Team is Struggling...Please Help

Postby iavikefn » Wed Jun 08, 2005 10:33 am

My team is struggling mightily right now. I play in a 10 team, H2H league on cbssportsline.com. I need advice on what to do with my team.

Here is the team that I drafted:

C Jorge Posada
1B Justin Morneau
2B Marcus Giles
3B Alex Rodriguez
SS Michael Young
OF Carl Crawford
OF Manny Ramirez
OF Magglio Ordonez
U Travis Hafner

Bench Chipper Jones
Bench Pedro Feliz
Bench Dallas McPherson
Bench Aaron Boone

P Curt Schilling
P Roy Oswalt
P Brad Radke
P Rich Harden
P Carlos Zambrano
P Danys Baez
P Braden Looper

Bench Shingo Takatsu
Bench Mike Adams

Since the draft I have made these moves:

1. Add Joel Pineiro, drop Mike Adams
2. Trade Magglio Ordonez and Michael Young for Carlos Lee and Edgar Renteria
3. Add Dave Bush, drop Aaron Boone
4. Trade Chipper Jones for Roy Halladay
5. Add Kevin Millwood, drop Dave Bush
6. Add Adam Eaton, drop Joel Pineiro
7. Add Miguel Batista, drop Dallas McPherson
8. Add Junior Spivey, drop Kevin Millwood (when Giles got hurt)
9. Add Gustavo Chacin, drop Miguel Batista
10. Add Scot Shields, drop Junior Spivey
11. Add Dan Haren, drop Shingo Takatsu
12. Add Jason Lane, drop Scot Shields
13. Trade Gustavo Chacin and Carlos Lee for Ichiro Suzuki (when Lee was struggling)
14. Drop Dan Haren
15. Add Bob Wickman
16. Add Derrick Turnbow
17. Trade Adam Eaton and Jason Lane for Joe Mauer
18. Add Josh Towers, drop Bob Wickman
19. Add Scott Kazmir, drop Josh Towers
20. Add Brad Halsey
21. Add Troy Percival, drop Derrick Turnbow
22. Add Chris Reitsma, drop Brad Halsey

So, now my team looks like this:

C Jorge Posada
1B Pedro Feliz
2B Marcus Giles
3B Alex Rodriguez
SS Edgar Renteria
OF Carl Crawford
OF Manny Ramirez
OF Ichiro Suzuki
U Travis Hafner

Bench Joe Mauer
Bench Justin Morneau (both hurt)

P Danys Baez
P Roy Halladay
P Scott Kazmir
P Braden Looper
P Roy Oswalt
P Brad Radke
P Carlos Zambrano

Bench Chris Reitsma
Bench Rich Harden
Bench Troy Percival
Bench Curt Schilling

I desperately need suggestions about what to do with my team. I have lost 3 in a row, and have fallen 3 games out of first place. Please give me some suggestions/advice on what to try to do to improve my team, and get them back into the playoff race. Thanks.

Ichiro maybe ranked high but he hasnt been producing. Try trading him for a better first and second baseman. Others may not realize Ichiro isnt as good as he is ranked.

Lemme know wat u think of mine.

i might look into dealing halladay. I look for him to decline and he has huge value right now since he has been pitching so well. Sell High! ;-D Then you could get maybe another ace or maybe convince someone to package two players for halladay. In my league you could probably pull it off :-D
