I'm the only female playing in a 9-team roto league (small I know). For the past 2 years I started in 1st place and ended the season in 1st place. But this year...I'm in LAST PLACE and I'm scared!!! My squad includes:
C - McCann & V-Mart (tried to trade 1 of them...no one would bite...R. Martin is outplaying both)
1B - A. Dunn & V-Mart
2B - A. Hill
3B - C. McGehee & Zimmerman (DL)
SS - I. Desmond & A. Escobar
OF - Crawford, Stanton, Bruce and Pagan (dropped Manny of course)
SP - King Felix, Scherzer, Volquez, Chacin, Narveson, Drabek, K. McClellan & Rogers
RP - Marmol, Soria, Burnett & Aardsma (DL)
According to numerous pre-season polls and fantasy experts, my offense should be going off, but the only offensive category that I'm leading in is SB's. I'm last in Runs, AVG and OPS. My pitching is somewhat better, but Volquez and a few others have inflated my ERA and WHIP while obliterating my K/BB. Yet somehow, I don't think I should drop any of them just yet.
Meanwhile, I'm considering dropping Hill for R. Raburn and Bruce for Gomes, Morrison or Beltran...all of which are hitting better than him. UGH!! HELP!!!
I know it's only the 2nd week of the season, but I'm not sure if I should wait until some of my boys start going off or dump them. Please advise.
