I like - Hellickson, Weaver
Players I don't like - Cahill, Chacin, Fister

Bench - 12th
Not a lot of upside on the bench and for a team that I'm not too fond of, I would prefer a little bit more potential. There are some guys who can do a few different things, and that will be good.

Overall - 12th (11.55)
There is definitely some work to do with this team, IMO, but with a few moves here and there and the addition of some closers, this team will become more competitive.

J Hey Kid (Hull):

Starting Lineup - 12th
The good news is, this lineup is one of the top ranked SB teams at the moment. The bad news is, they are ranked at least 11/12 in all 4 other hitting categories.
Players I like - Tulo, Cruz, Bonifacio
Players I don't like - Prado, Ramos

Pitching - 9th
The starting pitching isn't that bad, but there isn't a whole lot of depth. You have Halladay, Haren, and then some meh. I do like Sale's upside and think he can be valuable depending on how well he handles the transition to the rotation. I do have this team ranked in the top 3 for relievers because I like having 4 closers, with two of them being very good. I don't expect Guerra to keep his job for the long term, but for now this team should win saves most weeks.
Players I like - Halladay, Haren, Sale
Players I don't like - Lilly, Garcia

Bench - 2nd
I really like this bench a lot. Each one of the 5 bench players could start if needed and not a lot of production would be lost. Good mix of speed and power throughout.

Overall - 11th (9.65)
Sorry, Hull. Don't hate me.

I found it funny that Hubs is the one who basically got the draft date changed, and then he no shows.

Hansons Homies (Kissinger):

Starting Lineup - 10th
Like Hull, this team has a ton of speed. Graded out as 2nd in the league. Also like Hull, most other things graded around the bottom, including last in HRs. OPS did grade out around the middle of the pack. Good thing here is, there is more than enough speed on this team and a trade in the future can bring more balance to this lineup. At the same time, Miguel Cabrera is a guy that can sometimes win you categories single handedly.
Players I like - Cabrera, Sandoval, A Rod
Players I don't like - Choo, Soto, Crisp

Pitching - 11th
Very top heavy. See below.
Players I like - Verlander, Zimmerman, Marcum
Players I don't like - Kuroda, Masterson, Liriano, Dickey, Francisco Cordero (lulz autopick)

Bench - 2nd
I really, really like this bench. Love the upside in Mesoraco. Seth Smith, Austin Jackson, Carlos Lee, Aviles. These are all guys that can help out the lineup on a weekly basis.

Overall - 10th (9.55)
As you can see, this team and Hull were ranked very close to each other. Autodrafting is a bitch.

Did we have 3 teams autodrafting? I did get a friend in there after the first hour to start drafting for me

TBD (Caple?):

Starting Lineup - 7th
This lineup is very well balanced, as it came in between 4th and 8th in all hitting categories. Should mean that the team will be in contention for all categories each and every week. Other than Pujols, there are no other top studs, but it is a team filled with a bunch of really good fantasy players.
Players I like - Holliday, Kinsler, Cuddyer
Players I don't like - Pence, Freese

Pitching - 8th
There are some really good pitchers on this team, but not a whole lot of upside maybe outside of Pineda. Filled with a bunch of veterans in both the starting rotation and relief pitching that you just know what you are going to get from them, not that there is anything wrong with that. It is a safe pitching group.

Players I like - Lee, Lester, Nathan
Players I don't like - Shields, Jackson, Billingsly, Johnson

Bench - 11th
Again, a bunch of meh. Not a lot of upside here, just some older veterans who aren't going to provide a whole lot of production to the team.

Overall - 9th (7.85)
Not a lot of youth on this team, which would hurt down the line in a keeper league. As for now, this team should be competitive.

saves are overrated in fantasy baseball. although I will say I've never played in a k/9 league before so that kinda threw me for a loop.

31 World Order:

Starting Lineup - 6th
Pretty good starting lineup except for one thing, there is no speed. This team finished 12th when graded in SB and it really wasn't close. This team will be fine when it comes to power as they graded out in the top 5 for HR, RBIs, and OPS. There is a good mix between veterans and youth.
Players I like - Hosmer, Weiters, Gordon, Morrison
Players I don't like - Drew, Adam Jones

Pitching - 10th
This team finished last for SP and best for RP, so that leads to a 10th place pitching ranking for me. I'm really not a big fan of anyone in the current rotation, but at least there are some guys with upside, such as Minor. I'm high on every single one of 31's RP, especially Jansen, who I hope can grab the closer's job sooner rather than later.
Players I like - Minor, all closers
Players I don't like - Garza, Norris, Danks

Bench - 3rd
Really like the bench with Mayberry and Howard, and Victor will be a nice piece for next year's team if he holds onto him for the entire year.
Howard will be a nice add when he is able to come back.

