Keep Up To Seven

Postby Element » Wed Mar 09, 2011 11:31 pm

$260, 11 team, 5x5 (OBP instead of runs). We start 23 players (14 hitters (6 OF) & 9 pitchers). There is NOT a bench. Also, we are limited to the number of add/drop moves (DL & ML moves are unlimited). We only get 10. DH's qualify as OF'ers.

I can keep up to 7 of these guys.

I'm leaning toward keeping the top 7 and letting Liriano, Matusz & Davis walk. I'm good with finding cheap pitching. I'm trying to move Liriano, but his lack of early spring numbers are hurting my chances. Votto is an OBP monster. I have him worth $38 entering the season. What does everyone else think?

I like your thoughts, but I have LIriano over Anderson. Otherwise, I am on par with you.

Spring numbers, especially this early, mean nothing. I like Liriano over Anderson, too.

Of course they don't. But with the Twins shopping him, it made some people wonder about his health. Now he has struggled in the early going.

True...Anderson has some health concerns too, though...I just think Liriano has already proven himself, has better ratios and I rank him higher at the moment.

Keep the hitters, and Kershaw and Liriano.
B Anderson is solid, and could be a beast, but he has serious injury concerns and won't net 15+ wins or 200+ Ks. Liriano will probably make both those numbers.

I agree with the above with the exception of dropping Kemp and keeping Anderson. Too much $$ for Kemp.
