Team full of underperformers - what do I do?

Postby Quaker » Sat May 10, 2008 6:49 pm

I'm in a standard points 10 team league. I loved my draft, but all of my big bats are underperforming. Luckily with some good pitching performances, I'm still hanging in there in 5th place and not too far off 1st place pace. Should I wait it on all of these guys, or do you see anyone I should be trying to get some value from in a trade? I'm generally a pretty patient in fantasy sports, but it's one thing to wait on a couple guys vs. 3/4 of your team.

C - Pierzynski: Pretty much what I expected, I'm fine here
1b - Teixeira: I guess he's always been a slow starter
2b - B Roberts: What I expected from a HR/RBI/SB perspective, but worst than expected avg hurting overall hits
3b - ARod: Injured and slow start before that. I have E Encarnacion in his place
IF - Konerko: decent RBIs and HRs, terrible everything else
LF - Ibanez: What I expected, maybe even a little better
CF - Pence: Slow start with a decent hot streak, still disappointing
RF - Vlad: Extremely disappointing, terrible over the past few weeks
OF - Carlos Lee: Solid
Util - Hermida: solid avg, but disappointing power. Did I get persuaded too much by his second half?
Bnch - Huff and Swisher. Huff picked up after Arod went down, Swisher beyond disappointing.

SP: C Zambrano, MacGowan, Marcum, Javier Vazquez, Kazmir, Oliver Perez (I feel I've got pretty good depth here, been trying to move some to get batting help but not getting any reasonable offers)
RP: Valverde, Rauch, Accosta and Capps, with Cordero on the DL

Sit tight. Arod/Teix/Vlad are too good to not come around sometime soon, so sitting on em is all you can really do. Your other bats are pretty solid. Rotation has great depth, and hopefully Valverde stops killing your pitching numbers soon. I'd possibly look to replace Swish, and maybe add a bat by trading Perez/McGowan, or even Marcum at his highest value right now.
