The Age Old Question: How'd I Do? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Aug 01, 2011 5:32 pm

We all ask this question from time to time: how'd I do on this one? I feel I am one trade for a SP upgrade away from being reasonably set for the playoff run, but thoughts? It's no sure thing btw ... I'm in 7th (due to a 0-for-april start that put me in 11th place by May) but only 6 games back of 1st. Hopefully getting Cargo and A-Rod back in a week to 2 weeks will help.

I gave up: Dustin Ackley and Bud Norris
I received: Andre Ethier


12 Team H2H. We Only Keep 6 Players Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means contract year

i say you did pretty well there. for a 12 team league i'd say you're already set for a playoff run. you're pitching staff looks pretty solid

Well u have no need for norris (his team will never win for him now) and ackley, but just wish u could have turned those 2 into a better player instead of ethier. Also, i dont really see a need for an upgrade at SP, unless im missing something here(maybe league scoring). If possible try to see what u can get for ethier now. He is and always will be an empty BA IMO

Unfortunately the league doesn't value young studs except for one team or two. So I figured I'd get more rbis, a better average, a more walks out of ethier. Possibly more runs given the lineups. But yeah, basically banking on the potential for Ethier to give me offensive consistency since this is H2H and batting average and singles are surprisingly hard stats to win at times.
