Do I add Wacha or Carrasco? WHIR!!!

Postby Therobsclub » Wed Sep 03, 2014 12:35 pm

I have a limit on pickups for the year and I'm currently at 26/30 with a few weeks of the season to go.

12 team roto and currently in first place by 5 points with plenty of close categories.

My Team:
C: Molina
1B: Abreu
2B: Cano
3B: Sandoval
SS: Zobrist
OF: Braun
OF: Billy Hamilton
OF: Calhoun
Util: Wong
DL: Cabrera
DL: Tulo

P: Janssen
P: Casilla
SP: Kluber
SP: Iwakuma
SP: Fister
SP: Fiers
RP: Papelbon
RP: McGee
Bn: Garza
Bn: Benoit
Bn: Kennedy
Bn: Arrieta
Bn: Simon

Do I add one of these two or both? Alcides and Joc are available for hitting. With stolen bases I'm at 100 and the 4 in front of me are at 103, 104, 108. I'm down 4 for quality starts, Down 3 for wins, I'm tied at 85 saves with 88 in front of me, I'm in the top 3 of each ERA, OBA, and WHIP.

Hitting categories I'm top in avg and 2nd in OBP and the guy in front is very close. I'm middle of the pack for all other hitting categories.

Should I add Wacha or Carrasco? I have 4 pickups left for the season. Seems like Abreu should be ok.

I add both of them...cut Simon and one of your closers....either Casilla since the Giants are using a committee or Benoit who is injured

I like this. You can make up a lot of ground in multiple cats this way and, if you avg a top 3 finish in each of the cats, you'll probably win the league.

But if you don't add both, I would prefer Wacha over Carrasco.

Help with mine?

Benoit is near worthless at this point. So is Casilla. You can cut them both imo. Also, if this is not a keeper league, then Tulo can go and you can put Wacha on the DL until such time as you feel you want to activate him.
