16-3...wow..put a thumping on the Twinkies. Too bad we're probably used our run allotment for the rest of the week. That powerhouse bullpen should be able to handle the load though.


And how 'bout those Mariners...went 10-0 on a 10 game road trip. Looks like they're back in form. I think on paper they may very well be a better team than last year, as scary as that may sound.

figures they would win that big. after watching the last 2 games in a row, i thought about watching the game. then i suddenly got a sick feeling in my stomach, and wouldn't you know it they played their best game of the year! hmmmm, i think i found a pattern here. I AM BAD LUCK! so if i don't watch the rest of the year we will win 150+games!

Ok baseball experts. I need your advice.

This is my 1st year playing fantasy baseball.

My roster consists of

Orlando Hernandez NYY
Jeff Suppan KC
Ben Sheets MIL
Micheal Barrett MON
Shea Hillenbrand BOS
Derek Jeter NYY
Jaque Jones MIN
Johnny Damon BOS

Do you see anything that I could improve on? I'm thinking the pitching dept. could use an upgrade, am I right?

I don't know much about baseball so any advice would be very very appreciative.

Oh no you don't! I have never gotten involved in fantasy games outside of football and, this year, Nascar. Oh, and the NCAA tourney one too.

In other words, when it comes to fantasy baseball, I am clueless!

Double 10
Triple 15
Home Run 20

Stolen Base 10
Caught Stealing -5

Pitching
Win 30
Save 30
Loss -15

Ok...your pitching could probably use an upgrade. Hernandez could pick up a fair amount of wins if he stays healthy just because he plays for the Yankees. Sheets should be solid, hope he avoids the sophomore slump..and Suppan...well...he's Suppan. Those last two could end up giving you more losses than wins, although Sheets could slide slighty above .500 if he pitches really well and they find somebody to close games.

You get 8 players...is there like a free agent list you can select from or it is like a salary cap game where everyone has a value and you have to keep it under the cap?

I'd start by fortifying your pitching staff. I'm a big, big pitching homer when it comes to fantasy baseball. I always try to get guys who will be reliable for me on the mound every time out and try to build solid hitting around it. With losses giving you a -15...you might be better off taking an average fourth or fifth starter from a really good team over a average one or two from a team that won't win many games. Also, if a save's worth 30 pts and there aren't any decent starters..you might want to try getting a closer. A good closer will get twice as many saves as the best starter will have wins. I'd only go after a really reliable closer though, as any runs he gives up will really hurt because he doesn't pitch as many innings.

Don't kill me if this doesn't work. It's harder to play fantasy baseball than almost any other fantasy sport. I'm always tinkering with my team to see what works best. I usually end up doing pretty good though.

Salary cap, everyplayer is available. I am thinking I should dump Sheets. Not impressed with last 2 outings. Suppy hasn't been to bad but I have thought to replace him with Byrd(gotta have a Royals pitcher, don't ask) would save some money and produce better than Suppy. So dump Sheets for a reliever?

I don't know, Sheets has pitched pretty well and he's probably come cheap. He was ejected from his last start because he was ejected in a fight. Otherwise, his stats look pretty decent. The only question will be if he'll be able to pick up wins. I don't know if I'd dump him for a closer, I might dump him if you could find a better starter cheap though.

Do you just start out with a specific amount to spend and then that number can go higher/lower depending on the value of your players? I've played games like that..where the players values changed from week to week based on how many people had them on their team. It throws a big economic wrench in your gameplan. I always tried to play those like the stock market..buy low, sell high. I did that one year in a game that started off with 75 mil to spend and ended up with 98 million dollars, the most in the league. I finished in 2nd place though, so I don't know if I'd call it a success.
