16-team 5x5 ESPN OBP League
C Wilin Rosario 9
1B Paul Konerko 6
2B Brandon Phillips 5
3B Ryan Zimmerman 3
SS Alexei Ramirez 17
OF Carlos Gonzalez 1
OF Michael Bourn 4
OF Josh Willingham 8
UTIL Coco Crisp 14
UTIL Lucas Duda 18

SP Clayton Kershaw 2
SP Jarrod Parker 10
RP Drew Storen 11
RP Addison Reed 12
P Aroldis Chapman 7
P Glen Perkins 13
P Clay Buchholz 15
P Tommy Milone 16

So my main team's all drafted, and now I've gotta fill out my bench. It's unfortunate that I took Storen literally the day before Soriano signed. Last year I ended up having 7 RPs on my team and it was really effective for me, so I'd like something similar. I like the strategy a lot because 3 extra RPs is equal to having a 180 IP pitcher with incredible ratios.
Do I need any more starters? Any high-upside guys? I'll probably grab Luebke or something. Who are some RPs with potential saves and/or good ratios? And any suggestions for backup guys (multi-infield position and the like)?

I think you are going to want another SP. Kershaw is great to have but there are a lot of question marks between Parker and Chapman. Also not very high on Buchholz.

As for other help, it is hard to know who is available. Any guys you have interest in that we can help guide that way?

Buchholz was pretty good for the second half of the season last year. He changed his pitch selection or something, but I don't remember what. I'll get some names for you when I can, thanks.

I could grab Jamey Caroll or Chris Nelson for multi-position guys but they suck. I dunno. I'll probably grab Luebke with my next pick. For RPs, there's Fujikawa, David Hernandez, Santos, Bailey, Marshall, and Gregerson. Which 3 (in order) would you take?

Santos, not sold he won't close eventually there
Fujikawa, could steal saves, even heard he could take Marmols job
Hernandez, puts up great whip/era
