Year 3 of a Keeper Rebuild

Postby JJLinn » Wed Mar 28, 2018 2:50 pm

Standard 12 team, 5x5 scoring. Took over a garbage team in a league that lets you keep 10 (plus two players with < 1.000 service time), and have basically been casting my net out to any players under 30 and hoping I get a few hits. The top 6 get paid, so I’m hoping I can at least be competitive this year after taking a beating the last two. Any input is greatly appreciated. Here’s my roster:


C: Willson Contreras (CHC)

C: James McCann (DET)
1B: Trey Mancini (BAL)
2B: DJ LeMahieu (COL)
3B: Manny Machado (BAL)
SS: Alex Bregman (HOU)

2B/SS: Orlando Arcia (MIL)
1B/3B: Miguel Sano (MIN)
OF: Marcell Ozuna (STL)
OF: Ender Inciarte (ATL)
OF: Nomar Mazara (TEX)

OF: Kevin Kiermaier (TB)
OF: Stephen Piscotty (OAK)
OF: Lewis Brinson (MIA)
UTIL: Hunter Renfroe (SD)

BENCH: Colin Moran (PIT)
BENCH: Kolten Wong (STL)
BENCH: Colby Rasmus (BAL)
BENCH: Chris Owings (ARI)
BENCH: Chance Sisco (BAL)

SP: Marcus Stroman (TOR)
SP: Jose Berrios (MIN)

SP: Michael Fulmer (DET)
SP: Kevin Gausman (BAL)
SP: Sean Manaea (OAK)
SP: Kyle Hendricks (CHC)
RP: Blake Parker (LAA)
RP: Joe Jimenez (DET)
RP: Mychal Givens (BAL)
RP: Tommy Kahnle (NYY)

BENCH: Matt Shoemaker (LAA)
BENCH: Andrew Triggs (OAK)
BENCH: Mark Melancon (SF)
DL: Zach Britton (BAL)

Admire your effort, sympathize with your situation. Tho you may not get beat as bad this year; I'd continue to add rookies with an eye on next year. Make trades for injured players that contenders might be willing to part with; I just don't see the star power necessary for a top half finish. Sure hope you have other leagues that are more fun as you continue to upgrade the mess that you inherited. Rather than under 30 players, perhaps target AA minors that other might want or more likely can be stars for you in the next year or 2
