Damn... as a Webb+Peavy owner, I was counting on Ervin Santana to be productive.

Yes, took them back to back in rounds 3 and 4. Don't worry it's not your basic 5x5 league.

It's a 11-team points league where you only allowed to own 5 starting pitchers but there are spots for 5 hitters on the bench. The setup is supposed to simulate the roster of real major league team (minus setup men and middle relievers). While other owners usually draft hitters early, I try to stock up on ace pitchers and then put together hitting platoons late in the draft to fully utilize the 5 bench spots for hitters (we do daily lineups). I've found that such platoons often come close to scoring as many points in this league as all but the best individual hitters. Although I did take Jose Reyes with 1st Round pick because middle infield platoons eat bench spots... !+)

Thankfully I still have Haren, Vazquez, Josh Johnson, and Garza. When I noticed Ervin Santana had been dropped and before Peavy went down, I traded Johan Santana for Ian Kinsler (I couldn't re-craft my 2B platoon after Rickie Weeks was lost for the season).

I don't know where my team would be without Joe Mauer and Heath Bell. Remarkably still in good position to win some money thanks to platoons at OF, 1B, and UT.

I can't decide what to do keep him or let him go. I could use another pitcher who's going to start this week.
