E. Santana vs C. Janssen?

Postby SecretAgentMan » Sun Aug 10, 2014 11:50 pm

5x5 Roto, 10 team non-keeper, 13/9/2C rosters, shallow bench.

First place team with a large lead in saves (102, 2nd place in the cat is at 95, 3rd at 82). Currently starting F. Rodriguez, Holland and Benoit each week with C. Janssen my only reserve pitcher. Roster is below.

Not big on E. Santana as he is pretty erratic (but so is Janssen). Lead in ERA and WHIP and am trying to protect that so I doubt I start my reserve pitcher either way unless someone gets hurt or implodes. However, Santana is potentially more useful to me for some extra Ks or Ws down the line than Janssen is. Would you make the switch?

C: S. Perez, Rosario
1b: Morse
2b: Kinsler
SS: Desmond
3b: Frazier
IF: A. Ramirez
OF: Gomez, Cruz, Polanco, Yelich, Crisp
Util: Baez
Bench: Choo
DL: Encarnacion, C. Gonzalez

SP: Kershaw, Cueto, Teheran, Lohse, Wheeler, Ventura
CL: Holland, F. Rodriguez, Benoit
Bench: C. Janssen

That's a fair swap. You're probably fine with 3 closers anyway and you can never have enough decent SP, IMO.

I would prefer Santana over Janssen.

Help with mine?
