Pitching Staff Help

Postby heathweston » Thu Jul 05, 2012 8:54 am

10 Team H2H Keeper League, 6x6

My pitching has been underwhelming so far this season, with a lot of my hurlers struggling and under performing. It's gotten to the point where I'm pretty much looking at losing Wins and K's each week, with SVs usually being a lock, HLD's being non existent, and WHIP/ERA being up in the air. Is there anything I should do to maybe right that ship? I've been hesitant because I'm in first, and have only lost 2 or 3 meeting this year so far (ahead by 15 games).

Do I just sit tight with it and wait it out and hope it turns around?

I've got a possible deal out there to acquire Adam Wainwright, but here are some FA options.

SP: Jose Quintana, Travis Wood, Carlos Villaneuva, Travis Blackley, Dillon Gee, Bartolo Colon, Marco Estrada, Edison Volquez, Jake Westbrook, Chris Tillman, Mike Leake, Jair Jurrjens, Danny Hultzen (possible stash for later)
Andrew Miller, James Russell, Clay Hensley, Tom Gorzelanny are available as SP with HLDs potential.
RP: Glen Perkins, Brandon League, Jared Burton, Bobby Parnell, Pedro Strop, Sean Burnett, Matt Belisle

Nothing that's exactly awe inspiring.

Also, with Votto ailing, should I look to add a 1B just in case? Freddie Freeman, Garrett Jones, Tyler Colvin and Adam LaRoche are available.

Any help is appreciated.

Here's my team:

C Buster Posey
1B Joey Votto
2B Jose Altuve
3B Brett Lawrie
SS Starlin Castro
OF Carlos Gonzalez
OF Mike Trout
OF Giancarlo Stanton
Util Ryan Zimmerman
Util Josh Reddick
Bench Desmond Jennings
Bench Rickie Weeks
DL Carl Crawford

SP Tim Lincecum
SP Jon Lester
SP Chris Capuano
RP Jim Johnson
RP Fernando Rodney
P Huston Street
P Santiago Casilla
P Chris Perez
Bench Tom Wilhelmsen
Bench Matt Moore
Bench Matt Garza
Bench Anibal Sanchez
Bench Clayton Richard
DL Shaun Marcum
DL Matt Capps

Thanks! WHIR

Guys I would use as matchup plays (in order): Tillman, Volquez, Villaneuva, Gee, Colon.

Wainwright is a solid trade target depending on who you have to give up.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

You've got a solid pitching staff...they just haven't been pitching well so far. I would anticipate they will do better in the second half.
I'd also recommend solid streamer pitching help will help you better in the short term.
Examples: Gee, Jarrod Parker, Morales, Hochevar, Niese

I forgot to mention that we only have 6 moves a week, so streaming might not be the best option since I'd be burning up my moves.

The Wainwright deal, right now, is centered around me giving up Desmond Jennings and Huston Street. I don't know if it's a 2-for-1 or if I am getting a second player back with Wainwright. Jennings became expendable when Mike Trout got the call and ran with it.

So the deal is on the table:

Wainwright
for
Jennings/Street

I'm giving up Jennings/Street. Should I look to get something thrown in?
