1st Place ... where to improve? WHIR

Postby hartmtown » Wed May 26, 2010 6:19 am

I'm in first place in my league, about 13 games ahead of the #2 guy in my division. Still, I'm looking to get better since several of my players are due for a cooling off period.

I'm interested in general comments. Where do I need to improve? What pitchers should I try to replace? What positions do I look to upgrade? Any and all advice is welcome.

Leave a link and I'll respond to you.

Standard Yahoo league, 5x5 h2h. Play two SP spots, 2 RP spots and 4 general pitcher spots.

C- Soto
1B- Gonzalez
2B- Utley
SS- Bartlett
3B- Zimmerman
OF - Crawford
OF- Rios
OF- Dunn (also 1b-elig)
Util- M. Young
Util- D. Ortiz
BN- Granderson
DL- Ethier

SP (2) - Haren, Lester, Verlander, Gallardo, Romero, Marcum, Buchholz, Wilson, Leake
RP (2) - Marmol, Capps, Ohman, Hoffman (BN), Street (DL), Gonzalez (DL)

I actually really like your team. Who do you think is going to cool off? Ethier was way underrated by Yahoo, his numbers are legit and with Crawford and Granderson you have a great OF. Ortiz is Ortiz, you never know with that guy but his May was legit.. I think he may fall off of the map after the all star break but he should be fine until then. (If there is a Sox fan in your league, trade Ortiz for someone like Elvis Andrus or another 1B.. or a pitcher.) I'm not the biggest fan of your SPs. Haren, Lester and Verlander are all you've got. Then again I am still hanging on to Matusz so what do I know.. but if Ervin Santana is still a FA in your league pick that boy up. All I know is that you've got 6 SPs who you can NEVER be sure about, no matter who they play. If you want to keep talking then do me a favor and list the first 5 pitchers and first 5 hitters who are FAs with the highest percentage owned in your league. Here's the link to my post. Thanks. viewtopic.php?t=413144
