In 1st Place, but is trouble looming?

Postby klocektime » Tue May 19, 2009 11:38 am

Hello All,

After an 11-2 victory last week I have now moved into a tie for first place in my league. I will put my roster below and then pose the questions I have as I forsee some potential shortcomings - standing put isnt really an option, and as you all probably know, will never win you a league (although a preemptive move can hurt just as bad)

C - Victor Martinez
1B - Fielder, Votto
2B - Ramirez, Kendrick (really trying to figure out what to do here )
SS - H Ramirez
3B - Zimmerman, Chipper
OF - Ibanez, Ethier, Magglio

2B is killing me. On waivers are iwamura, asdrubal cabrera, alberto callaspo, and freddy sanchez. Both my guys have potential upside but have been mad lackluster so far. Pickup someone (who do I wave) or try and package a trade?

In the outfield I am starting to become concerned about Ethier - he still bats cleanup on a good team, but has gone downhill fast. Magglio seems to be starting to come around. On waivers is shin soo choo, kendry morales, fukudome, pierre?? Not really thinking about waiving anyone to pick one of these guys up, but just throwing it out there.

Then pitching
Starters - Lee, Santana, Bedard, Cain, Cueto, Myers (Webb DL)
Closers - Capps, Gregg (Francisco and Valverde on DL)

I kind of want to grab a 3rd closer as I keep losing that category - thoughts about waiving valverde to pickup -- sherril, CJ wilson??

Overall what do you think about the points mentioned, and about roster in general?

WHIR

THANKS

OH and Jason Bartlett is on waivers - he's been nasty lately and the rays are getting hot. I wouldnt necessarily have anywhere to start him but what do you think
