my league is made up of 12 teams and there are 10 hitting categories and 10 pitching categories .. we did our draft already and noones team seems superior to n e 1 elses .. pitching usually is what wins the league but not by a huge margin .. usually it is whoever has the upper half of both

the hittin cats are h, bb, so, avg, sb, 2b, 3b, hr, rbi, r
the pitchin cats are ip, w, l, cg, sho, sv, bb, k, whip, era

i was offered austin kearns for brad radke

my team is:

c-lieberthal 1b-delgado 2b-walker 3b-glaus ss-arod of-ichiro, floyd, dye and jordan mi-ellis ci-huff dh-gibbons

sp-vazquez, wood, radke, wolf, moyer
bench- lidle, wakefield, ponson, juan cruz

rp-smoltz benitez spooneybarger

i know radke had a bad year due to injury but he is usually solid and he did pitch great in the playoffs .. i really like kearns but im not sure how much this helps .. we keep 5 guys after each year so i wouldnt need him to keep unless he really breaks out .. but he does bring avg, good eye, sb and power

n e advice will be greatly apreciated

Your are crazy if you don't take Kearns. There are piles of good pitchers available. Do the deal.

I concur with Hbj...

but Cincy is moving into the new Great American Ball Park..

will it affect Cincy's hitting? does anyone know anything about the park? Is it another softball field like Minute Maid in Houston?

meh. I take that deal...if anything, Kearns is a better 4th outfielder than Brian Jordan.

While the new ballpark does present some unknowns; I would think you have to take Kearns. Too much upside in opinion.

I was in a league that counted CGs and SHOs before, and Radke got some serious CGs then.

Does your league need a quality, outside review of your league rulebook? Does your league not have a written rulebook? Contact me! I can help.
