Strong Pitching, Weak Hitting

Postby minerman » Tue Apr 22, 2008 8:49 pm

My first post:

Hi, I'm in a 12 team league. I'm stacked on pitching, but weak on hitting. Any advice on increasing my hitting without weakening my dominant pitching? Also, I'm benching but refusing to cut Sabathia at this point. Also, does anybody know what the best ratio of SP to RP is? What about hitters to pitchers?

Theres no way your gonna be able to effectively strengthen your hitting without moving some pitching. Like you I drafted Konerko, Peralta, and Utley and have already dropped Konerko and Peralta for Connor Jackson and Bobby Crosby. Your hitting is not terrible especially with Utley tearing the cover off the ball. I think you should go after a power hitting outfielder and in the trade maybe move a guy like Beckett. Beckett does have a nagging injury but still has a lot of trade value. Maybe do a 2 for 2 and move like Beckett and one of your benched outfielders for a stud outfielder and one of the guys lower tier pitchers. There is no good ratio for SPs to RPs, if you have solid RPs then you don't need a lot of them. Personally I like to keep more pitchers then hitters, I only have 2 benched position players on my team, but I have 4 closers.

Let me know what you think about my team.

if you have a surplus of good pitching use them as trade bait

I like your lineup. Your not far from being well rounded, as I would trade with you today if your were in my league (see Too Much Batting, not enough pitching)

I would deal THoff now as he is no longer at his prime but Saves are sparse this year. You may be able to pick up a Matthews or better,(check the waiver wires for decent OF)
