Big Help GUYS! WHIR 100% CHEERS!

Postby etl1692 » Mon Mar 17, 2014 10:33 am

What are my Strengths and Weaknesses?
Who can I pick up (I have #2 Waiver do I use it) ?

Waivers: Yordano Ventura (SP), Ervin Santana (SP), Mike Leake (SP), Kyle Lohse (SP), Corey Kluber (SP), John Lackey (SP), Avisail Garcia (OF), Nick Castellanos (OF), Andre Ethier (OF), Nick Markakis (OF), Michael Brantley (OF), Alejandro de Aza (OF), Alexei Ramirez (SS)

NOTE: It is a keeper league. So I am open to snagging prospects..... HENCE Matt Harvey, but obviously its too early to store him. Anyone else I could be missing?

League: 10 Teams, Head 2 Head

Batting:
C: Yadier Molina
1B: Joey Votto
2B: Dustin Pedroia
3B: Pedro Alverez
SS: Hanley Ramirez
OF: Yoenis Cespedes ; Mark Trumbo(1B,OF) ; Austin Jackson
Util: Kyle Seager
Util: Desmond Jennings
BN: Xander Bogaerts(3B,SS)
BN: Asdrubal Cabrera

Pitching:
P: Justin Verlander* ; P: Anibal Sanchez P: Jordan Zimmerman ; P: Hiyun-jin Ryu ; P: Julio Tehren ; P: Hisashi Iwakuma ; P: Matt Garza ; SP: Ubaldo Jiminez ; SP: Brandan Beachy ; RP: Jim Henderson ; RP: Steve Cishek


SCORING
Batting: R=1 H=1 2B=2 3B=3 HR=4 RBI=2 SB=2 CS=-1 BB=1 IBB=1 HBP=1 K=-1 GIDP=-1 TB=1
Pitching: IP=1 W=10 L=-5 CG=10 SHO=10 SV=5 ER=-1 BB=-1 HBP=-1 K=1 WP=-1 BLK=-1 Pick=2 NH=20 PG=25

Strength would probably be your SP with Verlander, Zimmermann, Ryu, Teheran and Iwakuma. Your weakness is your OF and RP. I wouldn't be happy with that OF in a 16 team league to be honest. I don't think you will win saves match ups with only 2 closers. I would consider cutting Ubaldo for Castellanos. He will gain his 3B eligibility after a few of weeks. I'm sure you have a lot of prospects on the wire but with such a small league/rosters you don't really have room to stash them.

help on mine?

Thanks..... I personally am not a big saves guy. I like to stick a SP,RP there. Saves I feel are undervalued in my league...

Im hurtin for an OF, should I attempt to make a tradE? Why is every so leery on TRUMBO?

The large majority on the cafe are Trumbo fans. I'm in the minority and have avoided him this year. I just don't like killing categories with a player who will K close to 200 times and give a horrible average. I would rather have 10 less HR and a good average and 80-100 less K's.

Yeah I agree 100%. Batting average, and some other stats dont really affect me as I am in a H2H league, not Rotisserie.

Anyways thinking about dealing one of my decent Pitchers, and one of my 3B, for an OF...


Any suggestions? ALSO... don't use my #2 waiver pick JUST yet right?

I like Castellanos on the wire. I think ACab is pretty meh especially since you have Bogaerts. Like Ventura, Santana, Leake, over both Garza and Beachy. I'd be tempted to get rid of Beachy for Ventura, but it is the #2 Waiver Wire order, so it's tough. Can you wait until these guys are in FA status or is it every pickup knocks you back in the order? Lot of good guys on the wire.

I'd go after Avisail Garcia and Yordano Ventura HARD. Maybe not waiver claim hard, but if you can get them as FA: do it. Both are going to be studs this year.

Agreed I would punt Beachy whose done for Ventura and ACab maybe deal him for a solid OF or dump him for Nick-C.
