You're hosed. You drafted a poor team.
This has to be frustrating... You drafted a team that is probably better than any Yankee's team you've ever seen play. The problem is, however, that at $80m, most of the teams you're facing could beat all star teams.
Pitching is a good place to start. Your staff has a combined R/L1.22 WHIP, and it comes from years that don't normalize favorably for pitchers. So your staff WHIP is actually worse than displayed.
Check the team WHIP for the top team in your division. It's under 1.0. My guess is that most of the other teams will be similar.
HR's... Are not a good strategy in the sim. I dislike this as well, but pitchers have more of an influence in suppressing HR's than hitters have in hitting them.
If you're going to continue playing (and it's fun to play) you'll need to do some research.
Find a good thread on normalization and read it until you understand it.
If you can find the thread I posted a few years ago about the decision tree, you might want to read that as well. It points out which RL stats are actually used in the sim. RBI's, Wins, Saves, and ERA are essentially meaningless.
Hope that's of some help.
I once posted a thread telling which stats are important... Basically, though, if you look at WHIP# and HR/9#, you'll d
