New To Fantasy Baseball

Postby obeythescribe » Thu Apr 04, 2013 1:38 am

This is my first season playing any kind of fantasy sports. Although I'm a bit of a sports nut, but not skilled in fantasy sports (yet). I would appreciate any feedbacks. I'm playing in a 12 teams league, H2H Categories (8 Hitting, 7 Pitching) with weekly matchups.

Scoring Categories
Hitting - R, 2B, HR, RBI, BB, K, SB, AVG.
Pitching - BB*, K, W, L*, SV, ERA*, WHIP* (*Minimum 50 IP)

Batters
C - Willin Rosario
1B - Edwin Encarnacion
2B - Jason Kipnis
3B - Miguel Cabrera
SS - Jimmy Rollins
OF - Justin Upton
OF - Carlos Gonzalez
OF - Alex Rios
UTIL - Freddie Freeman
Bench - David Wright (3B)
Bench - Michael Bourn (OF)
Bench - Angel Pagan (OF)

Pitchers
P - Brandon McCarthy
SP - Madison Bumgarner
SP - R.A. Dickey
SP - Mat Latos
SP - Brandon Marrow
SP - Jonathan Niese
SP - Tommy Milone
RP - Joe Nathan
RP - Chris Perez

I'm thinking about letting one of my OF go to pick up a back up 2B/SS. Not sure how sold I am on McCarthy & Milone as SP's.

I hope you mean "TRADING" them, not DROPPING them...
Also, I share your concerns about McCarthy and Milone. But you drafted them late, so you can drop them if someone better comes along. Ryu looked good and might be available; and I think Teheran is promising and generally available.
The rest of your team certainly looks good!

Yeah I meant trading. I think I'm going to ride it out with my current OF group, and see if there's potential trades down the road.

Yes, McCarthy/Milone were late pick-ups. Homer Bailey's available as well, somebody drafted him then dropped him although I can't figure out why.

Thanks for the feedback.

Im really liking Wright though. I think he is going to have a great year this year. That is if he can stay healthy.
