Please rate my team... this is my first season

Postby PhillyEagles » Sat May 21, 2005 4:13 pm

I'm in my first fantasy baseball season ever with my friends. To tell you the truth, I didnt even know what an RBI was before a couple of months ago (I think the red sox yankees ALCS games sparked my interest)... well I am in a league with my friends and I would appreciate any help since I still am a huge newbie when it comes to baseball.
This is an 8 team head to head league with 13 categories:
R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG
W, L, SV, K, ER, ERA, WHIP

I am currently in 1st place by a three game margin but I tihnk its just a lot of luck. I would like to know how to improve my team whether it be through trades or pickups. However, I made a blunder by trading M. Young and Myers for Renteria and Zito... stpid trade I was told...

The positions for my league are C, 1B, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util, Util
SP, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P
and minumum 40 innings pitched per week with no waiver time.

Well heres my team:
C B. Inge (Det - C,3B,OF)
1B J. Morneau (Min - 1B)
1B P. Konerko (CWS - 1B)
2B C. Barmes (Col - 2B,SS)
3B E. Chávez (Oak - 3B)
SS É. Rentería (Bos - SS)
OF S. Podsednik (CWS - OF)
OF B. Abreu (Phi - OF)
OF A. Rowand (CWS - OF)
Util C. Floyd (NYM - OF)
Util P. Feliz (SF - 1B,3B,SS,OF)
Util L. Overbay (Mil - 1B)
BN V. Guerrero (LAA - OF)
BN M. Loretta (SD - 2B)
BN M. Cameron (NYM - OF)

Pos Pitchers Edit Opp Status IP W L SV ER K ERA WHIP
SP D. Cabrera (Bal - SP)
SP J. Marquis (StL - SP)
SP J. Vázquez (Ari - SP)
SP D. Lowe (LAD - SP)
RP D. Kolb (Atl - RP)
RP B. Lidge (Hou - RP)
P B. Wickman (Cle - RP)
P C. Cordero (Was - RP)
P B. Zito (Oak - SP)
BN L. Hernández (Was - SP)
BN M. Buehrle (CWS - SP)
DL B. SheetsDL (Mil - SP)

My friends are telling me that my pitching is my weak point and I guess it shows since my ERA and WHIP numbers stink... Another problem that I have now are that Lidge's team is slumping, luckily Chavez just came back, Sheets is injured, Kolb lost his job, and Vlad and Loretta just got injured. So I am miising a couple of key starters and I would like to know what positions to improve on and what are some weak players in my lineup that I should drop for players such as B Chen (Bal SP) or Hawpe (Col OF) Thanks for any help that I recieve as I am an incredible newbie and do not know much about baseball. Thank you.

I'd package Zito, C. Barmes or Klob for an ace. I like lorretta so you should be fine without Barmes. Try to get Schmidt or Harden. Good Luck. ;-D

I'd drop Loretta. Feilz can play a few positions, while Loretta is on the DL and can only play 2 (2nd & UT)
