Following a good nights sleep I went back and looked at my draft. Even though my roster is littered with current and former Oakland Athletics I actually am quite pleased, and look forward to finshing somewhere in the middle of the standings.
first off, relax. the season really hasn't even started yet.
don't make any moves just yet. there's some decent players on your roster. give your team a couple weeks and see what they can do. see where your team's strengths are. Is it Hitting? Pitching? Both?
Before you make moves, first learn who's helping and hurting your team. and if a player is hurting your team, figure out where he's hurting your team. is he helping out in other areas? if not, cut him and go for someone hotter.
scout players around the league. monitor the +/- link on the free agents page. figure out why certain players are more popular currently than others. what are they doing? can they help your team?
scout other team's rosters. see what they're doing, if anything. what are their strengths and weaknesses? do you have any players that might help them but won't hurt your team if you lose him? if so, propose a trade.
ORRRR!!! better yet, just do whatever Know and Gibbons do. They're probably going to go 1-2 in the standings again this year anyway.

Standings after the first full week of baseball. I posted this for a few reasons:
1. I'm in first. 2. As the season progresses, point values will change less frequently and it's nice to be able to look back a week or two to see if you are losing or gaining ground on someone in a certain category and adjust your roster accordingly. 3. Wonk is in ninth. 4. I'm in first.
I'll try to post these standings every week on Wednesday. However, I am forgetful, and I will become more forgetful when wonk's team inevitably passes me.
