Troubled Team Needs Some Ideas

Postby Airborne24 » Tue Apr 21, 2009 12:03 pm

2 Weeks into the season and my team is struggling. I foolishly drafted Huston Street as a closer and now I'm down to only one Saves source (Kerry Wood).

ESPN Standard 12 team 5x5 H2H league. Any input or ideas would be greatly appreciated. I've considered punting saves and trying to package Volquez/Wood for a bat with some pop (Michael Young, and I tried buying low on Pedroia) but can't get any takers right now.

C Mike Napoli
1B Derrek Lee
2B Kelly Johnson
3B Chone Figgins
SS Hanley Ramirez
MI Orlando Hudson
CI Nick Swisher
OF Josh Hamilton
OF Manny Ramirez
OF Daniel Murphy
OF Ryan Church
UT Milton Bradley
BN Khalil Greene
BN Pat Burrell
BN: Just put in a waiver claim for Mike Aviles.

I wouldn't send volquez anywhere..I think You're just going to have to take your lumps early on.

If Hafner is still availiable I'd grab him..Chris Duncan is being slept on in alot of leagues too.

I agree you should punt saves, look to package Derrek Lee as well and get a better first baseman, I always look for a big power hitter at that position and at this stage of his career Lee will not provide you with homers.

I'd start Burrell over Murphy or Church in the long term. I would try to trade those two as well.
