Make a Move or Sit Tight? What's your style?

Postby Captain Jack Sparrow » Thu Apr 08, 2004 12:28 pm

It's week one and see players being added and dropped like crazy. It makes me nervous (which i tend to be anyway) should i be making moves?

Normally I just wait it out for 2 weeks before i do anything. (unless i'm picking up the other impatient owners' "trash") What's your opinion? Are you an early mover or do you wait and watch?

I'm an early mover with my lower picked guys. I like making trades before the season too.

I'm more patient I think than most managers in my leagues. I tend to ride out a slumping storm unless I see someone cut and dry better than someone I already own.

I agree. I'm especially riding out the 1/13 Giles slump ;-D
But that's an obvious one.
Someone dropped Livian? Missed out on that one unfortunately.
But yeah, I watch closely for drop mistakes and try to pickup the last of the guys in FA who won't be there for long. Perhaps dropping my last two draft picks which were flyers.

My style is like yours Cap'n. I like to wait a bit before I dump some of my guys (even the late rounders)

Trying very hard to sit tight. In my most competitive league (at least active manager wise)....we have 10 teams with 19 player rosters. Sooooo...their are some pretty damn good names on FA right now. Catch is...you have to drop a pretty good player to pick one of them up. FA list currently has names such as...Patterson, Klesko, Burrell, Kearns, Konerko, JD Drew, J Nathan, Brett Myers, Gil Meche,...well you get the picture. I am keeping a close eye on a few of those!

Definitely keep an eye on Burrell. Been watching the Phillies the last few days and he looks like he could be back to his old self, and I love it. Konerko too.

Without a doubt keeping an eye on Burrell. I traded to get him last season right after the draft and kept him all season hoping he would snap out of it. So I guess you could say he owes me! LOL!

Well, this is my first season, but I don't see the sense in drafting a team and then making panic changes after a couple of games.

Unless there's an obvious situation like a long-term injury, or I get offered a trade that's really good for me, I'll sit tight until a couple of weeks in.
