As a thought, you want people who pitch on teams where they can pick up a poor starter (the Brewers spring to mind - all bats and no starters). I think I'd be more inclined to try and get a starter on a team that might give him run support - that seems like it's been your problem this year, and then spot the 6 starters so that you don't necessarily have to pitch them when they have nasty matchups.
Thanks for the reply. Clippard is gone in this league - and he's fallen into the toilet anyway. League is a definite thought, and I may eventually go to him.
Really want someone with that SP eligibility, though, so I can keep my five closers in the lineup. Saves are a REALLY competitive category in this league!
Your idea about having the six starters and going more on a spot basis is intriguing. I might wanna try that closer to the end of the year - right now I really want to score some cheap wins with as few innings as possible!
