First base is killing me...

Postby bazzy_51 » Thu May 26, 2011 10:53 pm

Ok so this is a huge league, been around for this being it's 16th year, I've made a few moves already, but still need some tweaking. It's an 18 team h2h points based league that you have 5 matchups a week. Starts the normal 1b, 2b, ss, 3b, of, of, of, util... sp, sp, sp, sp, sp, rp. BUT there are roster spot restrictions, the player has to have played at least 20% of his games at that position to be able to be started there.

Scoring - it's very complicated and long, both positive and negative points, I'll list the bigger stats.. 1B=1pt, 2b=2pt, 3b=3pt, Run, Walk, RBI, HBP=1pt, HR=7pt, SB=1.5pt, CS=-1pt... 1IP=1pt, K=1pt, BB and ER=-1pt, Wins and Saves=7pt, big stats are CG=7pt, SHO=10, No Hitter=20pt

***Keeper league, we keep 5 players of any choosing with no draft or position restrictions year to year***

Trade offered to me:
I Give - Ricky Nolasco
I Get- Brett Wallace

My Team:
C- Miguel Montero
1B- Casey Kotchman
2B- Darwin Barney
3B- Mike Aviles
SS- Derek Jeter
OF- Jay Bruce
OF- Carl Crawford
OF- Denard Span
U- Adam Dunn
BN- Gordon Beckham, Rajai Davis... No DL slots but DLed players- David Wright, Ryan Zimmerman, Adam LaRoche

SP- Cliff Lee
SP- Trevor Cahill
SP- CJ Wilson
SP- Ricky Nolasco
SP- Wade Davis
RP- Francisco Rodriguez
BN- Jake Westbrook... Again DLed players with no DL slots- Matt Garza and Brian Matusz

I really need help at 1B because even if Dunn somehow turns it around at the pace hes on he won't be eligible at 1B for me. So basically I have to rely on LaRoche (who I thought was in for a big year, blahhhh) and Kotchman now that he's on the shelf. I believe I have enough arms to take a hit, but I don't know if Wallace is enough for Nolasco. This guy also has Adrian Gonzalez and Eric Hosmer at 1B. Do I counter with something, just roll with what I have or go searching elsewhere.

Best 1B on the wire: Juan Rivera (until Lind comes back), Daniel Murphy (until Ike comes back) or Ty Wigginton. I know terrible.

18-team league, everyone tries to have backups at each position, so when I say the best available to play first (given our 20% played at rule) is between Kotchman, Rivera, Murphy and Wigginton. Heck Freddy Freeman was taken in the 10th round of the draft this year (18rounds total).

Should I counter for Hosmer? Hosmer for Nolasco, or Hosmer for Cahill?

No, I couldn't get to the computer until this evening and he was scooped up right after the word of Posey's injury.

I'd do Hosmer over Wallace. What about packaging a low bat and Nolasco for like Lee or something not an elite 1B like Tex or Agon but an above average guy

Wow didn't even realize this, this guy has 4 1B options...

Adrian Gonzalez - I'm not even gonna try to go after him, he'll want WAY too much
Eric Hosmer
Brett Wallace
Billy Butler

Butler is very interesting to me, I totally overlooked him. Nolasco for Butler worth it? I have a feeling this guy will look at total points on the year, so would it benefit me more to try to get Butler with Cahill or Nolasco?

Scratch that last post... With Hosmer up I forgot Butler has been DHing most all games, so he is going to be running out of eligibility soon.

So back to what arm should I give up to get either Wallace or Hosmer?
