How am I not in first?!

Postby DbacksRback » Mon Jul 29, 2013 2:53 pm

Anyone else have a team they feel like they should be in first but struggling? My main team I felt all of my picks "clicked" and sleepers hit yet I'm sitting in 6th

Hitting is a mix of: Kinsler, Encarnacion, Tulo, Puig, Wright and Bruce

Pitching is incredible IMO( Traded Iwakuma for Kinsler, Darvish/Lind for Encarnacion and Hamels:
Miller, Beachy, Hamels, Wainwright, Scherzer, Corbin, Leake, Delgado, Peralta, Peavy

I know there's still time but anyone else stuck scratching their head with what they see as a good team?

In my main cash league I felt pretty good coming away from the draft, but my offense has been dreadful (32 of a possible 60 points). My pitching is stacked & keep me afloat. I was in first for a couple of weeks, but have since fallen into 2nd place. I'm just waiting (hoping) for some of these guys to start picking up the pace.

c - Sal Perez / M. Montero
1B - LaRoche
2B - Kipnis
3B - C. Johnson
SS - Escobar
UI - Rendon
UI - Asd. Cabrera
OF - Harper
OF - Cespedes
OF - Butler (DH qualify as OF in this league)
OF - Papi
OF - Puig
OF - Morneau

DL - Gyorko
DL - Kemp
DL - Aramis

P - Strasburg
P - Kershaw
P - Harvey
P - Shelby
P - Wainwright
P - Kluber
P - Kimbrel
P - Balfour
P - Perkins

I expected more for my catcher duo. Harper & Kemp have a missed a lot of time. Cespedes and Butler really haven't done much yet. I'm ready to move on from Escobar too with some decent FA options available. I really could use the AVG and steals that he can provide though.

Here's to hoping for a strong finish!

I have 8 teams. After all the drafts were over, I had one team that I thought had the best OF possible in a 12 team redraft.

Kemp, Hamilton, Cespedes

Boy, was I wrong.
