Stagnant tentative first place blues, WHIR if i can

Postby lupus yonderboy » Sat Jun 04, 2011 1:41 pm

6x6 12 team keeper* 90 max moves per season (current moves, like 36) loaded for bear on middle infielders...obvious pitching drop is porcello and a team in my league wants a third baseman and is willing to give up matt capps. i use bautista at of rather than third cause comparing him his stats are like that.

the team just seems blahzé to me; i'm ahead by 3ish? games and would ideally find myself being in third or fourth (or even fifth) going into week 23 (i don't want to be a target at first, would rather "sneak" into the playoffs, but don't want to be living in my dads cellar either). no doubt i'm keeping (for the remainder of the season...not sure about next year) joyce, morse, kubel, peralta, bautista, aybar, yo-yo gallardo, and madson. everyone else is movable.

any and all thoughts are welcome, and as always, leave a link; if i have a take on your woes, i'll bring it and if i don't have useful experience, i'll hold my tounge,

C Miguel Olivo 1B Carlos Peña 2B Brandon Phillips*
3B José Bautista* SS Jhonny Peralta
OF Michael Morse Matt Joyce Laynce Nix
Util Darwin Barney Erick Aybar
BN Plácido Polanco Danny Espinosa Jason Kubel (dl)
DL Jason Heyward*
SP Yovani Gallardo* Clay Buchholz Josh Tomlin
RP Ryan Madson Frank Francisco Aaron Crow
BN Kyle Lohse Ricky Romero Rick Porcello

Some SP on the waivers? Carlos Villanueva, Humber, Fister, Homer Bailey.
Some batsmen on the WW? Corey Patterson, Jon Jay, Cody Ross, Josh Willingham...

sometimes it's best to just sit tight, especially since you're in first place.
maybe update your trade block and let the other teams know some players are available and see if any offers come in.

if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

thanks for helping with mine.

I can only suggest trying to work over your 1B/C positions. Ideally you could replace Pena on the WW, but in a keeper league, I doubt the options I would suggest are available. (Morse/Hosmer have been lighting it up. Trumbo isn't doing too bad. Casey Kotchman for the Rays has been having a fairly good year as well, and he's their everyday 1B now once he's back.)

As far as catcher goes, you seem like a smart guy, so I doubt a better option is available on the wire. You would have been all over that. But keep an eye there.

Beyond that, I don't see a reason to make a move just for the sake of making a move. Enjoy your position and chill a bit.

I have a thread in the rate my team forum if you'd like to take a look.

Best of luck! B-)

Being that your only OF bench player is on the DL and both of your util players are infielders, I'd consider picking up Patterson. He's batting in front of Bautista, and seeing a lot of favorable pitches.

Team looks good though!
