12 team yahoo standard 5x5 h2h BIG MONEY LEAGUE WHIR!

Postby roidrage08 » Tue May 21, 2013 8:52 am

I really love my team...have swung a couple deals. I realize I have zero speed. I am not gonna even try to go the speed rout. I'd rather slug myself to a championship.

Your infield looks good, maybe try to get a little better in ss if anything although Miggy makes up for basically any sort of power you don't have in the entire lineup. If you can find a way to upgrade the outfield a little bit it wouldn't hurt either, Hamilton hopefully is turning a corner so he'll be fine of course

For pitching, maybe look on the ww for better options, stick with your big guns in the rotation obviously, they'll be dynamite down the stretch

Help me out? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=460846

I agree with HoneyNutIchiros11..you have solid pitching but I'd also look to the WW for alternative pitching options...I'd consider dropping Detweiler and/or Norris and then either stream on a weekly basis or see if you can pick up someone like Brandon McCarthy, Tommy Milone or A.J. Griffin instead. Solid team overall though for sure.

Well jered weaver is off the DL so that is huge and I keep looking for a reason to drop bud norris but he keeps racking up the quality starts. If he starts pitching like shit he will be the first one I drop. As far as SS goes how can I argue with what perallta has done so far. He has basicly been my 3rd best hitter behind davis and cabrera

Not only are you punting stolen bases, but your also making no attempt at batting average. You have Miguel, so you are at a solid start....but I am not a believer in Hamilton as he was awful if you remove his amazing month last year, and you also have Adam Dunn, who is not an avg killer. I'm ok with that, but low averages normally mean low runs also. So those are 3 of your 5 cats.

Pitching staff is descent, I think Greinke will start pitching better, but in a h2h league, you need to remember Feenandez will be on a tight innings limit. He may not be there to help you in the fantasy post season.

If billy butler would start being the billy butler that we have come to love that would be a big avg help
