Hello everybody,

I've tossed in my roster for good measure...

8 team H2H 5x5 weekly nonkeeper)
C Victor Martinez (C/1B)
1B Ryan Howard
2B Chase Utley
3B Ryan Zimmerman
SS Carlos Guillen
OF Matt Holliday
OF Alex Rios
OF Willy Taveras
Util Derrek Lee
BN Howie Kendrick (1B/2B)
BN Edgar Renteria
BN Corey Hart

Pitching
SP John Smoltz

Saves, Wins and SB's are hardest to control........if you start to do awful in ERA and Whip in the beginning of the week and know you can't recover, start picking up as many starting pitchers and you can to guarantee you to win Wins, K's(some leagues don't allow this, but if yours does, I would take advantage)..........finally, hitting is harder to comeby than pitching so try and trade to stack your hitting targeting higher average guys because that seems to be a stat that easier to control

Hope this helps

He's in a weekly league, so he won't be able to blitzkreig the WW at the end of the week to salvage wins and K's. That's why I prefer weekly lineups. ;-D

If you are in weekly format. Save one or 2 slots to rotate pitchers every week for pitchers that have 2 starts. If they have 2 quality starts against poor teams, even the better!

Monitoring the SP for one that starts twice in a week is a good idea. I hadn't thought of that. It should help with innings, k and wins.

Would you recommend dropping a RP to add an additional SP who might start twice in a week (Lidge or Saito)?

6 team league (H2H); Start 2 SP, 2 RP, 3P

C: R.Hernandez
1B: Pujols
2B: Roberts
3B: Wright
SS: Tejada
OF: Guerrero, Damon, Pierre
Util: Young
Bench: Thome, Delgado, Dunn

SP: Zambrano, Peavy, Halladay, B. Meyers, Haren, Schmidt
RP: Jenks, Saito, Lidge
DL: Gange
