How bad did I do? WHIR

Postby pappymojo » Sun Mar 29, 2009 1:08 pm

twelve team H2H Yahoo league that starts C, 1B, 2B,3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P:

C M Weiters (with no back up)
1B L Berkman
2B Alexei Ramirez
3B Aramis Ramirez
SS J Rollins
OF C Lee
OF M Ordonez
OF C Hart
Util Chris Davis
SP F Hernandez
SP R Nolasco
RP B Fuentes
RP H Bell
P Z Greinke
P E Bedard
P J Vazquez
P S Baker
P J Johnson
P A Wainwright
P K Escobar
P J Zimmermann

It's a daily start league with a limit on moves which is why my bench is loaded with pitchers. I assume Escobar will start the season on the DL. Is that right? I obviously need a back up catcher to start the year, but there's really no one that interests me and I could probably use a fourth outfielder and a back up closer. I also just read about Berkman's injury. Yikes.

Here are some free available free agents:

OF S Choo
OF A Jones
OF A Lind
OF F Lewis
OF G Sheffield
OF S Schumaker
C R Hernandez
C J Clement
C Y Molina
SP M Parra
SP A Galarraga
SP M Pelfrey
RP J Arredondo
RP J Accardo
RP C Ray
RP M Gonzalez
RP J Hanrahan
1B/3B H Blalock
SS C Guzman


Any suggestions on moves I should make? Thank you.

I love the team, but you need a cather. Weiters is not the starter, pick up Hernandez and drop Zimmerman

I was thinking the exact same thing. I dont know who elese you would move, but Im trying to fit Ray on my bench, he will produce solid numbers this season.

Your team is absolutely stacked. Great strategy on loading up with pitchers (and I like the high K guys). You should be contending for the league championship.
Thanks for the help on mine

Yup, very good team! I agree with dropping Zimmerman for Hernandez. Or you could try and trade two of your pitchers for a better catcher like Iannetta maybe. Then just pick up one of the FA pitchers since guys like Pelfrey and Parra could be pretty good finds anyway (assuming its not categories where Parra may hurt your Whip and or ERA). Is this a strictly points league or is it categories? Escobar is going to start on the DL and should be back in late April/early May. Do you have DL spots? If so another option could be to just wait till you can move Escobar to the DL and then pick up Hernandez.

Thoughts on mine please?

I would say pick up Jeff Clement. He is a huge upside Catcher for fantasy. Also you might want to take a gamble at Mike Gonzalez if you are hurting in RP

He already took his gamble on Wieters.

I agree with picking up Hernandez and dropping Zimmermann until Wieters is called back up. I like Ray a little more than Gonzalez, but if I were you, I wouldn't drop any other starters to stash a closer. In my leagues, there always seem to be unexpected closers available for waiver pick-up if either of my primary options falter.

Good team, definately grab Ramon. Try to find a backup first baseman.

Also, watch out for Fuentes, he could lose his job, probably to Accardo or Shields.
