Postby singhster17 » Fri Apr 18, 2008 4:03 pm

I need help

I always finish fantasy baseball in 1st-3rd place, but this season has been different.
I keep talking how ill come back because my reputation is bigger than my team's stats.
Please help me....Im in 10th place...101 points behind the leader.

This is a rotisserie yahoo league
10 teams
the stat categories are : R, H, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, TB, E, FPCT, AVG, OPS, IP, W, L, CG, SHO, SV, H, ER, HR, BB, K, ERA, WHIP

Here is my roster
C Ivan Rodriguez
1b Ryan Howard
2b Placido Polanco
3b Ryan Braun
SS Rafael Furcal
LF Adam Dunn
CF Andruw Jones
RF Corey Hart
UTL Carlos Pena
BN Evan Longoria
DL Curtis Granderson

SP Tim Hudson
SP CC Sabathia
SP John Maine
SP Dan Haren
RP Jonathon Papelbon
RP Manny Corpas
P TOdd Jones

Last week i rejected a trade that would have gotten me Miguel Cabrera, Joe Borowski, and JOhan Santana for Ryan Braun, Jonaton Papelbon, and Danny Haren
And today a team is offering me Lastings Milledge for Evan Longoria...should i reject?
PLEASE HELP ME....i have 99.5 points and the league leader has 199 points

1.) I would keep Longoria.
2.) You need to find someone else better than Jones to tide you over in CF until Granderson gets back. He's got to be killing you in every category.

I would keep Longoria as well.

As for your struggles, there's not much you can do besides replacing Andruw. Pudge, Howard, Polanco, and Sabathia are just off to slow starts. Just wait and hope they all bounce back.

3 weeks into the season is not a time for desperation. No way you could be that far behind statistically in most of those categories.

This is a time for patience more than anything else - and I feel you pain because I've got Russell Martin, Prince Fielder and Dan Uggla in the C - 2B spots - which feels like I've got an anchor tied to me while I try to tread water.

Personally speaking - there is no way on the planet I'm plunking money down in any league with that scoring format. There are more double counted stats (and triple counted ones too) than a government ledger. That alone makes it impossible for me to give any advice even if it wasn't this early.

Join the club man, I am in a similar situation.

First, I would not take Milledge for Longoria but I would try to move him if you can get a $15 player in return. Everyting else looks fine, it will just take time to get things going.

If you get time, I need serious advice on my team.

Your team is fine if your players figure it out, and being this is the only the third week, I assume they will with a 150 games left or so.
Although I would've taken that trade for MCab and Johan, but I'd stick with what you've got. There's no need to get desperate now.
