IS THIS TEAM BAD??

Postby Lofunzo » Mon May 02, 2005 3:38 pm

I know that it's still relatively early but this team is in dead last. I have a ton of guys that are starting slow but this is crazy. Here is the team in a 6X6 (with TB and CG) H2H league. I understand that my closers and SB are weak but I expected this team to seriously contend:

C A. Pierzynski (N/A)
1B T. Helton (1)
2B C. Utley (N/A)
3B D. Wright (8)
SS M. Young (5)
OF H. Matsui (6)
OF A. Dunn (7)
OF C. Wilson (21)
Util M. Teixeira (3)
BN L. Castillo (13)
BN L. BerkmanDL (9)

SP - J. Santana (2)
SP - T. Hudson (4)
RP - J. Mesa (11)
RP - M. Herges (N/A)
P - M. Gonzalez (17)
P - J. Rincon (18)
P - L. Hernandez (10)
BN - C.C. Sabathia (14)
BN - Od. Perez (12)
BN - A. Eaton (20)
BN - K. Brown (15)
DL - J. Affeldt (16)

You're pretty deep in pitching and you definately need to upgrade at second. Chase Utley is a good player but he's platooning with Placido Polanco (which I still don't understand....). So he won't give you decent stats on a consistant basis. If you can aquire Marcus Giles or someone of that caliber for some of your pitching you'll be fine. You're closers will last you for right now, but in the near future you should probably look to upgrade at that position too.

See if you can sell high on Sabathia......

Thanks but I just picked up Utley for the time being while Castillo is down. Once my OF heats up, I am thinking of trying to deal 1 of them for Crawford. Good idea??

No, it's not bad. Many of your players are underperforming. Ride it out a bit. What you can do now is trade for what you need--especially steals. Dealing Helton or Teix isn't a bad idea. Or one of your outfielders, as you said, for Crawford.

I wouldn't overreact, though. If it's still like this come June, then worry.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

You shouldnt worry too badly, your teams just underpreforming for the time being..

what i would do is deal Dunn for crawford because when Berkman comes back he can make up for the HR's Dunn has...
also your pitching depth is strong, maybe try to get a well known closer or lyon if someone thinks he wont keep it all year

Thanks for the replies. I should mention that this is a keeper league where we can keep up to 5 players and we are penalized in next year's draft for when we took them this year. In that sense, I probably won't be keeping Helton. 8-o Keep in mind that I took him in the 1st and Tex in the 5th so I will probably be keeping Tex. I will update the roster above to show what round I drafted certain players in.

How many teams? I ask because I would think there's a better free agent option than Craig Wilson. :-?

I'd look at moving Dunn and/or some of your starting pitching depth for the saves/steals you need.

All in all, not a bad team though ;-D . Just some really slow starts from a handful of your guys.

12 teams. I just looked at the WW and noticed Mench is still out there. Is he hurt?? :-o

I will definitely make deals for the present but it's hard to give up being able to keep Dunn at the expense of a 7th round pick next year. :-o
