My weekly fantasy article at The Hardball Times is up. It deal with bailing and the view from the bottom of the standings at Memorial Day.
Ironically, I found myself in that exact position in one of my NL-Only leagues this weekend and went on a roster make-up that saw my turn over 25% of my roster in two trades. I used my strength in SP (Johan Santana, Yovanni Gallardo and Tim Lincecum) and cheap, inexpensive players to address a rotation that had too many high risk flyers and not enough productive hitting.
Fortunately, no one in the league had bailed yet, so this is not so incompatible with my bailing article at THT, right?
FWIW, here is what I received and dealt in my version of a Memorial Day roster shake-up.
|SP Roy Oswalt||SP Tim Lincecum|
|RP Rafael Soriano||SP Jonathan Sanchez|
|RP Corey Wade||SP Felipe Paulino|
|C Brian McCann||C Ronnie Paulino|
|OF Austin Kearns||OF Gerardo Parra|
|OF Brandon Moss||OF Jordan Schafer|
|N/A||SP Ross Detwiler|
