Who Must Stay & Who Must Go????

Postby softballjenny » Tue Jul 22, 2003 5:00 pm

I"m in a Yahoo - Rotisserie League - I'm currently ranked 5th out of 12 teams in my league. This is my first time doing this so I need a little help.
Here's my current Line Up

SP-Greg Maddux
SP-Jerome Williams
SP-Woody Williams
SP-Pedro Martinez
SP-Jason Jennings
SP-Brian Lawrence
RP-Eric Gagne
RP-Danny Baez
RP-Brenden Donnelly
C-Bengie Molina
1B-Jeff Conine
2B-Ray Durham
3B-Scott Rolen
SS-Rick Aurilia
OF-Larry Walker
OF-Jim Edmonds
OF-Marquis Grissom
UTL-Mike Cameron
BENCH-OF-Bernie Williams
BENCH-1B-John Olerud

As far as my pitching is concerned, this is where I am getting most of my points. I could use a bit of a boost in the Saves & ERA area, otherwise my K's, Win's, & WHIP is great.

My batting is where the trouble lies. I'm doing mediocore in my runs and stolen bases (6 of 12 possible points). I really need help with my HR, RBI, Batting Avg. I may run into some trouble soon with Stolen Bases, because I had Corey Patterson & just lost him.

Here are some of the guys still available in our league, that I could add and drop one of my current players.

Available Pitchers:
Urbina, Ugueth
Escobar, Kelvim
Shields, Scott
Franklin, Ryan
Garland, Jon
Robertson, Jeriome
Beckett, Josh
Valverde, José
Lyon, Brandon
Eaton, Adam
Pavano, Carl
Radke, Brad

Available Batters:
Tucker, Michael
Sanders, Reggie
Polanco, Plácido
Casey, Sean
White, Rondell
Catalanotto, Frank
Sánchez, Álex
Kielty, Bobby
Spivey, Junior
Goodwin, Tom
Stairs, Matt
Blake, Casey
Ortiz, David

pick up Beckett, and did u try for Harden yet?

trade Woody Williams and someone for a stud hitter at 1B or OF. Woody is old and I dont think he'll last the season doing well.

I agree. You could use a bigger stick at 1st, and Woody is a good sell high candidate. So is Edmonds. And I'd get Bernie back in your lineup.

Good luck. :-)

Personally, I don't like carrying extra hitters on my bench, especially dead weight like Olerud. He would be the first to go and I would pick up Beckett in his place. That would allow you to package Woody for a 1B. Your 2B and SS could use work but you might want to just wait for that lineup to get rolling again. Whatever you do, don't panic. People are quick to drop Conine but he is having a solid year, except for the HR's. Also, find a way to get Bernie in your lineup.
