Need offensive help

Postby bigbeatfbs2 » Thu Jun 03, 2004 6:23 pm

5x5 with doubles, total bases added for batters and holds added for pitchers (stat for mid-relief)

It's only an 8 team league so my roster looks pretty powerful, however I'm in 5th place right now. I started the season with a crappy roster (I missed the two rounds of my draft and ended up with Carlos Delgado and Gary Sheffield - both overrated garbage in my opinion), but with tons of trading and waiver work, this is the team I have right now:

C J. Posada
1b A. Huff
2b M. Young
3b H. Blalock
SS D. Jeter
OF B. Bonds
OF C. Beltran
OF S. Finley
Util J. Drew

Bench - D. Ward
Bench - F. Thomas
Bench - J. Burnitz
Bench - R. Ibanez

SP M Prior
SP R Clemens
RP K Foulke
RP J. Nathan
P J. Schmidt
P F. Rodriguez
P B. Lidge

Bench (DL) - B. Wagner
DL - J. Peavy
DL - A. Pettite

My pitching staff has me drooling, but my offense seems lacking for power and stolen bases. I've been offering like crazy to trade away my bench offense players and Steve Finley, but no one is biting. Should I deal away a pitcher to improve my offense? And if so, where should I put him?

Thanks to any responses.

Honestly, I wouldn't touch a thing. It's frustrating being in 5th place, but this is a good team. Huff, Jeter and Drew are starting to heat up... Blalock, Beltran, Burnitz and Bonds are all power guys. Beltran will also steal you some bases, but if you want a SB guy, I'd find someone that is pitching thin and see if they bite on a Peavy or Nathan for a middle-of-the pack guy like Sanchez or J. Jones.
