2nd Place, How to Improve?

Postby JackStraw » Wed Jun 21, 2006 8:04 pm

Yahoo H2H 8 team league, 12 categories (standard 5x5 + OPS and Losses) non-keeper.

I am thinking I need improvement at 2B or SS and it wouldn't hurt to have a 4th outfielder either. I was going to try to move Wright since he is hot right now, but I don't know if I can improve my team by losing him.... I was offered Vlad for him straight up.

C - R. Hernandez
1B - Helton
2B - Bill Hall
3B - D Wright
SS - R Furcal
OF - Adam Dunn
OF - J Gomes
OF - M Holliday
Util - T Hafner
Util - S Rolen
DL - D Lee

SP - Roy Oswalt
SP - Mike Mussina
RP - A Otsuka
RP - B Wickman
P - T Saito
P - D Turnbow
P - K Ray
BN - M Buehrle
BN - C Young
BN - J Lackey
BN - A Pettite
BN - C Schilling

#1 Don't let Wright go.
#2 Let Kenny Ray go.
#3 Of the Ps, I'd grab Cain, Meche, and/or Weaver
#4 I'd try to trade some of your offense for pitching.

UNLESS you really want to trade Wright. Then I'd move Rolen to third and grab Atkins, Cantu, Crisp, or Youkilis.




Help with my rotation?

Why drop Ray? Has he lost the job in Atlanta? Or do you just think he will lose it or won't produce much as the closer for Atlanta?

First of all, nice name. I actually like the Vlad for Wright trade, provided you can fill 3b with someone decent, I see Vlad producing far more than Wright over the entire season. At 2B i think Cantu would be a good pickup, I've tried trading for him in my league, he seems to be hot right now though so don't be fooled into buying him too high.

Anyone else think I should drop Ray? Benitez no longer available on FA, but M Gonzalez is on waivers....

BTW decided to keep Wright, he's just too hot...
