Revamped Lineup - Thoughts?

Postby CraigZem » Tue May 04, 2010 1:22 pm

Well, I just made a bunch of trades and basically revamped my lineup. I had a theory, and it didn't work out. My lineup doesn't steal as many bases as I thought they were, and slumps/hot streaks can kill and average. Also, I found out that my league is very forgiving with streamers and basically encourages it since it will typically get you 3 of 6 categories without even trying that hard.

So I went for more offense, and am going to start "mini-streaming" if needed.

That lineup is dirty, how did your league allow that. I like Andruw Jones a lot, hes looking like his old self. His average probably won't rise too much, but I see the Sox starting to turn up the bats too so he will be good for some rbis. You are heavy on Minnesota but shit they are ripping it up and I don't see it stopping. Kinsler is okay, he is a good reliable player but doesn't provide anything that special to a team. Overall, bomb IF and a pretty solid OF. You got it all except for the stolen bases guy, Morgan has been caught like 5 times this year and his hitting isn't anything to write home about.

You have a few gems at SP. Danks is great but needs run support and Penny has been great. I also have Penny on my team and am skeptical he will keep it going, but cant argue now. Contreras is garbage but closers are at a premium right now so do what you gotta do, at least he will have a good amount of save opportunities until Lidge.
