This hitting lineup: Don't panic?

Postby BritSox » Tue Apr 19, 2005 1:11 pm

5x5 Roto

J. Varitek (Bos - C)
1B T. Helton (Col - 1B)
2B T. Iguchi (CWS - 2B)
3B E. Chavez (Oak - 3B)
SS J. Rollins (Phi - SS)
OF C. Lee (Mil - OF)
OF B. Giles (SD - OF)
OF A. Dunn (Cin - 1B,OF)
Util J. Lane (Hou - OF)
BN A. Pierzynski (CWS - C)
BN S. Finley (LAA - OF)

I'm currently last in AVG, tenth of twelve in R, above average in SB and bottom half in the other two. My pitching owns (have Prior, Schmidt, Sheets) but Lee, Giles and Dunn (until yesterday) coupled with a below-par start from Helton have combined to hold me back.

Do I need to trade for a big stud somewhere, or am I best to hold fast? Am I too weighted towards RBI and too little to runs? Or is it just that I'm having a below-par coupla weeks?

Bump.

Guys, I've commented on at least six other teams today.

I am not terribly knowledgable yet, will get there though :)
However, I would give it at least another week, Helton is too good to slump for too long, Lee should be fine, Dunn won't help you much in average but he will get you some runs.

You're gonna be fine. Helton, Chavez, Lee and Dunn will all break out of the early slumps they're in. On paper your team looks very good. Just give it time and you should be competing at the top of your league.

Can you take a look at my team?http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=116619

Patience. Most hitters are around 50-60 AB's barely 10% of the season.
Baseball is a marathon, not a sprint.
