Dear RotoRob: What Should I Change?

August 31, 2010 | by Tim McLeod | Comments (0)
Eric Young Jr. is getting plenty of PT for the Colorado Rockies.
Rookie Eric Young, Jr., is making a nice impact.

Dear RotoRob,

Re: Planning ahead to Week 22

My team is performing to the tune of a .266/.333/.445 line and losing all four of the AVG, OBP, SLG and OPS categories. This is because of the usual suspects Buster Posey, Orlando Hudson, Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino. My pitching is also struggling, as for the second straight week I’m having ratio-killing starts. I’m winning 6-5 in homers and 2-0 in steals, so unless something changes, i’d gain nothing with Eric Young, Jr. starting.

Anything you see that needs changing, or is it dependent on my opponent’s team next week? Other teams are starting to get active again with wire changes, so I don’t have the free rein as I once did on the wire.

My current roster:

C – Brian McCann
1B – Prince Fielder
2B – Orlando Hudson
3B – Adrian Beltre
SS – Jimmy Rollins
OF – Matt Holliday/Shane Victorino/Andre Ethier
UTIL – Buster Posey/Aramis Ramirez
BN – Eric Young, Jr.
DL – Dustin Pedroia

SP – Felix Hernandez/Jair Jurrjens/Ted Lilly
RP – Neftali Feliz/Matt Capps/Billy Wagner
P – Brandon Lyon/Mat Latos/Yovani Gallarado
BN – Trevor Cahill/Gavin Floyd/Adam Wainwright/Daniel Hudson

All or most of the Wire Troll recommendations in the post from last week should be available, though I haven’t monitored the other teams’ moves closely enough to know for sure.

Hi Jay,

You have a good balance of power and speed. Your pitching is top-tier with good strikeout and win potential. However, the closer situation in Minnesota is a bit scary right now with the arrival of Brian Fuentes. Is Koji Uehara available in your league? If he is I’d make the switch with Capps as it appears that Uehara has the inside track in Baltimore and I think the situation in Minnesota has the potential to be a closer-by-committee scenario. I like your team and its potential to be successful. Let’s hope your guys heed the call and produce at the level they’re capable of and you’ll be in good shape.

After being hampered by a toe injury throughout much of 2008, Gates rebounded last year to post a career-high 1,157 receiving yards. He also added eight touchdowns, marking the sixth straight season he’s tallied at least that many.

Video Game Review: Mafia II

August 30, 2010 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off on Video Game Review: Mafia II
Melee combat is rudimentary as holding down the “A” button allows you to evade all punches, leaving you to simply wait for an opening to unload your own combos. Driving feels a bit loose, but considering the game is simulating car handling from the 1940s and ’50s it could be more of a design choice. Regardless, I felt like it was too easy to lose control of your car, and fishtailing was rampant.

The Wire Troll: Trolling for Saves

August 29, 2010 | by Tim McLeod | Comments (1)
It’s time to briefly discuss a little year-end Fantasy strategy. For those Fantasy owners playing in leagues with an inning cap for pitching, it’s important to remember that stat service providers do in fact allow you to exceed that maximum. On the day your team exceeds the maximum, all stats accrued on that day will count. If you have points to gain on that last weekend in both wins and strikeouts, loading up on your starting pitching can be a difference maker. It can be a long winter when you come up one win or a handful of strikeouts short of a league title.
