Should I trade stud pitching for hitting? 12 team roto, WHIR

Postby mmonteath » Mon Jun 03, 2013 9:33 pm

I like my team but the offense could use some more power. Can't wait for Jackson and Granderson to come back. Not really much on the WW. May drop Nick Franklin for Brandon Crawford but not really much else out there. Also I know that I need some RP help but this league is quick to pick up anyone who may get a save so it's been tough to beat them to a new closer. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I agree that your team needs more power. Although you dont have a horrible outfield, i think it's going to be your cheapest option to upgrade. If you can get a SS then thats great.

2 alternatives:

1-drop nick franklin for an OF that you can platoon with de aza and pence (matchups).

2-it's kind of a desperate move but i think you may have to kinda give up some sb's in favor of hr/rbi. try to bundle one of your second tier sp's with kipnis. You can start gyorko and i think get comprable power and avg. Then I'd try to sell high on ryu. He's good but i think he will regress a bit. For ryu and kipnis you should be able to get a substantial OF upgrade and another closer. Be careful not to get a stud closer and a crap OF though. You need the r/hr/rbi upgrade to win this league, but you could semi-punt saves if you had to.
