Can this team hold out? Leave a link...

Postby andrew14 » Tue May 31, 2005 1:43 pm

I'm in first right now, but the last two weeks have narrowed the gap between me and everyone else, and now I'm losing to the guy right behind me...will this team still be in first at the end, or should I make some changes, and if so, where? Should I make any trades? I'll help anyone who leaves a good reply.

Nothing really you can do through WW. Westbrook maybe, he's not as bad as his stats.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

I think your hitting is very solid, particularly on your infield, and there's no-one on waivers that I would consider an improvement.

Re: your pitchers, I'm not sold on Wagner or W. Miller, I personally think Street and Westbrook would be better pickups there respectively, Westbrook's record is deceiving, he's actually had a lot of quality starts.

You also have three quality catchers who I'm sure have a fair bit of trade value and you can't start them all, try to trade one (or maybe even two of them) to help you with other needs.

Thanks for helping with mine, btw. ;-D

I would look to trade a catcher for an upgrade somewhere, perhaps utility or first base. Look for the Javy owner. I also agree with Street and Westbrook over Miller and Wagner. By the time Dotel comes back, there will be another reliever available, there always is. RP is a revolving door. Thanks for the reply. Good luck.

I agree with the others. You look in good shape... but keep an eye on Wade Miller. If he flops today, then maybe look to swap him out. Street is also a better option than Wagner at this point.

I think you're pretty solid overall, and unlike other people, I like the move of having Inge at catcher. He'll get more appearances than most and he's been solid so far.

Solid team, not much you can do besides keep an eye on Street/Weathers and try to deal a Catcher.

Thanks for replying to my topic.

I think that you could stand an upgrade at 1B over Hafner... additionally, you could afford to trade a catcher, as you are currently carrying three (as you know...). Also, you're offense will improve once Berkman starts hitting again... you may want to place V-Mart there now as it appears that he's starting to hit.

There doesn't appear to be much help on the WW. MacPherson is hot right now... but you don't need him at 3B as you have Mora. You may consider picking him up and playing him at Utility while he's hot. As for a pitcher, I agree with another poster who suggesting maybe picking up Westbrook... his record is horrible but he has pitched well over his last four starts....

thanks for helping with mine.

I also think you should deal one of the catchers for someone. Maybe try to get another top notch closer. You're pretty solid though, I don't really see anywhere that absolutely NEEDS improvement. Well, unless hafner doesnt start hitting.
