Team is slipping in the standings, any thoughts? WHIP...

Postby Bferryvt » Thu Jul 30, 2009 10:21 am

12-Team 6x6 h2h money league, Im leading my division, but maybe not by the end of this week. Not sure how I can't keep up right now with this team. Obviously outfield is a weakness, but how to fix it without comprimising my keepers(Hanley, Longoria, Teixeira, Howard, Halladay and one of Lester/Sabathia/McCann). What moves would anyone make, if any? Overall IP/K/Hits/Runs are my lowest categories, but I just got Halladay for Adam Jones/Bedard last week. Glad to help anyone in return for some decent thoughts....I tried moving Howard/Rivera for Braun but that didn't fly.


C - McCann
1B - Teixeira
2B - Alexei Ramirez
SS - Hanley Ramirez
3B - Longoria
IF - Ryan Howard
OF - Brad Hawpe
OF - Josh Willingham
OF - Mark Teahan
OF -Gerardo Para
OF -Seth Smith
Util - Derek Jeter
SP - Sabathia, Halladay, Lester, Porcello, Cook
RP - Rivera, Qualls, Nunez, Downs, McDougal, Hughes
BE - Aybar, Ian Stewart
DL - Webb

Your team looks pretty good and should pick things up soon. Like you said, your outfield is a big weakness as is your relief pitching aside from Rivera.

Assuming you keep six players by the

Thanks for the reply. I would agree, except my biggest weakness seems to be hits and runs, and Jeter(somehow) is leading my team in both of those cat's...and can't give up Lester without getting some solid pitching back in return...

anyone have any thoughts? I have an offer, Howard for Wright that the guy said he's thinking about, but what move would you make to strengthen this outfield?

Yep OF is your weakness. I would look to see who has Granderson and his 250's avg. and make a 2 for 1 with Howard in it. Hopefully the owner of Granderson has an additional offensive player of value to make that deal happen.

Other 2 for 1's I would consider for Howard if the deal is right.

Soriano
Kendry Morales (How many owners think this guy is for real. Hopefully your leagues owner doesnt and can get him on the cheap.)
Juan Rivera (See what else the owner has and if its enough offer Howard.)

I agree with what people are saying above, but you need to find a top of the order outfielder you can plug in. You said you need hits and runs, so that is what you need to focus on getting really. After Hawpe/Willingham, the talent really falls off. I would really try and get a #1/2 hitter from someone to help you out in those categories.
