Strategy help - make up games or use roster spots elsewhere?

Postby fiz » Wed Aug 04, 2004 11:12 am

I'm a bit behind in max games (C -9, 2b -6) and am wondering if it's a better strategy to keep my backup C and 2B and try to make up some ground in these positions (ie - play backup C or 2B when my starter sits), or should i just take the loss in games, and use these spots for other players (closer, sp, etc) - thanks for any help...

Well what do you need? Are you behind in innings? Are you lacking saves and there's a closer availiable? How do you stand in the hitting cats?

Need more information.

overall im doing really well - im in 2nd place and am in top 3 of most categories except horrible in the win column and could use some whip help - i guess ill just stay put and rotate these guys in, it just seems that i could use those roster spots in more productive ways (though maybe it's not true) - im also 3rd in saves with no chance of catching the 2nd or 1st place person, and im not gonna get caught by the 4th place person, so i might just drop wickman...

Personally, if I'm behind in wins and have a couple extra bench batters, I will drop those guys and go in search of starters that will nab me a few more wins......
