State of the SEA Dodgers is a series that takes a broad look at my 15-team Roto contract dynasty team. It externalizes my thoughts on the team and is used to help me plan paths forward.
This is a new league (top 3 places paid each year), so not much recap other than gauging the status of the team. In the next couple weeks, I will have a more detailed overview of how I am looking at the 2016 season and where I need to focus during free agency and the busy trading season that usually follows initial league creature roster freezes.
Before delving into numbers, I like the chances of this team to compete this year. Both MLB Mariners and Dodgers have nice MLB components — particularly starting pitching — so I should be able to compete for #1 in counting stats (Wins / Strikeouts) and have a good chance in the ratios (ERA / WHIP). Saves is a bit iffy from Seattle and neither team has finishing building their bullpen for upcoming season. This will be an area to address.
From the hitting perspective, I feel confident that I will be competing for top spots in HR, RBI, and TB, but, from memory, many of my hitters have questionable contributions to OBP and SBs. Again, something to focus on during upcoming months (and verify by looking at projections).
Dodgers minor league system is deep enough to enable trades to support my major league team without completely depleting the farm.
