Should I Own Any Of These Starters? Waiver Guys WHIR

Postby Rmbxr9 » Mon Mar 26, 2012 1:24 am

Well, I had Madsen... So much for that. I picked up Eduardo Sanchez and Rex Brothers yesterday for Holds and Ks in low innings. Sanchez was optioned to AAA today :(

It's a 16 team league, total points, and we play a messed up way where the Starters only get points for
Wins +12
Losses - 7
K +1
BB -1
CG, SHO are both +7.5

So, an 8 inning 1-0 with 5 Ks is worth the same as someone going 5 and his team winning 12-10. ERA and WHIP are non-factors.

My options
Randy Wolf
J.Collmenter
H.Bailey
Felix Doubrount
B.Arroyo
Henderson Alverez
P.Humber
C.Pavano
D.Duffy
J.Westbrook
J.Blanton

You obviously want guys on good teams, for the Wins. Like Brian Matusz is available, but he's going to lose games on a bad O's team.

I feel like Randy Wolf should be owned in a league that drafted 400 players, and maybe Bailey.

PITCHING AS I TYPE
SP - J.Verlander, D.Haren, C.Bucholtz, J.Hellickson, E.Jackson
RP - J.Axford, B.League, J.Crain, K.Uehara, R.Brothers, E.Sanchez

I'd drop Sanchez or a MI like Jason Bartlett (SS Depth)

Henderson Alvarez has a lot of upside.

Being a Toronto native I have to second this! But also think he is the best option in an unbiased answer
