SP,RP Eligible Players on Yahoo

Postby IVIisfits138 » Wed Mar 04, 2009 7:25 pm

I searched but I couldn't find anything, but usually someone makes a thread of players on Yahoo! that are both SP,RP eligible. I have an odd H2H league with scoring categories and team positions that I am looking to take advantage of. The pitching cats are W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP with 6 SP spots, and 3 RPs. Thus my plan is to punt W and K and focus on the other categories. Since I only have 3 RP spots to work with, I need pitchers that can get holds with SP eligibility. So far the only worthwhile pitchers I have found are,
Bennett,Jeff
Kuo,Hong-Chih
Masterson,Justin
Villanueva,Carlos

Has anyone else looked for these options also, or know of any pitchers that may gain SP,RP eligibility during this season?

Most of the rest aren't worth your time, but I'll throw some out:

Jeff Samardzija (not yet but if he gets some starts)
J.A. Happ (not yet but if he gets bullpen duty)
Jason Hammel
Chan Ho Park
Ryan Rowland-Smith
Clayton Richard
Yusmeiro Petit
Garrett Mock
Matt Albers

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

I don't think any of those guys would fit into the RP with SP eligibility strategy.

Miguel Batista has dual eligibility and could win the closer spot in Seattle. I'm not sure how he would be used for holds if he doesn't win the position.

I do not think your strategy will work too well. The guys that have sp,rp eligibilty are not dominant enough and will thus likely wreak havoc on your era and whip. You also will not have any advantage in saves to the other teams. Also you could get these guys cheap anyway. So you are punting two categories for a marginal at best gain in one category.
