If you could have any 5 SP....

Postby Izenhart » Sun Apr 01, 2012 4:36 pm

If you were told that you could have any 5 starting pitchers for your fantasy team in 5x5 roto, and you wanted to dominate every category as much as possible, but the catch is you can only have 1 from the top tier of:

Kershaw, Verlander, Sabathia, Lee, Halladay

Which one of those 5 above would you pick and who would your next 4 pitchers be?

Not sure Sabathia really belongs in that group.

Felix
Lincecum
Greinke
Price

Then i have about 4 guys I value exactly the same that is Haren, Hamels, Weaver and Gallardo. I'm not sure given your stipulations that I'd want Felix and Lincecum both though since they might both struggle for wins.

I'm shying away from Felix for the same reasons, and Lincecum may carry a heafty whip as well.

Verlander
Felix
Hamels
Price
Lester

Lincecum honorable mention..just wanted more wins. Individually I'd obv go with Lince.


PS Jered Weaver sucks and should not be drafted by any astute Cafeholics
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

Good team, good defense, good enough K rate. He'll end the year as a top 15 starter pretty easily. Kind of like Haren he'll do it in a pretty boring fashion though instead of being all Ks like guys who people seem to prefer. Also you can't pick Verlander.

You are crazy. Jered Weaver is the man. And the fact that the outfield defense behind him is great helps him immensely.
