Triple - 3
HR - 4
RBI - 1.5
SB - 1

2B - B.Roberts/G.Beckham
SS - Tulowitzki
3B - P.Alvarez/B.Wood

I don't think I've ever seen a points league not consider runs/rbis, and I guess I understand the reasoning, even if I don't agree with it.

Anyway.

I don't like bonifacio, I don't think many do. Your line up seems to be lacking pop, and your tail end of your SP looks shady.

With a points league I would prefer 2 tim hudsons, than one tommy hanson and a A white/ J Mcdonald. Try and see if you can move some of your weaker starting pitching in a package deal for some legitimate starters, but no need to pay for an ace.


Also, I would sell high on wallace, not only will his k's keep hurting you, I highly doubt he can maintain his hitting all season, with his plate discipline, ala reynalds.


All of that said however:

For an 18 team league, I think you've put together a contending team, with just a few minor adjustments I'd make.

It probably seems weird that there's no Runs or RBIs, but there is... I just forgot them.

Runs - 1
RBIS 1.5

Bonifacio is just a super-sub at SS and OF on Monday and Thursdays.
I took the "Wait for pitching" approach, and have dropped a few guys since then... Picking up McDonald, White, Pineiro, etc.

And I'm actually #4 in HR, and #6 in doubles, RBIS I'm in the middle of the pack.

I think if Rios can continue not to stink, and Werth picks it up I can be OK.
I traded for Brian Roberts a few weeks ago (Valverde traded away) and kind of wish I didn't know. I didn't know Beckham would be just as good at this point... Should have just stuck with him.

One more thing, I'd like to package a few lower SPs from my staff, but nobody is really sexy enough you know?

I could see some one buying high on:


K.McClellan
P.Humber
J.Arriett
Alex White


maybe a Mcclellan/white package or substitute humber/arriett.

A bunch of these guys just had good showings.

Also, don't know if it's a keeper league or not.

Sorry for the late response.
It's not a keeper league.

And I just keep dropping... down to 10/18

It's tough when every single player on your team is basically hitting .220

These are my daily averages for the last 10 days:

4/25
3/17
5/28
8/35
4/30
3/35
8/31
8/30
4/23
4/31

51/285 .179

It seems impossible that night after night 9 hitter can only average about 5 Hits.

I'm shopping currently shopping a Tulo package, trying to get like a slight/mid downgrade at SS (S.Drew, J.Reyes) and others to fill in at 3B and 2B.
Something like J.Reyes, Pedroia, Rolen.
I don't know.

Every single night basically I'm 0-8 or 1-9 at those 2 spots, just killing me. Along with those fun 0-5, 3K Werth days.
