Too soon to panic - dropping like a rock.

Postby Smileyman9 » Mon May 08, 2006 2:40 pm

My season started out with promise that is slowly dying. Currently I'm in 9th place - can't wait much longer for my team to produce...
Any suggestions?

12 Teams, Roto, 10 Player Keeper
Hitting (R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BA, OPS)

C - Michael Barrett (C)
1B - David Ortiz (1B)
2B - Craig Biggio (2B) (Picked up while Brian Roberts on DL)
SS - Hanley Ramierz (SS)
3B - Morgan Ensberg (3B)
LF - Randy Winn (RF/CF/LF) (Slower starter?)
CF - Carlos Beltran (CF)
RF - Jay Gibbons (RF/1B)
UTIL - Jason Giambi (1B)
Bench -
Edwin Encarnación (3B) , Shawn Green (RF,CF), Bobby Crosby (SS)

DL Brian Roberts(2B), Rocco Baldelli (CF), Cesar Izturis (SS)

Hitting Notes: Suprisingly leading HR/OPS/Triples, doing well in doubles...dead last in singles (person in 11th has 40 more then me!)
Bobby Crosby is first on the chopping block if I have to make a waiver move.

Pitching
(Wins, Saves, Holds, Ks, ERA, WHIP, K/BB TB) Innings Cap 1525

SP Carlos Zambrano
SP Felix Hernandez
SP Andy Pettitte
SP Scott Kazmir
SP Kenny Rogers

Closers
RP Huston Street
RP BJ Ryan

MidRp
SP/P Joe Kennedy
RP Scott Linebrink
RP Scott Shields
RP Rafael Soriano
SP/P Elmer Dessens
RP Fernando Cabrera

DL
SP Mark Prior
SP Zack Greinke

Pitching Notes: My staff which I was so proud of has done a lot to disappoint me so far. I knew I'd have issues getting wins...but jeeze. I'm hurting with saves, I'm unwilling to pay the steep price for a closer - so I've compesated by taking over the holds category.
Fernando Cabrera has been on my bench and is currently my favorite for waiver wire fodder. I'm somewhat holding out hope that as time progresses he'll improve.
I'm thinking great RP is very very very important in this league, more so then medicore pitchers bcause of the innings cap.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
