It’s just about the All-Star break. It’s the time of year when MLB teams decide if they have what it takes to make a run for the pennant or if they are better off trading veterans for youngsters that may help in the future.
It’s the same thing with fantasy baseball. If your fantasy baseball team is out of it, and you play in a keeper league, it’s time to do the same. But, most fantasy baseball leagues are not keeper leagues so now is the time to make adjustments to your team to make a run this year. Here’s some tips to help you improve things in the second half for your club.
- Evaluate your team now before it’s too late. What are your strengths and weaknesses? Where can you make changes to help you in the second half?
- Consider trades. Some managers will be in panic mode. It’s a great time to offer trades, especially to those cellar dwellers in your league.
- Take a break. If you play in a daily or head to head league, you need a break from the daily grind of being a fantasy baseball manager. Take a few days off and don’t look at the stats every evening and morning. Enjoy the home run derby instead.
- Don’t get lazy. Make sure you remember to adjust your lineup in weekly leagues. With no games early next week, you may neglect to do so.
- Don’t give up. There’s still half of the race remaining. In my experience, 30% of all fantasy baseball managers quit at the all star break. Don’t be a quitter; it’s never over until it’s over.
