Team Help: Am I as bad as I performed Week 1?

Postby Keys Myaths » Sun Apr 09, 2006 10:33 pm

Points based league, weird scoring system. Only a prize for first place (30 percent of the pot), but also a 10% cut for seven OTHER categories, including runs scored, RBI, head to head wins, winning streak, home runs, pitching strikeouts, and pitching wins.

Weird enough...so I'm not necessarily trying to win the whole thing, as trying to win as many categories as I can too. We start 3 pitchers every week, and 1 RP. Their points are awful in our scoring system--average pitchers score less than half what average hitters do.

Team:

Starters:

C Mauer
1B Morneau
2B Kent
3B M. Cabrera
SS Crosby
OF Bay
OF Holliday
OF C. Lee

SP:

Doug Davis
Noah Lowry
Scott Kazmir

RP:

Chad Cordero


Bench:

1B/3B Shea Hillenbrand
SS Carlos Guillen
OF Jose Guillen

SP Joe Blanton (picked up off WW, dropped Radke)
SP A.J. Burnett
SP Zach Duke
RP Jonathan Papelbon (picked up off WW, dropped Ray Durham)
RP Keith Foulke



Players on WW (highest owned, or most added from CBS Sportsline)

Fernando Rodney
Sergio Mitre
Phil Nevin
Valverde, Jose RP ARI 82
Ray, Chris RP BAL 78
Fuentes, Brian RP COL 76
Kendall, Jason C OAK 72
Granderson, Curtis CF DET 71
Green, Shawn RF ARI 71
Radke, Brad SP MIN 69
Gonzalez, Mike RP PIT 69
Rogers, Kenny SP DET 68
Jones, Jacque RF CHC 65
Reitsma, Chris RP ATL 64



Question is, what do I do from here? Am I missing something? Should I be picking up someone? What should I be trying to deal for, or is my bad first week just bad luck? Is my team okay?

I can offer a bit of anectdotal advice and that is that I owned both Mauer and Morneau last year and both were solid producers while healthy, but it always seemed like the Twins are willing to plug in someone if any of their players has the least bit of an ailment or need for rest. I found myself recording a lot of empty lines for Twins hitters last season.

Don't know how helpful that is, but it would lead me to advise you to have a decent backup 1B ready go if you can catch the starting lineups well enough in advance of gametime.

I'm noticing that. Problem is, once we set our lineups for the week, they're set.

That's why I have so many pitchers. We don't have an innings max or anything, so I try to start a lot of two-start pitchers.
