My hitting situation

Postby wannabthechamp » Mon May 03, 2004 10:18 pm

Hey, everyone, I'd like some help on my current hitting situation. First of all, here's my team:

C A. Pierzynski
1B M. Sweeney
2B M. Loretta
3B A. Ramírez
SS M. Tejada
OF B. Giles
OF I. Suzuki
OF J. Edmonds
Util R. Hidalgo
BN C. Jones
BN G. Anderson


SP M. Clement
SP M. Mussina
SP M. Buehrle
SP M. Mulder
RP A. Rhodes
RP D. Kolb
P T. Wakefield
P B. Looper
P A. Pettite
BN A. Eaton
DL M. Prior

As you can tell, from some trades, I have about 6 outfielders that really aren't benchable. Right now it's not a problem because Chipper and GA are injured, but both could return soon, so my question is this: Who should I play?? Should I just set my lineup based on matchups or play one guy more than the other? Any advice would be appreciated.

I would try to package 1 or maybe even 2 of these guys for some help at other posistions. Maybe infield infield or relief pitching.

Well, I forgot to mention, people in my league seem hesitant to make any trades right now, I'm not sure why, but I've tried with many managers and even very fair deals were turned down.

well, you know both chipper and GA will come back and have good years because neither has an injury that should cause lasting effects. having said that, i think GA is your most valuable player, even more so than edmonds and hidalgo because of the numbers he's put up in the past, the lineup he's in, and the fact that he's playing on a team with an owner willing to pay for anyone to get this team into the playoffs. i'd say hidalgo's value is a little higher than it actually should be, so i'd package him with someone else to get a big time infielder that you know will produce, maybe like posada. also, try trading one of those guys straight up for michael young, he's looking prime for a very productive year in avg, rbi's, h, r, moreso than loretta who's playing in a very pitcher-friendly ballpark in petco.
