Hi Grey, Hi everyone.
I have a week and a half until my trading deadline (weird league), and wanted to know what you guys thought of my roster. I'm currently in first place, by ten points.
I'm in 1st-3rd place for all pitching stats except for Holds (dead last, I have 12 holds, next up has 30).
I'm in 3rd-6th in most hitting stats, but I do lead in RBI and HR. The stats I can make up the most ground in are Rs, 1Bs, 2Bs, 3Bs.
Do you think my offense can hold up the rest of the season? Big finishes by Lawrie, Castro, Upton, Bruce would help, even if just two or those. But is there a weakness I can upgrade? Trading is rampant in this league, so I can target any position and negotiate into comfortable deal.
I'm confident I can stream my way into keeping my pitching lead, Razzball has taught me well.
That said, is it ever worth chasing holds? I can dump a couple of bench bats and use my streamer spots to load up on 4-5 middle relievers. Good idea?
Thank in advance, I welcome all comments and suggestions. =)
