Really appreciate some input (losing)

Postby BMcP » Wed May 09, 2007 2:50 am

I could sure use some help here - I realize there's still almost 5 months of season left, but I've fallen fast from first to the bottom. My three main problems have been key injuries (Mussina, Felix, Wickman), slow starters (Tex, Sheff, Teahen, Hall) and relying on sub-par pitchers resulting in negative points (Greinke, De la Rosa, James, Frasor). My team currently is as follows:

C: R. Martin
1B: Teixeira
2B: Phillips
3B: A. Ramirez
SS: H. Ramirez
OF: Sheffield
OF: Francoeur
OF: Byrnes
DH: Teahen

Bench: B. Hall, Victorino, Tulowitzki

SP: J. Santana
SP: J. Lackey
SP: R. Hill
SP: F. Hernandez
SP: M. Mussina
RP: B. Wickman
RP: J. Soria


SP: R. Clemens
SP: T. Lincecum
SP: M. Owings
SP: C. James
SP: C. Vargas
SP: A. Lerew

This is a 13-team CBS points-based weekly league with the following scoring system:

Scoring for Batting Categories

1B - Singles 1.5 points
2B - Doubles 3 points
3B - Triples 4 points
AST - Assists 0.2 points
BB - Walks (Batters) 1 point
CS - Caught Stealing -1.5 points
E - Errors -3 points
GDP - Ground Into Double Plays -2 points
HP - Hit by Pitch 1 point
HR - Home Runs 5 points
KO - Strikeouts (Batter) -1 point
OFAST - OF Assists 4 points
PBC - Passed Balls by Catcher -2 points
R - Runs 3 points
RBI - Runs Batted In 3 points
SB - Stolen Bases 3 points
SF - Sacrifice Flies 0.5 points
SH - Sacrifice Hits 0.5 points

Scoring for Pitching Categories

1BA - Singles Allowed -0.5 points
2BA - Doubles Allowed -1 point
3BA - Triples Allowed -1.5 points
APP - Appearances 3 points
B - Balks -1 point
BBI - Walks Issued (Pitchers) -0.5 points
BS - Blown Saves -20 points
ER - Earned Runs -4 points
HB - Hit Batsmen -0.5 points
HD - Holds 5 points
HRA - Home Runs Allowed -2 points
INN - Innings 3 points
K - Strikeouts (Pitcher) 2 points
L - Losses -10 points
QS - Quality Starts 20 points
RL - Relief Losses -10 points
RW - Relief Wins 15 points
S - Saves 15 points
W - Wins 15 points
WP - Wild Pitches -2 points

I'm currently a little over 700 points behind the leader. I have two questions:

1) Do I have a chance of getting back into the lead?

2) Are there any changes I should make?

I know my RPs need help - if Wickman can't make it back, both Soriano and Accardo are currently available. But I wanted to load up on SPs to maximize two-start weeks for the weekly system, particularly since QS + W + APP = 38 points.

Please, I'd welcome any advice or input and I'm happy to help in return. Thank you-

my first suggestion would be to try to get rid of one of your ss. Look for the team with the biggest hole at ss and take it from there. You'll gain some ground on your sp once clemens and mussina come back, if you can gain another solid pitcher with getting rid of one of your ss's you'd be looking good. Maybe wait til Tulowitzki gets a little hot then try to deal him away.
Let's go Mets.
