Barely holding on to 1st place...What should I do?

Postby FantasyFanatic24 » Sun Jun 19, 2005 7:48 am

Any comment's or advice would be appreciated. Keep in mind that I have Harden on the DL, coming back soon and Escobar, but who know's when he'll be back. Thanks a lot.

12 Team, Standard 5x5, H2H, 1 Win, Daily Lineup Changes, No IP Limit
C~Victor Martinez
1B~Mark Teixeira
2B~Placido Polanco (I have Boone on the bench)
3B~Hank Blalock
SS~Michael Young
OF~Corey Patterson
OF~Brian Giles
OF~J.D. Drew
UT~Lew Ford
BN~Bret Boone (because he will be benched for the next couple games)

SP~Jason Schmidt
SP~A.J. Burnett
SP~Brandon Webb
RP~Francisco Cordero
RP~Trevor Hoffman
P~C.C. Sabathia
P~Danny Haren
P~Ricardo Rodríguez
BN~Kyle Davies
BN~Bob Wickman
BN~Mike Gonzalez
BN~Scott Linebrink
DL~Rich Harden (Should be back soon?)
DL~Kelvim Escobar (What else is new?)

P.S.-Many people ask me why I even have Wickman, Linebrink, and Gonzalez in a 5x5. The answer is simply for some extra K's, WHIP, ERA, and possibly the win every once in a while. These pitchers start everyday for me in the "P" spot. Since there is daily lineup changes, I can obviously take one of them out if I have 4 starters one day. So to everyone who may be wondering why, there is your reason.

this might not help, but i would keep playing polanco right now instead of boone. polanco has been great so far in detroit and should stay that way because he is finally out of splitting time with chase utley. this might sound wierd, but i would trade the ice cold-hitting boone to add to your pitching staff and keep the - polanco.

whos a FA right now in your league? i would really think of dropping escobar (3 times on dl this year :-t ). I would also think of dropping boone, hes not doing anything and u could get someone whos doing better right now. If he starts playing well i really dont htink someone is gonna pick him up since in all of my leagues people dropped him and no one has picked him up in over a month of being available. hope this helps ;-D
