How do you guys think this group of hitters will do after the break? It's a 16 team mixed league that counts OBP in addition to the standard 5 hitting categories. Starts 9 spots each day - 8 positions + UTIL.
1B- D Lee
2B- Weeks, K Matsui
SS- Aviles, Nomar, Barmes (just punted Lugo today as he got hurt)
OF- Beltran, Mclouth, Cust, Werth
So far, I am leading in R by a wide margin. I am in close fights near the top for HR and RBI. I am ok in SB and OBP but the BA is terrible. I am barely in first (could be out after tonight), mostly due to excellent pitching.
Other than Mclouth and Pierzynski, I personally don't see any significant risks for worse 2nd half than 1st and I don't view those 2 as huge risks. SS is a mess. Do you guys see any danger "sell now" guys?
I think your 2B is a mess too. I mean, I like Weeks to be better, but it's a risk. Kaz's is a batting average risk when healthy and the key word is "when." Also I like Thome to come around, which is not to say he definitely will, but either way his average isn't going to be great.
