Trying to hold first...what to do? Leave link, WHIR

Postby andrew14 » Fri Jul 22, 2005 10:12 am

I'm in first by about 4 games in H2H, and I'd really like to stay there. Is there anything you see that my team needs, any changes, trade ideas, etc., that will keep me in first or extend my lead? As always, I'll help anyone who replies in return.
Note: Bradley's returning this weekend, so any advice about moving him into the lineup, trading away who he replaces, etc., would also be nice.

EDIT: I almost always win all the offensive cats, except Ks against. I usually win saves and Ks, and ratios I'm 50-50. I don't do so well with wins and losses, though, but I don't really know how to remedy that. I'm wondering if my offense will continue to dominate down the stretch, and if my pitching will improve or if I need help on either side...

It's kind of hard to just make suggestions without knowing a little bit more about your situation (e.g. what categories you normally win, lose, where you think your team needs help, etc.)

Obviously, your SP is, for lack of a more descriptive word, gooooood.

I would think that in a 14 team league, someone is going to be looking for closers, and you could certainly trade one, as you have pitching depth to spare. As for who to put Bradley in for, a) I'd wait until he proves he's really back, and then put him in for Taveras, b/c even with Taveras, unless you feel that you really need him to win SB, in which case, don't worry about putting Bradley back in, b/c you should have enough power to carry you through.

Good luck, and thanks for your help!!!

With Figgins, Abreu, and Taveras, are you heavy on the steals? If so, you might consider moving Taveras for another power hitter. ... p?t=149430
