I posted this last night and got some good feedback. Wanted to see what anyone else thought. check back at my other post too.
Any blaring weaknesses, players to get rid of, improvements I can make?
Overall my team has been doing pretty good. (currently in 1st, barely) But this week in my 10 team H2H league I've been getting my butt kicked. Some of my starting pitchers have been the reason my score is so low. (currently 3-12) Ouch. One of which was Jered Weaver, who I just got rid of for Rasner. I benched Verlander for his last start too, because I've been hurt too much by him so far almost every other start of his.
My hitting has pretty much sucked though this week. I have no HRs and some of my other categories, including BA are lacking and very low.
Category stats: R, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG, OPS, XBH, W, L, SHO, SV, ER, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, BSV
Martin C slumping right now, i'll keep him, but iannetta is still available
Conor Jackson 1B
Hill 2B keep hill or get someone else. what about velez for sbs
Theriot 2B,SS used as backup. someone said to get rid of him
Hart CF, RF
Verlander SP I'm keeping him on the bench and waiting
Lackey SP, almost off DL will need to make room for him
Corpas RP thinking about getting rid of
Juan Cruz RP
THANKS A BUNCH!
pick up ianetta. He's the backup and only supposed to get half the playing time, but that won't last if he keeps hitting like he is. Get rid of corpas. He's done. Jackson is still hurt even though he's playing. I benched him on my team. Doesn't look like you have an option though. hill has been hitting the ball a little better (lots of doubles) so I might wait on him for awhile. DO NOT get rid of Theriot. Big mistake. They must have been thinking of Cedeno being a backup. I'd start him ahead of hill until hill starts hitting again. Lackey is supposed to start Wed or thurs so get rid of corpas for him. Besides that, unless you get hitting stats for pitchers, Owings is going to get hurt again. I'd try to trade him for a true pitcher while he still has value.
The only things that stand out to me are: Unless you think Cliff Lee is going to pitch out of his mind all year, you might want to trade him for a serious upgrade at 2B or 1B. Theriot is hot right now, but expect him to slide back under .290. Maybe you use him as trade bait (or throw him into a bigger trade). Pitching is nicely balanced, but I'm not a Rasner fan (yeah, he pitched okay yesterday). Other than that, your guys are just in a slump. Forget about this week.
