Starting OF decisions...

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

Starting OF decisions...

Postby Frank Rizzo » Tue May 12, 2009 1:39 pm

Until I can figure out a way to trade off some OF talent, I'm stuck making starting decisions. I've got 3 OF positions and 1 Utility to fill tonight.

LF - Braun (No brainer - no matter the matchup)
CF/RF - Kemp (Chan Ho Park in Philly)
CF - T Hunter (Home against Masterson - Boston)
LF/CF/RF - J Bruce (Haren in Arizona)
LF/CF/RF - Ellsbury (Jared Weaver in LA)
RF - J Upton (Home against Owings - Cincy)
LF - A Lind (Home against Burnett - NYY)

Right now I've got Braun in LF, Kemp in CF, Upton in RF, and Lind at Utility. I don't like Bruce's matchup. Ellsury's matchup doesn't excite me either. I'm wondering if I should pull any of them for Hunter tonight against Masterson.

Yahoo 10 Team H2H, 5 x 5, Outfielders position specific. Keep 1.
C - Gary Sánchez NYY - C
1B - Anthony Rizzo ChC - 1B
2B - Rougned Odor Tex - 2B

LF - Stephen Piscotty StL - 1B,LF,RF
CF - Starling Marte Pit - LF,CF
RF - Grégory Polanco Pit - RF
Util - Trea Turner Was - 2B,CF
DL - Giancarlo Stanton Mia - RF

SP - Kevin Gausman Bal - SP,RP

I'd start Hunter over Lind.

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.
