What else to do...WHIR!

Postby Los_Dodgers » Tue May 02, 2006 2:21 am

Hey guys, my team is doing well right now, and I am currently in first place, but I was wondering what else there was to do in order to improve my team. What stat categories should I pay more attention to? Things may seem a little off, but that's because I'm in a 20 category league, so saves are undervalued and things such as holds are valuable. The individual categories are: R, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, PO, A, E, AVG, IP, W, L, SV, H, BB, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP
10 Team Head to Head League
Here is my team:
C: Jason Varitek
1b: Ryan Howard
2b: Chase Utley
ss: Derek Jeter
3b: David Wright
OF: Bobby Abreu
OF: Carl Crawford
OF: Adam Dunn
Util: Garrett Atkins
Util: Chris Shelton ( I am not trading Chris Shelton. He is no longer hot, and his value is decreasing daily. I need him for the putouts, and he is very helpful in many categories. Please suggest something other than me selling him high.
BN: Randy Winn

SP: Jake Peavy
SP: Felix Hernandez
SP: Freddy Garcia
SP: John Patterson
SP: Cliff Lee
SP: Jason Schmidt
SP: Jeremy Bonderman
RP: Derrick Turnbow
RP: Armando Benitez
RP: Francisco Liriano
RP: Juan Rincon
RP: Dan Wheeler.

Thanks for all the help, guys.

You're in 1st place...you worry a lot :-b. I honestly have no suggestions. Not really any offense holes, Glaus is coming around, as is Crawford...Howard still isn't doing a lot but I think you have to wait it out. Hard to tell what your weak cats are without seeing your standings.

Your rotation is solid despite Peavy's early season struggles and Patterson on the DL. Schilling is still performing, Webb is Webb, Felix has nowhere to go but up really, and Schmidt/Bonderman are doing better as well. 2 closers, although Benitez isn't exactly solid, 3 great holds guys...

Oh yeah, trade Shelton...j/k. And why do I always end up posting right before/after you in all my threads? Same time 'o the night visitors I spose.

You may want to try and shop Crawford if you are getting Reyes. Seems like you might be able to get a top flight starter or closer. You can never have too many of either. Other than that, I you have a solid team.
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

That trade really solidified your team. You look very balanced. Good Luck!

I like your team a lot....I think you will see a lot of improvement if you sit tight - primarily out of carl crawford...he's having a slow start but be patient and I think you will have a great shot at the title

Sometimes the best thing for a manger to do is just sit back and relax and not overmanage. That is what I think you need to do in this situation.
