CAN I CONTEND?...RATE MY TEAM

Postby jss » Mon Jun 27, 2005 9:26 pm

Situation:
I'm in a lame Yahoo Public league (12 teams, 5x5, roto) where [b]NOBODY wants to trade...and I mean NOBODY! It's really driving me crazy and taking all the fun out of it. To make a bad situation worse, I was on vacation during the draft and got stuck with a REALLY bad team. So I've done my best by playing off the wire -- I'm barely in 5th place. I usually play in money leagues, but just didn't have the time this year, so I did this to satisfy my fantasy jones. What a mistake.

What to do:
My gut tells me I should just drop my whole team and not look back, but my competitive side is getting the better of me. So, I'm looking for an out of the box strategy to make it interesting. Unfortunately, I'm only restricted to WW. My goal is to take third place. I'm a realist. I know first is out of the question.

For experts only:
Following is my team and the FA players. Please take a look and recommend potential moves and any other strategies you might have up your sleeve. I'm open to ANYTHING!!! That includes agressive dropping and picking up of all players; high risk and otherwise.

ok here we go


1. you have a very formidable offense, just some players not plyaing up to their potential in the first half, I.E. Berkman, Drew..your only glaring weakness is SS, but I have Hall too and hope he keeps it up


2. Drop F. Thomas for Sizemore, Thomas is only available as utility and that hurts plus he is already starting to cool down...picking up Sizemore is a steal. this kid will score a ton of runs, steal some bases and has some pop in his bat.

3. Drop Sabathia for Blanton....take a peak at Blantons last 5 starts. hes put it together.

4. Drop Pudge for Guillen, Pudge wont be turning it around in the second half, he lost too much weight in the offseason from getting off the juice and he'll never start ahead of Varitek on your team. Guillen is coming off an injury but hes still a stud

5. Drop Byrd for Elarton. Byrd can never keep it together for a full season and Eleraton has the same story as Blanton...outstanding last month, and he plays for a team that will score runs for him.


good luck

I would drop Thee Big Hurt for Mench who is on a roll lately. Also, I would drop Drew for Sizemore.....your team doesn't seem to get a lot of steals. FInally, if there are two DL spots I would pick up Maggs
