I'm at a loss for what to do with my team. On paper I think I should have as solid a team as you can find, especially given the league format (H2H), but nothing has been clicking, at least not at the same time. My hitters started out like gangbusters while my pitching was mediocre at best. My pitching has started to turn it around recently, but my hitters have gone into a major slump. What it all means is that I'm treading water at just above .500 for the season because I can't get both sides to perform at the same time. Who should I try to cut bait with? Who's going to rebound, and who's weigh me down? WHIR
10 team keeper league, H2H.
Offense cats: H, R, HR, RBI, SB, TB, AVG, OBP, SLG
Pitching cats: H allowed, ER allowed, W, SV, TB allowed, K, ERA, WHIP, QS
OF: Harper, J. Upton, A. Gonzalez
UT: Longoria, Crisp
Bench: Profar, R. Davis, J. Rutledge, T. d'Arnaud
DL: Tulowitzki, Gyorko,
SP: Scherzer, Samardzija, J. Johnson, E. Santana, Ryu, Gallardo
RP: Rodney, F. Rodriguez, C. Perez, T. Wilhelmsen
DL: B. Beachy
Obviously, I have a few guys on the DL, and when they get back, I'll be dropping some combination of Davis, Rutledge, d'Arnaud, Gallardo, or one of the RP's (I only have 3 RP slots and no P slots - I have four because I don't trust any of them). SB and SV are probably my most obvious weaknesses, but in the H2H format I can live with punting those two categories and (hopefully) winning most of the rest. Sadly, it doesn't seem to be working. I feel like the 2013 LA Lakers - big names all over the place, but it's just not coming together the way it should. Any thoughts? Please?
