I'm in a 12 team 5x5 league with a twist. We added Slugging% and Losses to the categories.
My hitting is tops in the league, ranking 1st in all categories except runs and SB, both of which I rank 2nd.
My pitching is another story. currently tied for 11th in wins, 11th in Losses, 10th in both WHIP and ERA. 6th in K's. But I'm 1st in saves.
Currently sitting in 2nd overall 13.5 pts behind the leader.
my pitching staff consists of Unit (just acquired via trade), Wood, Wells, Sabbathia, Beckett, Peavy, Urbina, Wickman, Escobar, Izzy, Dotel.
I'm thinking of going after a starter. there's a team with lots of starters and is in need of some hittinghelp in hr, rbi, slug%, avg.
He's got Lowe, Mulder, Morris, Oswalt, Glavine, Padilla, Tomko.
how would you rank these starters. I'm a little leary of the talk of Morris' workload ... and Glavine Lowe not being able to continue
their out of this world pitching in the 2nd half.
He's got Ramon Santiago as starting SS. I have both AROD and Tejada. What do think Tejada can swing me in a deal?
My other option is to give up Manny who is still on my bench after coming off DL, but that would leave me depending on ALOU in the OF.
The other option is to stay put and maybe go with waiver wire for now, which have, Wolf, Person, Appier, Marquis, Duckworth, Benson
Thanks for your advice.
