1st Post, Escobar/Kim=SP's with RP eligibility?

Postby The Juice Factory » Tue Mar 16, 2004 9:33 am

10 team, H2H, 7X7 league

What are your thoughts on drafting Escobar or Kim to plug into the reliever role even though they will be starting this year?

Both are eligible in my league(15 RP appearances last year), anyone else worth looking into for this role?

Will there be enough RP left in the late rounds when these guys will be available, or is this strategy woth while?

Thanks for any insight, I've been reading what you guys have to say for over a month now, and thought I could use some help of my own. ;-)

Kim and Escobar and Batista and Contreras are all SP/RP guys, and they all deserve roster spots in a 10 team league. But you're going to need a second closer, so make sure you get one. If your league only has SP and RP slots, you might want to think about Danny Graves, who is listed as a SP, but is closing this year.

The strategy of starting pitchers in RP slots only seems to help with no league ip limit or a very few amount of daily pitching slots (or weekly changes).
