What needs the most work? (WHIR)

Postby VitiumCloud » Fri May 27, 2011 12:32 pm

Hey... What area do you think needs the most work on my team? It is a nine team, 6x6 roto league. Runs, RBI, AVG, OPS, Steals, & HR + Wins, ERA, WHIP, Saves, Holds, & Strikeouts. My team is;

Cather: VMart
1st: Miggy C
2nd: The Laser Show
SS: Alexi Rameriez
3rd: ARod
OF: Curtis Granderson
OF: CarGo
OF: Matt Joyce
Util: Coco Crisp
Util: Grady Sizemore
Bench: Alex Gordon
Bench: A Huff
Bench: Starlin Castro
DL: Posey
DL: Sandoval

SP: Clayton Kershaw
SP: Justin Verlander
SP: Jamie Garcia
RP: Mariano Rivera
RP: Johnny Venters
P: JJ Putz
P: Grant Balfour (for now)
Bench: Anibal Sanchez
Bench: Mat Latos
Bench: Bud Norris
Bench: Matt Capps
Bench: Liriano

Also, there is an inning cap that I will definitely go over, so I care more about good starts than volume.

Without knowing specifics, my initial thought would be that Norris isn't worth much in your situation, but another solid holds guy might pay off.

The questions really is which categories are you lagging behind in, and utilizing your bench space to maximize opportunities to improve those categories.

I like Norris for strikeouts. I would roster more closers, but there aren't any with the job that are available. No one is really making a push for holds, so Venters is holding strong. I'm in first place in every category except steals, but I'm more curious how people feel about certain players holding up (e.g. Joyce, Gordon, et al.).

If you can't get a good closer, and don't need holds, I think your pitching will be fine. as for whether your players will hold up, I think that there is no reason to think Gordon and Joyce will lose much production. I remember adding Joyce when he was owned 30% and the other managers in my league saying, what a bad move it was. Now, several of these managers are trying to get Joyce from me, lol. Another player most people think will slow down is Grandy, but I'm one of the few who think he won't lose his power production; the Ks he gets are worth his power. If you want steals, try trading Gordon or Castro or Huff for Bourn. I'm not sure it will work but it's worth a try. The last thing I would suggest is to get rid of Liriano, as he's having a very poor season.

I would maybe try to deal Joyce for another good closer. Once Sandoval returns you could play him in the UTIL spot and move Sizemore to the OF. Plus, Joyce's value is at it's highest right now. See what you can get

I'd be moving Joyce as a sell high.... and in a one year league, I am moving Castro and Gordon as well..... Get yourself a bat for outfield or utility. Maybe Joyce and Castro for a Youkilis if the guy is starving for a SS. Youk could help at util, 1B, and 3B.


Help me out!
