Currently in LAST place in this 12 team, roto points Yahoo league. My offense has been awful, pitching has been pretty good. I recently made a few trades - I was able to buy low and get Justin Verlander AND Carlos Gomez for Brad Hawpe a few weeks ago. And I just pulled the trigger to deal Johan, Helton and Hoffman for Teixeira, Soria and Christian Guzman. Here is my new squad:
C - VMart 1B - Teixeira 2B - Barmes 3B - Braun SS - Guzman CI - Longoria MI - Pedroia OF - Ordonez OF - Abreu OF - Ludwick OF - C Gomez UT - JD Drew BN - Melky Cabrera BN - Kent BN - Jay Bruce DL - Posada
P - Lincecum P - Wang P - Verlander P - Carmona P - Putz P - Soria P - Wellemeyer P - Redding P - Mussina BN - Hendrickson BN - Olson BN - Maddux
Injuries have killed me - with Putz out, I fell way behind in saves. I lost Posada for awhile and VMart has been KILLING me. Dude has completely lost his power. 0 homers?! Only 9 runs scored?!
Thoughts on where I can improve? Moves I should make? I'm still thinking I should try to sell high on Ludwick while I can. Posada should be back soon and hopefully Jay Bruce gets called up soon and makes a big impact. I am probably already in too deep of a hole to climb out but we'll see. Thoughts? WHIR!
I like the moves I have made so far and I am starting to see some signs of improvement.
Seriously? Barmes and Guzman are currently ranked a lot higher than anyone on the FA wire - it's a pretty deep league so there is not much worth picking up.
I am trying to deal Ludwick while he is still hot - I offered someone Ludwick and Carmona for Beltran and Joba. I think he is fed up with Beltran so I may have a shot. I am trying to spin the fact that Joba will be transitioning for a few weeks to justify the deal.
