Need Pitching Help

Need Pitching Help

Postby funkenick » Tue Apr 24, 2012 12:51 am

Hi, this is my first year of fantasy baseball and I have a quite a few players on the DL and I was wondering what I should do. 12 team 6x6 H2H league. Here's my team. Last week I won when I reached 41 innings on Sunday and I don't want that problem again.

C Mike Napoli, Tex C
1B Albert Pujols, LAA 1B
2B Ben Zobrist, TB 2B
3B Aramis Ramirez, Mil 3B
SS Alexei Ramirez, CWS SS
OF Matt Holliday, StL LF
OF Nick Swisher, NYY RF
OF Matt Joyce, TB RF
UTIL Jason Kubel, Ari RF
P Josh Beckett, Bos SP
P Kyle Lohse, StL SP
P Bartolo Colon, Oak SP
SP Cliff Lee*, Phi SP
SP Jeremy Hellickson, TB SP
RP Aroldis Chapman, Cin RP
RP Tyler Clippard, Wsh RP
Lance Berkman*, StL 1B
Kyle Farnsworth*, TB RP
Ryan Howard*, Phi 1B
Daniel Murphy, NYM 2B
Zack Cozart, Cin SS
Nolan Reimold, Bal LF
Doug Fister*, Det SP

Also one of the other teams has Tim Linecum on the trading block and I wanted to know if he is worth trading for or should I just drop someone and pick up an available pitcher? Any help would be appreciated I also had Carpenter and Storen and dropped them because 7 players on the DL seemed like too many.

Are you saying you have to reach 41 IP each week? If so you could be in some serious trouble with all of your players on the DL.

I would trade for Lincecum, he is pitching a little better each start, and he is still striking people out.

7 players on the DL is quite a lot lol.

I'm not completely sure I answered all of your questions, so if I did not, please let me know.

I have to reach 40 IP minimum to win ERA, WHIP and Losses. I reached only 41 last week. What is Linecum worth?
