Need a ton of help [WHIR]

Postby headrulz101 » Wed Apr 28, 2010 8:55 pm

Alright guys, offensively, my team is pretty solid. My problem is with pitching. I'm in a 10 man Yahoo H2H league with all the basic states counted (HLDs incl), and I'm one spot out of the playoffs. I've had three losing weeks in a row.

My team:

C: Miguel Olivo
1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Dan Uggla
3B: Mark Reynolds
SS: Stephen Drew
OF: Matt Holliday
OF: Michael Bourn
OF: Andre Ethier
Util: Billy Butler
BN: Gordon Beckham (2B, 3B)
BN: Hunter Pence (OF)
DL: Jimmy Rollings (SS)
DL: Miguel Montero (C)

SP: Felix Hernandez
SP: Justin Verlander
RP: Johnathan Papelbon
RP: Leo Nunez
P: Joakim Soria
P: Carlos Zambrano
P: Jake Peavy
BN: Rick Porcello
BN: Mike Pelfrey
BN: Edwin Jackson

So as you could see. I'm having a good offensive year. Leading the league in HRs, RBIs and I just added Bourn off waivers to help my SBs. My offense will get even better with Rollins returning.

Now for pitching, first off, I'll say that my Saves and Holds are going well. Zambrano is my holds guy and my three closers are solid. Now what should I do with my starting pitchers? I've been watching Pettite who's a FA, though I don't know who I would drop for him. What do you guys think I should do with Pence, Beckham, Porcello, and Peavy? I think Verlander and Jackson could turn it around, hopefully.

Verlander's a slow starter. He'll be fine. I wouldn't worry too much about Pence either. I'm guessing he'll be back to where he was by the end of the season.

I don't think you can do much with Peavy as of right now. I doubt he has trade value, and you certainly don't want to drop him because of his upside. I'd try to ride this out for awhile.

I might consider dumping Porcello for Pettitte at this point.
