Advice welcome for improving my team (need some)

Postby Happy Homer » Sun Apr 06, 2003 2:03 pm

Sup, I play in a private yahoo fantasy league with 10 people and need some advice on my team, who to trade for, who to pick up and how i should set my lineup. I'm pretty solid in the hitting department, but my pitching staff needs some work. Some notable waiver possibilities that I've been pondering are Jake Peavy, Carl Crawford, Raul Ibanez and Jay Payton. If there are any other unknown sleepers they're probably available because this is a small league. Also if you suggest a pick-up, who should I drop? My glaring weakness is stolen bases and saves. Any help would be appreciated, thanks! :-?

I would move Hunter or Wells for pitching. I don't think Hunter will better last year's numbers, and he seems to get overhyped. He could bring in a nice starter like Mulder or Moose. Wells is a nice up and coming player and will put up some nice numbers, but his value will probably be a bit inflated right now beause he's on fire. But try to trade Hunter for an SP first, and move Wells into his spot.

Get rid of Charles Johnson. I had him on my team up until this morning, until I finally allowed other people to convince me he was terrible. And he is. There should be a couple catchers in a 10 team league worth more than him.

If you are looking for some sleeper saves you can pick up either Todd Worrell on the Giants or Steve Kline on the Cardinals for a temporary solution. I would drop Acevedo.

Charles Johnson has been horrible lately so I dropped him for Ausmus. Any other suggestions?
