Can I Improve My Team? :-°

Postby bAsKeTcAsE86 » Mon May 07, 2007 4:55 pm

I am in an 8 team daily head to head league with 20 starting players (10 hitters, 10 pitchers). My team has been solid so far, but I have struggled to get production out of my thirdbasemen and am wondering whether or not it is worth trading some of my other talent to improve in this area. I understand that my team is really good as is, and I am wondering whether or not it is worth it to make a move for big-name thirdbaseman. I could actually end up weakening my team by doing so. I've considered making a move for David Wright, but given his lack of power over the second half of last season and the beginning of this one, I am wondering whether he will even have better numbers than Zimmerman (who I project as .270 30 2Bs 20 HR 75 RBI 20 SB) by season's end. What do you guys think?

My Team:
C Victor Martinez
1B Travis Hafner
2B Chase Utley
3B Ryan Zimmerman
SS Jimmy Rollins
OF Grady Sizemore
OF Jason Bay
OF Pat Burrell
Util Derek Lee
Util Kelly Johnson

Bench:
SS Jhonny Peralta
SS/2B/3B/OF Chone Figgins
OF Gary Sheffield
OF Ken Griffey Jr
3B Chad Tracy

Pitchers: (I can use as many as I want (and I have been using all of them) because I can switch them in and out every day depending on who's starting)
SP Oliver Perez
SP Carlos Zambrano
SP John Lackey
SP Ben Sheets
SP Ian Snell
SP James Shields (just added)
RP Jose Valverde
RP Brian Fuentes
RP Al Reyes
RP/SP Brett Myers

DL:
SP Felix Hernandez
SP Rich Harden
RP Eric Gagne

The scoring categories are as follows (there are more offensive categories (15-12) so offense is a bit more valuable):

Hitting: ABs, Hits, BBs, Runs, Doubles, Triples, HRs, RBI, Total Bases, Batting Average, Slugging Percentage, OBP, OPS, Games played, SBs

Pitching: Games started, Innings Pitched, Hits allowed, Earned runs allowed, BBs allowed, Ks, Wins, fewest losses, Saves, ERA, WHIP, K/BB ratio

I think you have to be patient. Figgins was hurt early and Tracy has been decent (until this latest injury). I worry about Zimmerman a little, not because of talent, but due to the fact that there is just no one on that team to help consistantly.

Help with mine...
