Upgrading my team

Postby VanPelt » Fri May 19, 2006 3:33 pm

I'm not sure where to go with this team. I'm in 3rd, 38.5 points out of 1st place, in a different sort of roto league :
18 Teams
Hitting : R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP, GIDP (Ground into Double Play)
Pitching : W, SV, HR (given up), TB (Total Bases allowed), K, ERA, WHIP, SHO (Complete game shutout).
1250 IP Max

Obviously its fairly hard to predict SHOs, although I have two already.

Roster :
C: Brian McCann
1B : David Ortiz
2B : Rickie Weeks
3B : Aramis Ramirez
SS : Derek Jeter
OF : Brad Wilkerson
OF : Raul Ibanez
OF : Magglio Ordonez
Utility : Preston Wilson

SP : Andy Pettite
SP : Jeremy Bonderman
SP : Derek Lowe
RP : Scott Shields
RP : Chad Cordero
P : Tyler Walker
P : Chad Qualls (hoping for a scavenger save)
P : David Bush
BN : Randy Johnson (until he's over his funk)
BN : Brad Lidge
BN : Doug Davis
BN : Scott Baker
DL : Mike McDougal

My problem is that I have so many "buy low" guys (Baker, Davis, Lidge, Cordero, Wilson) that I don't really have much that I can swing a trade with and still see an upgrade. I'm thinking of trying to upgrade Utility/OF, but a lot of my trade ammunition has been used up. I can spare a starter, but none of them are particulalry appealing right now. Davis and Baker both have monstrous ERAs and poor records, and Johnson has the potential to lead me in all pitching categories if he ever returns to his old form, or even 80% of what he used to be.

From the looks of things, I think your best bet would be to stay put. 38.5 points is not much to make up. All you need is just that one good week and there are plenty of those coming up. I hate to saying but sitting on your team and waiting looks like your best option until they heat up, then make a trade.
