Struggling.. Need help where to make changes! WHIR

Postby bpizle » Tue May 15, 2012 11:28 pm

Started the season off 3-0, made some trades that were good, now I've lost 3 in a row and 4 straight is looking like a high possibility. I have played good competition and top scoring teams, but i still think my team is slipping a lot, A guy in my league keeps offering me Jose Bautista but he wants Weaver and Hanley and its a pitcher heavy league in most cases. (I've thought about trading my pitchers and just streaming two starters and load up on bats?) Anyway guys help me decide who/if I should move anyone? And who might be the main cause of this problem!!! Thanks and 100% WHIR!!

I would move dunn for someone or even move Freeman...Grab a outfielder or a picher or both if you package something....No way I give Hanley or Weaver for Bautista....I think Bautista is out of juice..

I think you need help with your pitching. Weaver has been great but that is about it. Josh Johnson has been horrible but it looks like he may be getting back on track. Niemann just broke his leg,so again if I were you I would target pitching. I think Jeter has been playing way over his head so I would try to move him immediately (maybe somebody will fall for his numbers and name). I might also look at moving either Dunn or Joyce. I believe all 3 are letdown possibilities so I would target a pitcher that may have started a little slow but has a high ceiling (Gallardo, Lester, Hanson, Papelbon). If you want to include a pitcher to sell high on as well I would probably trade Wandy. The bottom line is you have several guys you can "sell high" on that can help you upgrade your roster. However, I would make a move soon. I hope this helps.

Take a look at mine?

I'm assuming this is a 12 or 14 team league?

Either way, it looks like you could use another SP and/or closer. I would try and make a trade where you send an OF like Joyce or Melky for a good SP. Also, imo you need 3 closers to win SV's in H2H each week. So if you could get another closer in return as well, that would be a good move for you.
