General Message Board
I'm in an 8-team H2H league (6-teams in playoffs) currently in 1st place by 9.5 games. I like my team and don't see a need for a drastic improvement but I'd like a 2nd opinion. Maybe I should trade a bat or two acquire another pitcher?
Scoring Categories are:
Batting: H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, BB, K
Pitching: W, SV, ERA, HLDS, K, WHIP, QS
Here is my team:
C - Carlos Santana
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Rickie Weeks, Chase Utley(usually on bench because I really like Weeks)
SS - Yunel Escobar, Jose Reyes(on DL)
OF(3 positions) - Jay Bruce, Melky Cabrera, Carlos Gonzalez, Lance Berkman
1 Util position I use for one of the above OF
SP - Jered Weaver, David Price, Kyle Lohse, Johnny Cueto, Hiroki Kuroda, Jeff Karstens
RP - Mariano Rivera, Francisco Cordero, Drew Storen, Johnny Venters, Rafael Soriano (on DL)
Possibilities are trading Escobar, Weeks, or Utley to aquire an Ace or reliable closer down the stretch since I have a batter usually on the bench and Reyes can come off the DL this week. But is my pitching good enough? I've only lost 2 matches all year and tied one so there are no real weaknesses.
Does my team stand a great chance of winning down the stretch? If not, who should I acquire?
