first team ever..how's she look?

Postby jw2960 » Fri Apr 15, 2005 11:19 am

when i drafted i really didnt even know a thing about scoring or anything. i had a little advice from my friend who has played before but it really wasnt anything. my league is still settling out as far as rankings go and i have placed between 1st and 7th, mainly around 3rd. i think that i need to add another SP or RP, or both. this is due to me ranking in the top 3 in era and whip but lacking in w, l, so.

here is my lineup:
C estrada
1 helton
2 currently a polanco/utley platoon but im waiting for kaz to clear waivers, he will then be my everyday 2nd baseman
3 rolen- he better heat up soon
ss rollins
of abreu
of finley
of burrel
of mench
of crisp
of nady

sp sheets
sp beuhrle
sp livan hernandez
sp mulder
sp gavin floyd
sp millwood
sp danny haren
rp shinjo takatsu
rp billy wagner

so where did i screw up? and i would like to unload finley and mench for some pitching, which pitchers are around that level for trades?

thanks alot

Not a bad team. And wins will come. I might try to move Floyd, as that is a bad park for a rookie pitcher, and he will probably be the odd man out when Padilla returns soon. Nady is hitting well, but he'll start losing abs this week when Roberts comes back also. As long as he is hitting, he'll get some games in, but he'll miss at least two a week in all liklihood. For Finley and Mench, with both of them not hitting very well right now, you're not likely to get a better pitcher than any you have at the moment. If they do, you're still not going to get a stud.

Out of idle curiosity, are you a Phillie fan?

philly

Postby jw2960 » Fri Apr 15, 2005 1:43 pm

did the 6 or so phillies, plus millwood and rolen give away the fact that im a philly fan?

i figured to get 3 starts out of floyd. but i was hoping someone would have a few bad starts for the phills and keep floyd in the rotation...he's gonna be good once he gets some starts under him. that sucks with Nady, for some reason i thought he was an everyday player when i got him.
who would be a good from this list of free agent pitchers to pick up once floyd goes back to the minors?
sorry for all the stats in there too but there is no easy way to get rid of it.

It was a big clue, yep. :-)

Out of that list, I'd probably go with Eaton. He pitches in a pitcher's park, and for a team that will win games. He won't hurt your ERA or WHIP.

One way to get rid of all those stats in a hurry is to use Excel if you have it. Once you paste in all the data, you can select the first column (just the player's names) and paste that selection into notepad. This is presuming you are on a pc, same would be true for any mac spreadsheet and text editor programs. I do notice, with my lineup, that the first column is merged with another. I selected that first column, then go into "format cells" and there you can click on the merge cells option box, which actually selects it (in my experience it is always a filled in box which means some of the column is merged and checking the box makes all of them merged) and then you can uncheck it. Confusing enuf? Sorry. Just tryin to help.
