Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

in Roto leagues I like to get a few 5-tool guys (Upton for Tampa and Granderson for Det are money in roto) and also I like to draft 3 or 4 STUD closers. First of all, they will keep your innings down so you have wiggle room towards the end of the season to bulk up on starting pitchers if you need k's and wins. Secondly, they by far have the best ERA and WHIP ratios of all pitchers, so you'll score high in those categories. They also give you high strikeout rate so for the innings you are using, you're getting good strikeouts. Like I said, if towards the end of the season you are low on wins and ks (which generally happens with a team full of stud closers) you can try and trade players or pick up free agents to get wins and whatnot.
