Go with Lots of Closers?

Postby brdmaverick » Sun Apr 18, 2004 5:16 pm

In my H2H roto league there 8 categories.....

W,L,S,K, CG, ERA, WHIP, TB (total bases), K/BB

here is my pitching staff

SP
Josh Beckett
Mark Mulder
Matt Morris
Freddy Garcia
Adam Eaton
Matt Riley
Brett Myers

RP
Joe Borowski
Francisco Cordero
Matt Mantei
Joe Nathan

do you think it would be to my advantage to drop Brett Myers for David Riske?

Riske just picked up his 1st save today I believe. I wouldn't drop Myers just yet. I believe he will have a decent year but if Riske starts getting more chances I dont believe it would hurt you at all to try to pick him up.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Go get Riske...

You can drop any of these 3 for him:

Eaton
Riley
Myers

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I wouldn't drop Eaton for Riske. If I had to drop one of those, I'd go with Riley.

But Riley has the biggest upside and Eaton plain sucks.

Saves = 1 Category people....trade away your closers for guys who help in multiple categories....I havent had a closer in three years and have done fine.....Brett Myers and Adam Eaton are gonna be studs....Riske cant hold the jock of any starter among your staff besides Riley, who has never proven anything in the minors like Myers has. Suck all you can out of RIley and then drop him for Riske if you must, but I would try trading Riley to some unkowing sap who would deal you a Escobar or a Clement for him.

Buy low sell high....this is as high as Riley gets
