The Best Lineup That Doesn't Hit!!! Please Help.

Postby beadkong » Tue May 13, 2008 10:12 pm

In a 10 team H2H league and need serious help. I was excited about my lineup this year until I started batting in the 180's with no power numbers.
- Right around week 2, I traded Prince and Mcann for Morneau and Vernon Wells. Dropped Wells when he recently broke his wrist.

LINEUP
C - Geovany Soto
1B - Derrick Lee
2B - Rickie Weeks (dropped as soon as Howie is healthy)
SS - Micheal Young
3B - Chipper Jones (the only reason I wake up in the morning)
OF - Josh Hamilton
OF - Curtis Granderson
OF - Torii Hunter
UTL - Justin Morneau
B - Howie Kendrick - DL
B - Ryan Ludwick

PITCHING
SP - Josh Beckett
SP - Ben Sheets
RP - Mariano Rivera
RP - Troy Percival
P - Roy Oswalt
P - James Shields
P - Edinson Volquez
BN - Ryan Franklin
BN - Kyle Loshe
BN - Andy Pettite (prob drop)

- Just dropped Izzy and picked up Franklin. If you guys have any thoughts on who/if I should drop anybody please let me know your thoughts. Live in the STL so if you need any insider info on the birds let me know!!! (I also know quite a bit about the NL Central as well)

I think you dropped Prince too early. It will be hard to make up what you have lost in a 10 team league.Bad luck was involved with you losing Wells. You could try to trade for another SP. Keep an eye on the WW and hope you can pick up maybe a Bailey or Kershaw when they get the call. Use them as trade bait when they start to perform good. Please help me

i dont know what to say dude. you drafted really well, but its not panning out. Definitely drop pettite and maybe lohse. maybe try to pick up a guy whos hitting well and has some potential to keep it going and a more solid starting pitcher

Thanks for the help on mine and sorry Im a little late on the response. I would need a list of players on FA before I could tell you who to pick up...DONT drop Weeks...thats for sure, stash him on your bench if you are upset but if he is healthy dropping him would be a huge mistake. I would maybe pick Izzy backup as I think he will be a closer again this year, even if it isnt with the Cardinals.
