When does it become time to punt a catergory and try and make up ground elsewhere? I am extremely frustrated with my starting pitchers right now (my first two pitchers drafted were Halladay and Beckett) and am considering punting the category to try and help out everything else. All of the good middle relivers are available on the ww, (Gordon, Mota, Ryan) and I figure I will be able to upgrade my hitting because I do have some good starters to trade away.
Current standings in my 5x5, 12 team league: I am in 4th overall, but im 2nd to last in wins with 37 (the third to last team has 38, then 2nd through tenth place is tightly bunched between 45-51). I am also in the middle ground for Ks, WHIP, and ERA, although two weeks ago I was three spots higher in each of those categories. Am I wrong in thinking that I cannot make up that big of a gap in wins the rest of the season?
Here is my staff:
Pedro (just traded for him)
Freddy Garcia (also just traded for him)
Any insight to this strategy option? Thanks...
