Sitting in third place... am I over or under achieving?

Postby tinfoilxtouch » Sun Apr 30, 2006 6:50 pm

After this week, I'm going to be 23-16-1 and sitting in third. It's a pretty tight league top to bottom right now. 5x5 h2h with twelve teams. Can I hope to finish near the top of the stack with these guys, or should I make a move or two while I'm ahead?

2b- Utley

Nice roster, I think you are sitting nice and pretty. I'd assume you would soon find your way to the top.

Your offense is great, although Francouer better step it up or he's not really worthy. Your pitching is a bit weak, Zito gets shelled occasionally, Hudson's not looking like his old self quite yet, and the rest of your guys are on/off. Solid relievers...I'd maybe focus on starting pitching.

i would definetly focus on SP, maybe try to move one of your SS for a stud, utley should turn it around soon and francouer seems to come out of his funk today against the mets, you can only hope that carries over, keep us updated with your quest for a sp

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

Your only weakness is your depth in your starting pitching. Like the above poster noted, Zito and Hudson don't appear to be in vintage form anymore. Swisher will more than likely have a nice season but won't approach the numbers he is presently putting up. While you could part with 1 of the 2 All-Star shortstops to get a great SP, try and sell high with Swisher's recent hot bat before moving one of your shortstops. Good luck.
I could be wrong in what I'm saying but I'll be dead before I realize it.
