Slipping away...

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Slipping away...

Postby Prince » Thu Jun 04, 2009 10:07 pm

I'm in a 10-team mixed league, very little trading. The top 2 teams are "run" by owners who never log in. Yet somehow I've fallen from 2nd to 9th place now.

My stats (higher is better)

R: 2
HR: 7
RBI: 4
SB: 10
AVG: 2

K: 8
W: 1
SV: 6
ERA: 6
WHIP: 6

My team is as listed in the signature. Available players include those below. Any obvious changes to shake things up given my needs? Nothing jumps out at me. I do plan on dropping Napoli when or before Iannetta is ready, which will open up another spot once Hamilton takes the DL position.
Thanks!

Konerko, Reimold, Beltre, Drew, J-Lopez, Beckham, Nick Johnson, Cody Ross, Byrd, Juan Rivera, Sheff, Dukes, Andruw, Aybar, Sandoval, Guzman
Blackburn, Pavano, various MRs
10/mixed:

C: Iannetta
1: Berkman
2: J. Lopez
3: Huff
SS: Hanley
2/SS: Alexei
1/3: Reynolds
OF: Crawford, Hart, Pence, Bruce, Rivera
UT: Stewart
Bench: Manny
DL: Hamilton

SP: Haren, Lester, Lackey, Bedard, Kershaw, Jurrjens, Wandy
RP: Rivera, Street, Nunez, Frasor

J-Lopez is hot. Lose Kendrick. Bruce at UTIL, Reimold in the OF. Lose Rowand. What's flop? Trade Bedard and Manny for a top outfielder. Think Markakis. When Hamilton goes to the DL, pickup Beltre and play him over Huff and trade Huff and Napoli for a junky closer. Think Bailey. Then trade Rivera and a small piece for a better 2nd base or MI. Think Brandon Phillips.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Great, thanks for the details, Grey, it's much appreciated.

I hadn't updated my sig properly, sorry. I have F-lopez (Flop) at 2nd, Alexi at MI. I imagine you'd recommend keeping F over J Lopez... Btw, I'd just been streaming through the UTIL spot over the last week, looking for matchups, but it hasn't worked. Beckham is also available; any benefit over Reimold given that I'm doing OK with HR? Guess I don't need SB, though..

I'm not used to thinking about trades or how to value players in that way, since no one trades, but I'll do my best to push some trades through.
