    How do I fix this mess?

    Patience. That is the first step. Then Try shopping Andrus, but you wont get anything. I dont like Morneau any more on a roster. Still, ITS COLORADO. So, other than Andrus, the team looks OK. Even your catcher isnt going to kill you.

    He, and Swihart are about the only 2 guys I seriously been watching. I will play without a catcher until Mesoraco returns. I dropped both Joseph (C) and Canaha(1B) in order to make the moves. My 1st baseman(Pearce) SUCKS. But there is 12 active batters, and I make up for it with the other 11. Though now, too many OF. I can only play 6 at any one time! Now, do I drop Lackey to pick up Tolleson? I have a SV and NO LOSSES approach to my pitching staff. I am surprised he is still there!

    What do you do with John Lackey?

    15 teams, up to 28 players per team, Losses count, Potential for Gausman, Lackey doesnt get K's, and I am not chasing W's or K's in the league. So, I wait for Gausman to get his feet wet, and if he turns it around, then I start to use him. If not? Well, I am only looking to avoid losses, and pick up SV, with very low ERA/WHIP. That alone gives me 60 PTS in pitching categories, and I need to assure myself of 60 or so points in 6 hitting categories to put myself in top 3 by seasons end. Heck, that could be enough to make me the league Winner.

    Best case ERA is 3.5 to 3.8. Gets less than 8 K/9. But reliable. AND, I am looking for season value. I am not chasing W's or K's anyway. I may have to trade for Closers down the road. Our good man in LA, will be great bait when he gains a regular spot.

    I am trying to figure out how to get him on my deep roster 15 team,keeper league. Hope I dotn wait too long.

  • As the name implies, He Lackeys being a top notch pitcher. He has value in a deep league, but no trade value. He is 1 of my 4 SP's (Wainwright, Sale, Gausman, Lackey) and I am not chasing W's. Losses are counted in the league as well. Lackey would get 14-17 wins but with my strategy, I wont finish very high in W or K categories.
    I need to make a roster move. But must first get Axford off the DL. Do I drop Joseph, and go without a C, until Mesoraco returns? Do I Drop Giavotella who backs up Wong, and also my IF position? My 1b is WEAK with Canaha/Pearce manning the position so I am desperate from production there.

    I want to pick up Alex Guerrero who in the long run, once he has a position, will be a great contributor to season success.

    What do I do? WWYD?

    They say DONT DRAFT CLOSERS

    FASTER is the key. I have been with these same players for years, and I should know better. Unless you give 201 bones from your body, you will not be able to pry one off anybody. And, you have precisely 300 seconds to succeed getting one under most circumstances. Heck, many of the 3rd level closers are gone, in anticipation. It is only day 2, so maybe I will sneak one somewhere.
