How should I assemble my staff around these 3?

Postby kundog » Fri Mar 14, 2003 11:50 am

I have not had my auction yet, but I know that I will be keeping:

Mark Prior
Wade Miller
Odalis Perez

My question is, Do I need to get a frontline starter or can I continue to get 3 more second tier guys and make a run of the league with it. In our league the second tier of pitchers tend to be undervalued.

Do you have to have an ace to win it all?

Any help would be appreciative!

You don't have to have an ace but it makes it much easier when you have someone dependable like RJ. But don't count on those three to lead your staff. Get a seasoned veteran like Mussina or Zito.

First of all. Those three pitchers for a core looks very strong.
You don't need an ace with those three.. Only 3 teams in a league will get a guaranteed ace and you'll be better off than all of them with those three and three more quality risks.

You're leaning a tad toward jumping on the bandwagon since Prior is the hopeful new young stud, Miller had a great second half, and Perez was strong last year. I think you're best deal there is Miller. With Oswalt frontlining for him he has security and a great lineup behind him... Same with Prior except not as much lineup behind him (maybe).. Look to gain some security with some other possible bargain picks in guys like Randy Wolf (great SO/bb ratio).....possibly a guy like Rodrigo Lopez and Johan Santana probably not all will have stellar seasons but at least one will.

Thats a very good core. Just add a few more second tier pitchers and you'll be fine.
Swing hard, just in case you hit the ball.
