Net a RBI bat or stack the rotation? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Apr 04, 2011 1:51 am

On paper, I have one of the most balanced and talented rosters in the league. But the early returns are that my team could use another RBI power bat (only 13 rbis thus far, compared with my opponent's 24). This may be due, in part, to the schedule, Stanton-McCutchen-Snider injuries/sitting out, or just slow starts.
I also am hating the back end of my staff (Wandy, Vazquez, Volquez) ... each has destroyed my pitching line this week.

Based on my team below, should I look to package a hitter and pitcher for a great SP or great power/rbi guy, and if so, who can i afford to move?

Take a breath!
I think you are a bit too worried about your SP right now. It looks totally stacked as-is! If these guys are putting up the same numbers after 3 starts, then you can get worried, but for now, I'd just wait it out...
I like: SP depth and quality at the top, tons of SB potential, great OF depth.

I don't like: RP depth is a bit weak, not sure about your MI, but they both could be great.

help: not sure about your MI, but they both could be great.
