Im in a 10 team yahoo league. I am currnetly in first place due in no thanks to my hitting stats. I am strong in ERA, WHIP and saves and am first in K's and steals. I am near the bottom in every other category. Here is my current roster.
1B Morneau..just dropped Nevin for him
MI Lowell...just dropped Bill Hall for him
OF Garrett Anderson
OF Juan Pierre
OF Brian Giles
UT Nick Johnson
SP Lowry...just dropped Penny when Lowry came off DL
I am currnetly 3rd in saves being that 2 teams for some ungodly reason drafted 5 closers a piece. The guy in 4th is breathing down my neck with 3 closers and a ton of hitting. I feel I need to keep 3 until Patterson gets healthy to stave him off and keep my advantage.
Now for my problems. What the hell do I do with my lineup? I figure I can't drop Ramierez but what about Giles and Pierre? Giles is a shell of his former self and Pierre can't get a hit to save his life. It's tough to keep Pierre with Lopez doing so well and both Brian and Dave Roberts on the waiver wire. As far as replacing Giles, here are my meager choices...Feliz, Lofton, Granderson, Monroe, Wilkerson. I already have a 250 hitter in my lineup with Morneau, I cannot afford another. My question is this...should I drop Pierre for Dave Roberts or maybe even Giles for Dave Roberts...keep Pierre and put the Stolen Base category out of reach...or should I continue to be patient and wait for Giles and Pierre to start hitting?
As far as trades go...NO ONE WANTS TO. I've offerred Meyers and any one of my closers for hitting help and no one bit. Should I offer Webb or Pedro? Then I put myself in a pickle with the pitching. I am perplexed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
