Second place but pitching is hurting. Thoughts?

Postby taw856 » Thu Jun 14, 2007 11:17 am

10-team Yahoo! 6x6 roto league that uses default stats plus fielding percentage and holds. Doing well in hitting categories (first in runs, RBI, stolen bases and fielding percentage, third in batting average, fifth in home runs) but slightly below middle of the pack in most pitching categories (tied for last in WHIP, tied for seventh in holds, sixth in strikeouts, ERA and saves, third in wins).

We use weekly lineup settings so that partially explains why my wins are higher than other categories: I've picked up free agent two-start pitchers some weeks when I thought the matchups were good, which has probably increased my wins and Ks but hurt my WHIP and ERA.

Here's my lineup, any thoughts on how to improve would be appreciated:

C R. Martin
1B D. Lee
2B R. Cano
3B D. Wright
SS J. Lugo, (A. Hill)
OF J. Bay
OF H. Matsui
OF A. Rios, (N. Markakis)
UTIL T. Helton

SP R. Oswalt
SP F. Hernandez
SP S. Kazmir
SP T. Gorzelanny
RP F. Rodriguez
RP B. Wickman
P S. Linebrink, (D. Lowe, D. Willis, J. Valverde)

Will help anyone who leaves a link in return when I check this again tonight (it's 11 am here now).

You could definitely trade one of your OF for a better starter, particularly Bay or Rios.
