Do you think Im ok?

Scoring Style: Rotisserie/Category

3B- A.Ramirez (.238)
SS- J.Rollins (.241)

DL- D.Lee (Around ASB return)
SP- D.Willis
SP- B.Zito
SP- J.Smoltz
SP- C C Sabathia
RP- J.Nathan

BN- D.Davis
BN- C.Young
BN- B.Howry (Dempster could be losing his job)
BN- T.Glavine
BN- F.Cabrera (Grab and stash future closer, Insurance for Wickman)

As you see - My OF is pretty bad. Im just playing the hot bats off the FA like Green,Brynes,and Mench. Hunter and Dye have been doing good this year. Here are some notable FA's

G.Anderson
C.Barmes
B.broussard
R.Cano
S.Casey
M.Sweeney
W.Pena
Jered Weaver

Heres how I rank so far out of 12 teams.

RUNS 5.0
HR 5.5
RBI 4.0
SB 9.0
AVG 1.0
WINS 5.0
SAVES 7.5
Ks 7.0
ERA 12.0
WHIP11.0

That's good for 67 points and 6th rank. Im on pace to make the Max IP just fine as well.

Any trades I should look for? What about free agents to look for?

Personally, I was thinking of trading SP for an OF bat and then wait for my guys to pick it up.

One thing Im going to do Is drop Howry and pick someone up - Dempster came in today and saved it, so it looks like his job is safe

I would move Jimmy Rollins, he isnt all that great in my book. Sounds like you should try and do what you can to get someone like Michael Young or Ichiro Suzuki. Hold onto Aramis Ramirez and Jason GIambi, they will be just fine. You could really use a power hitting OF. Your team should turn it around, but I am not sure if this exact team will be good enough to win it, you need to make a couple of deals to improve on the the statistics you are lacking in.

thanks for the help with mine - you have a very solid IF and your OF will be better now that crisp is back. willis/zito/sabathia/smoltz is a very solid rotation and you have some very good RPs too. I think you could look to improve on the part of your outfield that doesnt include dye and crisp to help your power numbers, but I think you will be fine in the coming months with this team.

Yeah, I really hope my infield can start picking up the pace. When Derrek Lee returns, Giambi moves to UTIL and my OF becomes Hunter,Dye,Crisp.

id say use sabathia for some offensive help. hes on a hot streak but has been very off and on in the past, usually a somewhat high era. use him to get a good outfielder for byrnes or green.

Hey, our teams are similar. Your IF is very nice, especially after Lee gets back. But, you OF could use an upgrade. I would package an OF and a SP (maybe Zito or Smoltz) for some pop in your OF and then pick up Weaver if you can. Good luck and thanks for responding to my post.

Thanks, I made a try at shopping Zito earlier - but this league is very tough to trade in. I really cant wait for Lee to return, because that moves Giambi to UTIL and Hunter to the OF to make it Dye,Hunter,Crisp as OF.

Infact, I believe I tried to package Hunter and Zito for Sheffield I believe. It almost got done and Im glad it didnt with Sheff out.
