Got Kershaw! (and FA pickups)

Postby Quintero » Tue Apr 20, 2010 3:56 am

In the league below, this trade is pending.

I get
Clayton Kershaw, Jason Marquis, Adam Kennedy and Ryan Raburn.

I give
Justin Masterson, James Shields, Mike Leake and Kevin Gregg.

After it go thru, I gonna drop Marquis, Kennedy and Raburn for pitching. Normally, I don't like to roster RPs because SV/Holds don't show up week by week regularly, but the SP pool is really dry now and it forces me to rethink the strategy. Which SPs should I pick up? Or you'd rather own RPs?

FA SP targets are:
Brett Myers, Doug Fister, Jonathon Niese, Oliver Pérez, Jason Hammel, and Felipe Paulino.

RP wild cards are:
Jenrry Mejía, Kris Medlen, Carlos Villanueva, Edward Mujica and Scott Downs.

I guess this is more like a strategy question. Thanks for the help.

Interesting that you'd make a trade for 4 guys and immediately cut 3 of them... but what's done is done.

I'd target Fister, Niese, and Mejia.

Thanks, man. Niese and Mejia are both top on my list too because their big market appeal and press opportunity. I need those three to disguise my love and passion for Kershaw, and they are not good enough to stick around. I'm playing with bunch sabermetrics manias, so Fister's peripheral and K-rate are hard for me to bite. I wish I'm in your league where I can just pickup Jamie Garcia..

what was the point of making a deal to drop guys? why not just have him throw in another decent player if the other owner valued the garbage you sent him so highly?

There is a weekly/overall moves limitation. Making me to waste moves is part of the strategy.

I see, he's punishing you with those guy? man, some leagues are weird. Hammel and Downs are both reasonable pickups, maybe keep Kennedy, you never know if he'll have another respectable season.
