Can this team be improved anymore?

Postby HillenbrandOwns » Sat Jul 23, 2005 3:53 pm

14 team yahoo h2h standard 5x5 scoring mid season

C- Vmart
1B- Giambi
2B- Figgins
3B- Hillenbrand
SS- Felip Lopez
OF- A. Dunn
OF- Damon
OF- Brady Clark
UTL- Rowand
DL- Thome

Starters-

Cliff Lee
Haren
Duke
Patterson
Peavy
Bonderman
Herang
either Webb or Lowe (I haven't decided which one i wanna pick up yet)

Closers-

Dempster
Macdougal
Street
Farnsworth

My original first baseman was Adam Dunn, but I moved him to my OF spot when i dropped Willy Mo to pick up Giambi..which has worked out great now

I always say I wanna improve on 3B but Shea always does something to change my mind

I orignally drafted 6 closers, but I traded Brunny to get Rowand and traded Izzy to get Patterson

right now i'm in 6th place and 9 games behind first, but right now i'm owning my opponent this week 9-1 and i'm only down in Ks, but that should change with Lee, Duke and Bonderman going this weekend.

I always have a good week but usually at the weekend i start to lose points (like last week i went from 7-3 to 4-7 because the other guy had Carpenter on the last night which passed me in pretty much all the pitching catagories)

can anyone see any other flaw in my lineup that I can try to patch up to make my team unstoppable? Leave a link when you throw in your two cents so I can help you out.

Thanks. ;-D

i'm kinda new at the fantasy baseball thing, but I know fantasy sports in general pretty well, and I think F. Lopez was a one half wonder, I dont think he keeps it up in the second half. Also, I would think about trading Dunn for someone who doesnt strike out as much.

wtf? Dunn gets tons of dingers....so what if he strikes out a lot? that was horrible advice...and felipe lopez is no one half wonder..do yourself a favor and actually know what you are talking about before you give someone advice, you don't lose anything if a player strikes out dummy.

I'd pick up Webb, wait for Thome to come back hitting and trade one of your 1B for an decent SP. ;-D

In standard 5x5 Adam Dunn can really hurt you, even more so in h2h. He walks and strikes out a lot so it is possible that he goes something like 3-20 in a week. He's hitting like 6th or 7th in that Reds lineup no one is going to drive him in even if he walks. Keep a close eye on VMart he doesn't play everyday although he puts up numbers lately he still looks terrible in a game.

I agree Lopez is the real deal. I would try to move Dunn for a more consistent hitter. Try packaging MacDougal with one of your players to get an upgrade, perhaps for another SP. You are going to be a great shape to win saves every week with or without MacDougal.

Good luck down the stretch.

You made much more sense than Dan did but no way i'm trading Dunn. I have guys like Damon, Lopez and Clark for my average. In fact, I never lost in average for a week all season yet, so i'm doing fine, and i've only lost once in home runs, so Dunn is working out for me.

Thanks guys ;-D

I guess that would explain why he is 4th in the league in runs.
