Help Evaluating my team especially my outfield!!!

Postby Guest » Fri Aug 23, 2002 2:49 pm

Hello,

I'm in 2nd place in a tight 10 team 4x4 league. I'm only 5 points behind the 1st place leader so if MLB doesn't strike I may have a shot at the top spot. Here are my stats and batting lineup:

Batting Statistics:

BA (4th) .279 (1st place leader has .286 BA)
HR (1st) 259 (2nd place team has 257)
RBI (1st) 874 (2nd place team has 855)
SB (4th) 108 (1st place leader has 118)

Lineup:

Rodriguez, Ivan TEX C
Marrero, Eli STL C
Bagwell, Jeff HOU 1B
Spivey, Junior ARI 2B
Chavez, Eric OAK 3B
Rodriguez, Alex TEX SS
Guerrero, Vladimir MON OF
Jones, Andruw ATL OF
Anderson, Garret ANA OF
Kearns, Austin CIN OF
Payton, Jay COL OF
Hinske, Eric TOR U
Huff, Aubrey TB U

I feel my outfield is the only thing that could use improving because I need steals, but Alex Sanchez has been slumping. Any suggestions?

Pitching Stats

ERA (5th) 3.58 (1st place has 3.42 ERA)
K's (2nd) 1005 (1st place has 1006)
Wins (3rd) 78 (1st place has 85)
Saves (7th) 68 (6th place has 71)

Pitching Lineup

Lidle, Cory OAK P
Benes, Andy STL P
Moss, Damian ATL P
Johnson, Randy ARI P
Halladay, Roy TOR P
Prior, Mark CHC P
Wolf, Randy PHI P
Julio, Jorge BAL P
Urbina, Ugueth BOS P

I've given up on saves recently and dropped Wohlers and picked up Wolf. I have a 20 save lead on the 8th place team so I think I'll be fine with 2 closers the rest of the way. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

This team is rock solid - no wonder you're in the hunt for the title. You can still gain ground, but have to make sure you don't fall behind in the power categories. Your of is excellent. If you need speed, maybe guys like Dave Roberts or the surprising Eric Young are available - inserting a speed-only guy at one of your utility spots might be a good idea.

Your pitching staff is fine - 1st place in k's should be a reachable goal.

You'll need a few lucky breaks to win your league, but the pieces are in place. Gaining points in sb might be the first step toward the top. Now if only they don't strike...

(I'm in the same position as you, by the way - 2nd place, 4 points out of 1st. and desperately hoping for a labor agreement...)

Hinske has been slumping, while Huff is extremely hot. I'd go with Huff. Neither is a sure thing, so why not play the hot hand.
