Have I done enough? SP help? [AWHIR]

Postby TruYankeeFan » Tue Aug 21, 2012 11:37 am

So, I have been scrambling since Ruiz and Napoli went on DL and Melky got exposed as a cheater.

At the start of this week I had a 7.5 game lead over 2nd place and with two weeks left I have clinched a playoff spot. So I am really only concerned with the playoffs. But decisions that are close I would lean towards a guy with keeper potential.

I managed to land Yadier Molina off waivers and got Salvador Perez a few days earlier off f/a. I think I have done all I can to solidify my offense...and am focusing on pitching.

12 team h2h catgegory w/ (r, rbi, tb, obp, netsb x ip, sv, k, era, whip) daily roster changes and 6 waiver moves a week.

My Roster
C-Y Molina
1B-Prince
2B-Altuve
SS-Jeter
3B-Arod
OF-CarGo
OF-Cespedes
OF-A Craig
UT-S Perez
BN-ARod(DL), B Harper, Plouffe

SP-Kershaw, Maholm, Dempster, Harrison, Zimmermann, Fiers, Buchholz, Shields

RP -Chapman, Axford, Wilhelmson

Right now I am thinking of dropping Fiers for Medlen....What should I do with Dempster and Buchholz? hang on, swap with on from list below? or Stream those spots?

here are the best SP available:
Jon Niese
Kris Medlen
Scott Diamond
Bartolo Colon
Hisashi Iwakuma
Patrick Corban
Mike Minor
Jeremy Guthrie

Leave a link...will hit you back. ;-D

Grab Medlen before somebody else does. Surprising he's still available.

I'd drop Iwakuma or Minor. Understand, I own Minor in a deep mixed league and I'm also a Mariners fan (Iwakuma), but I don't feel like Hisashi's numbers warrant a roster spot on your team, especially for the playoffs. Minor has been better than he was earlier in the season, but is certainly not as good as Medlen.

I like Medlen or Minor over Fiers. I sold him real high, thinking his streak of great games would end sooner rather than later.

Thanks guys...I thought people would feel that way on Medlen...just seemed to obvious. LOL

What about Dempster and Buchholz? I added them to the OP...would you hang on? Stream? pick someone up from that FA list?

Thanks,
