Can you help me pick a relief pitcher WHIR

Postby birdbrains » Tue Feb 22, 2011 9:42 pm

Well I have 4 picks leaft as I took most of my picks early....and 1 of the 4 needs to be a catcher...the other 3 should be pitchers but am not really sure if I should grab a 6th starter. My rotation is decent for an 18 team league but there are a few SP's out there I could grab
Heree is a list of some rp/s and a few SP's

Can you suggest at least one and or a stragegy...6th starter or not
as HOLDS is a category in this league and I do have 2

I like Neise form the Mets and also like Benoit as a RP
Quality starts is a category this year and not sure how that works

atters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Batting Average (AVG), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS)

I would grab Dotel. He's not great, but he's a closer.
Clippard was great at holds last year.
Fuentes should get holds.
Motte should too, and could be the closer soon.
League will close, once Aardsma gets moved this year.
Walden could take Rodneys spot soon.
Ogando could close if Feliz starts.
Hensley will push Nunez as closer.

For a SP, Holland or Bailey have the most upside.

Take Dotel, 2 hold guys from above, and your C.
