But do you honestly think that people like Giambi, Bonds, Hildago, Huff and so on are going to get 44 RBIs for the year?
I disagree that I should be making trades... Almost all those guys (with the exception of Lo Duca, Cintron and Vidro) should end up in the 90-120 RBI range. If I trade them I'd be trading away potential for something probably not that good. For example - if I was to trade Barry Bonds and Aubrey Huff, I probably wouldn't be able to get much more in return than Andru Jones and Hideki Matsui... and that would be a HORRIBLE trade in the long run (or should be). I'll ride the slump out, but it just sucks that my entire team is slumping together.
And a side note, this team drove in 36 week 1 and 32 in week 2... so they CAN do it... they're just haven't been for the past 3 weeks.
I wasn't suggesting that you trade your studs. I was suggesting that you upgrade your weaker players (LoDuca, Vidro, Koskie, Cintron, Haffner).
Here are a couple of teams to compare yours to:
SS: Jack Wilson (temporary until Nomar's return)
OF: H. Matsui
U: Juan Gonzalez
Plus Dave Roberts on the bench. Other than Phillips and the current playing of Jack Wilson, it's a fairly powerful lineup.
3B: M. Cabrera
OF: B. Giles
OF: H. Matsui
U: Dave Roberts
Konerko on the bench in that one.
Both of those are 12 team leagues and both teams have a flaw here and there, but I'm in the process of upgrading my weaker spots. I was merely suggesting that you might want to do the same. Giambi/Bonds/Hidalgo/Huff is a good solid base for your hitting, but it never hurts to give them some extra help.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
