Private League with Silly Stats

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

Private League with Silly Stats

Postby royce! » Tue Aug 19, 2008 3:39 pm

My weekly h2h league uses the following pitching stats: IP, W, CG, SHO, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP.

I currently start 5 starters and 2 closers, but was thinking about slotting closers and middle relievers as my 3 non-SPs.

So I would go from:

SP-Lackey
SP-Peavy
RP- Rivera
RP-Broxton
P-Guthrie
P-Lester
P-Nolasco

To something like:

SP-Lackey
SP-Peavy
RP-Rivera
RP-Broxton
P- Kuo
P- Fuentes
P- (Someone else for HLDs, such as Arredondo, Taylor Buchholz, Balfour, Carrasco, JC Romero, Gaudin, Scott Downs, Matt Lindstrom, Manny Corpas, etc.)

To set up this experiment I will have to drop Galarraga, who scares me anyhow.

So, considering the stats we count, is this plan worth a try, or is basically punting IP, W, CG, SHO and likely Ks giving too much for a chance to dominate ERA, WHIP, SV, HLD, and K/BB?

I guess it's a plan worth trying if you're losing with what you have going now. So are you? Why the change? However, I do agree about Galarraga. I don't like his chances for success. Though I haven't liked them for two months and he continues to pitch well.

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.

Of the categories, I've won around 3 a week for the last 6 week period. My offense has basically been carrying me. However, this might be due to others I've started (such as Gio last week, and recently Harang and Verlander).

But the two main reasons are: 1. I don't expect to have any 2 start pitchers for the first week of our playoffs (and the possible 2 start FA market is not pretty), and will likely go up against someone with 1-3; and 2. My team is in first by 12 points, and has been in first for most of the season, so I might be getting antsy.

The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that Peavy, Lackey, Guthrie, Nolasco and Lester could probably net me ERA, WHIP, and K/BB anyway so I should probably not mess with it now.

Thanks

Yeah, I wouldn't mess with that much success right now.
