What can I do with this team?

Postby Singles » Wed Jul 06, 2005 8:18 pm

I feel my team is quite chaotic. Who can I drop and what should I try to add?

I have propsed two trades so far and still haven't heard any repsonse.

I get

I give
K Wells
I origianally offered Overbay for Burkett and he responded by asking me to throw another pithcher in and he'll throw in Percival. I could use some pitching depth and could part with Overbay

I get
I give
J Wilson
Probably won't happen. He does have extra pitching ands needs SS help.

Just a general strategy of mine. H2H teams should have most of their bench slots taken by pitchers, not hitters. The extra game you get from a hitter on a seven-game week won't help nearly as much as having more starts than your opponent.
That having been said, combined with your point configuration and the fact that you, gasp, have an EMPTY RP slot, I say scoop up:
Fuentes (don't be scared, he's good, he just doesn't get the opps)
Duchscherer (great middle reliever, and you count holds)
Crain (ditto above)
I frankly don't understand why any of those three would be available in such a league.

What you need is a couple of more outfielders, a better 1 baseman, and some more SP, and RP, I would suggest picking up Everett since he can swing the bat and he plays for the BEST team in the league RIGHT NOW. He will give you RBI's and Home Runs too. I would also try picking up BECKETT not Burkett because once he gets healthy again he is a great young pitcher. Also try picking up A. Rhodes or Chris Hammond and then trying to make a trade using Jay Gibbons, one of those 2 RP, and Jack Wilson for another good pitcher try Garland, Rogers, Morris, or even Paul Byrd, Bartolo Colon, or Bronson Arroyo/ Matt Clement. ;-D

if you can get that trade of Sabathia for Jack Wilson, that would be great for you, and I would pick up Shelton and play him in your IF spot, even if you have to drop Wilson
