Waiver wire Keeper help, H2H -10 team plz rate/rip

Postby JoshuaHavok » Tue Apr 10, 2012 10:29 am

I've had my eyes on the waiver wire and slept through the pick-ups of C. Sale, and thanked god I didn't rush to pay/grab any closers. Since we are a 10-team league, there are plenty of options on the waiver wire, and I know its early, but I figured I'd let you guys see my team and tell me what you think. I have an empty RP spot, but I have a full team, so to pick anybody up I would have to drop somebody. This is a very competitive league and most managers are on the wire daily.

I've been looking at a couple players in particular, but to pick these guys up I'd have to drop. Most my pitchers have gone through one game so far (haven't done that well either) but I told myself I would wait till may to properly judge their worth. (but should I wait?)

10 team Head-to-head KEEPER league with 9 hit stats(R, H,HR, RBI,SB,BB, AVG,OPS, XBH) & 8 pitch stats (W, CG, SV, K, GIDP, ERA, WHIP, QS). We are allowed 30 moves through the year and 2 DL spots

Waiver wire: H - C. Pena, C Figgins, A. Laroche, R. Furcal, Z. Cozart, M. Aviles, J. Smoak, D. Young, E. Encarnation, J. Altuve, A. Pagan, M. Aviles, J. Mayberry

P - J. Samardzija, L. Lynn, E. Bedard, J. Niese, D. Bard, G. Floyd, A. Ogando, T. Stauffer, G. Holland,

This is my team:
C - Joe Mauer
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Jason Kipnis
3B - David Wright
SS - Jimmy Rollins
CI - Pablo Sandoval
MI - Daniel Murphy
LF - Ryan Braun
CF - Andrew McCutchen
RF - Jay Bruce
Util- Micheal Bourn
DL - Chase Utley
SP - Dan Haren
SP - Max Scherzer
SP - Brandon Beachy
RP - Craig Kimbrel
RP - Matt Thornton
RP -
P - Cory Luebke
BN - Anibal Sanchez
BN - Jhoulys Chacin
BN - Hiroki Kuroda
BN - Wandy Rodriguez
BN - Vance Worley

Samardjiza and Bedard could be nice shots to see if they got it.

Does Luebke qualify at RP?

Do Samardjiza and Bard? If so, that's a way to get extra starts.

I like Samardzija and Ogando.

Ogando moved to SP last year and is back as RP this year. He started off great last year but died off after the break. Should be a solid RP.

Smardzija was promoted to SP, he had a good spring but the jury is still out. I like him to go the distance and have decent year.

Well here is what I am currently debating.

You might be able to get a good trade for Kimbrel, which is what I am currently debating.

I don't think you do anything right now. You have a good team and I am not sure who you would drop. I do like Bedard and Neise. It is a matter of preference. I like Mike Minor, but he stunk it up with his 1st start. I still like him better than Bedard and Neise for now.

I guess I should drop Matt Thronton as he is no help to me since he lost the closers role anyway,

So in order, Samardzija, Bedard, Niese ? I do really like Bedard, and he did pitch well his first outing

Anyone else? I'm in talks right now to trade away possibly Haren, Wright, and a third guy for Grienke, Beltran and a third, any comments?

Since you can make only 30 moves, i would take Niese over Kuroda.
Chacin needs to quit walking guys.
Watch Samardzija and D Young.
