Is my team not as good as I thought?



I am getting uneasy. I won this league easy last year and thought I drafted well. It is a mixed ROTO 11-team league.

Am I panicking too early or is there a serious problem? I ran multiple predictions via sites and they all predicted I would win. I am sitting in 9th...WTH?!?!

C - Molina
C - Montero
1B - Butler
1B - Ike Davis
2B - Cano
2B - Nelson (my biggest weakness)
3B - Freese
3B - Pachiko (have Headley but on DL)
SS - Segura
SS - Andrus
OF - Kemp
OF - Cargo
OF - Adam Jones
OF - Soriano
U - Miggy

SP - Strausburg
SP - Bumgarner
SP - Neise
SP - Estrada
SP - Latos
SP - Morrow
RP - Holland
RP - That Japanese closer from the Cubs
RP - Glen Perkins
RP - Frieri

Also, have Ortiz, who will go to Utility when he returns. When that happens, I'll have an extra 3B who I can trade to upgrade 2B or strengthen pitching.

Look at the numbers and it shows a lot of those guys are struggling. That and you obviously neglected pitching in your draft

That's the understatement of the year. The season is barely 10 days in. Chill.

It's been two weeks.

And forgive me if I don't think you have CarGo, Kemp, Cano, Miggy, Billy Butler, Adam Jones and Strasburg in an 11-team league.

How does one team end up with four top-10 picks?

You're playing roto and it's a week and a half into the season.

Should I trade to upgrade 2B or try to trade a 2-for-1 with Freese and a marginal starter for a better SP?

Fire sale is the only option.

I'd just wait

You have 4 of the best hitters along with great 2nd tier guys in jones butler yadi. They're going to hit

Pitching isn't terrible if those guys perform like they're capable

Congrats on beating a bunch of 6th graders. No way you should have this type of squad in an 11 team league.

Out of that list, five (Strausburg, Kemp, Cano, Jones and Cargo) were keepers. I drafted Miggy at $46 and traded Mauer to acquire Butler. I do have holes, but this is a competitive league.

Nothing wrong with your team. It's just early.

The best team I drafted, IMO, is currently sitting in 9th in a roto league.
