What to think? WHIR

Postby shoelessjoetara » Sat Apr 21, 2007 2:30 am

Have to ask this, is it still to early to panic? I am in 4th place currently,but the guy in first is stretching his lead with every HR that A-rod hits. I am still waiting for Pujols and Sheffield to come around. My lineup is stacked with HR potential but none of the guys that I have are really tearing the cover off of the ball except for Holiday and Kent and thay arent hitting HR. Piazza was supposed to be a little better than what he is doing also. When I look at it the guy leading my league ,he really has everyone that is playing above their potential except for A-Rod. And to be honest, he is playing better than he has ever played.

I thought we agreed you were to trade Pujols.

Dude - relax. You're answering your own question. You said your guys are underachieving, all the guys on the first place team are overachieving. Enough said. LONG SEASON. Don't do anything major until mid-May, then evaluate the situation. Until then, tweak a bit here and there sitting cold guys, rotating in some hot guys in your last couple of roster spots, etc. to make sure you stay in the top half of the standings. Then see how things look from there and start making some more major moves via trade to fix any big problem areas.

Don't even consider dropping anyone until the middle of May. Don't ever consider dropping Pujols. A-Rod won't keep hitting HRs at his current rate nor will Pujols continue to hit at his rate.

IT'S APRIL. I've seen a guy be in 3rd last place at the end of May, then come back and beat me by 5 points by the end of the season.

So just relax.

The NFL Draft is coming up. Shortly after at least you'll have your Fantasy Football Cheat Sheets to look forward to. It was a fun fantasy baseball season, wasn't it?
