18 team Dynasty, H2H points league, weekly rosters. 25 man rosters with 5 MiLB slots
Best Record (tied), Points lead between 100-300 since the all star break
C- Soto (Iannetta)
1B - Tex
2B - Alexei Ramirez (Erick Aybar)
3B - Jed Lowrie (Alex Gordan DL) (Nick Punto)
SS - Mike Aviles (Furcal DL) (Joaquin Arias)
OF- Corey Hart, Jay Bruce, Darin Erstad (Franceour) (Justin Upton DL) (Andruw Jones DL) (Luis Montanez)
Lowrie was my DH the last couple weeks, but I took a flier on Arias this week in that Texas lineup with Lowrie moving to 3B. The last OF spot is mix and match based on matchups.
P- Jenks, K-Rod, Valverde (Capps DL, for right now, activating tomorrow) (Marmol) (Zumaya DL) (Chris Ray DL)
Jake Peavy, Matt Garza, Roy Oswalt, Joe Blanton, Dave Bush (Brandon McCarthy) (Homer Bailey)
We start 5 pitchers of any type. I usually go with my three big closers, Peavy, and any two start pitcher from my bench (matchup based).
With a points league two-start pitchers on a decent offensive team (Bush, Blanton, Garza) can be very valuable, otherwise Ill take a closer who will usually outscore a 1 start pitcher.
Minor League Roster
Mat Gamel, Matt Weiters, Travis Snider, Mike Moustakas
Jarrod Parker (Troy Patten)
Upton and Furcal have never suited up for my team. I traded for Furcal when he was supposed to come back the last time (bad call) and dealt Quentin for Upton, Jones and Oswalt a few weeks back when I thought I was out of the playoff picture (was 3 games back in division, but still had points lead).
