New to Fantasy BB, 2 weeks in, Need Help!

Postby Eliot227 » Fri Apr 16, 2010 6:47 am

So here's my team:

C Matt Wieters
1B Mark Teixeira
2B Rickie Weeks
3B Pablo Sandoval
SS Alexei Ramirez
2B/SS Jhonny Peralta
1B/3B Carlos Pena
OF Matt Holliday
OF Adam Lind
OF Raul Ibanez
OF Jason Heyward
OF Kyle Blanks
BE Jay Bruce

P Chris Carpenter
P Yovani Gallardo
P Ubaldo Jimenez
P Jair Jurrjens
P David Price
P Kevin Slowey
P John Danks
P Brian Wilson
P Ryan Franklin
BE Jason Frasor
BE Aroldis Chapman
DL Brad Lidge


I tried to stack a couple stats, HRs, RBIs, and Ks (tougher than the other two) so that when my guys had a bad week, I could still come away with a few wins (H2H each category). The only problem is this week, my guys are having a bad week... lol... and I'm having a tough time deciding if I need to trade for some guys or if it's just bad luck.

My team is batting a combined .219 this week, with a .314 OBP. Totals in other categories include 16 runs scored, 4 HRs, and 33 RBIs. Believe it or not, I'm winning in both HRs and RBIs, losing by 5 in runs scored, and getting killed in AVG and OBP. And of course, I have 0 SBs.

The SBs don't worry me as much, It would be impossible to stack HRs, RBIs, AND SBs, so I'm giving up 1 category for a guaranteed win in two others. However, am I lacking in AVG/OBP guys? Do I need more run-scorers?

I can't tell if I have holes in my team or if it's just a really bad week. Any advice helps.

Thanks

I take it the league is h2h, but does it count any other weird stats than OBP? Also, how many teams are in the league?

EDIT: didn't realize you made it clear you count OBP

Assuming the answers to the above Qs are 1. No, and 2. 10 or 12, I think your team is good and is just having a bad week. Teix apparently will do that to teams in April.

C- Martin
1B- Rizzo
2B- Pedroia

SS- Zobrist
IF- Cuddyer

8 teams, H2H each category 6x6. Runs, HRs, RBIs, SBs, AVG, OBP. Ks, Ws, Ls, SVs, ERA, WHIP.

Right now, I'm losing 2-9-1. I'm winning HRs and RBIs, tied in Ws, and losing everything else.
