5th Place. WHIR

Postby TheOther1 » Thu Jun 22, 2006 8:42 pm

I'm pretty much stuck in about 4th/5th place in my 10 team 5x5 Yahoo league. The categories I generally have trouble with are Runs, W's, K's , ERA and WHIP. Please give your thoughts for any improvements you think I might be able to make.

C
J. Estrada

1B
A. Pujols

2B
C. Figgins

3B
H. Blalock

SS
D. Jeter

OF
V. Wells
C. Crisp
K. Griffey Jr.

Util
K. Youkilis

BN
J. Kent

And here's my bullpen:
SP
S. Kazmir
A. Burnett
N. Robertson
G. Maddux
J. Bonderman
Jo. Johnson
B. Sheets (DL)

RP
M. Rivera
J. Nathan
J. Putz
A. Otsuka
J. Borowski

I have room for 2 Rp's and 3 P's which I allot completely for my RP's. Who should I drop when Sheets comes of the DL?

Thanks for your advice, WHIR

I'd drop Johnson when Sheets comes back, but keep Sheets on a short leash. I'd consider dropping him if he doesn't come back strong.

I'd also drop Youkilis and pick up as good a DH as you can get.

Finally, I'd try to upgrade Crisp (who is batting 8th now) and get the best OF available.

Overall, you look like you're in decent shape. Don't do anything too drastic.

I agree. Also, I dont think your SP is up to par in a 10 team league. Offense looks good though. Remember it's only June!

I wouldnt drop Youki but I would concur with getting red of Mad Dog since he is like 2 and 7 since May 1st when Sheets comes back. Give Sheets a few starts though. He will either get injured or pitch well!

I would look for an upgrade over Youkilis and drop Maddux when Sheets is back. Alos keep checking the WW for RPs that are hot.

Here are my options for the best hitters available on the wire:

N. Johnson
A. Kearns
C. Guillén
G. Matthews Jr.
B. Inge
R. Zimmerman
B. Hawpe
B. Wilkerson

Which of these would you recommend dropping for Youkilis? I've been constantly shopping Kent around for just about anything with no luck. Also, what SP should I try to trade with Borowski for a decent RP?

Thanks again.

Also here are the top RP's as per their rank available on the WW:

S. Shields
F. Rodney
J. Zumaya
S. Linebrink
I. Snell
R. Ramírez
R. Nolasco
A. Wainwright
R. Soriano

Should I pick up any of these for now?

Also, I just dropped Maddux and picked up Jer Weaver in anticipation of sitting on him until he comes back to the majors, but mainly because Maddux has been so unproductive as of late. Good or bad move?
