I am in an 8 team 5x5 roto league, obviously there are some nice free agents available.
1.)Do you think I should drop Pat Burrell or J.J. Hardy and replace them with the following players: Atkins, Peralta, Aviles, Ethier, or Cantu.
2.)Also, I currenly have 3 closers (Fuentes, Heath Bell, and Qualls.) do you think any of these free agent closers are better...Gregg, Street, Mike Gonzalez, Morrow, Motte, Hoffman, Percival, Frank Francisco, Devine, Ziegler, Lindstrom, or Chris Perez? I am leaning toward dropping Bell or Qualls and picking up Kevin Gregg, what do you think?
WHIR for sure!
Here is my entire team: Ianetta Teixeira Utley Hardy Wright Ichiro B.J. Upton Kemp Rios Util: Fielder Util: Adrian Gonzalez BN: Burrell
Peavy Billingsley Fuentes Heath Bell James Shields Wainwright BN:Bedard BN:Qualls
Wow that's tough. There are 5-7 closers about equal to Qualls. That tempts me to say keep Burrell just because of supply and demand (but then again, I'm sure there are plenty of good hitters on FA too).
I'd rank the closers like this:
J. Motte, F. Francisco, Qualls, Gregg, Morrow, Hoffman, Percival
In a league that shallow with lots available, go with the highest upside in terms of ratios and Ks. If they don't pan out, fall back on a different option like Gregg, Hoff, Percival.
