First timer looking for help...

Postby keysley » Tue Jun 03, 2008 9:52 am

I'm wondering if there's anything I should be doing to my team. It's my first time doing fantasy baseball and I'm a little overwhelmed. I've got some good players that have been seriously underperforming so far. Any lineup changes you see? Any drops or trades I should be making?

Standard Yahoo 7-team 5x5 Rotisserie. I am currently in 6th, weak on hitting categories, strong on most pitching categories (but slipping).

C Joe Mauer (Min - C)
1B Ryan Howard (Phi - 1B)
2B Plácido Polanco (Det - 2B)
3B Miguel Cabrera (Det - 1B,3B)
SS Jimmy Rollins (Phi - SS)
IF Édgar Rentería (Det - SS)
LF Michael Bourn (Hou - LF,CF)
CF Jay Bruce (Cin - CF)
RF Corey Hart (Mil - CF,RF)
OF Jermaine Dye (CWS - RF)
Util Kevin Youkilis (Bos - 1B,3B)
BN Evan Longoria (TB - 3B)
BN Nick Markakis (Bal - RF)
BN Jim Thome (CWS - Util)

SP Josh Beckett (Bos - SP)
SP Chien-Ming Wang (NYY - SP)
RP Jonathan Papelbon (Bos - RP)
RP Huston Street (Oak - RP)
P Kerry Wood (ChC - RP)
P Francisco Rodríguez (LAA - RP)
P Félix Hernández (Sea - SP)
P Joe Saunders (LAA - SP)
BN Roy Oswalt (Hou - SP)
BN Tim Hudson (Atl - SP)

you need some more power in your lineup, i think that could be your problem. Try to package together some of your avg guys like polanco and renteria and try to get some homerun hitters...homers add points to many categories (runs, rbis, avg, hr, (hits and tb for some)

So let's say I take that strategy, and target someone like Dan Uggla, what kind of platter would be a fair offer in return? Obviously, Polanco, probably a closer (I've got saves to spare, Maybe Wood or Rodriguez), and who else?

Or is Uggla the wrong guy to be targeting?
