Wow, I just noticed this right now. 12-team, NL-only keeper league. 5x5 roto so OPS is not a category, but it still says a lot about my crappy hitters.
Only the magnificent Johnny Estrada has an OPS over .800 for me (.945), yet I'm still in 2nd place in a very competitive money league. I expected an OPS over .900 for Derrek Lee, but he's still chillin at .796 and get this: my #3 OPS guy is Eric Freakin Valent at .772. Reggie Sanders is right behind at .771. None of my other regulars are over .750 and Byrd and Tike are both hovering at .600. Crap, how am I in 2nd place with this group of sorry sluggers?
Oh yeah, I have 57 out of a possible 60 roto points in pitching!
And that's WITH Kip Wells sucking it up. I've been shopping for a hitter but noone is giving fair value. Who do you think I should trade away (remember this is a keeper league): Sheets @ $16, Clement @ $12, or Cole Hamels @ $5? I'd love to trade Hamels so I can keep my current staff in tact and go for it all this season but most ppl don't realize his potential. Any thoughts?
(sorry if this is in the wrong forum. at first I was going to elaborate on OPS but I got sidetracked and turned it into a trade question.)
