Gearing up for Playoffs! WHIR!!

Postby Conrax » Sat Sep 03, 2011 5:52 pm

I will either be the #3 or #4 in a 8 team playoffs. H2H Categories which will simply turn to most categories. I will reply just leave link.

The categories:
Batting: R, HR, RB, SB, AVG
Pitching: K, W, L, ERA, WHIP, SV/HD

Here are the free agents out of there (my main thing is I need some offense mainly because Youk, Beltre, Rasmus and Kipnis have been or still are on the DL, glad I have Youk and Beltre back). Are any worth picking up and who should I drop to pick them up? My current thoughts is pick up Duda and drop Kubel and then dropping Frank Fransisco for Vinnie Pestano because Fransisco really doesn't get that many holds as Pestano does. Thoughts good, bad, you have something better?

Batting:
Austin Jackson, Det OF
Lucas Duda, NYM OF, 1B
Russell Martin, NYY C
Alejandro De Aza, CWS OF
John Mayberry Jr., Phi OF
Dayan Viciedo, CWS 3B

Pitching: (just picked Fister, ptiching has been fine of course havn't been getting save but have gotten plenty of holds which counts for the same category)
Javier Vazquez, Fla SP
Brandon McCarthy, Oak SP
Guillermo Moscoso, Oak RP, SP
Vinnie Pestano, Cle RP (Hold guy)
Rex Brothers, Col RP (Hold guy)

Actual Roster:
C Miguel Montero, Ari C
1B Carlos Pena, ChC 1B
2B Orlando Hudson, SD 2B
3B Adrian Beltre, Tex 3B
SS Starlin Castro, ChC SS
OF Ryan Roberts, Ari OF, 2B, 3B
OF Jason Kubel, Min OF, DH
OF Juan Pierre, CWS OF
UTIL Kevin Youkilis, Bos 1B, 3B
Bench Colby Rasmus*, Tor OF DL15
Bench Asdrubal Cabrera, Cle SS
Bench Ben Zobrist, TB 2B, OF
DL Jason Kipnis*, Cle 2B

P Jon Lester, Bos SP
P Hiroki Kuroda, LAD SP
P Doug Fister, Det SP
SP Kyle Lohse, StL SP
SP Colby Lewis, Tex SP
RP Frank Francisco, Tor RP
RP Joaquin Benoit, Det RP
RP Greg Holland, KC RP
Bench Jair Jurrjens, Atl SP
Bench Ryan Vogelsong, SF RP, SP
DL Brett Anderson*, Oak SP DL60

Thanks for the help with mine! I would drop Ryan Roberts for Austin Jackson or Duda depending on need (Jackson for Rs, SBs and Duda for RBIs nd the occasional HR) and also drop Kyle Lohse for either McCarthy or Vazquez (if you need Ks, go with Vazquez..keep in mind McCarthy has some tough matchups ahead of him - TEX a couple times). If Pestano gives you the same value as Francisco, even though Francisco is getting the saves now in TOR, then add him cuz he is the better pitcher overall. Hope this helps, good luck! ;-D

Thanks for the help on mine!

I would definitely go to add Vazquez. He has done very well since the break. Who you would drop? I would lean to Voglesong. Really though, pick whichever pitcher you feel has the least to give you. It's a gut call in my opinion.

Martin may also be worth picking up. His cat potential is very good given the lineup.

You've got a tough wire, so feel free to ride streaks whenever you can.
