I am currently in a 6*6 H2H 8 Team League. I have been struggling greatly the last two weeks winning about 5 categories combined. I could use some advice on if is should upgrade on certain positions via trade or via free agency. Here is my team:
C: Mauer 1B: Ryan Howard 2B: Utley SS: Andrus 3B: Reynolds OF: Mccutchen OF: CarGO OF: Brett Gardner UTIL: Adrian Gonzalez UTIL: Billy Butler
Here are some notable free agents at each position:
1B: Derek Lee, Paul Konerko 2B: Uggla, Kelly Johnson 3B: Michael Young, Chase Headley SS: Furcal, Ryan Theroit OF: Gutieerez, Ibanez, Carlos Lee, Ludwick, SP: Danks, Romero, Phil Hughes RP: Bobby Jenks, Leo Neunez
Any advice on what to do? All your advice is appreciated.
Peavy is killing his owners, but I'd try to hold on there. Polanco and Beckham give you the same position eligibility, it seems like overkill to carry them both on the bench. Maybe a bit of overkill on speed, although I like all those steals guys (Andrus, McCutchen, Gonzalez, and Gardner). Of the fas, I like Danks, and it wouldn't hurt in such a small league to carry Nunez as a 3rd closer. A lot of good hitters there.
But a good team overall. No panic, maybe just a couple moves.
