Last Minute Weekly Playoff FA Adds/Lineup- 2B/of/sp/rp

Postby TheJordanRulz » Mon Sep 03, 2012 11:29 am

Weekly lineups, 5x5 H2H

1st week of the playoffs against a team that's been hot lately. Please give me some advice and I'd be happy to return the favor. Some good options out there. My team at the top with available FAs listed below my bench players. I'm a little worried about how my starting pitching will stack up and am behind 1 game started with ESPN's #1 pitcher this week Cueto on my opponent's team.

Biggest questions - Start which 2B? Sit any of my OFs and for who? Change up SPs? Start which RPs and maybe start 3 of them?

See below for more info on the match up. Thanks! WHIR!

Thanks for helping on mine....


I think I'd stick with Zobrist over Kipnis.

I'd be tempted to go with Greg Holland over Derek Holland.
