Why am I in 5th place out of 8????

Postby Rapps5 » Sat May 31, 2003 11:21 am

My team is falling quickly in the rankings, and I'm not sure why. My players are great, but I guess EVERYONE is slumping. I have zero homeruns so far this week!!! Should I be concerned with my current status of 5/8? its an 8 team 5x5 league:
Catcher: Ivan Rodriguez
First Baseman: Jeff Bagwell
Second Baseman: Jose Vidro
Third Baseman: Scott Rolen
Shortstop: Alex Rodriguez
Outfielder: Manny Ramirez
Outfielder: Johnny Damon
Outfielder: Albert Pujols (1B/3B/OF)
Outfielder: Shawn Green
Outfielder: Ryan Klesko (1B/OF)
2B/SS: Luis Castillo (2B)
1B/3B: Paul Loduca (1B/OF/C)
Utility: Jason Kendall (C)
Pitcher: Barry Zito
Pitcher: Matt Morris
Pitcher: Derek Lowe
Pitcher: Wade Miller
Pitcher: Randy Wolf
Pitcher: Keith Foulke
Pitcher: Tim Hudson
Pitcher: Jorge Julio
Pitcher: Scott Williamson
Bench: Randy Johnson (P)*
Bench: Danys Baez (P)
Bench: Mike Williams (P)
DL: Jason Isringhausen (P)*
* = player inactive due to injury

also, Tom Glavine, Octavio Dotel, and David Roberts, are free agents...

Relax, wait for the slumps to end, and shop Kendall. No need to be terribly worried, although adding a bit more speed might be a good idea...

would you reccomend trading Kendall and Baez for an OF, then adding David Roberts for that extra speed? if so, what type of OF should I look for in return for those two? If not, what would you reccomend I do?

Frankly, I'd just ask any owners with weak catchers if they'd be interested in Kendall and see what happens...

Ok, so that's probably not the answer you wanted. Yes, Kendall/Baez might work, but I might try Kendall/Klesko first and try to land a true stud.
