10 team, keeper league, H2H
7x7, w/ standard 5x5 cats + H, OPS and K/9, QS
So I targeted SP due to QS. Also targeted young pitchers that I thought would have high k/9 (due to keeper league). I ended up w/ M. Gonzales and Hoffman as my Closers (sucks in a 10 team league IMO). However, w/ Hoffman out a month and Scherzer also out, I only have 1 player w/ RP eligibility (M. Gonzalez).
Do I drop a player to pick up a RP, or just leave that spot empty? Right now I'm leaning toward dropping hoffman, as he has the least value in a keeper league IMO.
2B: B. Roberts
3B: Aramis Ramirez
OF: J. Bruce
UTIL: P. Fielder
BEN: J. Upton (OF), C. Maybin (OF), N. Cruz (OF)
SP: A.J. Burnett
RP: M. Gonzalez
P: E. Bedard
P: Y. Gallardo
P: Chien-Ming Wang
BN: Kershaw (SP), Carmona (SP), D. Price (NA), M. Scherzer (DL), Hoffman (DL)
DL: Kelvim Escobar
top RP FA:
Hong-Chih Kuo (I'd give up on winning SV's, but great K/9)
S. Downs (closer in Tor. - how long though?)
JJ Putz (low ERA/WHIP - no SV's)
Last year, I won this league w/ only 1 closer (punting SV's category), so I'm not afraid to do it again. Plus any team that carry's a lot of closers, theoretically wont win QS often. So by punting SV's, I'll win QS most of the time.
I don't want to drop any of my young OF due to their breakout potential. I could drop K. Escobar, but it will only cost me a 23rd rd pick to keep him next year (if he comes back on fire). Don't want to drop Kershaw, Scherzer, Price (obviously). Carmona is looking great in ST, as is Wang. Hoffman seems like the best choice if I want to drop a player. IDK. Suggestions?
