Suggestions on improving 4th place team

Postby steelerfan513 » Sun Jul 13, 2008 2:32 am

So my team in an 11-team rotisserie league is having a decent season. After starting in the cellar thanks to horrid pitching, my hitters brought me into contention, and my pitching is finally starting to come around. I had to give up on saves thanks to Eric Gagne and Manny Corpas (traded Trevor Hoffman), but we count holds, so it isn't a disaster. My pitching rotation has drastically improved after I drafted a lot of busts and steadily built from free agency; Kazmir and Lester are the only two starters that have been on my roster for the entire year. My ERA has been dropping steadily for a while now, so I expect to gain a few more points there, and possibly in WHIP as well.

So what should I do to try and give my team a chance at winning the championship? Is there anyone on my team I should look to trade? I can try to trade one of my home runs producers to improve elsewhere because I have a pretty sizable lead in that category. I haven't done a ton of trades this year because usually when trades are done people get ripped off, and I'm pretty clueless when it comes to the value of players in trades.

11-team rotisserie league, counts R (10), HR (11), RBI (9), SB (5.5), AVG (6.5), OPS (10), W (8), SV (3), K (6), HLD (9), ERA (2), WHIP (1)

Current place: 4th of 11 (81 pts)

Your team looks pretty good. You might have some pitching woes, but the only real weak spot is catcher(and that is the least productive spot anyway). Your relievers aren't horrible, you get some holds and I think that Guardado might be the closer very, very soon.

List some of the top FA hitters and pitchers.
