Moves for the home stretch? WHIR

Postby JJGBPD » Tue Jul 10, 2012 6:33 pm

I couldn't get any replies in the other forum, so I'm giving this a shot! I'm looking to see if any Cafe pro's have advice on some moves I can make at the break to finish strong in 2nd half. I had been in first most the season, but I'm 1 game in 2nd place overall now (78-44-8) in a 10 team 5x5 head to head keep 5 league. I'm 28-27-5 in my last 6 weeks so not doing so hot.

1B - Joey Votto
2B - Ian Kinsler
3B - Miguel Cabrera
SS - Mike Aviles
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Carlos Beltran
OF - Melky Cabrera
UT - Mark Teixeira
UT - Michael Cuddyer

BN - Will Middlebrooks
BN - Salvador Perez
DL - Troy Tulowitzki

SP - Justin Verlander
SP - Clayton Kershaw
SP - Zack Greinke
SP - Gio Gonzalez
SP - CJ Wilson
SP - Jeff Samardzija
SP - Ricky Romero
SP - Jose Quintana
DL - Dan Haren
RP - Fernando Rodney
RP - Joel Hanrahan
RP - Addison Reed

I'm thinking of playing Perez at catcher of CSantana because he has killed me. Is it worth making a SP move for anyone like Gavin Floyd, Neftali Feliz, Phil Hughes, Justin Masterson, Trevor Cahill and Bud Norris. Ricky Romero has been absolutely awful.

Also, I don't like Aviles at SS full time, but only other options are Alexei Ramirez, JJ Hardy and Rafael Furcal. Thanks!

I would go after Phil Hughes or Masterson, I see both having big 2nd halfs. I would definitely stay away from Neftali unless you plan on keeping him, he's young and the Rangers don't want to ruin his arm, there's no guarantee he will even be a starter the rest of the way when he returns from injury.
