Have a bad feeling about the Philly's offense this year

Postby Cubes10 » Tue Feb 07, 2012 1:03 pm

Howard coming off injury and probably won't play much in the early going. Utley can't stay healthy...ever. Same with Rollins. The only main stays I see are Pence and Victorino.

With that, should we not expect as many wins from their starting pitchers as we usually do?

I guess you would have to compare WAR from 2011 to expected WAR for 2012. However, I doubt the Phillies win 102 games again. 90-93? Sure. 95-97? Maybe.
I like sports with balls in them.

Philly will still have arguably the best staff in baseball. Adding Pap will only help bring consistency to the bullpen. They will likely score less runs as an offense, but I doubt overall team wins will drop off much.

Also keep in mind that Miami, Washington and New York all project to be better, although realistically New York will still suck.

But from a fantasy perspective, let us all pray for Mayberry getting his chance in that crumbling lineup. Round 19 flier on an OF hitting in that ballpark for half his games with 15HRs in 267 ABs last year.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.

...and Wright will be on another team in a few months (I'm betting on Colorado).

Really? I can't see a move for him unless the team is in contention and I don't have high hopes for either of those teams to be that deep into competing this year by the summer. Colorado maybe but that pitching staff has alot of question marks.

True, they have a bad staff, but there isn't exactly a world-beater in that division. Colorado will be within striking distance in July. They have plenty of talent to make the trade but it probably comes down to Wright's willingness to sign an extension. Ultimately we're talking about a trade that may or may not take place in six months :D .
