SP fifth starter help

Postby BigT » Mon Mar 10, 2003 10:10 am

ok i'm playing in a 12 man yahoo H2H league....5x5 roto scoring
there are 16 roster spots on a team with 16 positions to fill, so there is no bench. here is my squad, i was wondering if any of you could give me some advise on who to drop from my fielders and who to pick up as a 5th starter. i'm going to settle for middle of the pack in saves, so i don't really want to pick up another closer. here's my roster
C- Kendall
1B- Olerud
2B- Durham
3B- Glaus
SS- Arod
LF- Shannon Stewart
CF- Abreu
RF- Sheffield
Util- Dye
Bench - Vernon Wells
Sp- Oswalt
Sp- Buehrle
Sp- Clement
Sp- Rueter
RP- Jimenez
Rp- Williamson
P- ?????
DL- Hoffman, Trevor
Available SPs are: Lohse, Sheets, Dan Wright, Moss, Ohka, Ponson, Lilly, Zambrano, Brett Meyers, Mays, and Dreifort to name a few

Any suggestions on how to fill that last spot?? I appreciate it!

I would drop either Dye or Stewart, and pick up Moss or Lilly. In my opinion Dreifort is a stiff. He's had one half of a decent season, and will never put up decent numbers.

Go with Lilly, also if Brad Penny or Tony Armas are available look into them. Want more sleepers, you got it: Kris Benson and Casey Fossum. Those are a few names also Orlando Hernandez should be quality in Mont, but he might be taken.

Ok if those are the best options I would say pick up Ohka and Lilly and drop reuter. Just had to mention Ohka I think he will be a pleasant surprise.

i've been reading alot of good things about lohse, but i liked ohka and his WHIP last year. he was one of my mid season pickups. do you really think he can repeat his performance? or should i take lohse and lilly?

Vernon Wells still isn't truly a proven player, drop him and pick up Zambrano....he is due for a breakout year and should get you a good amount of K's

I'm dropping wells

Postby BigT » Mon Mar 10, 2003 8:21 pm

i don't need another K guy like zambrano...i need someone with a low WHIP...i'm currently claiming lilly off waivers and waiving rueters...i'm thinking of picking up arthur rhodes for his combo of Ws, Saves, and WHIP when i drop wells....what do you think? that would give me a rotation of Oswalt, Buehrle, Clement, Lilly, Jimenez, Williamson, and Big Nasty

I wouldn't drop Wells, I really like vernon's potential I think he is gonna be a big surprise. I really think Ohka will even improve on last years numbers if he learns how to pitch to lefties. He has great control and three quality pitches if your look for whip help go with Ohka and Lilly. Arthur rhodes is good but I think you will be fine with ohka and lilly. Good luck
