who will cry with me?

Postby DL » Tue Jun 08, 2004 4:54 pm

11-team league, my current pitching staff:

Pedro Martinez (4.40)
Mark Prior (0.00)
Josh Beckett (4.06)
Greg Maddux (4.13)
Johan Santana (5.51)
Oliver Perez (3.20)
Zack Greinke (2.37)
Trevor Hoffman (1.80)
Eddie Guardado (0.99)
Danny Kolb (1.25)
Troy Percival (5.09)
Damaso Marte (2.82)


I am in 2nd to last place in ERA in my league with an ERA of 4.00...I could just shoot myself!

Pedro, Beckett, Maddux, Santana, and Percival all with ERA's over 4!

That combined with crappy outputs during the year from Jose Acevedo, Bronson Arroyo, Mike Hampton, Rich Harden, and even Oliver Perez when I've had him in there have killed me...anyone else in a similar situation?

I'm doin worse than you. A week ago I had a 1.51 whip with 5.17 era.

Now it's down to 1.42 and 4.69, but that's still brutal.

I just can't believe where I am with the pitchers on my roster. What more can I do?

My ERA has lowered greatly over the past three weeks, but at the beginning of the season I was hovering around 5.00-6.00. Well, does Colon and Ortiz ring a bell?

I'll cry.

My team log has 8+ ERA from the following players: Contreras (16.43), Riley, Colon, Koch, Bonderman, and Tomko. Biddle's at 6.92 in my log and Johan's at a healthy 7.66.

My WHIP is 1.50 and ERA is 4.84 (soon to be more thanks to Affeldt). However, there are two worse ERAs and one worse WHIP in my league. Crazy.
