State of the BallClub? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Thu Apr 26, 2012 1:43 pm

I'm wondering if you can assess the state of the roster below.

I will have an open roster spot tomorrow and can use it on a mediocre closer (Cordero, Casilla), quality RP (Addison Reed, Jonny Venters), middle infield backup (could put a claim on Jemile Weeks), or SP (I could grab Andy Pettitte now, who will return May 10).

Thoughts on the current roster and what to do with that open spot?

12 Team H2H Daily with 6 Keepers Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means a keeper entering this season
Stat Categories: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

pick up cordero, you could use saves and i have a feeling santos is going to come back and set up for cordero.

i would also drop parker, young or span for casilla and get another guy that will get you some saves. with montero getting C eligibility i would shop avila around and see what you can get for him, im sure someone is willing to give up a better bat in an OF for a solid hitting catcher.

Brandon Belt is available. Seems to be getting playing time with Huff on the DL. Thoughts?

With that team, why even bother? He isn't better then anybody you already have on your roster.


I would grab both them closers and drop Chapman. Not like your league counts Holds.

whats your reasoning to drop chapman? 11.1 ip, 2-0, 20ks, 0.00era, 0.53whip that is better value then 50% of SP on rosters.

Also its a H2H league. We're in match-up 3 for the year. If 3.2 innings of perfect ball or even 6 Ks makes or breaks your week then you got bigger problems imo.
