Need Help with a Line Up Question

Postby Papelbon Fire » Tue Apr 21, 2009 11:13 am

So here is my team in a 12-team 5x5 yahoo league (R,HR,RBI,SB,AVG;W,SV,K,WHIP,ERA)
C - Wieters, Buck, Shoppach
1B - Loney, Howard
2B - Utley
3B - Beltre
SS - Alexei Ramirez
OF - Werth, Hunter, Burrell, Granderson
SP - Halladay, Lester, Floyd, Jimenez, Masterson, Washburn, Kawakami, Price DL - Matsuzaka
RP - Wilson

I am thinking about dumping Jimenez/Kawakami and picking up Jason Bartlett as a short term fix at ss, since Ramirez is not producing right now. Any thoughts?

Might I suggest dropping either Buck or Shoppach, no need to carry so many catchers. I think Jiminez and Kawakami might be more valuable down the line.

Yeah I had considered that, while Wieters is waiting to get called up, but Shoppach performs when he starts and Buck is hitting right now, so it's a tough call. But I think that's the most reasonable way to go. Thanks for your input.

No prob, by the way for my sake as well as yours lets hope Dice-K comes back from strong. I really regret drafting him now.

ramirez hates the cold all indications say he will come back strong when it warms up. but for now I would check out cabrera from clevland owned in only 38% of yahoo leagues or maybe even eckstien owned in only 5% but very servicable for now until ramirez gets hot

Eckstein? I don't see "Grit" or "Hustle" or "Scrappiness" in a category in his league. There's a reason only 5% on Yahoo have him: he sucks.

If your league is H2H, then solid SPs should be more valuable than a temporary hot hand at SS.
