It wasnt my plan but there were just too many solid bats slipping through each round that I had to take them. I realized in the 8th that I might be in trouble so I started going pitcher happy. I think I'm in pretty good shape, especially if I can keep an eye on a few of the pitchers still on the WW.
C - VMart
1B - Dunn
2B - Weeks (hope he doesnt go to DL)
3B - Wright
SS - Young
OF - Shef
OF - C. Lee
OF - Sizemore
UTIL - Hafner
BN - Holliday
BN - Hermida
Pitching Staff is young and questionable
I was looking at the pitchers that didnt get drafted and there are still several I would pick up.. Do you think I should drop one of the above mentioned for C. young, B. Penny, B. Halsey, C. Silva, Erik Bedard, D. Bush. ???
Thanks for the help
It's interesting to note the similarities in all the pitching staffs of these managers who are passing on SP (by design or whatever). It is a trend that has essentially taken over the cafe, and for very valid reasons, but I'm seeing a lot of Haren's and Blanton's and Webb's. Seems like everyone has them
. Also, does anyone think that this trend may have a reverse effect? I mean obviously in public leagues or any relatively uneducated ones, managers are going to reach for the ever-shaky starting pitchers. But it seems that in a veteran league, there would be many opportunities for high value picks at SP. I'm not saying that I would employ this strategy myself as I prefer the former, but do you think this will begin to happen?
