Which pitcher in a 5x5 Roto keeper?

Postby SecretAgentMan » Sun Jan 30, 2011 12:29 am

In a deep 5x5 Roto keeper (round 22). Looking for a reserve pitcher to compliment my staff of Halladay, Weaver, Hanson, Danks, CJ Wilson and R. Romero. Who would you pick among this lot:

DeLaRosa
T. Wood
E. Santana
Cueto
Lackey
Jurrgens
Peavy
Braden
A. Sanchez
Pavano
Tommy Hunter

I like Lackey this year. I think he will rebound after a pretty bad year last year.

After that I like Santana or De La Rosa. Niether one is going to be amazing but both should be nice for spot starts or to fill in for an injury.

I like Jorge de la Rosa.
The K's are there, almost a full K per 9 more than anyone else on this list. Even with the BB/9 rate north of 4 and HR/9 above 1, he's been able to keep his ERA around a low four. If he can make and hold a gain by giving up less free passes or keeping the ball in Coor's more, then he'll be very ownable this year. Big IF's I know, but that's the point of the late rounds and the upside is pretty good.

Yup, I'd go with DLR too. If not, I still like Ervin Santana even if the K upside wasn't there, but he still put up a respectable walk rate and WHIP.

My choices would be de La Rosa, Lackey and Jurrgens, in that order. I think de La Rosa is underrated, and I believe Lackey is in for a strong bounce back.

Could you give me some help on this choice?
