I know there has been 6 days of games so far if you count the Japan ones, but my team is looking soooooo bad right now, I;m really starting to worry. I am last in BA, 2nd to last in ERA, and 3rd to last in WHIP.. I'm worried because I have far more innings pitched than any other team and far more AB's. I'm hitting .226 and my ERA is like 6.60 and I dont have a win yet because I have Mussina, Oswalt, Peavy, and a couple more. Should I ride out Mussina or trade him for a slighty less talent but more upside or what?? I also have Nomah, but of course he's hurt. :-P

Wait it out. Your stats will return to the mean. Nobody should get worked up about being really good or really bad at this point in the season. What has happened so far has basically no effect on what the final standings will be. Maybe an indication, but the stats themselves won't impact very much. If you have under-performing studs (like you do) then there's nothing to worry about.

go the fridge...grab a beer....and just wait. ;-D Mussina will turn it around, and its no use trading him now because he has a lower trade value because of his first 2 starts. Oswalt is a stud as well, the only reason he had a bad game was because of Bond's 3 run HR in the 8th inning. As you said, its only the first week of the season, so no need to worry yet. :-D

Sit back and relax. It's still extremely early in the season and doesn't take much to turn it around and rise in the rankings. :-)

Gotta agree with the other guys! You've got to be patient. Most of all, don't do anything impulsive like get rid of Mussina...your team will come week is a new week! Good luck!
