B. Lyon vs J. Motte

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Postby Obmij76 » Mon Mar 30, 2009 5:26 pm

Should I keep Lyon or grab Motte before he gets scooped up?

Does it have to be one or the other?

Can never have too many closers...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

I also noticed you have Joel Hanrahan. Do you guys feel Hanrahan is a better option than Motte? How about Hanrahan vs. Mike Gonzalez ATL or B Wilson SF?

I'm in a league that rewards saves, K's and IP - and lose pts for BS, BB and ER's. We start 2 relievers. I have Wilson, Gonzalez, and Motte. I plan on starting:

Wilson SF
Gonzalez ATL

with Motte STL on my bench.

Hanrahan WAS is available as a free agent, as is Corpas COL. Do you think I have it right as far as who is starting? Do yoiu think Hanrahan is a better pick-up than any of the guys I have now?
