Is this really a 10th place team?

Postby mindspin311 » Wed May 02, 2012 7:23 pm

Frustrated beyond belief right now. Hitting is terrible, 6 of the 7 days of the week. Pitching is slightly above average.

Then what do I need to do to improve? Other than simply dumping everyone who sucks right now. Seems like a solid team on paper, but Ive just been floating at the bottom of the barrel for 2 weeks now.

There's no reason to carry 2 catchers in a 1 catcher league. It's a waste of a bench spot.
I like sports with balls in them.

It's hard to give advice on what you could do to help your team without seeing a list of who is available on the free agent list. Without seeing that the best anyone can say is try and do a couple two for one deals where you get the best player, and try and grab some hour players on the wire

Well, its a last place team now. My guys just arent hitting, at all. Tons of potential if you look at previous years performance.

Are there any glaring areas that need improvement?

Here are the Top 25 hitters and pitchers

I like Smyly, Bass, and Arrieta better than Henderson Alvarez, but that doesn't do anything to help your offense. Chris Johnson has been hot the past week or so, so you might try dropping Salty for him and riding the hot streak.

Drop Salty for Kelly Johnson, then plug him in at 2nd.

Johnson was picked up this morning. Then I also lost Sandoval. Plugged Davis into Panda's spot.

I grabbed Anthony Bass for a spot start and dropped Salty for him.

I am trying to work a trade for Michael Bourn and possibly David Ortiz. Other guy needs steals and starter. I have offered Zobrist/Schafer/Tim Hudson
