Is it too soon to worry?!!

Postby Taters » Mon Apr 14, 2008 1:13 pm

My fanasty team has not started like I would of liked. After two weeks, my H2H record stands at 3-23-2 :-o 18.5 games back. This is a 16 team league with skim pickins on the FA list. To me my team dosn't look that bad, but how deep of hole do I dig before I do something? Here is my team as it stands now.

C Carlos Ruiz Phi
1B Chris Duncan StL
2B Brendan Harris Min
3B Miguel Cabrera Det
SS Troy Tulowitzki Col
LF Carlos Gomez Min
CF Adruw Jones LAD
RF Brad Hawpe
OF Rick Ankiel StL
UTL Adrian Beltre Sea
UTL Adam LaRoche Pit
UTL Joey Gathright KC
SP Ian Kennedy NYY
SP Hiroki Kuroda LAD
SP Erik Bedard Sea
SP Ian Snell Pit
SP Aaron Harang Cin
SP John Maine NYM
SP Scott Baker Min
SP Brett Myers Phi
SP Nick Blackburn Min
RP Heath Bell SD
RP Merkin Valdez SF
RP Dan Wheeler TB
DL Chris Carpenter StL
DL Scott Kazmir TB

I hate to cut bait on slow starting stars, but whats a guy to do. Any advice would be great. I hope this is the right forum for this question.

Just stop it, seriously!

But no, seriously, its wayyyyyy too early to get too worked up. Wait until mid May at least, unless of course there are some obvious red flags you need to take care of.

Your stars are off to the slowest starts possible - Tulow, Cabrera, Kazmir, and Jones. Doesn't help you've got a few other guys playing dead either. I agree with staying put for right now. 1 thing is you've got a ton of starters and not 1 closer. Got some interesting league setup?

I agree with the other guys. It is definitely too early to worry, especially in a head to head league. 1 hot week by your hitters and you'll be in playoff position, 2 hot weeks and you're near first.

Yes its early, but that team isnt that good anyway. Look to make some 2 for 1 moves in an effort to get deeper and more quality players.
