Carrying extra bats?

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

Carrying extra bats?

Postby rightwingjedi » Thu Apr 04, 2013 5:25 am

I usually do not like more than 1 or so extra bats but this year I am having a hard time dropping them.

I love to stockpile pitchers especially closers in waiting.

What would you do with my team?

Well I don't think much of Cowgill so I would be fine dropping him. I would probably then just wait and see what Gyorko and Brown do. If there is a hot pitcher on the WW, I wouldn't hesitate to much in dropping either.

I know it's not popular, but I always carry extra bats early.

Early on I want a bunch of hitters and RPs. I don't carry enough SP to hit the season IP limit for the first month or so (though I always like to keep a streamer slot going).

When there's so much early volatility going on with hitters and RPs, I want as many chances as possible to find an early waiver wonder. I absolutely hate loading my roster up with guys who do nothing for 4 out of 5 days in the early going.

IP can be made up later. The waiver studs that emerge in April can't be had for free later.

The downfall, of course, is that early in the season is great time to get in innings, but that's what the streamer slot is for.
