Waiver claims in a deep league.

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

Waiver claims in a deep league.

Postby tooms » Fri Apr 03, 2009 8:30 am

Twelve team 7 x 7 roto keeper league. 40-man roster.
hitting categories: AVG, OPS, R, RBI, SB, HR, SO
pitching categories: ERA, WHIP, W, S, HLD, SO, QS

Regardless of anything, I'm dropping Mark Lowe, Dallas McPherson and Luke Hochevar, for obvious reasons... I'll possibly drop Crede as well, which would give me four spots to fill.... the waivers in my league are slim, but notable players are:

bats:
Freese
Barmes
Burriss
Ben Fransisco
Thames
Teahan

sp:
Chan Ho Park
Glen Perkins
Ohlendorf
Scott Lewis
Hammell/Niemann

rp:
Cory Wade
Coffey
Weathers
Jesse Carlson
Rafael Betancourt

Who would you pick up? I need a backup SS and backup 3B and I definitely need some setup men.... I have the sixth waiver this week... so ideally I would pick up Freese, but I don't he'll be there, but I will put him as my first claim regardless... I probably won't pick up any SP, unless someone can convince me otherwise. Most likely going to pick up Wade and Coffey regardless as well. So i'll be picking up two bats and two relievers... Ideally Freese/Fransisco/Thames, Barmes/Buriss/Teahan, Wade and Coffey/Weathers... Thoughts?

Morneau, Justin 1B/CI

You seem pretty light on steals, so this order reflects that -- Burriss, Francisco, Teahen, Freese, Barmes, Wade, Coffey, Weathers, in that order I'd grab them.

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.

mostly agree with that order... especially with buriss. i like freese and barmes more than teahan though. not like it matters much, but i forgot to add ryan sweeney to the list of available bats, he supposed to be leading off for the A's... thoughts on sweeney?

also, tony pena was just dropped, should snag him instead of coffey? who do you think will be the main setup man for qualls? do you think coffey/weathers/betancourt will be setting up or will they be the 6th or 7th inning guy?

Weathers and Pena will be setup men for their respective teams.
