1/2 game out of 1st...

Postby dczeis55 » Mon Jul 14, 2008 5:57 am

I'm a half game out of first (79-50-11) in a standard Yahoo 5x5, 12 team league. What kind of move(s) should I make for the second half? By the way, I flip Dunn and Figgins whenever the Reds face a southpaw, since Dunn struggles against the lefties. I also took a couple of big hits due to injuries this year (Furcal and Capps).

C - I. Rodriguez
1B - A. Pujols
2B - R. Cano
3B - D. Wright
SS - C. Guillen
OF - L. Berkman, G. Sizemore, C. Hart
Utility - A. Dunn
Bench - C. Figgins

SP - R. Halladay, J. Lackey, E. Santana, Z. Greinke, J. Sanchez, F. Liriano
RP - B. Lyon, G. Sherrill, H. Street, J. Isringhausen, M. Kobayashi

DL - A. Wainwright

Damn it Dunn. I took him out of my lineup last night since he was up against Johan Santana. And, of course, he took him deep. That's only his 4th HR against a lefty this year though (and a .187 BA too).

Well, when I picked Isringhausen up (about two weeks ago when Matt Capps went on the DL), he was pitching pretty well and I expected him to start closing again. After last nights debacle, i took your advice and picked up Grant Balfour because he is lights out (1.5 K's per IP and and ERA/WHIP of 1.54/0.90). He won't get many save chances though...that Rays pen is stacked.

hm... look for team w/ weak closer and take their best 2nd rp ( right now... i think dodger, texas, cubs ( maybe wood will go dl), diamon backs, pirates, OAKLANd ATHETIC ) .. these teams have holes in rp especially saves
dodger - don't no how that new closer gonna do.
texas- closer = weak
cubs = potential injured
diamond - lyon just sucks
pirates - in jured
oakland- they trying to shift out street


i did taht on my team 1st half.. now i have 5 closers ^^ 2 from FA lol
