I finally crawled into first place, but I now have a grand total of 3.1 innings left. I didn't realize there was an inning limit until about a month or so ago. I tried to conserve innings, but when I have an ace going against Detroit, it's hard NOT to start him. I guess my only hope is to sell off all my pitchers for hitters and try and scrape every point I can in the offensive categories. Problem is when you have an outfield like mine, it's hard to improve on it.
Here's my offense:
C Piazza, Mike (C-NYM)
1B Thome, Jim (1B, DH-Phi)
2B Soriano, Alfonso (2B-NYY)
3B Blalock, Hank (3B-Tex)
SS Cabrera, Orlando
OF Edmonds, Jim (CF-StL)
OF Huff, Aubrey (DH, 1B, RF-TB)
OF Wells, Vernon (CF-Tor)
Util Bonds, Barry (LF-SF)
Bench Crawford, Carl (LF-TB)
Bench Williams, Bernie (CF-NYY)
Bench Conine, Jeff (1B-Fla
Bench Jones, Andruw (CF-Atl)
I'm thinking maybe of trying to package Cabrera and a pitcher for A-rod, but I doubt he'll go for it. He hasn't made a trade yet.
Any other upgrades I could make?
Also: Who should be my starting 4 in the outfield/util spots? I just made a trade for Jones, he won't actually be in my lineup till maybe Saturday.
