Any tweaks worth making before the playoffs? - WHIR

Postby Bolthead04 » Sat Sep 03, 2011 6:22 pm

My team has done incredible in recent months, and I don't see any major changes that are needed, but I'm wondering if anyone thinks these moves would be improvements on my team.

I very much like Kubel, Garcia, and an extra closer in Parnell. Hosmer and Vazquez have also done very well as of late. I could picture dropping Leukbe or Latos for Parnell (once Strasburg is back) and adding Kubel for Pagan. With 2 of my OF injured, I hesitate to pick up a non-OF player for UTIL.

WHIR as always, and I appreciate your thoughts!

The FA's I am looking at are...

    Batters
  • Lucas Duda
  • Jason Kubel
  • Edwin Encarnacion
  • Eric Hosmer
    Pitchers
  • Ted Lilly
  • Javier Vazquez
  • Derek Holland
  • Freddy Garcia
  • Doug Fister
  • Gavin Floyd
  • Bobby Parnell

Here's my team.

You have a pretty good roster, as far as your batting it can go either way right now (mainly due to injuries especially pending on what happens with Asdrubel Cabrera) I would think about adding Duda and dropping either Pagan or Bourjos. Kubel has his spurts and he seems to be in one right now but Duda seems to be more consistent currently. The thing you need to do is watch when Quentin and Rasmus come back and how they fair and hope that Beltran finally has woken up. Pitching I would go ahead and pick up Freddy Garcia and drop Cory Luebke, I think you are pretty good on closers just between Axford and Cordero with Nathan getting his every so often. If you can't get Garcia then I would grab Fister.

Well, I'm thinking since Strasburg is coming back, I don't need to replace Leukbe with a pitcher... I could add a bat instead, and add another pitcher when Bourjos cools off or perhaps someone on the DL is done for the season.

I'm dropping Leukbe tonight I believe, although I'm still not solid on who his replacement will be.
