Weakness at Third Base

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Weakness at Third Base

Postby Mr. Rickey » Mon Mar 26, 2012 2:45 pm

I am in a 10 team 5X5 roto league and drafted this team:

C Weiters
1B Berkman
2B Kinsler
3B Bonifacio
SS Reyes
OF Braun
OF Bruce
OF Cruz
Util Howie Kendrick

SP Bumgarner
SP Gio Gonzalez
RP Valverde
RP Motte
P Zimmerman
P Scherzer
P Frank Francisco
P Jhoulys

BN Addison Reed
BN Adam Lind
BN Logan Morrison
BN Torii Hunter

Overall, I like the team except for 3B. I could pick up Valencia or Ian Stewart. Would you make a move and who would you add/ drop? Otherwise, how does it look?

Seems like there should be more talent than Valencia or Stewart still available in a 10 team shallow league.

Otherwise, I see some options to drop but it would depend on who's available.

Is Moustakas available? I'd rather roll with him than Boneface at 3B.

No Moustakas. People seem to have stock piled 3B maybe because the position is scarce this year. Maybe I'm better off waiting a bit and trying to work a trade since I have some extra OFs.

You've got a considerable amount of injury concern in your offense. I agree with what others have said about 1B and 3B. I'd honestly prefer to play Lind at 1B over Berkman. I have absolutely ZERO faith in him coming close to his production of last season. I'd look at packaging him and Boneface for a 3B upgrade, or something along those lines. I'm sure not everyone thinks the same as I do about Berkman.

I can't believe there isn't anything on the wire in a 10 team league. Why don't you list what's available?
