Frustrated with my (5X5) team

Postby Krueger77 » Wed May 04, 2005 9:34 pm

I am stuck in third place in an eight team, 5X5 league. I truly thought I would at least be contending for 1st place, but I find myself instead closer to the 4th and 5th teams then to the first and second. Here is my team:
C: Brandon Inge
1B: Pujols
2B: Mark Loretta
3B: Adrian Beltre
SS: Jimmy Rollins
OF: Manny Ramirez
OF: Ichiro
OF: Adam Dunn
Util: Justin Morneau/Jason Bay
SP: Jake Peavey; AJ Burnett; Carlos Zambrano; Brad Radke; John Patterson; (Wade Miller, DL)
RP: Brad Lidge; (Isringhausen, DL); Brandon Lyon; Denys Baez; LaTroy Hawkins

Beltre, Rollins, Loretta and even Manny have all underperformed, and offense is where I'm hurting the most for points. So should I relax and be patient or is the team not as good as I thought?

Here are the top 2 teams:
1st place
C: Mauer
1B: Delgado/Konerko
2B: Brian Roberts
3B: Melvin Mora
SS: Jeter
OF: Beltran
OF: Carl Crawford
OF: Gary Sheffield
Util: L.Gonzalez
SP: Randy Johnson; Pedro; K. Escobar; Freddy Garcia; Vasquez
RP: Rivera; Takatsu; Brazoban; Herges; Turnbow

2nd Place
C: Javy Lopez
1B: Derek Lee
2B: Soriano
3B: ARod
SS: Furcal
OF: Garrett Anderson
OF: Corey Patterson
OF: Cliff Floyd
Util: Huff/ Aramis Ramirez
SP: Moyer; Clemens; Smoltz; Brett Myers; R. Lopez; Jason Schmidt
RP: Dotel; Foulke; Guardado; Graves

I'll do as asked and post some advice to one or two others, but right now my confidence is shaken and I fear my advice might be useless.
I'll listen to all advice. Be honest.

Roberts, Lee, and ARod are all off to firey starts, but don't worry: your team is solid and your offense doesnt have many weak links. Beltre will come around, as will Manny.
