Sigh! Once again I start horrible. Should I worry?

Postby PiratadeCampeche » Thu Apr 07, 2011 7:36 pm

I'm in a 9 team 5x5 Roto league and just like last year I'm starting horribly. I believe I have a good team I know it's early but should I worry. Here is my team:

Catchers: Mauer and Olivo
1B: Ka'aihue
2B: K. Johnson (Ariz)
SS: H. Ramirez
3B: Longoria (went on DL...sigh) keeper
MI: Figgins
CI: B. Butler
OF: Bourn, Heyward (keeper), D. Young, Crisp, Raburn, McLouth
Bench: Freese (which I intend to release and pick up Y. Escobar)
SP: Gallardo, J. Garcia, Hanson, Liriano (keeper), Oswalt, Pineda, T. Wood, B. Norris, D. Hudson, Strasburg (keeper)
RP: Putz, Hanrahan, Nunez, Franklin

So as you can see most guys are cold as ice I'm hitting just above the Mendoza line and my pitching has been disappointing. Again I know it's early but I'm frustrated because this was the same way I started last year and couldn't really recover since I had the worst April possible. Let me know what you think.

First off- forget about how far ahead or, in your case, behind, you are right now. It's the SECOND week of baseball- a sport that has 162 games!

As for your team, you should always have a stud at 1B in anything below a 12-team league. What happened there?

Otherwise, Johnson is good but about average 2B in a 9-team league. Hanley and Longo are great. FIggins will at least give you SB's and Butler a nice BAvg. I also feel your RP should be better.

This is all considering the size of your league,

Can you provide a list of the best WW players?

Good luck, but don't worry too much- remember...162 games!

Good luck! ;-D
