I've got 5 RP's, trying to make room for Casilla

Postby Beeblebrox » Wed Apr 18, 2012 2:19 am

I can't cut anyone on my offense, I'm operating without any bench offense players right now.

My pitching is pretty patchwork, since I went with an all-upside rotation....and I really put the "never pay for saves" motto to the test, not drafting a single closer before round 20 and pouncing on every opportunity ever since then.

Moore, Wainwright, Morrow, Beachy, Minor, Garcia, Scherzer, Sale
Marshall, Broxton, F. Francisco, Santiago, Rodney

With 2 RP spots and 4 P spots, I could have up to 6 closers in my active lineup every day, unless I have more than 2 SP I want to play.

If I'm going to pick up Casilla, I'm gonna have to cut one of those guys. Who should it be, or just stay with what I've got?

If I had to pick one of those relievers to drop, it would be Rodney. Since he will likely give up the closer job to Farnsworth once he comes back.

I'd cut Garcia. He'll probably get you some wins just on the sheer offensive weight of his team, but at what cost?

Which Garcia? Freddy or Jamie? Freddy shouldn't be owned. Jamie is too good to drop.

If not Freddy, then I don't see anyone to drop. All those SP should be owned and Casilla is too much of a wild card to drop any of those closers for.

I've got Jamie.

I forgot that Freddy was still in baseball.

This is what I would probably do if I couldn't move one of them first. But the difference isn't that big, IMO. Plus, the simple fact that Casilla is still available is somewhat of a concern. That tells me that the other teams either aren't that active or don't have room themselves. This means that whoever ends up being the flavor of the week once Farnsworth comes back would also likely still be available. I just don't trust Rodney.
