Thanks for checking out my team. Here's a couple of strategies you may want to check out in roto.
First, in roto, it's pivotal to be in the top 9 in at least 10 categories, so check out your stats for each player. Compare your team's totals to those of other teams in your league to see where you may be weak. I know that last years totals aren't the best way to judge your team, but that's all you've got to work with. Also, read up on the players in preseason fantasy tips and articles. Just search google for "2004 MLB fantasy tips" and you should get a whole slew of sites dedicated to Fantasy baseball coverage. Yahoo, ESPN, and this website are particularly strong websites with regards to individual player evaluations.
Second: dump you're bench players(batters) in 3 for 2 or 2 for 1 trades. What I'm saying is, make a trade more enticing to someone by giving them 3 players for 2 of theirs, just make sure that you're getting an upgrade to your list of starters. For instance if you sent Andrew Jones
, Biggio and Robb Nen
to someone for Bobby Abreu and a better, or more proven closer (Danny Kolb) you'll have come out stronger from the trade and you can always pick up deep sleepers from the waivers.
I'm not completely familiar all of your players and their respective strengths;I just started MLB fantasy, but am experienced in Fantasy play in general. So, sorry if my advice seems a little vague, but I think it'll help you some.
