“We had some opportunities tonight, but we just couldn’t finish when we needed to. That’s something that luckily we will get a chance to correct [tonight] when we play them again.”-Buster Posey

With only 24 games left in the season my fantasy teams has come a long way. Let me preface by saying, just four short weeks I gladly took over this sad bunch of guys that was called a team, and now I made them into a majestic group of men.
Finally, making it to tenth place, at a solid 43 points (which my goal was 42 when I took over). I now feel (obviously) compelled to keep them on track. We will be hitting 9th place by the end of the season, I just feel like.
Listen here, taking on a fantasy team, epically baseball is a lot of work. You have to be on your game, and not miss a day. You need to update your team daily (there is never an off day in baseball). It’s a long season, they’re in it for the long-haul, so you should be too. During my short four weeks of managing Pocket Full of Posey (PFP) I’ve made the mistake of not updating my roster three times, and that was a rookie mistake, and I’m practically on the verge of tears when I realize it’s too late.
I want to leave you with a few tips I’ve learned so far.
- Scout the minors: keep an eye on the minor leagues–these kids are getting called up like crazy these days
- When you have less than awesome Pitchers– steam them
- Steaming isn’t just for pitchers–look for players who are playing doubleheaders
- No, but seriously: check out the free agents- you can always add a key player late in the season that could make a huge impact
- Make sure your team is balanced with HR/RBI batters, and AVG, SB, R batters
- Don’t worry if your Catcher isn’t great, and let the rest of your team make up for it (well, they should) *note, obviously my pitcher rules, my whole team is named after him.
- Always be reading–you have to do your research, if you want the best team
I know my team will never make it to the top three in this season, but there is always hope for next year. So men: Cliff Lee, Jered Weaver, Mat Latos, Buster Posey, Bryce Harper–I’ll be seeing ya’ll next year. But until then, make me proud the rest of this season. Let’s finish strong and proud.
