No Clue - Need Major Help.

No Clue - Need Major Help.

Postby SauberF1 » Fri May 01, 2009 10:39 am

I joined a completely noob baseball league where no ones knows what to do.

this is my roster (auto-picked)
Batters
D. Navarro (C)
J. Mauer (C)
A. Pujols (1B)
C. Figgins (2B, 3B)
C. Davis (1B, 3B)
R. Furcal (SS)
M. Aviles (2B, SS)
A. Soriano (OF)
C. Crawford (OF)
C. Beltran (OF)
J. Bay (OF)
J. Werth (OF)
K. Greene (SS)

Pitchers
J. Sanchez (SP)
S. Baker (SP)
J. Chamberlain (SP, RP)
M. Lindstrom (RP)
R. Nolasco (SP)
C. Kershaw (SP)
E. Volquez (SP)
J. Lackey (SP) -DL

I'm losing should I pick up any of these available players....
On FA there is Brad Hawpe, Felipe Lopez, Pablo Sandoval, Denard Span. Pretty much anyone 200+. If there is a someone you have in mind that might help me throw out a name and who I should replace him with.

On Pitching....Jered Weaver, Chad Qualls, Cliff Lee. I feel like I need some more RPs but then again I don't know what I'm doing.

General advice is appreciated too. Thanks.

I don't have much experience either but I rather have Sandoval than Greene. You still have two SS anyways. Sandoval will become a catcher soon so thats a plus.

What kind of league is it? Is it roto, H2H, points, etc. The type of league you play in can change the type of team you want on the field...

You need to pick up Sandoval and Span. drop Greene. Maybe try and package up Furcal. He is gauranteed to be rested at least once a week. That is not what you want as a fantasy owner. Also, pickup a replacement closer like L. Hawkins.

For better help we need to know your league details as the other member posted.

Drop Navarro and pick up Sandoval (if he qualifies at C). Pick up Jered Weaver and drop K. Greene.

You don't need Span, your outfield is fine.

good luck
