Add Ben Sheets?

Postby heathweston » Wed Jul 11, 2012 12:38 am

Is he worth a look in a 20 team roto league with deep rosters (5x5)? I could use the pitching help, but don't really know who to drop.

The options right now are Jerome Williams, Brent Morel, Scott Podsednik, Matt Belisle or Nate Jones.

I've also been offered a deal of:
MY: Austin Jackson/Justin Maxwell/Matt Belisle
HIS: Tyler Clippard/Raul Ibanez/Henry Rodriguez

Here's my team:

C Soto
1B Pujols
2B Beckham
3B Sandoval
SS Andrus
CI Murphy
MI Altuve
OF Jay, C. Young, A. Jackson, Smith
Util Nava
Bench J. Montero, Carter, Ryan, Podsednik(NA), Nick Markakis
DL Morel, Maxwell

SP Gallardo, Cahill, Blanton, Maholm, Romero, Cecil, J. Williams(DL)
RP Janssen, Furbush, Coke, Jones, McGee, Belisle
DL Storen

Yeah, I think Sheets is worth a gamble in a league that deep. He just got picked up in my 15-teamer. Sheets offers a smidge more upside than your typical midseason wire arm. Should get good run support; just don't be surprised if he rarely goes more than five or six innings, limiting the W opportunities.

Do NOT do that deal. Austin Jackson is having a breakout year. Tyler Clippard may be pitching lights out, but Storen is coming back and will at least get half of the save opportunities for the rest of the season. Clippard may even be put back in the set up role. Rodriguez and Ibanez? Don't even want them at all.