Overall - 8th (7.5)

GodBlessChrisLeroux:

Starting Lineup - 9th
This team ranked out slightly below average in every hitting category, but I like what was done. I do think this team could fare a lot better with a little more power, but a healthy Morales could help that.
Players I like - Morales, Swisher, Napoli, Kendrick
Players I don't like - Zimmerman, Stubbs

Pitching - 6th
This pitching staff confused me. It started off really well with Kershaw, Hamels, and Beachy. I didn't understand many of the other picks for a k/9 league. Jurrjens, Buerhle, Alvarez. Just don't like what was done in the back end. Having two good closers in Valverde and Street will help things out.
Players I like - Kershaw, Hamels, Beachy, Valverde
Players I don't like - Most everyone else

Bench - 4th
Good solid bench filled with veterans that can help produce. I like Peralta a lot and think Hill will have a good year. Soriano, KJ, and even Chipper could also fill in if need be at some point in the year. I do wish there was one player with more upside on the bench, though.

Overall - 7th (7.15)
This is the end of the tier of this team, 31, and TBD, who were all ranked pretty close together. All are capable of making the playoffs, but I do believe each could make one or two deals and improve their chances dramatically.

Schafer's Vroooooooooooom (Volfan)

Starting Lineup - 8th
Here is another middle of the pack offense that won't be great at anything, but won't be terrible either. The team is ranked between 6th and 9th in all 5 categories. I really like the youth that is on this team, but it is youth that can produce now.
Players I like - Upton, Castro, Alonso, Beltran
Players I don't like - Ackley

Pitching - 2nd
Top ranked starting pitching staff in the league IMO. The only reason they aren't ranked number 1 is the RP is ranked at 11th since there is only 1 guy that is going to get save chances at the beginning of the year, and that is Capps who is not that good. King Felix, Stras, Josh Johnson, and Romero are all guys who can produce like #1's. I just love the upside there.
Players I like - The ones I listed, as well as Volquez.
Players I don't like - Feliz, Wandy, Capps

Bench - 8th
The only reason this bench isn't ranked higher is there isn't much of one. It is very thin. I do like the upside of Lorenzo Cain who I was really hoping would become a Brave a couple of years ago.

Overall - 6th (5.30)
Pretty good team that could become a very good team with the addition of a closer or two. If Johnson and Stras stay healthy, people will have a hard time winning the other 4 pitching categories every week, and the offense will be competitive. I see this as a team that will be right there for the playoffs all year long.

re: The ATL Thread Baseball League: Season Long Thread


You only really need like 4 starters in a league like this. I got 3 that I am comfortable with and a few with big upsides. I feel that my pen will help me out with this.

Tchamp2

Starting Lineup - 2nd
This lineup is good, really fricking good. Ranked either 1st or 2nd in HR, Runs, RBIs, and SBs. Only thing keeping him from the top ranking is he graded out 10th in OPS. You look at it and aren't completely blown away, but there is not a weak spot in the lineup and a bunch of guys produce in 4 or even 5 categories.
Players I like - Kemp, Reynolds
Players I don't like - Bourn

Pitching - 7th
I like the top half of the rotation of Lincecum, Hanson, and Beckett while also liking the trio of closers who should help win saves a lot of the weeks. Johan is an interesting guy here, and I'll be curious to see how he looks in the opening part of the season.
Players I like - Hanson, Beckett, Bell
Players I don't like - Tim Hudson, Buchholz, Perez

Bench - 9th
Went the young route with Belt, Profar, and Arenado. Maybe a little too young. But they will be valuable down the line, in either a trade or if he can wait it out for them to get to the bigs.

Overall - 5th (4.95)
Pretty damn good team that should make the playoffs, especially if another decent starter is added.

re: The ATL Thread Baseball League: Season Long Thread


Yeah maybe. My goal was to get 5 good starters, with a decent 6. I think that will be a good enough number to stay low enough in era and whip, and also hang around in qs as well.

4 is a little too low for me, but thats JMO.
