Last in my league, where do I need help? WHIR

Postby Peregrine » Thu Apr 26, 2007 6:36 pm

So I'm in the process of working my lineup into shape, but I'm still dragging tail. Any suggestions on strengths/weaknesses would be appreciated. I just picked up V. Mart, and I'm shopping Piazza around for something, he'd be an upgrade for a few teams.

5x5, 10 team h2h, c, 1b, 2b,3b,ss,of,of,of,util, 2sp, 2rp, 3p, 3bn, 2DL.

C Victor Martinez
1B Mark Texiera
2B Rickie Weeks
3B Ty Wigginton
SS Rafael Furcal
OF Manny Ramírez
OF Grady Sizemore
OF Jeff Francoeur
Util Rocco Baldelli
BN Mike Piazza
BN Ryan Zimmerman

Pitchers:
SP Johan Santana
SP Bartolo Colon
P Adam Wainwright
P Javier Vasquez
P Salomen Torres
RP Francisco Cordero
RP Takashi Saito
BN Ryan Dempster
DL Jason Schmidt

Notables on WW: Adrian Gonzalez, Frank Thomas, Josh Hamilton, BJ Upton, JJ Hardy, Granderson, Brett Meyers, Ted Lilly, Ian Snell, AJ Burnett, Buehrle, David Weathers, Broxton, Dan Wheeler

Theres a boat load of talent on your waiver wire.

I think picking up Wheeler over Torres is one thing to do. Lily has also been lights out. Is streaming pitchers in your league allowed or possible?

You have to get Adrian Gonzalez on your team. Then you can play him while Tex is slumping.
Also, look to trade one of your catchers. Some people really hate when people load up on catchers and are desperate to trade. I'm on the opposite end of the line in one of my leagues where a guy has V Mart and McCann (who is just sitting on the bench!)

no streaming pitchers, unfortunately.

And all the WW talent is due to the 10 teams + 3 BN; you have to give up on something pretty good to make a move, and people have been very hesitant to drop names for hot starts.

Lots to choose from on your WW. I'd definitely look to add Adrian Gonzalez as he's a solid hitter and would be a nice addition to any team.

I would drop Baldelli for him if I had to.

Your team looks really good. I wouldn't expect to be at the bottom of the pile for much longer; your guys should turn it around.

just cold hitting really.

teix - manny - furcal....
they are ice cold, but all will bounce back.

i would probably pick up gonz and use him until teix gets back on track.

I definitely think that this is the worst time to shop Piazza. He'll have more value later.

I also don't trust Francouer.
