This league is an 18 team 5x5 roto. For the final four weeks of the season, it reverts to a 5x5 head to head for a 4 team playoff. The playoffs start today, and I am the two seed. I am a little worried about two of my starting pitchers. Chris Capuano just hasn't been all that good lately, and Chris Tillman left yesterday's game with an elbow injury.
Here are the best starters that are available in our league's free agent pool:
Today is our weekly transaction day. We submit sealed bids for free agents to our league commissioner. I have $7 remaining in my free agent budget.
I am not sure if Zach Britton is available today. He was optioned to triple A after his last start. He is expected to be recalled in time for his next start, but he isn't on the major league roster today. I'll have to email the league commissioner to see if he is available.
Right now, I am inclined to drop both Capuano and Tillman, making Happ and Kendrick my top two priorities for replacement, but I am interested in seeing what others think.
I've also got Shaun Marcum in my reserves, but I'm not sure I'm ready to activate him. He is scheduled for two starts on the road this week, against the Marlins and Cardinals.
WHIR, please leave a link. I'll be monitoring the forum throughout the day.
