Who should I start in the OF

Postby brian3223 » Sun May 13, 2007 10:49 pm

I'm in a standard 12 team yahoo league. I am having problems picking who I should start in the OF. Seems like everytime I take someone out, they have a good day. Here is my team

C. Russ Martin
1B. Helton
2B. R Weeks
3B. Lowell
SS. Rentaria
OF. V Wells
OF. T Hunter
OF. Chris Young
Util. C Delgado

3B. G Atkins
SS. R Furcal
OF. G Matthews Jr
OF. N Markakis

I share this team with a friend because it's a money league. At this point I think Furcal should be in Utility and Matthews in the OF instaed of Young. He disagrees, and wants to keep the team the way it is. What is eveyone else's opinion?

Kind of a weak team IMO. You don't have a lot of options with some of the guys on your bench. Is your pitching stacked? If it is, I'd try to trade for more power.

JMO, but I'd start Atkins over Lowell, and bench Furcal until he shows signs of life -- I wouldn't trade him until he does though. Markakis and Matthews are borderline. I'd look to improve at 1B and Utility with good power or SB options. If there are any OF players on waivers, post them also.

My staff consists of
Rich Hill
Kelvm Escobar
Oliver Perez
Micah Owings
F Liriano
T Saito
R Soriano
D Turnbow
J accardo

The league Im in has a salary cap, which is why my team may not look as goo as others. We are actually in 3rd place overall.

We have decided to play Matthews Jr over Chris Young. As of now we are putting Furcal in the Util and sitting Delgado. We are trying to trade Delgado but no takers of yet.
