FIrst Week of Fantasy

My first week of Fantasy is over, I had a few bright spots, Utley, Carl Crawford, and Wandy did ok, but the injury bug really hurt this week with Wandy, Oswalt, Hanley and Thome all playing limited time for my team.  Not a good thing when you have to face a team that has Linecum, Halladay, Carpenter and Felix Hernandez.  I already swapped out Thome for Willingham and dropped Volquez for young phenom beckham from the White Sox.  I also picked up Dark Horse Latos from the PADs, he has two starts this week along with my other rookie two start starter Brett Anderson so my week is depending on rookies along with Nieman, boy am I hurting.  With Wandy and Oswalt questionable this week I have to use these rooks just to stay competitive.  I am also taking a chance that Hanley will play this week with that knee contusion, if not my week might be done especially if the rooks do not come thru. 

I have to look at the bright side at least I was not the lowest scoring team in my league for the week, but stil 80 plus points from the highest.  There is always next week.

Fantast team is just avg right now

My fantasty team is still struggling to score points, I only have one person over 20 points this week and that happened tonight with de la rosa pitching an ok game going 6 and 1/3 2 runs and a win, giving him 21 points, Jim thome not playing untli today and with Oswalt having back problems really hurt my first week in this fantasy league.  Still looking for a good start from blanton, wandy this week.  Hopefully Howell and Soriano can pick up a couple of saves this weekend.  Looking to trade werth for someone, not cutting the mustard, not sure if this is temporary or long term, otherwise I am happy with Suzuki, Utley, Billy Butler, Hanley, Crawford, Ibanez, j willingham and Reynolds.  Pitchers  Blanton, de la rosa, oswalt (when healthy), wandy, brett anderson, edwin jackson, niemann, and Marguis.  Still holding on to Volquez hoping he comes back strong off the DL, if so looking to drop or trade one of my pitchers to pick up some infield support.

later
