Gimme the ringer CHOP CHOP!

Postby IndyJP » Tue Mar 09, 2010 5:16 am

Totally useless subject heading unless you're a Lebowski. The Dude won an Oscar, it should be celebrated. However, back to the subject at hand.... Question is, What pitchers should I be looking at with my first 2 picks (last of the first, first of the 2nd)? Most likely available candidates are Gallardo, Jimenez, Jurrjens, Carpenter, with an outside chance of Josh Johnson and Javier Vazquez.

Its a points league and pitchers score a lot. In fact every pitcher mentioned above is projected to outscore the 4 best hitters in the draft (Holliday, Zimmerman, Lind, Bay). Even James Shields is listed at more, tho I won't be selecting him.

Currently I have myself taking Jimenez and Jurrjens mostly because they are the 2 I have projected falling to me. Obviously I'll be waiting on results of Jair's batting practice today and monitoring him til our draft on the 20th. Would Carp be a safer pick considering I already have Hamels and Price? If Josh Johnson were to fall does he enter my mix?

As always I appreciate all advice and criticism. Oh and The Dude Abides..

Who's not a Lebowski? I'd take Johnson, Ubaldo, Gallardo, Vazquez... In that order.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

They're out there Grey. I don't associate with them but I know they're out there, man. Even mentioned a baseball player....

Thru some investigative work I've learned that at best my options will be Ubaldo/Jurrjens. The guy with the 7th pick wants to move down. Would it be worth it to move up to 7 and get Johnson?

I don't think I explained myself right. I have the back to back picks and I need to take 2 pitchers. If I trade up i'll have johnson and ubaldo. If not I'll have ubaldo and jurrjens.
