Hello WunderChad and Muntradamus,
First of all, WunderChad, welcome to the Beastdome Community and glad to have another astute perspective upon Fantasy Baseball. Also, just followed you on Twitter! I was wondering if you could help me with my current situation… I am in a 14 man H2H “raw fantasy score” league and am still becoming more acclimated with the sport (1st time in Fantasy Baseball and Fantasy Sports for that matter). Cliff Lee, my all star pitcher, is currently out at the moment, and my amazing relief pitcher Mariano Rivera could potentially have a career ending injury. Furthermore, Pablo Sandoval is out as well. Anyway, what I intend on asking is, what adjustments if any should be taken in order to improve my team? Here is my current line up:
Thanks in advance, and I appreciate the articles!
Scream, otherwise known as Garrett
Yea, welcome WunderChad
Thanks for the welcome, guys. Glad to be here. Garrett, the first thing to do is onvious, and that’s drop Rivera. That leaves you with two empty roster spots which I would fill with Beckett, who someone foolishly dropped in your league, and Scott Downs. Downs migh not be he closer the rest of the way, but while he is, he should be owned. I would also try to trade one of your catchers for additional starting pithing help.
Sorry for the typos. My phone is being moody.
Alright I just made the adjustments, should I consider picking up Adam Wainwright in the future as well when Scott Downs ends he hot streak (if he does anyway)?
