Dropped the ball on OF and SS. Help!

Postby bcbhockey68 » Tue Apr 07, 2009 2:02 am

10 team H2H R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP
I think I ended up pretty good in everything, but OF and SS. So give me your thoughts and what I can do to improve my squad.

C Ramón Hernández
1B Justin Morneau
2B Chase Utley
3B David Wright
SS Jason Bartlett
OF Corey Hart
OF Brad Hawpe
OF Carlos Gómez
Util Adrián González
Util Cristian Guzmán
BN Jay Bruce
BN Chris Davis
BN Matt Wieters
BN Justin Upton

SP Cole Hamels
SP Roy Oswalt
RP José Valverde
RP Brian Fuentes
P Yovani Gallardo
P Ricky Nolasco
P Frank Francisco
BN Chris Carpenter

I'm currently talking to the Hanely owner for a possible trade, because he is a big fan of Utley, Hart, and Bruce. So I was thinking I'd offer him Utley, Bruce, and Hart for his Han-Ram, Cano, and Maybin; how does that soun or sould I stick with what I got?

How do you have such a horrible shortstop in a 10 team league????

There's got to be better on the WW.

Assuming HanRam, Rollins, Reyes, Drew, Furcal, Tulo, Peralta, Jeter, Young are the other teams starters... that means there are MANY MANY good options available.

O. Cabrera, Aviles, Theriot, F. Lopez, Tejada, Hardy???

A few suggestions, get Christian Guzman onto your bench of drop him, you don't need him when you have Chris Davis on your bench, (he should be playing util instead of Guzman.) Next, your outfield is not that bad, Jay Bruce is good times, and Justin Upton is streaky, but could put together a nice stretch of offensive production. I would bench Carlos Gomez for the time being, and see how he plays over the next few weeks, and I would put Bruce in your starting lineup. I would look to replace Bartlett as the other poster suggested there are better players available on the WW.

I agree with Merlin. Gotta be some better SS on waivers. Heck Drop C.Gomez for E. Andrus and get your steals from the SS spot, allowing for a heavier hitter in your OF slot. Keep an eye on guys like J.Schafer/N.Morgan/T.Snider as potential OF's and if A.Lind is still hanging around(he was in my league), ride the hot hand.

Have a good season.

Yeah I just copied and pasted my roster so the players on the bench don't have games today so I will be starting Bruce and Davis when thay have games and there are some good options at SS on the WW ESPN just ranked Barlett as the 14th best SS so I just took him. I def. shouldn't of waited tell the 19th round to select my starting SS.

WW Short Stops:
Yunel Escobar
Édgar Rentería
Felipe López
César Izturis (just a hot hand)

In addition to picking up on of these SS should I drop Guzman or Gomez for a hot hand like Emilio Bonifacio or Adam Lind?

I would grab Lind out of principle. He had a huge opening day. He could very well turn into last years Quentin or Ludwick. I would prefer Felipe Lopez or Escobar over both your existing SS. After his opening day, I doubt Lopez stays on waivers for long. He's in a good situation in AZ.
