I'll have one empty spot on my roster come tomorrow, and I'm wondering who to add. The way our league is set up pitchers are VERY valuable, so I've only been keeping one bench batter all season for "just in case" scenarios, and I've loaded up on pitching. That strategy had me in first for a while, and now I'm in second and 2 games out of 1st. Anyway, with Bruce sitting out recently and Youk leaving the game last night, I feel like I might need another batter. Still, if they're going to be bench players they don't really do me any good. It's an 8-team league so there are a lot of good FA's. If someone gets hurt I can probably find a good FA add in a pinch, which makes me think carrying around another pitcher is the best idea. I'm leaning toward Bumgarner, but with my team who would you add?
One year, 8 teams, H2H points
SP: Lincecum, Cain, Kershaw, Jimenez, Hellickson, Vogelsong, Luebke
RP: Rivera, Marmol, Feliz, Storen, Street
DL: Johan Santana, Stephen Strasberg
Note: players I'm really considering bolded
Brett Lawrie (stash him)
Joe Nathan (4th save in 4 chances today, but only 1 K in those 4 chances)
Thanks a lot guys, and I'll gladly return the favor!!
