Just lost first place for first time in 5 weeks Help

Postby garretterik » Wed Jun 06, 2012 2:10 pm

I am in a standard 12 team Yahoo 5 x5 ROTO League. This is my first time doing ROTO, but thanks to the drafting advice of the Cafe I have dominated all year. ;-D A number of injuries (Tulo, Sandoval, Chipper, CLee, CYoung, Cespedes) caused me to just drop out of first place for the first time in a month.
Help me regain my edge!
Current rankings:
R(4th) HR(2nd) RBI(2nd) SB(3rd) AVG(3rd) W(3rd) SV(5th) K(6th) ERA(9th) WHIP(10th)
My team:
C Yadier Molina (StL - C)
1B Paul Goldsmith (Ari-1B)
2B Omar Infante (Mai-2B)
3B David Freese (StL - 3B)
SS Hanley Ramirez (Mia - SS, 3B)
OF Jay Bruce (Cin - OF)
OF Michael Bourn (Atl - OF)
OF Yoenis Cespedes (Oak - OF)
Util Ben Zobrist (TB - 2B,OF)
Util Chris Young (Ari - OF)
BN Pablo Sandoval (SF - 1B,3B)DL
BN Troy Tulowitzki (Col - SS)DL
DL Carl Crawford (Bos - OF)DL
Pitchers
SP CC Sabathia (NYY - SP)
SP Jake Peavy (CWS-SP)
RP Addison Reed (CWS - RP)
RP John Axford (MIl-RP)
P Madison Bumgarner (SF - SP)
P Jeremy Hellickson (TB - SP)
P Johnny Cueto (Cin - SP)
BN AJ Burnett (Pit-SP)
BN Scott Downs (LA-RP)
BN Brian Fuentes (Oak-RP)
BN Dale Thayer (SD-RP)

WW:
Bats:Chipper Jones(Atl-3B), K Nieuwenheis(NYM-OF), MSaunders(Sea-OF),CHohnson(Hou-3B),SHairston(NYM-OF), CMaybin(SD-OF), JPierre(Phi-OF), MScutaro(COL-2B,SS), GBeckham(CWS-2B), WMiddlebrooks(Bos-3B), TWigginton(Phi-1B,3B,OF), MMorland(Tex-1B,OF), DNava(Bos-OF),GBlanco(SF-OF),DEspinosa(Was-2B), QBerry(Det-OF), MAdams(StL-1B), ARamirex(CWS-SS), CCrisp(Oak-OF), Chisenhall(Cle-3B)
Arms: JVargas(Sea-SP), BLincoln(Pit-P), FPaulino(KC-P), TMilone(Oak-SP), MBuehrle(Mai-SP), JParker(Oak-SP), AHarang(LAD-SP),KMillwood(Sea-SP), BChen(KC-SP), League/Wilhemsen/Pryor(Sea-RP), BMcCarthy(Oak-SP),DSmyly(Det-SP), ACobb(TB-SP), TBauer(Ari-SP)
Moves?
I think Zobrist, Thayer, Fuentes, Thayer, and Downs are all expendable.

I am thinking of dropping Zobrist, Thayer, and Downs and picking up
Chipper (had him before and he helped me dominate HR, AVG, and RBI), TBauer(please call up soon Ari), and Scutaro/Wigginton/Aams/Paulino/Buehrle/Parker/McCarthy, or Wilhelmsen.(help me pick one)

Chipper has always concerned me because even when he is healthy he'll spend a day here and there on the bench for regular rest. I like Middlebrooks when/if Youk gets traded. For K's, consider Paulino. For saves, consider Wilhelmsen.

Man. I would keep Zobrist because of his multiple position eligibility and when he's on he can be solid. At least keep him on the bench as a backup or something. The only other advice I have for you is pick up Trevor Bauer NOW! His promotion is imminent and he'll probably be up in the next week or so. For the most part, just wait until you get healthy. I wouldn't worry about first place as it's not even the all-star break yet. Good luck!! ;-D

with Hanley, Tulo and Infante you seem set in middle infield. Howd you get all 3 in a 12 team league? amazing

id grab Middlebrooks for the season. Use Chipper when he's healthy and maybe Nava while he's hot..but drop when better stuff appears.

I already stashed Bauer so i endorse that move.

Im not so in love with crawford. maybe you could package him with cueto in a 2-1 deal for a better piece?
