Schwartz, I see you took Joey Bats at 15th Overall. I wouldve actually taken him at 11th overall. Where do you rank him with the mix of guys who went 11-14?

So which team is yours, Zach? Off topic of the draft, but this year I was planning on going with a Righty/Lefty platoon for my Util slot this year? Saw an article on baseball prospectus showing that if used correctly you can get huge production from mediocre guys. Have you ever tried this?

broutman,

I’m not in this particular league but I did draft for Siano for part of it, while on the phone with him the whole time!

As for the platoon, I’ve never tried it as I try to stay away from micromanaging my offense as it will probably drive me crazy. But hey, maybe it’s the key to fantasy dominance, so by all means give it a shot!

Zach

Zach,

I always thought about it, but after looking at the numbers it seems like a no-brainer. Last year if you utilized a platoon of Garrett Jones and Cody Ross where Jones plays against righties and Ross against Lefties you get this line: .277, 99 R, 40 HR, 126 RBI. That is unreal production from waiver wire guys. The link to the article is below.

Thanks for this article, broutman. Very interesting. Definitely giving this a try this year!

Hey Zach,

I’ve written before. Our league added Holds this year :-\ and designates RP and SP. Was wondering if you knew of any good Holds candidates that have SP eligibility.

Thanks much,
Andrew

Andrew,

I’d just sort by projected strikeouts under the RP position and the top guys will probably be pitchers with SP eligibility. As long as they won’t kill your ERA/WHIP, those players are your best bet.

Zach

Hey Zach

I had a friend draft for me last night. Its a 12 team roto 5×5 with OPS and QS. He drafted a little heavy steals and light Saves. Can you offer me any ideas on how to balance the team. I am also thinking of targeting Bourjos, Smoak or L. Martin who are still on the wire. Here is my team.

C Santana & J. Montero
1B Freeman, Morneau, Colvin(OF), C. Davis(OF)
2B Cano, E. Cabrera(SS)
3B Beltre
SS A. Escobar
OF Rios, C. Gomez, Granderson, Revere

P Kershaw, Medlen, Peavy, Estrada, Fister, Cobb, McCarthy
RP Motte

Be well

Zach

Zach,

Yeah, considering that Motte is hurt, you’re going to need at least one and probably two more closers. If you could trade someone like a Revere or Cabrera (both fairly one-dimensional players) to address this need, I’d look into it.

Zach

Do you think it’s worth dropping McCarthy or Griffin to pick up Rex Brothers and Jum Henderson?

Do you guys have a favorite for saves in Detroit? I really like Villarreal. I think Leyland said last year he had closer stuff but not enough experience.. i think he has more now.
How long will Tampa waste on Hernandez before Niemann gets a chance?

Luke,

I try to avoid all of those closer situations but it sounds like Benoit might get first crack. But really, who knows! I think the over/under on Hernandez starts before a demotion is 5.

Zach

Dear 411,

Baseball is back! As always thanks for all your help!
Im playing on a 12tm Roto mix League. 7×7 with this stats:
R, HR, RBI, SB, K, TB, OBP
After my draft, i ended up with this two SS: Simmons and Jed Lowrie
Who you’d like better at SS from my picks?
Also Hardy is on the wire, would you drop one of them for him?
Thanks!
MF

MF,

Simmons has the higher ceiling but Lowrie is probably the safer play for now. Regardless though, I’d take Hardy over Lowrie any day. Hold onto Simmons though.

Zach

@Erik – due to an unforseen and unavoidable schedule conflict most of my team was selected via auto-draft, including Bautista. But, I think he’s very fairly valued at #15… I think he’s healthy and should do something like .265-40-110 this year with a handful of steals.

Looking over this draft, what was up with Bloo Meenies, if I am correct they drafted 12 SP including 3 in the first 5 rounds.????

They were on autopick.
