Without posting who is left and what scoring format and how many bench slots you have, this is sort of a pointless question. From your post it looks like your starting roster is filled...so wouldn't it be best available at that point?

Definitely a pitcher. I like your lineup, generally, but that's a high-wire act of a starting rotation you've got there.

Definitely go for a pitcher. You hitting is already pretty complete, so just stack up on sleeper pitchers and hope one breaks out. Or, if there's still a solid hitter left, take him and then trade one of your other hitters (and possibly package with Zito or Morris) for a studlier pitcher than your have.

You're offense is STACKED, your RP is very good, but your SP needs work.

some options

Postby baseball_playa18 » Tue Jan 25, 2005 9:39 pm

here is a list of some available SP in no particular order....Andy Pettitte, Jon Leiber, Nate Robertson, John Lackey, David Wells, Eric Milton, Jarrod Washburn, Adam Eaton, Gil Meche, Woody Williams, Al Leiter, Tim Wakefield, Jamie Moyer, Noah Lowry, Edwin Jackson, Jerome Williams, Darrel May, Randy Wolf, Orlando Hernandez.

Who do you recommend? I like Pettitte but not sure if he's worth the injury risk. I also like Randy Wolf but I think I can wait a few rounds b4 I grab him. So let me know which of these pitchers is the best bet and why. thanks.

I agree with the above suggestions for a SP. At this point, you're going to have to keep up with high risk/reward types. Sooo.... no particular order I'd look at Eaton, Jackson, J. Williams, Meche, Wolf, and possibly May.
