how is this team? WHIR

Postby Bloody Nipples » Fri Jun 25, 2004 2:01 pm

Here is my 5x5 midseason h2h league:

C Vmart
1B Giambi
2B Scott Hairston
3B Rolen
SS Rollins
OF Abreu
OF Nixon
OF Dye
Util Dmitri Young
BN Koskie
BN Chipper
DL M Giles

SP Prior
SP Day
SP Affeldt
RP Krod
RP Lidge
P Otsuka
P BJ Ryan
BN Oswalt
BN Oliver Perez
BN D Wells
DL K Brown

Would it be a good idea to move Rolen? If so, what should I try to get for him?

What do you think of my middle relief strategy? Until yesterday, I had 3 MR, but then got lucky with the Beltran deal, making Lidge the closer. But when Percival comes back, I will again have 3 MR and 2 closers. THey all get me tons of Ks and are great for my WHIP and ERA.

A trade has been proposed to me: I would get Konerko and give up Lidge. I am thinking no, but should I?

Also, any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks.

keep Lidge, Trade Rolen for a frontline starter, (Schmidt, Mulder.)
3B is a rare commodity these days and you have Koskie and Jones(who will soon be 3B eligible)

I agree. I would keep Rolen and try to move guys like D. Young or Hairston.

Your hitting will be solid once Giles comes back.

I would pick up a starter and drop or trade Otsuka. He won't get saves, and unless your league counts holds, he doesn't help enough in the other categories to warrant a place on your team.

Thanks for the input. I have decided to not trade Rolen unless its for Arod somehow. What could I get for Young and/or Hairston? I have also decided to keep all my MR, unless I can get a solid closer somehow. I dont want to sacrifice ERA and WHIP for just saves, so the closer will have to have good ratio cats, too.
