Oswalt and Pettitte worth roster spots? WHIR

Postby ron paul for pres » Tue Mar 20, 2012 10:43 pm

I'm in a 12 team H2H 5X5 league. My pitching could use some help, and I'm not sure if either Oswalt or Pettitte deserve spots. Pettitte won't pitch until May (and he's old) and there's no telling when Oswalt will pitch (if at all).

Options include Worley, Santana, Buerhle, Liriano, Cahill and Voglesong. So are two of the Braves' young arms Tehran and Delgado.

C - Soto
1B - M Cabrera
2B - Kinsler
3B - ARod
SS - A Cabrera
OF - Bruce
OF - J Hamilton
OF - Beltran
DH
BN - P Fielder
BN - L Morrison
BN - Mark Reynolds
BN - Alexei Ramirez
BN - R Raburn

(As soon as Miguel gets 3B eligibility, I'm sliding him there, Fielder to 1B and ARod to the bench. I'm counting on one of those guys or Raburn to get DH eligibility at some point.)

SP - T Hanson
SP - A Sanchez
SP - T Stauffer
SP - R Dempster
SP - J Chacin
SP - Oswalt
SP - Pettitte
RP - D Soren
RP - JJ Putz
RP - G Balfour
RP - M Melancon
RP - K Uehara

League is set up for 5 SPs and 7 RPs. But my starting pitching was so weak that I'm leaving two RP starting spots open and rotating the starters.

I'd give Worley, Santana, or Liriano a shot. I don't think Pettitte or Oswalt are really rosterable in a 12 teamer, at least until Oswalt is actually pitching.

awesome username btw.

I dropped Pettitte and added Worley. Do you guys really have that much confidence in Santana? The surgery and the fact that he plays for the Mets are two pretty big red flags for me.

Use Arod at DH he's your best option after Mcab gains eligibility. He has been a DH enough that you should get to use him there.
