#1 in my league... but not for long... need some help WHIR

Postby SweetAurillia » Mon May 14, 2007 3:21 am

Well I was blind to the fact that my team lacked power during Arod's hot streak but now that he's cooled off I have finally seen the light lol. I've narrowed it down to the flaw of Tejada... basically spending my 2nd pick for a SS that doesn't steal and won't have a lot of power (I'm convinced his power numbers will go down this year). The only trade I've got in the works right now is B. Roberts and Pierre for Holliday, but is that giving away too much speed?

C - R. Martin
1B - D. Lee
2B - B. Roberts
3B - Arod
SS - Tejada
OF - Damon, Pierre, Francoeur
Util - Swisher
BN - F. Thomas, Kinsler
DL - Kendrick

SP - Kazmir, Sabathia
RP - Al Reyes, Torres
P - Schilling, J. Shields, Burnett
BN - Lincecum, Wickman, Dotel

WHIR - Leave a link, thanks

i think tejada is fine. even if he doesn't hit 35 homers, he's still decent enough. I think your OF is a bigger issue. Damon is only getting older. Francoeur is much better this year, but only time will tell. I think you should deal some pitching for a better OF option.

I agree, your outfield is the week part. but I wouldn't give up pitching for it. Try Roberts or Kinsler for a power hitting OF. Since you have both of them and Kendrick, there has to be some team out there hurting at 2B.

Yah I've realized my OF is very weak too... thats why I'm trying to package Pierre with a 2B for a big OF bat. But I'm just thinking I'll need more than one big OF bat unless Francoeur and Swisher can keep up their pace. Any thoughts?

Try trading Kinsler and Francouer for a top OF. Sizemore,Vladdy,Manny something to that level. Kinsler hasn't been hitting as well lately, but his #s still look nice and Francouer is doing great right now. I'd sell high on them and try to land a top stud.

Yeah, sell high on Kinsler. He will come back to earth at some point.
I'd try selling him and Pierre for an upgrade for a power hitting OF.

And thanks for the post on my team.
