Improvements needed? WHIR

Postby Gwtaylor76 » Wed May 11, 2011 10:44 pm

I started out very slowly but have moved into .500 with two strong weeks. Head to head, 21 categories. 14 teams.

Each night we have 3 starting pitchers, 3 relief and 2 generic pitchers, that's why I think I need another RP. We don't track WHIP for some reason. Also would like some speed on O.

I really want to pick up some more SB but i don't know who to drop. There's also a few relief pitchers I'd like to bring in because of the possibility of them playing every night, but don't know who to drop. Here's my team:

C - Napoli
1B - Gaby Sanchez
2B - Uggla
3B - Bautista
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Swisher
OF - Soriano
OF - Damon
Utility - Infante
BN - Boesch
BN - Roberts (Arizona)

Starting Pitching:
Verlander
Gallardo
Duensing
Ervin Santana
Pineda
Drabek
Bucholz (Bost)

Relief Pitching:
Brian Wilson
Walden
F. Cordero

There's guys like Beachy and Carmona I'd like to claim off waivers, but who do you drop? Do i drop big names like Gallardo or Santana because they've been my worst this year? Or young guys like Duensing, who's been pretty good....or a young Drabek who started hot and has been getting lit up lately?

What about S Sanchez, Albuquerque or Madson as available RPs?

Any help/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I am not really familiar with your league settings but I think you have a solid team. I would say that you could drop Drabek, Duensing or Santana. I think that I would prefer to have Carmona, Beachy, and Duensing (I guesse with your league settings). As for the available relievers I would'nt touch anyone from STL. Madsen would be a nice pick up but his only downside is that he probably won't help for long with lidge coming back. Maybe I'd go Carmona, Beachy, and Madsen?....

Thank you for the help. I think I'll drop Drabek for now....I have a hard time dropping Santana because he's a big name, but admittedly, he's been one of, if not, the worst pitcher on my club.
