No question here, just telling my situation.
Here's the situation for me in my 15 team roto keeper league. I'm in #2 by 3 pts. By category, its:
My rival: Runs-15, RBI-15, SB-15, Total Bases-15, OBP-10
Wins-14, SV-15, K-15, ERA-9, WHIP-11
Me: Runs 13, RBI-12, SB-11, TB-14, OBP 12.5
Wins 15, SV-14, K-14, ERA-11, WHIP-14.5
Categories where I can make up points:
Obviously, OBP and WHIP, where I'm tied, could get me a point if I improve.
I trail my rival by 6 K's. That'd be a two point swing.
I trail a guy by 1 SB and have a guy behind me by 1 SB. I'm relying on Carl Crawford, Renteria, Randy Winn to get me some points there. I also have Dave Roberts on the bench if I'm desperate.
I trail a guy by 10 RBI, but have a guy 2 RBI behind me. I trail someone by 6 runs.
I trail my rival by 6 saves. I have 4 1/2 closers (Foulke, Mantei, Aq. Lopez, Riske, and Looper) to his two (Cordero and Beck). He picked up some middle men to help in the K department (Mota, K-rod, and Dotel)
My ERA is 3.71. The three ahead of my are 3.67, 3.64, and 3.62. Since my strategy is to maximize strikeouts by picking up spot starts, improving there might be dicey.
His remaining starting pitchers:
Today: Todd Van Poppel(!) vs CHC
Tomorrow: Clement vs Pit
Sat: Jamey Wright, Edwin Jackson, Jae Weong Seo
Sun: Wilson Alvarez, Brandon Webb
Today: Salamon Torres (!)
Tomorrow: Rodrigo Lopez
Sat: Clemens and Ryan Vogelson
Sun: Washburn and Wade Miller
Win or lose, this is a lot of fun.
