Team is Dying...HELP!

Postby poster_nutbag » Sun Jun 08, 2008 8:32 pm

So I led my 10-team keeper league (6x6; standard 5x5 plus OBP and IP) for the first month and a half, but we've slipped big time over the last few months. Because IP is a category (SP can only be added on Sundays), I've been flipping over my starers a lot because, as you'll see, my pitching is poor. My hitting, however, is pretty fantastic.

C: Jesus Florez
1B: Ryan Howard
2B: Howie Kendrick
3B: Chipper Jones
SS: Hanley Ramirez
IF: Justin Morneau
OF: Magglio Ordonez
OF: Vernon Wells
OF: David Murphy
OF: Carl Crawford
UTIL: Casey Kotchman
Bench: Jorge Cantu (subbing for Chipper)
Bench: Jacoby Ellsbury (hurt til Tues at least)

SP: Dan Haren
SP: Homer Bailey
RP: Joe Nathan
RP: George Sherrill
P: Keving Gregg
P: Rich Harden
Bench: Cliff Lee
Bench: Brett Myers
Bench: Todd Wellemeyer
DL: Kelvim Escobar

We've fallen a ton of points in the last weeks, particularly in the HR and RBI categories. Flipping pitchers paid off often, but my ERA and WHIP are near the bottom of my league, obviously. Thoughts?

You might be able to grab Heath Bell or Justin Morrow off FA and throw them into the RP spot. They won't get you saves, but they really helped lower my ERA and WHIP.
