How to improve AVG in ROTO?

How to improve AVG in ROTO?

Postby boma » Wed Jul 01, 2009 1:47 pm

This is my first time playing ROTO and right now I'm in 4th place out of 10 teams.

Here are my points right now in the league
R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP
8 10 9 5 1 6 7 3 6 4

If I can just be in the middle of the pack in AVG I would easily be in 2nd place.
How do I improve in AVG? Do I just get high AVG guys like Ichiro or is it too late
in the season to do anything about it?

Ichiro is the ultimate high AVG guy, if you can trade for him, you will not only be getting a higher AVG, but SB too.

It's not too late to make up ground in AVG. There is still half a season to be played. You will likely need to sacrifice some power to raise your AVG. Jason Bay has been insane this year, but his AVG isn't that good. I'd shop him around and see what I could get for him, and you can probably get a lot right now.

You are doing OK with the power numbers, so whatever you do, don't start Chris Davis. You gotta figure A-Rod will come around eventually and he'll hit for a better AVG, so if you manage to substitute a .260 guy for a .310, you should be able to make up some ground and you can take the hit on the power numbers.
