10 team Roto: Continuous Waivers (processed daily) + FAAB (Fresh $100/100)
Fairly decent team;
League is somewhat competitive, 7 owners are within 69-79 out of 120.
Leave me an email and you're in.
What the heck is wrong with Pedro. If he can't get a hit against the Cubs or Dodgers, then he's useless, right? Plouffe is on waivers and offers a similar kind of build, 3B, power, low Avg, but not as low as Pedro's avg of 0.91.
Do I hold or do I dive in? 10 team Roto, so I can't just sit on it
H2H, 12 team, 6x6, Autopick, Continuous Waivers + FAAB, Standard roster depth. Draft starts 1 week after 10th manager arrives.
R, RBI, HR, SB, AVG, OPS
IP, QS, SV, K, ERA, BB/9
Personally not a fan of all reliever pitching staffs. Not a fan of streaming pitchers either.
To adjust for the reliever bias:
1) Stats were chosen to slightly favor starters (I will expand on this in the message board)
2) 14 Minimum innings /match-up needed to qualify
To adjust for streaming:
1) Max Acquisitions per week limited to 4
2) Waivers clear 3 out of the 7 days in a continuous waivers system
The draft order randomized through another service. (You will find out by email/ message board below). As for the actual draft order, it will be a modified snake, that I will have to enter in manually. It will work something like like this:
1st Round: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10
2nd Round: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
3rd Round: 2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-1
4th Round: 1-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2
5th Round: 3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-1-2
6th Round: 2-1-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3
7th Round: 4-5-6-7-8-9-10-1-2-3
8th Round: 3-2-1-10-9-8-7-6-5-4
9th Round: 5-6-7-8-9-10-1-2-3-4
Darvish has tons of pitches, is built like a monster, and has one of the league's best pitching coach.
Sale has a lower ERA, and throws as many strikeouts. People say the drawback is that he throws with an inverted W.
I'm in 10 man league H2H, but our depth is pretty deep. Standard 5 cats + OPS. I narrowed down the list to:
Infielders who hit ~20+ HR, horrible OPS, racks up Runs and RBI's, horrible batting average
JJ Hardy, SS
Dan Uggla, 2B
Kevin Youkilis, 3B
And outfielders who steal bases
Ben Revere, 40 SB, racks up Runs, batting average is 300, OPS and HR non existent
Coco Crisp, 40 SB, runs, HR, RBI, batting average, low; OPS high
Brian McCann, injured/hurt, had a big year in 2011
I will illustrate the depth by listing players in free agency, sorted by most owned in yahoo leagues.
Mark Teixeira (out for the season, wrist injury saps power as well)
Everth Cabrera (suspended and lost job to Jedd Gorko)
Lance Berkman (injury prone now)
Dustin Ackely (lol, no)
Alex Avila (I don't play in a 2 catcher league, and he fell off)
Trevor Plouffe (Hit 24HR, I suppose his ceiling is like JJ Hardy)
Lorenzo Cain (I suppose his ceiling is Revere?)
JP Arenciba (no)
Jarrod Salt (no)
Matt Carpenter (I might pick him up to replace Jeff Keppinger)
Mark Reynolds (too low of a batting average)
Jordan Pacheco (under consideration)

Craig should put in 2 years of production, Myers should put in 1 year of production. I doubt Myers will be called up this year.
Machado was originally a SS when he was in the minor leagues and he hits like one.
Carpenter was originally a 1B when he was in the minor leagues, but plays good enough defense for 3B and 1B
I have Machado now. Carpenter is going to gain eligibility for 2nd base.
2nd base depth is thin. The Cardinal's lineup is a monster.
Do I drop Machado (77% owned) for Carpenter (8% owned)
