Postby Airzoom32 » Mon May 08, 2006 3:36 pm

I am in 14th out of 16....a guy who ONLY has D-Backs players is ahead of me. I have won this league 4 years running, but have never started off this bad, what do I need to do!? I have never been so frustrated/depressed about a fantasy baseball team. coming into the year I felt pretty good, but all these DL trips and underperforming is killing me. I know its early and I can still make it into the playoffs....BUT WHAT DO I DO!?

C (1) - M. Barrett
1B (1) - Thome
2B (1) - M. Giles
3B (1) - D. Wright
SS (1) - B. Crosby
OF (3) - J. Bay, A. Rowand, C. Patterson
UTL(1) - P. Nevin
Bench - A. Huff
DL - K. Griffey Jr.

SP (2) - Sheets, S. Kazmir
RP (2) - Lidge, M. Gonzalez
P (2) - S. Shields, JJ Putz

you're right, this is not a bad team but w/sheets struggling you really need an ace..any chance someone will take kgriffey, cpatterson, jpatterson off yer hands for a quality starter and maybe some SBs

I really think you have a quality team for a 16 teamer. Pretty sure you will make the playoffs. Griffey is coming back soon (I know, I know, they've been saying that for weeks), so I would try and move either him, Huff, or C. Patterson for an upgrade in pitching, depending on the combination, maybe a 2 for 1 deal with one of your other starters or a straight up deal for a guy that has been struggling like Pettitte. Or maybe a Huff or C. Patterson for D. Davis deal. Don't be shady about it, but if you can get someone who will give you good value for Sheets I would try and move him before his shoulder blows up, maybe for like a Smoltz or something.

Your team looks fine. I wouldn't worry. One area that looks like you can deal from is saves. Putz looks good for a long time, and in a 16 team league 2 closers should be enough. Especially when one of them is lidge.

Maybe try to package a closer with a SP to upgrade at SP, and then pick up another SP from the wire. Just find the guy with the lowest DIPS on the waiver wire and plug him in.
