I am in a standard 12 team 5x5 head to head matchup league, and My team is beginning to hit the skids. I'm not sure its panic time yet, but might be close. I'm in 5th place (not by much, all teams are seperated by a game or two) and just lost Sizemore for what could be a long amount of time. I'd like to present to you my team, "The Handler" and I was wondering what you think I should do to withstand this current storm. It should be mentioned that I am in the top 3 of every offensive category other than SB, and on most of pitching, besides L's and WHIP. But, alas, it is not a roto league. I'm I just getting unlucky? WTF?
2B- Uggla / Adam Kennedy
3B- Wright / Zimmerman
SS- Tulowitzki / Clint Barnes
OF- Sizemore (DL) / Bay / Reimold / Kennedy / Morales / Elsbury / Ben Francisco
SP- Sabathia / Slowey / Buerhle / Gallardo / Price / Medlen / Hughes / Meche / Kazmir (DL) / Duchscerer (DL)
RP- Soria / Broxton / Wheeler
I've made some trade to get Elsbury and just picked up Francisco, Kennedy, Medlen and Reimold. Oh and Barnes too. One more thing. I Have never won saves, and last week I registered Zero (thats with Cruz in place of Soria, he did not do so well). Should i just sell these guys to get a big bat? I don't like punting a category but I'm getting a little tired of this.
I wouldn't punt saves. Your team should get better, they are a little heavy on power and light on all-around-ness, if that makes sense. Basically, I mean you're going to win some weeks by a lot and lose other weeks by a lot. They're very streaky. Might be better team for roto than H2H, but alas... it is what it is. Your pitching's fine, so that's good. Do you really need Wright and Zimmerman? Maybe trade one of them (Wright) for a big outfield bat (Braun, Berkman, etc.)
