How much SP is too much?

Postby ron paul for pres » Wed May 30, 2012 11:34 pm

12 team, H2H, 5x5, non-keeper, Assume that trades are not an option

Roy Oswalt and Trevor Bauer are both available.

I'm sitting in first place right now on the strength of my hitting. I currently have 9 SPs, so the 12 start limit/wk tends to get hit a lot.

C - C Ruiz
1B - Fielder
2B - Kinsler
3B - Miggy
SS - A Cabrera
OF - Hamilton
OF - Bruce
OF - Beltran
DH - A Rod
BN - A Jackson
BN - M Morse
BN - B Butler
BN - M Aviles

SP - Strasburg
SP - A Sanchez
SP - Cueto
SP - Garza
SP - M Moore
SP - J Santana
SP - Dempster
SP - L Lynn
SP - D Hudson
RP - Axford
RP - Putz
RP - Clippard
DL - Storen

Oswalt is not better than anyone else on your SP staff and with the max starts per week, he has little to no value for you.

In a keeper (all your arms) are veyr solid or performing. Bauer I might add for Dempster (despite his solid counting stats) his Ws aren't there and I doubt they'll come much and he will regress a bit as the season goes along.

The hell did you get Fielder Kinsler Miggy and Jham in a 12 team league? All top-20 players in most leagues...

I'd stay where you are with your pitching, looks pretty good.

^ Would you believe I got all those hitters with the auto draft? Got Hamilton in the 5th round.

I get the thoughts on Dempster (and Garza) not getting Ws with the Cubs, but one or both of them could be moved by July to a contender. Is Lynn legit? Would Clippard hold onto his job when Storen comes back?
