Whos the odd man out

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

Whos the odd man out

Postby neno » Thu Jun 27, 2013 7:32 pm

Just completed a trade for Kipnis, AJones and Harper after sacrificing some pitching. (SMiller and JSamardzija) I also gave up Choo and Machado (who has just been sitting on my bench with Beltre at 3rd and Ortiz doing well at UT). Questions:

1. Since Harper will be back soon, I'll have 6 guys and only 5 spots to put them in. Freeman, Ortiz, Trout, Harper, Jones, and Heyward have to be split among one 1B, one Ut, and 3 OF positions. Freeman and Ortiz are included in this mess because if the four outfielders are better than either Freeman or Ortiz, the fourth OF can fit UT and the better 1B can slide into that position. Who's left out?

2. Ive neglected holds and although I was not considering the severe drop in Ks when making this deal, but Id like some advice on where to take my pitching. Currently have two roster spots available. Should I take the odd man out from above and package him for an ace (I am thinking at the level of Kershaw) and look into Gregerson? Or there's one guy with both Gio and Scheppers, so maybe aim for those two instead which would address my Ks and holds issue? A final option would be to just continue ignoring holds and stream pitchers (ex. Locke, Griffin, Porcello, Blanton are a few guys currently on the wire).

Thanks ahead of time and apologies for the length.

Right now I would stream pitchers and bench Heyward. Unless you have to trade. Heyward isn't hitting so I would want to do a trade and then be stuck with him in your starting lineup.
