Slipping fast... time to make moves? WHIR

Postby alex42083 » Wed May 14, 2008 1:22 pm

I was in first the first few weeks, then have just slipped to the middle of the pack. Will this team be able to bounce back? OR should I just give this team some time to get in the groove?

I think your team has the makings of a champion. You have suffered from some of your players struggling early on and Posada being on the DL doen't help either.Verlander will find his stuff and I think Cano is starting to heat up so you may want think about starting him and sitting Roberts.You have a solid team you will be fine once these players reach their norm. Thanks for helping me.

I also have Atkins and Holliday and liking what they have done so far, but still expect Holliday to make top 6 players. Atkins should stay like this all year, and that is great. I think with time you will climb up the standings.

I would try and trade Cano. You have two 2B, and Roberts is the better of the two IMO. I would have suggested trading Pena, however, I think by keeping Roberts and Pena, you cover the power and speed categories quite well, whereas Cano and Roberts does not. Maybe hold onto Cano until he has a little better line and attempt to move him and Jurjjens/Santana for a SP. Maybe someone like Scott Kazmir or Roy Oswalt, who are top 15-20 pitchers that can be had pretty cheap right now.
