More like 9x7.....Take advantage??

Postby ajgnydc722 » Sat Mar 06, 2004 9:57 am

I'm in an 8 team H2H with my friends and it's a 9x9 league including these categories:

Hitting--runs, hits, doubles, homeruns, rbis, stolen bases, strikeouts, walks, average

Pitching--wins, losses, saves, complete games, shutouts, strikeouts, walks, era, whip

Here is my roster which I believe to be one of the 3 best teams (in my opinion the best) in my league:

C- Jason Kendall
1B- Jason Giambi
2B- Alfonso Soriano
3B- Eric Chavez
SS- Nomar Garciaparra
OF- Vernon Wells
OF- Garrett Anderson
OF- Chipper Jones
Utl- Jim Edmonds
Utl- Phil Nevin
Utl- Rafael Furcal
B- Kazuo Matsui
B- Mark Teixiera
B- Carl Everett
B- Pat Burrell

SP- Randy Johnson
SP- Bartolo Colon
SP- Matt Morris
RP- Matt Mantei
RP- Aurthur Rhodes
P- Mike MacDougal
P- Johan Santana
P- Brandon Webb
B- Jon Lieber
B- AJ Burnett
B- Steve Trachsel
B- Jose Contreras

After looking at it closely, more than half of the time complete games and shutouts will end in ties at the end of the week. I think one weakness on my team is my 3rd outfield slot with a mediocre player in Chipper. Should I consider pitching a little less valuable and trade somebody like Webb with Chipper to get a good upgrade?

I'm not sure if this post belongs in here or in Analyze my Team because it's more of a strategy question of whether I should stack up on offense. Any thoughts?

Randy Johnson and Colon should get you some CG's, try and get Halladay if you can, he racks em up.

After looking at my staff I'm surprised to find that I may actually have alot of complete games and shutouts this season. Randy is a monster with complete games when he's healthy, getting 9 in his last full season of '02. Colon has 8 and 9 the past two years. Even Matt Morris had 5 complete games and 3 shutouts in only 27 starts last season. Not to mention AJ Burnett who led the league in shutouts with 5 in '02. If he's back to his old self he'll help out also.

I think I am in pretty good shape but maybe I should pick up another. Or should I keep these guys and maybe offer up somebody like Webb with Chipper for a better outfielder and improve my offense while keeping these guys?
