5x5 (plus OPS) 11 team roto non keeper

Postby Morat » Tue Mar 11, 2008 5:35 pm

Standard rotisserie non- keeper Yahoo style league 5x5 with OPS also added in for hitting. 1200 IP limit for pitching. Do I need more pop?

C – Carlos Ruiz
1B – Texiera
2B – Kelly Johnson
SS – Hanley Ramirez
3B – Aramis Ramirez
OF – Matt Kemp
OF – Hunter Pence
OF – Shane Victorino
Util/DH – Jermey Hermida

SP – Lackey, Verlander, James Shields, Rich Hill
RP – Hoffman, Corpas,
P – Brandon Lyon

4 Bench dudes – Adam Wainwright, Chris Duncan, Youkulis, Chase Headly

I need Wainwright as my 5th starter but I could loose the other three on the bench if anyone has recommendations. I was thinking about some of these dudes still on waivers:

1) Jeff Kent, Kaz Matsui or Akinori Iwamura in case Kelly falters and platoons like last year. I could wait on these, no one should grab ‘em unless you all think one is better than KJ.
2) Garko, Votto, Kotchman, Mike Jacobs, Billy Butler, Jose Gullien for DH pop in case one of my young OFs craps out. People seem high on Garko but will he hit more dingers than Duncan and/or would/should I start him over one the other OFs like Hermida?
3) Pitches on waivers: Gil Meche, Arroyo, Scott Baker, El Duque, Guthrie, Randy Wolf, Ian Kennedy etc. Don’t think they are better than Wainwright, his second half last year impressed me.

Love KJ at second. He will score a lot of runs batting in front of Chipper and Tex for a full season (without having to worry about platooning with anyone now that Escobar is a full time SS). And if spring training is any indication, KJ will be leading off, meaning he'll also be batting in front of Escobar, who is poised to establish himself as great SS. KJ should at the very least put up Kent-like numbers.

I also like Wainwright as a 5th starter - at least as strong as the waiver options.

The only weakness I see is the one you pointed out ... possible lack of power if Kemp, Pence, and/or Hermida do not perform as projected. Though Tex and ARam should protect against your downside risk.
