Getting a Head Start - Keep 10

Postby stlcards02 » Wed Dec 12, 2012 3:54 pm

20-team, 10 keeper. It's a pts league. Offensive scoring focuses on power over speed, and pitching is pretty standard with wins. With RP though we have to start 3, so closers are at a premium with so many teams, also with holds not being a cat. 9 starts limit per week is about the only restrictions. I have a pretty good idea on most, just wanted some second opinions before trading starts back up. Thanks guys!

I am really only keeping RP because you said it was a premium. I wouldn't have a problem letting Pastano go and keeping Perez or Harvey. Personally I wouldn't keep any MiLB players because you don't know when they will get the call and it doesn't help you win now if you are burning keeper spots on guys that aren't helping you.

It's hard to not keep Meyers, but if closers really are the premium I would cut him loose for Reed. I would not however toss Harvey back for a relief arm. I can't justify keeping Espinosa over Goldy either. He's good.

I know Reddick had a great year but went Espinosa over him for the position and thinking reddick will regress. Certainly though I could see the case if you believed. Id want some assurance on Reed's serving as the closer for sure (white sox have made some surprising designation choices recently so just be safe)

Thoughts?:

That is a sick pitching staff for a 20 teamer. Sheez at that young ptiching you have stockpiled and you gotta throw it back 8-o
