your top 3 are great, your back end has a bit of drop off.
why did you feel you needed all those pitchers?
Agreed that Lee will have drop off - but he's my 4th starter.
Scherzer will be back after first week.
Guthrie was just a waiver pick-up to fill in this week because Santana and Scherzer are out.
Got E. Santana in 24th round of 25 round draft - that's why I took him. He'll be a hell of a bargain when he comes back.
Don't necessarily agree on Dice-K - I project around a 3.50 ERA and 1.30 WHIP, and I don't consider those outrageous.
I picked up all these pitchers because I want to try and dominate all 5 pitching categories on a consistent basis. On offense, I'm focusing on steals. Goal is to win those 6 categories every week. So, even with the flaws you are pointing out, point is this pitching staff is significantly stronger than my competitions. The way you are evaluating it, it's like you are comparing it to the top pitchers in the league - not the best drafted staffs.
