Suggestions and Help (W.H.I.R.)

Postby Philbo135 » Thu Apr 30, 2009 7:22 pm

Ok so Mauer is most likely coming back tomorrow....or shortly thereafter. Please help with suggestions on my team and where there are holes that need to be filled. I play in a 12 team H2H league with R/HR/RBI/SB/AVG/W/S/K/ERA/WHIP on yahoo.

So far, One month in, I'm just under a .500 team (14-15-1, not including this week).
My current league rankings: R-3rd, HR-1st, RBI-11th, SB-10th, AVG-6th , W-3rd, S-12th, K's-3rd, ERA-5th, WHIP-8th
This is my projected lineup for Friday, May 1st.
1B- Teixeira
2B- Hill
3B- Inge
SS- Scutaro
OF- C. Quentin
OF- Mags O.
OF- Adam Lind
Uti- Morneau
Bench: Felipe Lopez, Gatkins, Blalock, Nyjer Morgan
SP- Buehrle
SP- Danks
SP- Zambrano
SP- Floyd
SP- Cain
RP- Downs
RP- Gonzalez
RP-Aardsma

To me it seems I obviously need Saves ,Stolen Bases,RBI's. I also sort of feel that my RBI's will even out on their own once TEX and some others get it going. That being said, I'm wondering if I should:
a) sit Mags for a week and play Morgan everyday instead? I am unsure of Mags this season but also not sold on Morgan's SB ability.
b) make a trade for a solid closer/SP and/or a trade for some RBI/proven SB production?
c) chill for another 2weeks and see how it goes.

If this was your team how would you play it? Again W.H.I.R. :-S

I'm not sure there's a good reason to have any White Sox starters besides Danks in your rotation. You could use a pitching upgrade, if Matt Cain is your best pitcher, that's kind of a red flag. Buerhle and Floyd aren't good enough to be more than back-end fantasy starters.

I wouldn't worry about saves, they can come from anywhere. Downs and Gonzalez are scrap heap options, but they'll do. I'd drop Aardsma as Brandon Morrow has a firm grip on the Seattle closing job.

Nyjer Morgan is nowhere near as good as Ordonez. He has no power and subpar on-base skills. I wouldn't start him unless you're behind on steals for the week.

Make sure you have a replacement for Marco Scutaro when his bat inevitably cools down.

Maybe you can trade either Morneau or Atkins for SP help, although I'd want to keep Atkins around in case Inge doesn't keep up his hot start.

I would trade for a good SP also since Zambrano is shaky and Cain has the SF offense behind him.

Pretty good squad. If I were you I would try to move Inge or Atkins. I say try to move Inge first because of his hot start to the season. I would defiantly look for a solid pitcher for Inge at this point.

How does the FA pool look like?

I would hold off on making any drastic changes to your team, but look to improve the pitching staff...

Good Luck.
