8 team league
but im in 4th place and 17 games out of first
i thought that my team was jacked but the last 3 weeks i have lost 11-3, 10-4, and 12-2
y is my team slumping if it has so many great players
Like most people have suggested, you do have holes at your SS and 1B spots considering it's an 8 team league. Cantu would be a nice pick up for the third base position in a 10 or 12 team private or public, but he doesn't offer enough prime time power numbers to act as your first baseman in a shallower format.
You've got a nice balance of power and speed with your hitting; I would suggest trying to unload bradley before he implodes and maybe try and pick up some power over at first. Theriot is a solid source of BA, STLS, and potentially RUNS, but not an amazing source of any.
As far as your pitching is concerned, i would say you need at least one more closer to try and help solidify saves. I, myself, would try and get two more, along with a very solid mid-reliever to help the rest of your staff maintain the lowered percentages.
I would try to sell high on Cliff Lee, Ryan Dempster, and Milton Bradley.
i got a few teams but one of em is a 8 league team with some friends.. yours looks about average for 8 team.. like other people said look to deal hot players for better players who will turn it around.
1b Howard (traded ichiro)
SS Rollins (Traded Cueto after the first week)
3b A-Rod (Traded figgins n cliff lee early when a-rod was on dl)
OF Carlos Lee

you have played teams that are hot give it two more weeks and check out what your players have done no need to have a fire sale sometimes doing nothing can work better than feeling you have to do something slumps are part of baseball
