Frustrated! Thinking about going with all closers, thoughts?

Postby Skpirate » Sun Apr 22, 2012 12:13 am

Hey everyone, this is my first time playing fbb and I'm a little frustrated with my team. Coming out of the draft I was very happy with my team, but I've been bouncing between 10th and 8th place. It is a ten team 5x5 mixed roto league. I've made a couple of trades and some waiver moves and this is how my team currently looks:

C Santana
1B Morales
2B Zobbrist
3B Bautista
SS Hanley Ramirez
CI Morneau
MI Kendrick
OF Cargo
OF Franceour
OF Bourne
OF Delmon Young
OF Cespedes
Util Moustakas
Bench Jason Bay
DL Carl Crawford

Pitchers:
Kershaw
U. Jimenez
Josh Johnson
Darkish
Morrow
Santana
Peavy
Buchholz (just dropped and picked up Chapman)
Mariano Rivera
Kimbrel
Nathan

I'm thinking about trading away my SP for batting help and going with all Closers. I have a good base with who I have already, thoughts on this strategy? Or do you think I should just stick it out? Look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts.

Why would you want to go all closers? What pitching categories are in this league?

Definitely should stick it out though, the season is very young and I like most of your lineup as is. In a couple weeks, I'm willing to bet you'll start climbing up to 7th, 6th, 5th, maybe even higher. You won't truly know what you need most until you get a month or so sample size.

Wins, Ks, Saves, WHIP, ERA
if I can trade my starters for a mixture of relievers and upgrade my batters I think I can have better luck. I would suck at wins and strike outs but I should dominate the other three categories while improving my batting stats.

Stick it out longer. The season is still young. Some players haven't found their stride yet. Your team is definitely capable of climbing in the standings and likely will. You may want to look at a small upgrade in the OF in the meantime. I'm not a big fan of Francouer or Bay.
