5x5 Draft Woes (WHIR)

Postby surfanimal » Mon Mar 10, 2008 11:47 pm

Standard 5x5 Yahoo league, 10 teams, 3rd pick. It's my first roto, and I'm not sure how I fared. I don't feel too confident in HR's, and I think my pitching is pretty weak, specifically closers. Who should I drop/use as trade bait for what categories? Someone suggested I offer up Figgins for Atkins, and I agree that it'd be a pretty good move. Opinions on that? Thanks in advance!

You just hang tight.
Don't let people start spooking you before the season even starts. To win fantasy baseball you will need patience and bursts of aggression here and there. The weeks leading up to the season after the draft will be where you need such patience. Hang tight. Light the cigar of the first stage victory of a grand total of 100 stages to win.

EDIT: Sorry I didnt read your post right. Yeah offering Figgins for Atkins is a decent idea. Just dont reach. You are in good shape right now.
Be the change you want to see in this world.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I proposed the Figgins <-> Atkins trade, we'll see how that turns out. Anyone else have any suggestions?
I'll rate your guys' teams if you like as well.
