Is there something I just don't get?...WHIR 4 SURE

Postby jonboycubs » Tue May 21, 2013 5:41 pm

Standard ESPN 10 team roto league -http://games.espn.go.com/flb/clubhouse?leagueId=66131&teamId=4&seasonId=2013

I joined a Roto league this year just to see how it worked and to teach myself how to do it. I admit even though I know baseball I do not know all the ins and outs of Roto scoring. I am currently 5th, but have usually been sitting in 6th or 7th. I sent an email to the league today stating I was looking for a nice closer to up my saves as My current closers are just Romo and Grilli. So I am assuming I need at least one more or at least one better than Grilli. This offer I got seems RIDICULOUS, but I want to ask for advice in case there is something I am not seeing or just do not get about Roto.

The team offering this is in 2nd place, should i tell him to go you know himself, or what would be a good counter as like I said, is there something about ROTO I just do not get? Thanks

This was the offer

I GET - ALCIDES ESCOBAR and RAFAEL SORIANO

i GIVE - STRAUSBURG AND JEAN SEGURA


I know I have Castro at SS but still how can this offer make sense as I want to tell the guy I am not even going to counter as this offer insults my intelligence as a baseball fanatic. So please tell me if I am wrong in thinking this is straight up bull.

Nope you're not overthinking. That's a really bad offer. Doesn't even really warrant a counter in my opinion
