Sweatin' bullets over my staff

14 man 5x5 redraft roto


So going into my draft, I had everything worked out with the 14th pick, well, it did not go down that way. I have never, ever considered a SP before round 4 unless someone fell, well seeing Licnecum at 14,15 was to hard to pass for some reason, so I grabbed him and David Wright.

Anyway, my mid round starters were all grabbed way, way before they should have been thanks to a SP run and the stupid CBS rankings.

So here is my staff and my sorry RP. I mean when certain hitters fall 80 spots from where they should be, no way am I grabbing a closer when I can get a solid bat, esp. in a 14 man league. WITH am I going to do with my starters beyond Billingsley?


Tim Lincecum
Chad Billingsley
Kevin Slowey
Ervin Santana
Gio Gonzalez
CJ Wilson
Mike Gonzalez
Frankilin Morales
Joba Chamberlain

Reserve

Rickey Romero (I hated to but if you saw what I saw on the draft screen, you might have also)
Kevin Correia
Brandon Lyon
Fernando Rodney
Mike Leake
Jenrry Mejia



Being in a 14 man league, the WW looks like a bomb hit it, I mean I was considering Moyer over some of my players.

Should I play a wait and see or deal a big bat for a Sp or God forbid, a RP? I mean I do not hate Slowey, Billingsley or Santana but they will have to have good years for me to have a chance IMO.

I like Bills and Slowey a lot. If you get two good to great starters from those two and Lincecum, you should be fine in a 14 team league. I'd let it play out at first.

Not too confident about Billingsly (though he could get off to a great start...if that were the case, I'd trade him ASAP) but I do like Slowey for the season. As Grey said, let it play out

Thanks guys.

I hope Gio pans out. I really, really like him and I think this is the year we see what he does with 170+ IP. I have him ranked around 170 overall, CZam range IMO.
