MR's to target

Postby Achilles » Sun Feb 28, 2010 8:48 am

I usually draft 5 or 6 starters, depending on the innings limit and then 3 closers and fill out the rest of my staff at least 3 and sometimes as many as 5 relievers. The relievers I target are not usually just a handcuff to my closer. I tend to look for guys with high K/9 and low whip that tend to get 80+ IP. I guess what I'm asking is who to target that meet this criteria that isn't necessarily an 8th inning set-up guy. It seems I can normally get these guys with my last 4 or 5 picks since almost no-one is targeting them and I get ridiculed for wasting my final few picks. But I generally win the K, whip and era cats. An example of these types for me would be...Romo, Thornton, Lindstrom, Gurrier, Zumaya, maybe even Burton from Cincy. Thanks for any others you could add to this list.

I have a top 20 MR list that has some names:

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.

Madson might end up with more saves than Lidge. And if you league counts holds, he should be around 40 saves+holds. And he’ll give ya solid numbers elsewhere too.

Matt Thornton is probably the most dominant setup man available. Neftali Feliz would be a great option if he pitches in the setup role.

For a what have I got to lose pick, K Escobar will let you start a RP in a SP slot and he pitches for a team that’ll need a lot of innings from the pen (so lots of vulture win/hold opps). But he’s more of a final pick flier where anything you get is gravy.
