Middle of the pack, how do I improve

Postby CapitalJ » Thu Jun 14, 2007 9:04 pm

I am in a 9 team yahoo non-keeper, weekly, roto league. I am back in forth between 3rd and 4th and never too far from the top, but can't seem to get to the top. We score R, RBI, SB, TB, OPS, IP, W, SV, ERA, WHIP.

Pos Batters R RBI SB TB OPS
C Mike Napoli (C) 27 24 4 69 .820
1B Paul Konerko (1B) 28 31 0 93 .766
2B Chase Utley (2B) 47 53 3 145 .959
3B Garrett Atkins (3B) 24 24 3 83 .677
SS Jimmy Rollins (SS) 51 39 12 145 .827
LF N Swisher (1B,LF,CF,RF) 28 35 1 99 .901
CF Vernon Wells (CF) 35 30 5 93 .691
RF Bobby Abreu (RF) 49 34 11 92 .742
Util Jeff Francoeur (RF) 30 45 1 115 .775
BN Jim Thome (Util) 21 23 0 64 1.019
BN --empty-- - - - - -
DL B.J. Upton (2B,3B,CF) 36 31 13 109 .941
DL Ramón Hernández (C) 14 27 1 45 .718

Pos Pitchers IP W SV ERA WHIP
SP Brandon Webb 99.0 6 0 3.18 1.24
SP C.C. Sabathia 99.0 9 0 3.09 1.12
SP John Lackey 92.2 10 0 2.53 1.15
SP Dan Haren 97.0 7 0 1.58 0.86
RP F Rodríguez 27.2 0 20 2.28 1.19
RP Joe Nathan 28.1 2 14 1.91 1.31
P Erik Bedard 87.0 4 0 3.72 1.29
P Carlos Zambrano 88.1 7 0 4.89 1.46
P Fausto Carmona 82.1 7 0 3.17 1.21
BN Tim Lincecum 48.0 2 0 5.25 1.27
BN Brad Lidge 31.2 2 0 2.56 1.29

I will probably insert Hernandez back at catcher and Upton at third or Utility once they are off the DL, depending on how Napoli, Atkins, Francoeur and Thome are playing. I have been using Carmona, but Big Z is back in for now as I think he is starting to turn it around. I am contemplating dropping Lincecum since this is not a keeper league and he has been inconsistent.

Some interesting guys on the wire are:
Orlando Cabrera
Carlos Pena
Brad Hawpe
Hunter Pence
Conner Jackson
Michael Barrett
Mike Piazza
Pat Neshek
Chad Gaudin
Casey Janssen
Matt Capps
Octavio Dotel
Yovani Gallardo

How would you change this team. Any wire moves? Trade strategies?

of the available players listed, i like pence (as long as he's hitting, he can help you in all of your categories, at least until wells heats up) and capps (good for WHIP, ERA, and SV).

although i like lincecum, i agree that you can drop him without worries, because you have a good group of starters, and your league doesn't count strikeouts, which is one of his strengths. perhaps you could try to trade him for a 1b or 3b. those are the positions i'd be looking to upgrade if i were you.

I'd try to deal Linc before dropping him. Try packaging him with someone for a better OF.
