I think I'm going to ask my team to switch to a different sport, because none of them really want to play baseball right now.
Is my team actually not good, or am I super unlucky? I'm 2nd to last in an 11 team roto (rbi/r/sb/av/hr/obp/w/l/holds/k/era/sv), with something like 55 points. I'm hoping the answer is just stick with it and it will come around, and not something else...
I needed to vent.

C - Napoli
1b - Pena
2b - Phillips
3b - Beckham
SS - Hanley
LF - Holliday
CF - Sizemore
RF - Werth
Util - Quentin
Bn - Adam Jones

SP - Haren, Billingsley, Slowey, Hamels, Bucholz,
Cl - Marmol, Dotel, Valverde, Feliz
hlds - Moylan

Your team doesn't look too bad. Your arms could maybe stand to be a little better and you're carrying a lot of relievers when relievers really only stand to help you on H and SV (they add a little bit to the other 4 categories but not as much as a starter). Is there really nobody better than Beckham @ 3B in free agency? I understand the upside but right now his bat is dead. I also probably would've passed on Sizemore assuming you took him in the 3rd round of your draft... he was a big red flag in my book this year.

Let's see... Becks, Sizemore, Quentin, HRam (for his standards), Jones all off to slow starts. The hitting will come around. Haren/Hamels are off to an unlucky start, Slowey will always be a better real life pitcher than a fantasy pitcher, and Billz just isn't right out there.

Patience with this squad is key right now. Can't sell low on the entire damn farm.
