Going into this week I have a 10.5 game lead over the rest of the league, and 4 weeks left before the playoffs. I want to set myself up for the Championship run....as well as make a few shrewd pickups as we are shifting to a keeper league next year.
I have held on as long as possible...hoping Axford would get back to last years form. The only think keeping him from ruining my ERA and WHIP is the fact his innings are such a small part of my rotation...but when he puts up a 9.50+ ERA over the last 14 days and a 6.5+ ERA for the season...I wonder if it is time to bail...especially since Janssen is available. I could also pick up Henderson who is splitting closing duties in MIL with Axford and seems to be poised to take it over all together.
And what about James McDonald....I want to believe this is just a bump in the road...but since the AS break he has been horrendous. How long to I hang onto him?
Best pitchers available...
Best hitters available....
UPDATED:Machado is gone since I posted this...also...Marco Scutaro and Todd Frazier are available (hot over the last 30 days and both qualify for 3 or more positions.
I am leaning towards dropping Axford for Janssen or Ogando...and dropping McDonald for Minor, Buchholz or Gonzalez.
BN-, Cespedes, ARod(DL), Ruiz(DL)
SP-Kershaw, J McDonald, Dempster, Harrison, Zimmermann, Fiers, Hughes, Shields
RP -Chapman, Axford, Wilhelmson
