Should I be panicking?

Postby Alexcny » Tue May 08, 2007 4:36 pm

After my draft I thought I had one of the best teams in our league. A month into the season I am in 8th place out of 8 teams. Its a standard 5x5 roto and I am 9 points behind the 7th place team and 32 points behind first. I want to know if I should be trying to make some moves
My team
C- Michael Barret
1b- Prince Fielder
2b- Jeff Kent
ss- Mike Young
3b- David Wright
Of- Grady Sizemore
OF- Matt Holliday
OF- Alfonso Soriano
Utl- Jim Thome/Alex Rios
BN- Paul Konerko
BN JJ Hardy
DL Howie Kendrick

SP- Carlos Zambrano
SP- Cole Hamels
RP- Brian Fuentes
RP- Armando Benitez
P- Bret Myers
P- Rich Hill
P- Mark Buerhle
Bn- Eric Bedard
Bn- Brad Penny
DL- BJ Ryan

I feel like all my players are hurt or underproducing just to list a few
Piazza(drafted and droped), Soriano, Wright, Thome(on DL), Kendrick(on DL), Zambrano(just sucking), BJ Ryan(I guess it really stands for Blow Job)

I'm last in ERA, whip and saves and close to it in everything besides Runs and Ks. Should I be looking to ship out some players or still hold tight?

I dont think you should panic yet. Zambrano should drop your era and whip some as the season goes. Maybe try to play the match up more than just starting everyone if that's what you do. that should help. Maybe get a more steady closer also those guys are fairly shaky. as for offense it looks like you should have enough hrs as the season goes on maybe try to upgrade at 2nd to get some steals

You should be ok as the season goes on ... Konerko and Wright have started VERY slowly, as did Zambrano. Sizemore will be better than this... I have the same frustration with Cano ... but I have to think these guys will improve soon enough.

Can you help? ... p?t=283718
