What can I do to save my mediocre team? *H2H 12 teams*

Postby CubsFan7724 » Mon Mar 22, 2010 11:15 am

6x6, 6th categories are OPS/Holds

C - Mauer
1B - Cuddyer
2B - B Phillips
3B - D Wright
SS - J Reyes
CF - N Morgan
OF - Markakis
OF - C Quentin
UTIL - Hawpe
BN - Swisher
BN - Beltran

SP - Verlander
SP - Kershaw
RP - R Soriano
RP - Qualls
P - M Guerrier
P - R Betancourt
BN - C Hamels
BN - Harang
BN - Kazmir

I definitely need a power bat, at either 1B or in the OF. And a better CF =\ I'm going to really hurt on power categories and OPS unless I can address that...

Agree that you're good in steals, not great, but very good (especially if Reyes only gets 40 SB and Wright gets less than 30). Some of your guys might disappoint or regress compared to previous years (Beltran, Swisher, Hawpe, Quentin, Reyes) so there may be an upgrade needed overall in terms of youth, guys with more upside. Even though Phillips is in his prime right now, chances are your league may have set his value higher than Zobrist's. It's a gamble given Zobrist's experience, but if he gets even close to last year's numbers again over a full season, he will surpass Phillips and be right there with Kinsler and behind Utley. So, I would package Phillips, and when Quentin goes on a mini HR tear, include him. I don't trust Quentin will stay healthy. We know what we're going to get with Swisher now, but since he's streaky, you might be able to include him. Also, despite having Ian Stewart now in the lineup, I just don't like the Rockies offense overall. You have Tulo and a couple of decent pieces setting the table, but I don't see Hawpe improving his numbers that much. I would definitely try to get a better CF.

Also, if you can somehow swing a Reyes for Tulo trade depending on their respective value, that would be great, giving you more HR.

Doubtful I'll be able to swing Reyes for Tulo due to the fact Tulo went like 3 rounds before Reyes. Not until Reyes is 70 steals Reyes.

I'm kinda worried I took Mauer, its doubtful he'll repeat what he did, but hes so ahead of everyone else at catcher right now!

Any other advice/players I could look to deal/deal for

You'll never get Tulo for Reyes but thats ok. There's nothing you can do to save it now. Unless you want to trade Mauer (if you think he won't repeat from last year) He is your biggest trading chip right now. Maybe try to move him for a power hitting 1B maybe a Mark Reynolds or Adrian Gonzalez. I dont think anyone will move a Ryan Howard or Prince Fielder for Mauer but maybe. Your best bet is to wait and see if guys like Quentin and Reyes get off to hot starts then u can move one of them for an upgrade.
