6 games up in 1st place- any moves needed b4 deadline? WHIR

Postby bjm97 » Mon Aug 01, 2005 10:25 am

10 team H2H non keeper league with daily roster moves. Lots of cats that we count, both pitching/batting. Catagories- R, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, TBA, Average- pitching- IP, W, L, CG, SHO, SV, K, ERA, WHIP.

I think this team is set and that barring some rash of injuries this should be the team to beat. With that being said I am always looking to improve my team. Any suggestions? Thanks!

C- Kendall
1st Delgado
2nd Soriano
SS- Young
3rd Chavez
OF Manny, Ichiro, Bay
Util- Shelton
BN Gonzo, Lowell

SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P,
SP- Santana, Prior, Burnett, C Zambrano, Vazquez, Young (going to drop him for either Patterson, Millwood, or Lackey)
RP- F Cordero, Ryan, Turnbow, Street

A few thoughts

C- Kendall (Is Shelton eligible here? In some leagues, he is)
1st Delgado (good here)
2nd Soriano (ditto)
SS- Young (ditto)
3rd Chavez (I might try to trade Chavez while he is swinging a good stick for someone better -- maybe package Young, Chavez, and one of your relievers for a stud 3B (A. Ramirez, etc).
OF Manny, Ichiro, Bay (Good here)
Util- Shelton (I like Shelton)
BN Gonzo, Lowell (Bench is maybe your weakest)

SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P,
SP- Santana, Prior, Burnett, C Zambrano, Vazquez, Young (going to drop him for either Patterson, Millwood, or Lackey)

Go with Lackey -- is striking out a batter an inning, and has been solid thus far -- take away three bad starts, and we are talking a possible 12 game winner with 100 plus K's.

Go with Lackey. Otherwise, I think you look deep.

Well I grabbed Patterson as Lackey was claimed moments before. Not sure I completely understand trading Chavez for a Ramirez. Do you really think from here on out there will be that significant of a difference between the two players. Maybe with a much better leadoff hitter (Lawton) it makes more sense. We have tried to no avail to deal a closer for just about anything. Especially with a few decent options on the WW noone is interested in any of our closers. Shelton is not elgible in our league at catcher or moving him there would be a great idea. Gosh I was fairly psyched to have someone putting up Gonzo number on my bench. With my trade mid last month- Dunn/Schilling/Wood/Sabathia/Brazoban for Bay/Ichiro/Prior, I thought my team was set. Would anyone suggest droping Lowell for Kearns, Lawton, or Francoeur?
