Looking at a playoff spot? Good moves so far?

Postby ocmusicjunkie » Thu Jul 07, 2005 7:45 pm

I've done lots of wheeling and dealing after a bad draft. I'm something like nine games out of sixth (the last playoff spot). It's a 12-team, non-keeper, h2h 5x5 league. Give me some input on how my team compares to the start of the season, and if I might actually hope to move into the playoffs now.

Team now:
C- Estrada
1b - Pujols
2b - Kennedy
3b - Chavez
SS - Crosby
OF - Mench
OF - Dunn
OF - MCab
Util - Taveras
BN - Freel

SP - Morris
SP - Harden
SP - Haren
SP - Ollie
SP - Lawrence
SP - Lowry
SP - Zito
SP - Blanton
SP - W Miller
RP - T Jones
RP - Batista
RP - Street
DL - Hudson
DL - Bedard

Team on opening day:
C - Estrada
1b - Pujols
2b - Freel
3b - Lowell
SS - Jeter
OF - Maggs
OF - Drew
OF - Ford
Util - Mike Sweeney
BN - Giambi
BN - Swisher

SP - Hudson
SP - Ollie
SP - Harden
SP - Zito
SP - W Miller
SP - Day
SP - Haren
SP - Blanton
SP - Luke Hudson
RP - Izzy
RP - Batista[/b]
Help please:

Harden- 2.15 ERA, 7.61 K/9
Peavy - 2.89 ERA, 10.10 K/9

I think you have done a good job so far. Your offense is a ton better. Do you lose SB category regularly with Freel hurt. I doubt Taveras really carries you. I think that is where you need to make a decision. You might look to deal on Freel and Taveras to someone looking for SBs and concentrate on winning the other 9 categories.

Try to balance it out a little more. Try to move some of those SP's for a package of speed and some solid closers. I know pitching's where it's at, but you definitely need some more closers. You've got good power, but my guess is that you need some help with the AVG and SB's and SV's.

your team looks much improved. your outfield is really strong too. however, first of all, id drop wade miller. i had him pegged for a big 2nd half and he started out nice but id drop him until he shows some consistency. as some others have said you're in need of some sbs. look for speed on the waiver wire - maybe someone foolish dropped pierre early on? he could be huge in the 2nd half.
