Underachievers..what to do? Always WHIR

Postby nakgxf » Thu May 11, 2006 4:58 pm

Started out good, but as of late have been losing. Last two weeks I haven't even come close, and have dropped to 4th out of 10. Any trades or moves I should make?

Here's the roster.

I. Rodriguez
C. Utley
J. Reyes
T. Iguchi
M. Ensberg
P. Burrell
M. Ramirez
K. Mench
C. Tracy
R. Hernandez
A. Kearns

A. Harang
E. Bedard
B. Wagner
T. Gordon
D. Haren
R. Dempster
F. Garcia
J. Garland
C. Carpenter
C. Young

League Info:
Yahoo head-to-head
Batting: R, H, HR, RBI, SB, BB, TB, E, AVG
Pitching: W, L, CG, SO, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

Hanley, C. Blake, JD Drew, E. Encarnacion, F. Rodney, D. Bush, J. Putz, Verlander, Koronka, Lidle on the FA list...make a move?

Any trade suggestions?

This team is decent. As for underachievers vs. overrated. I think Tad Iguchi is a little overrated and a mediocre option at best. I also feel Mench is playing well over his head right now and you might want to try selling him high. You could use a little starting pitching help but you aren't in dire need or anything. Oh I would also look to trade Pudge with Ramon Hernandez on your team. He is just as good if not better at this point. Pudge still commands some name value.

Thanks for your help on mine.

Your team is ok. You could use a better 1B and move Utley to 2B. After Carpenter you don't have an ace or #2 SP, but otherwise an ok team.

Ramon Hernandez is one of the best catchers in the league.

I agree with the post above...sell high on Mench if you can and deal Pudge...Hernandez is better and you can probably get decent value out of Pudge...thanks for the help

keep Ramon - hitting in BAL - and he is a top 5 catcher, maybe top 3 IMO.

Mench's palying time is now dwindling - not sure what you could get for him.

I may try to move Pudge for an upgrade fro Iguchi?

I would also think about dropping Garcia for Verlander. Agree though with using Utley at 2nd and then picking up a another 1b

I would drop Bedard before dropping Garcia at this point. Definitely keep Ramon Hernandez.
