Hey, new to the forums, but a long time fantasy player. My team is currently sitting in 5th in a 10 team H2H. Was just seeing what everyones thoughts were, Tulowitski's injury was a blow, so I know i'm lacking in the SS department. Any advice would be sweet. Should I make a trade for a SS? Is there any other holes anyone sees?
C-Russell Martin 1B- Carlos Pena 2B- Chase Utley 3B- Mike Lowell SS- Erick Aybar OF- Carlos Beltran, Hideki Matsui, Kosuke Fukudome Util- Nate McLouth BN- Dustin Pedroia BN- Jacoby Ellsbury BN- Brad Hawpe BN- Evan Longoria DL- Troy Tulowitski
SP- Jake Peavy SP- Carlos Zambrano SP- Chris Young RP- Takashi Saito RP- CJ Wilson P- Manny Acosta P- Ryan Franklin P- Jair Jurjens BN- Clay Bucholz BN- Ted Lilly BN- Garret Olsen
I guess we could all ask when is Pena going to reheat up, or will he? If not, you're hurting at 1b. I really like Utley and it seems he is carrying your team. You have a few slow starts from some players, which i hope will turn around soon. I say you sit with Aybar until Tulo returns, cause you will have to find room for him, and Aybar has been fine thus far. I really like your pitching, except for Chris Young, i can't see him turning it around this year. Otherwise its a solid staff, with few young studs like Bucholz and Jurjens. I'm not completely sold on the closers though.
And i agree, using McLouth maybe as trade bait getting Braun would be awesome. He is definately turning things around quick and we know he can have a major hot streak.
I think Aybar is good enough to help with the loss of Tulowitzki. I think Pena is your weakest link for now. His average has to be hurting a little. I would trade for Wright but not with Beltran. Try to do something else for that deal. Pretty good team though. Please help me
Thanks for the help on mine and sorry for the late response. I like your team a lot but I would trade for a speed threat, someone like Juan Pierre...you know he will be a reliable source of steals and he shouldnt be too expensive.
