I'm thinking pretty far ahead with this one, but I'm far enough in first that I anticipate making it to the finals. My league is a weekly yahoo custom league that counts R, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, K, BB, SB, AVG, and OPS. The semi-finals are Sept. 8-14, and the finals are the Sept. 15-28. I've been looking at the schedules for my starters and noticed that a couple teams will have additional games due to earlier postponements. Specifically, CLE will have 8 games from 8-14, and TB will have 15 games from 15-28.

So my Q is this: does it make sense to pick up a free agent that's on one of the teams with more games and replace him for a starter? For example, I could pick up Ben Francisco and get 8 games out of him, but I would have to bench someone like Wright (5 games, all home) or Hamilton (3 ea @ OAK and SEA, where he has hit poorly so far). I would then flip Francisco for Hinske, and sit Rios (12 games) or Victorino (12 games).

Or should I just go with whomever has better average stats, which would clearly mean not picking up anyone?

Thanks for any thoughts.

I would not mess with what got you there. Of course by the time those dates come around, one of your players might be in a terrible funk or injured so this could be moot.

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.
