WHY AM I STRUGGLING? WHIR

Postby ahopnova » Tue May 01, 2007 10:20 am

Alright, this is my first year doing fantasy baseball, and considering I had the 8 spot in my draft, I was feeling very confident about my team coming into the season...I had to deal with a variety of injuries at the beginning of the season. I am in a 10 team, h2h, 5X5 yahoo league... here is my team: 10 team league, 5X5, head 2 head

my team:
C: Johjima
1: Morneau
2: Cano
3: Figgins
SS: Furcal
OF: Beltran
OF: Manny
OF: Dunn
Util: Upton
BN: LaRoche
BN: Markakis


SP: Zambrano
SP: Bonderman
SP: Snell
SP: Suppan
SP: Hirsh
SP: Hughes
RP: Hoffman
RP: Wheeler
RP: Okajima


Please give me any insight about my team, and I will try to help you in return. TIA

Most of your hitters are just off to slow starts; otherwise, your lineup looks fine, and I would be patient with it. They should heat up soon. I'd try to trade/drop LaRoche for an SP or closer, and I'd drop Okajima if there are any free agent closers available.

Your team isn't bad at all.

On offense, Cano, Figgins, Furcal, and Manny have all been plagued by poor starts. Just wait it out, they will come around.

Zambrano will come around as well. He has been very cold.

You need to add another closer as well. Deal Wheeler and Okajima for a proven closer

That lineup could be outstanding - you have the right pieces - to me your outfield is the strongest aspect of your team - and i think you could really use another quality SP. You have a nice balance of speed and power esp. w/ the return of figgins. I would first try to move LaRoche, but I don't think you're going to get the return you need in pitching. If you can't get anyone to bite on anything (and chances are everyone has a 1B in a 10 team league), I would try to deal Dunn. Dunn probably has as much value as you could get out of him. Everyone knows he has power, and right now he is running too. With an outfield including beltran and manny, you can afford to lose him - manny will heat up. I would target a B+ SP for dunn

Please look at mine,
