Here are some of my own newbie thoughts...what do you think?
1. On the pitching side, going with 5 starters in the 200 Innings range, two relievers in the 115 innings range, and a closer.
For all 8 of these, use whips in 1.3 range, except even go to 1.4 if the guy keeps the ball in the park (HR/9 around .5). Is it smart to sacrifice some on the whip to get the lower HR/?
2. The nineth staff guy would be a basic low salary stiff to serve as mop up...That should get me to about 1350-1400 innings total.
Do I need to draft another decent reliever or will the AAA guys be effective enough?
3. For the hitters...concentrate on defense at second, third, short, and CF...butvtgecquestion I have is: in a low budget league like this should I settle for B fielders at these positions for the sake of better offense?
4. At LF,RF, and 1B, worry little about defense...what I'm thinking about for offense at these positions is a platoon....since I can't afford one high budget player at these positions concentrate at two guys at each position with 350 PA who are darn good in their use and then platooning them on a "vs. lefty-righty" basis...
What do u think???
