Best Team ever to finish Last...I need help WHIR

Postby Drob » Fri Jul 03, 2009 1:15 am

Guys, I'm going out of my mind. I have a team full of superstars in my 12 team keeper league, but am in dead last. We're in the 2nd year of a keeper league that carries over 12 palyers w/ no salary implications. I am 22 GB of the 6th spot (final playoff team) and am taking a beating this week. We use an 8x8 system: H, R, HR, RBI, SLG, OBP, AVG, SB and W, K, SV, CG, QS, ERA, WHIP, OBPA. Does this team have some glaring weakness that I'm overlooking? What would you do? Trade off all the talent that i won't keep for picks next year? Stick it out and see if they turn it around when Reyes and Ramirez come back? I have about 6 weeks before the trading deadline. that's not alot of time to make up alot of ground.

C - wieters SP - Wainwright
1B - Teixera SP - Nolasco
2B - Kinsler Sp - Edwin Jackson
3B - Miguel Cabrera SP - Smoltz
SS - Barmes SP - Liriano
OF - Sizemore Sp - Maholm
OF - Alfonso Soriano SP - Baker
OF - Braun RP - Jenks
OF - Bruce RP - Aardsma
Util - Sheffield RP - MacDougal
BN - Schumaker RP - Nunez
DL - Jose Reyes DL - Webb
DL - Aramis Ramirez DL - Bedard

I'll help in return if you leave a link to your thread. it may not be worth much coming from a last place manager, but I'll give it a shot.

thats the best last place team i have ever seen lol. i guess you are losing because you have not had your team at 100% because of injuries this year. perhaps you should just look to trade the struggling stars, bruce, sizemore, and pick up some hot bats.

I'd trade Sheff and Barmes for an ace and then just a decent pitcher due to your lack of pitching. Then try and pick up someone to replace them on FAs until Reyes and ARam get back.

I would trade Sheffield and Shumacker for some speed.

There is no way that I could land an Ace caliber pitcher w/ Sheff and schumaker. I might be able to pull in a 4th tier pitcher along the lines of Nick blackburn. the guys in my league are pretty smart and would never go for that kind of a trade.

The speed suggestion is intriguing though. I have Kinsler (25 Sb) Soriano (15 SB) Sizemore (15-20 SB) Reyes benched...but sohuld be good for at least 40 next year if he's healthy...that's 100 SB approximately for next year. which is a pretty good number for the yaer. Who should I realistically target this year? and who should I trade. Right now my keeper list is as follows (feel free to make suggestions on this as well...)

Wieters
Mig Cab
Kinsler
Reyes
Sizemore
Braun
Aramis Ram
Tex
Soriano
Webb
Wainwright
Bruce

Abreu is on the block right now...should I go after him?
