Struggling, need some repairs.

Postby LMack » Tue May 24, 2011 5:21 pm

Hey Grey.
10 team 5x5 roto league with OBP instead of average, and I'm struggling. Time to panic?

R-5 HR-7.5 RBI-4 SB-9 OBP-4
K-5 W-4 SV-10 ERA-7 WHIP-4
Total Points - 59.5, good for 6th place (1st has 76.5)

The Roster
C - Mike Napoli
1B- Prince Fielder
2B- Justin Turner (I drafted the awful tandem of Tsuyoshi and Brian Roberts)
3B- Jhonny Peralta/Mark Reynolds
SS- Jose Reyes
OF - Braun, Bruce, Markakis
UTIL - Morneau, Crisp
DL - Heyward, Victorino

SP - Kershaw, Liriano, Scherzer, Anderson, Kuroda, Chacin, Bedard.
RP - Putz, Perez, Hanrahan, League

First and foremost, in a 10 team league I need to find a more permanent solution at 2B. I've just been turning the hot hand to try to at least catch some counting stats. But other than that, I'm not sure where I need to go. I feel like I have strong SPs (despite Liriano) but my W and K remain low. Any specific area that needs to be addressed besides 2B? Whats wrong with this team?

Your pitching should be okay. Your hitting is a mess. Crisp is fine in general, but there's gotta be a better UTIL guy for your team. You have plenty of speed. You need RBIs/HRs. Maybe Ludwick or someone else that is currently hot and has power. Also, first sign of life with Morneau you should be trying to get rid of him for anything. If that doesn't work, package Heyward with him and upgrade.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

I think you also only need 3 closers. I would sell victorino instead of heyward and hope reyes is enough or sagnof later. Go for pure power in your OF and util. One other thing is you could dump napoli for a catcher with better obp.

Couple 2B options on the table.

I give Morneau, Jhonny Peralta, and a closer
I get Brandon Phillips
(Selling Morneau too low?)

OR

What about a buy low on Uggla? Owner says I would be able to do it with a closer and a little more (probably SP or OF swap with me downgrading)

Like either?
