Waiver questions (Cashner / Betancourt)

Postby j_stef13 » Mon Apr 29, 2013 11:06 am

Current possibilities to drop to get Cashner
Corbin/Cingrani - but not sure I want to drop them until they show a reason to
Kennedy / Ogando - latter hasn't been as good recently, both tend to worry me when I start them
(Harvey, Burnett, Peavy, Pettitte, Grilli, Perkins are the rest of the pitchers)

Betancourt is available, not quite sure I need him
I have Ruiz and McCann at C, could drop one of them once McCann is activated.
Or swap with Daniel Murphy, but not sure how much of an upgrade that will end up being. I really don't need Murphy, Craig, Betancourt & Berkman (but the latter is a major source of RBIS for me, and as avg /hr are my worst categories, not sure I want to give up anything on the rest of the offensive spots)

TIA very much.

Since McCann is coming back fairly soon I would just drop Ruiz for Cashner. Not having a catcher for 6 days or so won't be a huge burden to you.

That would leave me 3 bench position in pitching and two for offense, is that not an issue? Most in our league either are 3/3 or 4/2 in favor of offense.

It all depends on the league and scoring settings IMO. My biggest money league is a 12 team h2h keeper league. I currently have 2 offensive bench positions and 3 pitching bench positions. I am in first place and I won the league with this same strategy a year ago. While I do value offense more then pitching, sometimes having more pitching depth so you can pick the best match-ups or try to guarantee you can win IP, W, K's, ERA, and WHIP is a nice perk to have every week.

gotcha....... this is roto, 12 team, non keeper. Pitching is whats keeping me in first place, so prob makes sense to use more spots on that. I'm hoping my offense starts to pick up, but really relying on the pitching.
