My league is a 10-team 12x12 (dont' ask, it is ridiculous
) Roto with 25 roster spots, no transaction limits, no innings limit, and daily lineups. We can keep 10 players indefinitely with no penalties.
Stat Cats - Offense: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, BB, K, FPCT, AVG, OPS, NetSB
Stat Cats - Pitching: IP, W, L, CG, BB, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, Inherited Runs Allowed, QS, NetSV
Postions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, LF, CF, RF, OF, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, and 6 bench spots. (25 total roster spots)
I have identified 6 definitive Keepers: T. Tulowitzki, J. Upton, A. Gonzalez, J. Ellsbury, R. Zimmerman, and E. Hosmer
I am struggling with the remaining 5 out of the following list (order is not preference): M. Napoli, B. Posey, M. Trout, D. Uggla, B. Beachy, D. Hudson, M. Latos, C. Leubke, and M. Pineda
Right now I am leaning towards my 4 being: Napoli, Uggla, Latos, and Hudson.
My strategy is generally to have no bench spots taken up by an offensive player, have 3 closers, 2 middle relievers, and then daily rotate SP into my everyday lineup, but not necessarily stream pitchers (I do have a life to live).
I am obviously weak in pitching to begin with, so do I just stock up on my offense and pawn some of them off to acquire pitching and hope for the best in the draft or do I take a couple gambles on guys like Pineda, Hudson, and/or Beachy.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
