What Should I do?

Postby John » Tue Jul 15, 2003 6:16 pm

I Will Help Your Team If You Help Mine!!

I'm currently in 3rd place, 9 games back of 2nd, 35 games back of 1st in a 12 person yahoo head to head division. Its a 27 player roster with these variables:

R H HR RBI SB BB TB AVG IP W CG SV K HLD ERA WHIP

I ususally lose in ERA, WHIP, and SB.

BATTERS:

C Phillips, Jason (C, 1B-NYM)
1B Conine, Jeff (1B-Bal)
2B Castillo, Luis (2B-Fla)
3B Batista, Tony (3B-Bal)
SS Tejada, Miguel (SS-Oak)
OF Gonzalez, Luis (LF-Ari)
OF Jenkins, Geoff (LF-Mil)
OF Walker, Larry (RF-Col)
Util Alou, Moises (LF-ChC)
Util Hidalgo, Richard (RF-Hou)
Bench Burnitz, Jeromy (RF, CF-NYM)
DL Sweeney, Mike

PITCHERS
SP Lima, Jose (SP, RP-KC)
SP Escobar, Kelvim (RP, SP-Tor)
RP Rivera, Mariano (RP-NYY)
RP Farnsworth, Kyle (RP-ChC)
P Worrell, Tim (RP-SF)
P Quantrill, Paul (RP-LA)
P Cormier, Rheal (RP-Phi)
P Speier, Justin (RP-Col)
Bench Washburn, Jarrod (SP-Ana)
Bench Trachsel, Steve (SP-NYM)
Bench Gonzalez, Jeremi (SP-TB)
Bench Ohka, Tomo (SP-Mon)
Bench Rogers, Kenny (SP-Min)
Bench May, Darrell (SP, RP-KC)
Bench Lidle, Cory (SP-Tor)
Bench Schilling, Curt (SP-Ari)

Do you think I should try to trade Larry Walker and keep in Burnitz? Walker has been doing as well as I hoped and it seems like Burnitz might be on a roll.

Also, Sweeney is coming back from the DL while conine is putting up some impressive numbers. Should I try to use him for a trade when Sweeney's back?

Should I keep Lidle? He is ruining my ERA each week and has given up 6 runs or more in his last 3 starts.

I know I have some pretty bad pitchers but its a 27 person league so most players are taken. Think I could trade 2 of my bad pitchers for a decent one?

Thanks

yea, your SP sucks. look to deal tejada and conine. and then you might try to deal quanity for quality w/ your starters. deal a few starting pitchers for one good one. someone who wants to beef up there Ks by getting more innings might do it. and, i hope there is a playoff in your league cuz theres no way your gonna catch the first place guy in regular season.

yea ur pitching does suck, at least schilling is coming back.

i would drop some of your crapple pitchers, i see that you hate lidle, and scout the waiver wire for super prospects or decent pitchers that are playing crappy teams. FOr example, see if you can pick up Harden who is supposed to be good.

If you need stolen bases, maybe you should deal conine and an ok pitcher for pierre or someone?
