Is it time to panic?

Postby DirtDawg » Sun Apr 30, 2006 10:19 am

I know its only April/May, but I'm falling behind in RBI.

My OF situation is not good and I have been mixing in the latest hot bum of the week.

I am in good shape power wise (7th out of 10), but I am already 40 rbi behing the leader.

What should I do?

you pitching is definetly weak..but schmidt just had a nice outing so that is good news for you...you have a lot of really good offensive players: bay, teix, young, ramirez, dunn the list goes on...i would try to trade some of that for another solid ace or A solid ace since im not so sure felix can count as that yet

I have bad luck when it comes to signatures that the person either gets traded or hurt...in this case I hope he gets traded.

Felix will turn it around, but I agree your pitching is your potential weakness. Gagne shoud be back in 3-4 weeks so if he's healthy that could give you a big bump - but still once Huff gets back I may try to pull a 2 for 1 (Huff + one of your SP's) to upgrade a starting pitching spot.

I wouldn't worry yet...

Based on the number of players on your roster, I'm thinking that you're in a very deep league. That said, it'd be hard to find an available player who will be a major upgrade. Also, with rosters that large you'll be able to make up 40 RBIs.

I like the previous advice for you about trying to package for an ace starter. BTW, I also have F. Hernandez and am feeling your pain there.

Good luck!

the teams in my league are weird. I guess you could say we playce offense and saves higher than SP. the past 5 years i've been able to use spot starting and hold up well against the other teams. this is the first year i even drafted starters.

anyway, my OF is what I was worried about.
