My hitting is KILLING me. Any suggestions?

Postby hotcorner13 » Fri Apr 27, 2007 1:26 pm

I'm struggling big-time in my ESPN prize league and am looking for advice. It's a 10 team 5x5 misxed Rotisserie and I thought I looked good coming out of the draft. But a number of injuries (H Matsui, Kendrick, Ryan, Harden) and underachievers in my lineup are KILLING me right now. My pitching looks pretty solid, but my hitters are atrocious. Here are my current point totals:

R (1), BA (1), HR (2), RBI(2), SB(5)
K (9), W(8), SV(5), ERA(7), WHIP(7)

I look at my lineup and I see players that should be giving me more production HR/RBI (Matsui, Young, Sexson, Kent, Chavez, Berkman, Pujols). Surely this offense isn't as bad as the numbers indicate? How long can I wait for these guys to turn it around? Is it time to start looking at trading a top starter for some power? I looked at the waiver wire and here are the guys that come to the top as far as run producers that could help:
- Lowell - better than Chavez or just a hot stretch?
- Sosa
- O Hudson
- S. Green
- DeRosa
- Renteria
- K. Greene
- granderson

Here's my full roster:
C - Johjima
1B - Pujols
2B - Kent
SS - M Young
3B - Chavez
OF - Berkman, Pierre, H Matsui
UTIL - K Johnson
BN - Sexson, Tavarez

SP - Oswalt
SP - Dice-K
SP - Pettitte
SP - Sabathia
SP - Hughes
SP - Harden
RP - Fuentes
RP - Wickman
RP - Capps

DL - BJ Ryan
