OK, we are in a 10 team Yahoo head to head league and I am in last place. We start 1 at each position player, 3 OF and 1 util plus 2 SP 2 RP and 2 P. I know my pitching is week, but even my offenses reeks right now. What should I do? I just dropped F. Thomas and H. Nomo for J. Kennedy and M. Lawton. SHould I make some trades or hold tight and wait for Giambi, Soriano, and either of my 3rd basemen to start hitting? Also, pitching is hard to come by in our league so anyone think of an easy fix for my roster?

ok wow!!! y did u drop thomas and nomo? they are great fantasy players or at least way better tha u can find on the waiver wire. who cares if they didnt do good in the first 2 weeks. THE FIRST 2 WEEKS OF THE SEASON MEAN NOTHING!!!!! Most of the guys that r shining will slowly dim down and do nothing. pick thomas and nommo back up. ok now secondly, ur 3rd basemen suck ,no offense, see if u could add castilla from the waiver wire he will help u. Ur pitrching isint horrible its bad but its not horrinble. drop j kennedy and add nomo and glavine or benson if they r still in the waiver wire. Lastly, DROP URBINA, u have no neeed for him. hes not even the saves guy yet. see if mesa, looper, graves, chacon, rhodes, or kolb r in the fa so u can add one of them. They are all quality closers.
plz rate my team its called best overall team ever
I would look elsewhere at 3b. I picked up Beltre on waivers in my league - same format as yours. Yes, it is only April and he won't keep it up, but Ensberg has been platooned 2 times already for Lamb, so that was it for me. It is also curious to me that he skipped 2 games I believe in late March for "personal reasons" and now he's having a slow start and is losing PT. Or that could be the conspiracy theorist in me coming out.
I've got Giambi as well and he'll come around. See if you can get Thomas back.

"There's something happening, and you don't know what it is. Do you, Mr. Jones?"
OK, why don't you guys tell me how you really feel/
The reason I moved Thomas off my team was because I figured with Giambi at First and no real spot for Thomas to play, he is just eating space on my bench, so wouldn't it make more sense to get someone that has a better chance to play for me.
As for Nomo, yes he has wins this year but his ERA is over a 6. I know he was good last year, but what about the year before? I trust you guys know more about this than me, but doesn't it make any sense to go with someone that may have a break out season especially when Nomo is not pitching very well at all?
Now try and hold back the overly critical comments. I am by no means a fantasy baseball manager, and this league is just for fun anyway (no money is on the line). I know baseball but not like you guys do. I really prefer hockey, but like I said its a for fun league at work. I made a few changes yesterday after a couple of the posts. ..
I dropped Urbina and picked up Benson. I dropped M. Riley and picked up J. Mesa, and I dropped Ensberg and picked up S Burroughs.
I will try to get Thomas and Nomo back, but would prefer it if someone could tell me where I can play thomas and why I should pick someone with a 6 era over someone like Kennedy or Radke. Thanks for the helpful comments.
