New to Yahoo Rottissere league...need help! WHIR!

Postby WhipperSnappers44 » Sat May 09, 2009 1:18 pm

Hey all,

I am used to H2H style of scoring and this year I had joined a Rottissere league (5x5 - or 10 CATS) as well but not sure how the scoring goes. I am seeing my team drop quickly everyday and not sure what to do. It seems as of recently I have been getting quite a few -2.5 points per day dropping me.

Please rate my team and see why I am dropping (I think it's a stacked team) and if there is any weak areas I need to improve on.

Also, I tried looking at websites that explain the Rottissere scoring and I cannot understand it for the life of me....hehehehe

Thanks for the help, my team is listed below (Not the one in the signature block). Thanks again and WHIR!!!

Your hitting is fine, save for catcher. I'd see if there's someone better than Molina on the WW.

Pitching is the real Achilles heel here. You don't have a 1st or 2nd tier pitcher to anchor your staff. You're also not going to be competitive in saves, since the closer situations in Florida and Oakland are so unsettled.

I'd spin off a little of your hitting surplus into a guy like Josh Johnson and a closer.
I never smile if I can help it.... Showing one's teeth is a submission signal in primates. When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life.

Your catcher is fine. (#2 currently)

I do agree you need to get better starting pitching.

Thank you for the replies....

I agree with LinAZ....Molina is a pretty good Catcher and if not I have Inge to go in the Catcher spot and replace him at anytime so I don't believe there is a need there.

As far as the Pitchers go...I agree with the both of you. I will try and score a trade but people in my league are not very trade friendly. Also, people aren't the brightest tool in the shed either as they dropped Phillips and BJ Upton outright to the WW and even though I really didn't need Phillips (I have Cano and Hill already)or even Upton too much I couldn't let them just sit on the WW like that!

Who do you all think I should try and package together to trade off? Not sure which 2B I should try and trade (Cano, Phillips or Hill?) and I was also thinking....is it a good idea to possibly ship Dempster, Joba and/or Zambrano as well since they have been far from explosive and try and land some heavy upgrades for my named guys?

Any idea of which SP's and RP's to target?

I know I have many questions but I really need help in order to get my ranking to rise again and don't really have a clue on Rottissere and really no clue on decent trades or not!

Thanks again and WHIR!!!

Trade away B Phillips, you've got too many 2nd basemen(Cano, Hill and B Phillips), he's the best of the group that will get you a decent pitcher.

Hey man, your offense is loaded but as the others have said your pitching needs help. Try dealing either Hill, Atkins, or Phillips for a solid SP, go for Josh Johnson, Danks, Bedard, or someone on that level.
