How is THIS lineup doing so badly?

Postby Gwyddbwyll » Mon Jun 19, 2006 5:45 pm

C - Javy Lopez
1B - David Ortiz
2B - Jose Lopez
3B - Aramis Ramirez
SS - Jhonny Peralta
CF - Coco Crisp
OF - Ichiro
OF - Manny Ramirez
Util - Jim Thome
BN - Scott Podsednik

SP - Prior, Verlander, Harang, Lowe, Escobar, Cain, Billingsley
RP - M.Gonzalez, Linebrink, Soriano, Guardado

Okay the pitchers are a mediocre squad but isnt that a batting lineup that ought to take you into the playoffs?? Still only 11th out of 14 grrr.

Your hitting is good, but your pitching is not mediocre it is terrible almost all of your starters are unproven or are pitching over their heads. I would also find a way to trade your superstars for a good pitcher+a good hitter. You also have like no saves so you should drop Eddie and all of the other RP's except Gonzo.

Because Aramis, Peraltla and Manny are all underproducing. They should all turn it around so I wouldn't do anything to major yet, but you do need a closer. Would trading Pods for saves be an option?

Holds count the same as saves so Linebrink is valuable. I had figured Soriano would take Guardado's job, never saw Putz coming :(

Thanks for the advice, I'll try to move Guardado out and trading Pods for a closer is a good idea - Crisp and Ichiro are getting more SB's than I thought.
