I'm not sure what to make of your league pitching cats. SHO and CG are kind of arbitrary and rare stats in my opinion. Unless you land Sabathia or Halliday I would say punt those two cats and focus on the remaining 7 cats. I might try to trade Weiters to upgrade SS or OF.
According to baseballmonster, the top 25 players last year according to your league settings were: Sabathia, C.C. Halladay, Roy Pujols, Albert Lee, Cliff Wright, David Berkman, Lance Santana, Johan Ramirez, Manny Ramirez, Hanley Lincecum, Tim Teixeira, Mark Beltran, Carlos Reyes, Jose Pedroia, Dustin Sheets, Ben Holliday, Matt Utley, Chase Sizemore, Grady Hamilton, Josh Hamels, Cole Webb, Brandon Rodriguez, Alex Morneau, Justin Huff, Aubrey Santana, Ervin
yeah CG and SHO are a nuisance. They were voted on last year to be removed but it didn't pass, I kind of wish they weren't there now. For sake of conversation and because I'm still learning, what's wrong with my OF? I was thinking my OF was pretty solid.
