Struggling in the RBI category. Any moves needed?

Postby Cali Redneck » Fri Apr 28, 2017 5:25 am

I play in a 10 team points league with three keepers.

I have what i think is a really solid lineup that's ranked at or near the top of my league in almost every category, except for some reason I'm close to the bottom of the standings in RBI's. Should i write it off as bad luck or randomness that will eventually even out as the season goes on, or are there any spots where i could potentially make a move to improve there?

C: Buster Posey (C,1B)
1B: Ryan Zimmerman
2B: Jose Altuve
3B: Jake Lamb
SS: Francisco Lindor
CI: Travis Shaw (1B,3B)
MI: Jose Ramirez (2B,3B,OF)
OF: Billy Hamilton
OF: Jacoby Ellsbury
OF: Jay Bruce
OF: Avisail Garcia
OF: Chris Owings (SS,OF)
UT: Kyle Schwarber (C,OF)
BENCH: Lorenzo Cain, Cody Bellinger, Jedd Gyorko (1B,2B,3B,SS)
DL: Josh Donaldson
NA: Lewis Brinson

Anytime you start Ells & Hamilton together you are setting your team up for a power shortage. Altuve will have trouble matching his RBI production from last year; Donaldson was supposed to lead your team in that cat so he will help. Consider benching Ells vs LHP whenever you can, sit Hamilton vs tough starters & keep looking for help in the outfield

You don't have a lot of guys in a lineup spot which produces high RBI totals. Donaldson will be back soon to help that out so being that you're at the top in everything else I wouldn't worry too much.

I agree with what is said here. You have speedsters so you should dominate runs and SB. I imagine HRs and RIB will be low. If you have a problem with that shop someone like Hamilton or Ella for another team's power guy.
