I like my draft, but want some help WHIR

Postby bobsnits » Sun Apr 08, 2012 11:59 pm

I am in a 10 team head to head league. R HR RBI SB AVG OBP SLG / K QS CG W L SV ERA WHIP

I like my hitting a lot. I am a little weak in steals, which I don't like. I think I have a lot of gambles in my pitching, though. Tell me what you think.

I think you might want to trade a bit of your hitting for pitching; or look for some pitching off the wire. I think that would give you the best shot at winning one more then then half your categories weekly.

Thanks for the help. I like how you suggested Bedard and Niese and you have them on your staff, haha. At least you practice what you preach. I agree with Halo Girl - you need to build up your pitching. In a 10-team league, I just don't see a clear ace. Your hitting looks very solid. I don't particularly like Lee or Francouer and I think they're very expendable in a shallow league. I tend to keep one reserve hitter, two max, in shallow leagues because the FA pool generally has enough talent to find viable injury replacements on the fly. I also like to carry as many pitchers as possible. Also, keep an eye on Duda. I have a feeling he'll be pretty streaky this year, so you may need to jump ship at some point. Great all around team, though.
