I'm in a Keeper league, 8 players up to 3 yrs. My roster: c Pierzynski 1st year 1b Reynolds 1st year 2b Aaron Hill 1st year ss Bartlett 1st year 3b Longoria middle year mi Zobrist 1st year co Garrett Jones 1st year of Braun last year of Abreu last year of Ellsbury middle year of Ichiro last year ut Ibanez last year Bench: Kouzmanoff 1st year Daniel Murphy 1st year Guzman 1st year Barajas 1st year Prado 1st year Pitching: Jonathan Sanchez 1st year Tim Lincecum last year Josh Johnson last year Justin Verlander 1st year Matt Garza 1st year Johan Santana 1st year John Danks 1st year Heath Bell 1st year Francisco Cordero last year
Bench Dallas Braden 1st year Oliver Perez 1st year Marc Rzepczynski 1st year Matt Palmer 1st year Tim Hudson 1st year Tommy Hunter 1st year
I have 2 pickups left for the end of the year, and can't make any moves after August 31. Should I pick up:
John Smoltz Anibel Sanchez Leo Nunez Mike Macdougal
I want to get rid of Matt Palmer and Oliver Perez, who should I get?
is Nunez gonna keep the closer role? Is smoltz good again back in NL? Is Sanchez healthy and gonna stay strong? will the Nationals win enough games to justify Macdougal?
It looks like you hava good SP and could add RP depth. I really like quantitiy over quality in RP becasue you always have to overpay for elite RP and dont get too much more out of them. I'd grab MacD and Nunez...with the knowledge that Nunez may get bumped out the clser role soon. Keep an eye open and look for another cheap guy who can get you a few saves.
As a Nittany Lion living in Sunny South Florida I say pick up Anibal and McDougal! Sanchez is in a groove!! Lindstrom is back and Nunez has not looked great recently...its uncertain in all of these cases but Sanchez is looking the best right now!
All 4 are better than what you have. What place are you in? are you looking for just this year or potential keepers. I don't think any of them are keepers, though Sanchez is the closest thing to a keeper of the bunch. If your looking at just this year I would grab Nunez and Mac...
