This being my first time, I have a lot of questions. I know a lot about baseball and matchups, so what I have been doing (since my league has no restrictions on moves or games played at position) is seeing what i need/lack in the upcoming days, and picking people off the waiver wire who I think can help me in that. Is that smart?
For instance, my league is Head to Head and I am winning in all offensive categories, but only tied in 1 pitching category, hence Chuck James and Jeremy Sowers. When my whip/era was high, I picked up Pat Neshek and Scot Shields so they could help that. I look for people with favorable matchups, and plug them in what i feel will be a hole on that day. I just dont know if I will constantly be chasing stats all year long by doing this and if I should have more pitchers than position players on my bench or vice versa. Please help as I am spending 3-4 hours a day online looking for the best case scenario for each day.
P.S. I am in a 10 category league. Ba Hr Rbi R Sb W K Sv Era Whip

one thing i would try and too is either trade tex, gonzalez, or thome for pitching because you can spare them on offense and with our current roster situation they all wont be able to start regularly. thome and tex have name power so you can probably get more for them. i would try and trade gonzalez tho ... 30#2165630

I have to agree that you need to move one of your 1B. There is never any need for three, and you can get good value for any of those guys. I'd look for a good to very good SP that you know will give you solid starts every week. Also, once Teahen gains OF eligibility, plug him in C. Pat or Hawpe's spot. I bet you money he out-produces either one of those guys.

Help me out if you please: ... 26#2165826
