Please rate my pitching strategy? WHIR

Postby MaxMan715 » Tue Mar 13, 2012 6:44 pm

Hey guys,

After my draft, I noticed that even though I have some solid starting pitchers, I feel that the area is lacking somewhat. So, I thought of a way to pretty much guarantee a win in both Saves/Holds every week. First off, here are my pitchers and league position format:

My league has:

SP
SP
SP
RP
RP
RP
P
P

SPs:
Lester
Wainwright
Hanson
Kuroda
Masterson
Billingsley
E Jackson

RPs:
Bell(CL)
Capps(CL)
Nathan(CL)
Holland(HLDS)
Bastardo(HLDS)

Now, I am seriously thinking about dropping one of my low-end starters for a pitcher that has both SP/RP eligibility and will accumulate HOLDS. This way, I can plug that pitcher into the SP position almost daily (since the chances of starting 3 SPs everyday is pretty slim anyway). I feel like this would be the best way for my team to take advantage of the 3rd SP slot on most days.

Please give me some feedback about this idea and if you agree with it, who should I drop?

Don't ever try to punt a category. Work the waivers at the beginning of the season and try to find that lighting in a bottle AKA this years Ogando and Pineda.

Well I wouldn't be punting anything really, I'd just be dropping my 7th starter for another reliever.
