My Hitting is awesome - my pitching sucks. Help!

Postby Quadron » Tue Jun 21, 2005 12:10 pm

I'm in a 10 team h2h league 5x5 yahoo scoring, etc.

I'm in 4th place, and its pretty obvious that my pitching is the weak point of my team. What should I do to improve? Any players I should sell high on?

C M. Piazza (NYM - C,1B)
1B M. Teixeira (Tex - 1B)
2B M. Giles (Atl - 2B)
3B F. López (Cin - 2B,3B,SS)
SS R. Furcal (Atl - SS)
OF V. Guerrero (LAA - OF)
OF M. Ramírez (Bos - OF)
OF C. Lee (Mil - OF)
Util D. Ortiz (Bos - 1B)
BN V. Wells (Tor - OF)
BN M. Lowell (Fla - 3B)

SP R. Oswalt (Hou - SP)
SP A. Eaton (SD - SP)
SP R. Harden (Oak - SP)
RP M. Rivera (NYY - RP)
RP J. Isringhausen (StL - RP)
P C. Lee (Cle - SP)
P Y. Brazobán (LAD - RP)
P K. Benson (NYM - SP)
BN C. Young (Tex - SP)
BN J. Weaver (LAD - SP)
BN C. Wang (NYY - SP)

The following pitchers are on the FA list:
Harang, Westbrook, Haren, Kazmir, Blanton, Lackey, Davies, Byrd, Redman, Rusch, Chacin.

I would pick up Haren. He's been getting better with each start, and with Harden back, he'll be matched up against worse starting pitchers (assuming Harden goes back to his role as the #2 starter). Also, with Chavez heating up and Crosby back, it looks like the A's will finally get him run support.

i agree with peavy&co. with picking up haren, but also if possible i would pick-up westbrook. he is turning things around along with the rest of the indians.

I'd drop Lowell for Haren immediately he's showing no signs of coming alive. I could see them calling someone up to play his position and give him some time off. IE - Boone on Seattle

Also looking at your OF and Util spots. Does Vernon Wells ever play?

I mean Teix and Ortiz are locks to play everyday at 1B and Util. Your OF is stack with Vlad, Carlos Lee, and Manny who all warrant immediate play everyday. So you have Vernon Wells who's knocking in HRs and is hot but still doesn't play on your team?

Is there a better sell high candidate for you then him right now? I think not. Float him around see what pitcher you can get for a power OF. You won't be disappointed. Sell high on the fact he's had a good June.

Good Luck

If Vernon's not playing then you could probably trade him for a pretty good SP or RP.
