Frustrated Roto Owner (Kemp Available) WHIR

Postby Philly_05 » Sun Aug 25, 2013 12:41 pm

It just seems like i'm always just out of reach on overtaking 1st place in my 12 team roto keeper league. I'm 2.5 points out of first place. Everyone else is over 10 points behind myself and the first place team. I feel like I can win it all but just need to get over the hump. My HR's 5 points and RBI's 4 points are killing me this year. But that's something I can only fix next season. What I can do is gain 3 points off holds and wins. 2 off holds I have 60 they have 64 and 64. Wins I have 69 another guy has 71. The real problem seems to be I can't take away points from him. So the only hope I have is some other teams get hot and can take away from his overall totals.

One owner cut Kemp. He's a bottom team and Kemp has to go back into the draft at the end of the season. Players drafted in the first two rounds all go back. Then each year players move up 2 rounds. Would you take a gamble on some late season production out of Kemp? I have a open roster spot with Putz just going on the DL. I have 6th WW spot and can claim and DL him then pickup another Holds guy or SB guy for the time being. My rankings and roster.

1st place Team 104.5 pts
2nd place My Team 102 pts
Runs 11 out of 12 pts
HR 5 out of 12 pts
SB 9 out of 12 pts
K 7 out of 12 pts
AVG 12 out of 12 pts
Wins 11 out of 12 pts
Saves 5 out of 12 pts
K's 11 out of 12 pts
HLD 9 out of 12 pts
ERA 9 out of 12 pts
WHIP 9 out of 12 pts

Ended up getting Kemp with the #6 claim spot. Now I have him stashed on the DL. Now which holds guy to pickup and hope he doesn't blow my ERA and WHIP until Putz gets back lol. :-o

A few names on the top of the holds list the last two weeks/month.

Yoervis Medina ( a lot of holds but ERA and WHIP especially scare me a ton)
Matt Lindstrom
Brandon Kintzler
Matt Belisle
Nate Jones
Tim Collins
Jared Burton
Kelvin Herrera

Any other names that might be off the radar that I should be interested in?
