HELP...Dropped from 2nd to 7th in the past 4 weeks. WHIR

Postby tgt2e » Mon May 31, 2010 11:52 am

So I've dropped from 2nd place in week 3 to 7th place here in week 8. I feel like I have a solid team, but they're underperforming. So tell me, should I stick it out or should I try to make some drastic changes (i.e. try to pull a big name trade w/ Utley,Upton,CC). I'm in a 10 team H2H keeper league (5 keepers). Categories followed by my rank in each in parenthesis: R (2nd), HR (4th), RBI (8th), SB (9th), AVG (9th), OBP( 8th), K (9th), W (5th), L (2nd), SV (1st), ERA (7th), WHIP (10th). Here's my team:

C Wieters
1B Cuddyer
2B Utley
3B Youkilis
SS Orlando Cabrera
LF Lind
CF Victorino
RF J Upton
UTIL Callaspo
UTIL David Ortiz
BENCH Ludwick
DL Asdrubal Cabrera
DL Sizemore

SP Jimenez
SP Sabathia
SP Hamels
SP Pettite
SP Kuroda
SP Gio Gonzalez
SP Floyd
SP Vazquez
SP Aroldis Chapman
RP Capps
RP Raf Soriano
RP Broxton

Obviously I need RBI's and SB's...but those usually don't come with the same player. I pulled a Pedroia for CC trade a few weeks ago and CC has yet to get me a W. Kind of regretting it, but I feel like CC's numbers will be there at year end. Any advice is appreciated and returned. Thanks.

I like your pitching overall...stay put there. Those guys will perform.
When I look at your team, I see depth at 3B and 2B, and some in RF. I'd think that moving a big piece like Utley/Youlilis would help you fill 2 cats of need via 2 players possibly. But those guys are part of the reason you have a good R, HR rank. In time they will help you with RBI, OPS, AVG and all the other places you are struggling. I'd stay put and hope these guys will produce on par with their career numbers.

you may have to ride it out ,i think your team is solid and sabathia trade was a good one he will come around and you have utley at 2nd base. get a steal guy like gardner or davis shouldnt cost a arm and a leg .
