5 x 5 Roto 12 teamer with 8 keepers. 1250 IP Maximum limit.
C- J. Willingham
2B- F.Sanchez (Picked him up Aug.26 before deadline)
Util- D.Lee (I do my best to follow his crazy sit-start pattern)
BN- N.Markakis (Subs in for Lee and Figgins)
BN- M. Cuddyer (Same)
SP- A.Heilman (Picked him up today, effective tom.)
SP- C C Sabathia
BN- O.Hernandez (This is my spot-start slot. I may just keep El Duque because I don't need to spot-start for innings pace anymore and this guy has been HOT)
Prospect- Chad Billingsley (Rights till End 06')
Prospect- Billy Butler (Rights till End 06')
Prospect- Daisuke Matsuzaka (Rights till end 07')
Prospect- Felix Pie (Rights till end 07')
With these prospect rights, I can hold them in the FA - not my roster - and add or drop them whenever. When their rights expire the only way I can keep them is by having them as one of my 8 MLB keepers.
Current Rankings- Out of 12
Runs- 8.0 (808) -Lock for 7, most likely 8. 3 R's from 9.0.
HomeRuns- 11.0 (224) - Lock for 11 pts.
RBIs- 10.0 (452)- Lock for 8, most likely 9. 3 Rbis from 11.0
SBs- 10.0 (129)- Lock for 8. 4 SBs from 12.0 (It's CLOSE)
.AVG-5.5 (.281) -This is never a lock but Im .004 Ahead of 4.0 and tied for 5.5 (the tied team's offense hasnt been hitting for avg. mine has)
Wins- 6.5 (69)- Obviously tied here and 2 wins above 5.0.
Saves- 12.0 (55)- 2 saves ahead of 11.0. Seems like a lock though. I got 4 closers/day to his 3 and I have 2 closers on the bench to fill in for off-days. Ill have 4 going every day.
Ks- 10.0 (966)- 42 above 9.0. 46 above 8.0. 10 from 11.0.
ERA- 11.0 (3.87) -Crazy race here. 0.02 above 10.0. 0.04 above 9.0. 12.0 is FAR ahead of us.
WHIP- 7.5 (1.29) -Another race. Tied and 0.01 above 6.0 and 0.02 above 5.0 (But 5.0 has a poor staff and gave up this year)
Overall- 91.5, 2 points above 2nd.
Im at 1183.1 IP and something like 30 innings above pace. I've made 80 moves. Im probally going to spot start once more (G.Chacin or J.Lieber) and then leave it to my big 4 and closers to eat up the rest of the innings.
My offense has been amazing this 2nd half and is hot right now. The only offensive category I've slowed down in is SB's. Im thinking about picking up a speedy guy.
Anyway, to get through a bunch of injuries and hard-times to have a surging 2nd half and an epic last-half-of-september run to pick up my first league title in a competitive money league in my first year of fantasy baseball would be amazing.
Update: edited line because figgins got another hit. Just a triple that got him the CYCLE! With that hit I also gain another .5 points as I've tied for the next slot in BA.
