SP, Who do I Start? Title Edition

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

SP, Who do I Start? Title Edition

Postby wudaben » Fri Sep 06, 2013 8:08 pm

Ok, championship round version of "who do I start"!

Our league does not allow any pickups in the playoffs except one emergency pickup. If you have a player get injured you can pickup someone else but you only get 1. My injuries, Heyward & Beachy happened in the opening weeks of the playoffs and up until now I've managed to get by with my starting lineup (Posey, Goldschmidt, Cano, Segura, Lawrie, A Jones, Choo, Cespedes & Sandoval) and my only bench bat is Profar. I am contemplating using my one injury pickup this week to grab Jarrod Parker as one of my 4 starters, it's a bit of a risk especially with Posey's finger but realistically how many points am I going to get from a waiver catcher anyway... I'm thinking it's possibly worth the risk. Worst case scenario I won't have a position player to start if I get an injury to someone Profar cannot sub for.

Matchups go for two weeks and you cannot change out your pitchers between weeks unless they are on the DL. Need to choose 4 starting pitchers. I am thinking Minor, Ryu, Zimmermann & Parker but Bailey is an option as well. What do you think?

3 Start Options:

Ryu ARI (Cahill), @SF (Vogelsong), @SD (Kennedy)
Minor @MIA (Fernandez), @WAS (Haren), @CHC (Samardzjia)
Zimmerman @NYM (Gee), PHI (Martin), MIA (Alverez)
Wheeler WAS (Haren), SF (Petit), @PHI (?)
Lincecum COL (Chacin), @LAD (Nolasco), @NYY (Sabathia)
Tillman NYY (Sabathia), @TOR (Rogers), @TB (Hellickson)
Samardzjia @CIN (Leake), @MIL (Estrada), ATL (Minor)
Parker @MIN (Hendricks), @TEX (Darvish), MIN (?)

2 Start Options:

Bailey @MIL (Hellwig), @PIT (Liriano)
Wood @MIA (Eovaldi), @WAS (Roark)
Salazar @CHW (Santiago), @KC (Duffy)
12 Team H2H Points Weekly Lineups:
Hitting Scoring: HR: 4 SB: 2 1B: 1 2B: 2 3B: 3 BB: 1 R: 1
Pitching Scoring: Win: 10 Loss: -5 Inn: 3 K: 1 ER: -2 Hits: -1 BBI: -1 Save: 8 BS: -3 CG: 5 SO: 5 No Hitter: 5 Perfect Game: 10

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.

Grey... Thanks again for assisting in another title! While the pitching decision above didn't work out quite like I expected, Zimmermann's big game and my hitters turned out to be too much in the end.
