What SP to add, who to drop??

Postby Jase44 » Tue Aug 21, 2012 8:33 am

Hey Fellas,

10 Team Roto Keeper league. We keep 10

My Team:
C - Posey
1 - Konerko
2 - Kipnis
3 - Sandoval
SS - Rollins
OF - Trout, Heyward, Beltran, Pence, Markakis
Util - Any BN
BN - Perez, Walker, ARam, Machado,

SP: Price, Sabathia, Moore, Wilson, Parker, Lynn, McDonald, Medlen
RP: Aceves, Rodney, Chapman

I think I'll need to add/stream a SP for the rest of the season to get my innings up. I am leading the league and trailing a bit in W so I can make some ground up there.

I need to either drop a position player or I was thinking Aceves. I am in the lead in Saves by 20 because I have been able to slot Aceves in as a SP and pretty much role 3 RP all year with only two RP slots. Plus he might lose his job to Bailey soon.

Think 20 SV's is a comfortable enough lead to drop him or is there a position player I should drop? and who? Might also try to trade some young keeper talent to a last place for a solid SP. Maybe a Machado and Perez for Dickey or something.

Let me know WHIR!

Has your trade deadline passed? If it has, I'd probably drop Aramis Ramirez. He'll be 35 next year and I don't think he'll have much value for you next year. I'd also consider dropping Machado. It looks like you aren't spending too much time on prospects on your roster, and it's not guaranteed he'll be on the O's roster to start next year.

Why not attempt to trade Aceves? Like you said, SP eligibility when you have only 2 RP spots is gold. Depending on your keeper rules, dealing Machado and Parker to a keeper needy team for a SP upgrade could be worth a look also.
