Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Ok so you won't believe me but below is my roster in a 20 team h2h keeper league. How is it that I am third in my division and any suggestions on who to move?
C- Wieters. OF - Beltran, Braun, Swisher
1b - fielder
2b - pedroia. SP - lee, bumgarner, price, j.johnson, oswalt
3b - Wright and Sabathia
SS - Rollins. CP- Rodney, romo, league
Bench - Kubel, Sizemore (DL) and Feliz (DL)
That is a great roster for a 20 team league.
The most logical answers for you being 3rd in your division would be that you are a lousy and somewhat inactive day-to-day manager or that you play in some bullshit "weekly" league or some bullshit points league that his highly skewed point values.

Shut the fuck up Dick Weak. Go crawl back under your hole you arrogant Assh0le !
Why don't you go be a man and respond to your Chone Figgins post, it was just bumped and has, what like 160 replies now? I can't believe you still try to give advice and some people out there actually take you seriously. Oh well they'll learn.
Bottom line, don't take Dick seriously at all, he's just bringing the Yahoo boards further down in the trash, and all he'll do is start name calling and call you dumb, then try to finish off his reply with his own unwise opinions.
He wouldn't know logical if it hit him in his ugly face.
Otherwise, to the OP, your pitching is most definitely the biggest problem, and I wouldn't even want Oswalt in a 20 team league, honestly. He's looking very sub par even in AA and AAA play. Your hitters are slumping, and I have almost no faith in Rollins, he's sort of like a Ryan Howard to me, too far past the prime. I'd try to deal him, I think he won't start playing well enough until around all star time. There are a few more problems, but it's a good team overall, others have given you some sound insight.
Fielder started slow, Rollins started very slow, he's coming around now. Swisher was on the DL for awhile wasn't he? That's my first impressions, don't know much else about your league. Also, is Sizemore on a DL slot or a bench slot? get rid of him if he's taking up a bench spot. He's not worth it.
Your studs aren't the best players. Are you surprised to be doing so well or shocked to be in 3rd??
Wieters- all Orioles but Jones will fall from grace. this guy was highly touted but he's firmly placed himself as an average catcher.
Beltran- surprise success with bad knees, be happy you have him unless you drafted him early. then I'd say be lucky he's on!
Pedroia- another f'd up year in Boston, Pedey's avg has dipped. Maybe his teammates' trouble have gotten in his head.
Johnson-injury prone. if he turns it around, trade him before he breaks down again.
Oswalt- just a named at this point. already getting rocked in the minors so far.
Rollins- this guy's not retired yet? you drafted him for the name.
Rodney- lucky you picked him instead of Hector Santiago.
League- didn't he already lose his gig?
Kubel- streaky: strong first half is all you'll get.
Sizemore- you didn't drop him yet?
Feliz- sorry, looks like Oswalt's got his job now.
on paper, you have crap. on the "field," it's still crap.
One of the best ways to tell how your stacking up is going to the "Team Stats" area on your League overview sheet.
You can sort the stats by H2H or totals. Chances are you have been consistant and doing well but getting teams as they are having hot weeks. If you are in the top 4 or 5 in most catagories you are probably where you are producing. If you are in the top 1-3 spots per cat, you are getting unlucky with the matchups and eventually this will start to work out on your side.
