Slow Start to my Team....WHIR as always

Postby ob187 » Tue May 04, 2010 3:44 am

What should I do with my team?

I'm in a 5x5 10 team roto league. I'm in 9th place....my team has gotten off to an awful start.

Is Carlos Pena enough for AJ Burnett and Leo Nunez?

you definitely got unlucky with a couple of those-peavy wont pitch this bad all season, and lee and lilly just got back which should help pitching-wise.
id look to drop barajas, there's gotta be someone you can get off the wire that'll produce more than a half-time catcher, especially with IRod looking good so far.

you might also look for some better pitching, i feel like burnett would be a good pickup as baker is so-so and lilly has yet to really show if he's gonna get his full velocity back soon, so you need to be careful with those 2

overall id focus on pitching, dotel is a trainwreck so id almost say drop him if there are decent options available, qualls looks like he's getting himself together so look for improvement from him, and soria's fine. your starters are alright but while hudson, lee, johnson, and dempster are reliable, you still are probably looking at playing a lot of teams with better rotations so look around and see if there's any better pitchers who are performing poorly that you might be able to buy low (most of the red sox staff come to mind, i was able to grab peavy off waivers, etc.).

also imo brett gardner should not be on your bench but thats just me

I agree, Gardener and DLee arent ideal bench guys, I would see if I could DLee/AJones for a more reliable OF'r maybe, and it does look like a more reliable SP is needed. and Pena is an absolute Average killer. I'd trade him for anyone who can bat over .290, or get that SP and bump you bench into utility.

Any thoughts on mine?
