H.O.P. (Help on Pitching)

Postby Guest » Sat Jul 20, 2002 7:00 pm


I'm currently in 2nd place in a 10 team 4x4 league. I'm trying to figure out my pitching for the stretch run.

Here are my statistics and lineup:

6th - BA .273
2nd - HR 184
1st - RBI 623
4th - SB 85

Here is my batting lineup:

Rodriguez, Ivan C TEX
Marrero, Eli C STL
Bagwell, Jeff 1B HOU
Spivey, Junior 2B ARI
Chavez, Eric 3B OAK
Rodriguez, Alex SS TEX
Anderson, Garret OF ANA
Jones, Andruw OF ATL
Sanchez, Alex OF MIL
Guerrero, Vladimir OF MON
Salmon, Tim OF ANA
Hinske, Eric U TOR
Eckstein, David U ANA

3nd - ERA: 3.55
2nd - Wins: 65
2nd - K: 724
6th - Saves 56

Here's my pitching lineup:

Ohka, Tom MON P
Perez, Odalis LA P
Lieber, Jon CHC P
Halladay, Roy TOR P
Julio, Jorge BAL P
Wickman, Bob CLE P
Urbina, Ugeth BOS P
Prior, Mark CHC P
Johnson, Randy ARI P

My saves should go up because I just traded for Urbina.

Do you see anyone on my pitching staff that I should drop and pick up one of the following pitchers on FA:

Byrd, Paul
Fogg, Josh
Padilla, Vicente
Sheets, Ben
Armas Jr, Tony
Dotel, Octavio
Finley, Chuck
Remlinger, Mike
Hawkins, LaTroy
Dessens, Elmer
Lopez, Rodrigo

well, you have some options. as for your question of dropping someone, i would say maybe drop ohka and pick up remlinger. he looks awesome this year and the braves are always involved in these close pitching duels. he will help your era and whip even more and even grab an occassional win. another option would be to sell high on odalis perez. i like him but i think he's pitching as well as he can and it's a good time to trade him while his value is high. also, while looking at your hitting, maybe you could try trading salmon for a good sb/avg guy. in fact, you may be able to do a package deal with perez and salmon for a sb/avg guy and a decent closer (even someone like an acevedo or hernandez could grab you some saves, although they're not considered "premier" closers). good luck!
