Man, my team is nose-diving the last three weeks. At least I'll have a ton of crappy PAs to choose from or trade away.

I think you made the right choice.

I have 82 starts but only 37 quality starts. 

My bullpen of Jeffress, Knebal, Colome, Gsellman, Watson, Peacock and Casilla looks pretty good though.  Hoping Suter and Liriano can stay relatively healthy and Zimmerman can get deeper into games, I should be ok at starter.

I'll have good excess SS and C PAs to trade along with a reliever.  I'm gonna need a 1Bman or OFer.

@cosjobs has under 400 IP, the least batter games played, and 10 SV/H. 

That won't end well.

At about the halfway point:

BATTING

1 - SS Turner, Trea (R)  .264/.347/.398  8 HR  21 SB
2 - CF Almora Jr., Albert (R)  .318/.359/.446  4 HR  1 SB
3 - RF Rosario, Eddie (L)  .309/.348/.563  17 HR  6 SB
4 - C Realmuto, J.T. (R)  .308/.367/.549  10 HR  1 SB
5 - 3B Moustakas, Mike (L)  .255/.310/.467  15 HR  3 SB
6 - LF Parra, Gerardo (L)  .306/.343/.426  5 HR  6 SB
7 - 2B Harrison, Josh (R)  .267/.305/.374  4 HR  2 SB
8 - 1B Mancini, Trey (R)  .226/.295/.368  10 HR  0 SB

(Parra and Almora could switch against righties.)

Bench - C Severino, Pedro (R)  .175/.265/.231  0 HR  1 SB
Bench - IF Camargo, Johan (S)  .243/.351/.425  7 HR  0 SB
Bench - IF Sanchez, Yolmer (S)  .257/.304/.405  5 HR  8 SB
Bench - OF Heredia, Guillermo (R)  .237/.335/.325  2 HR  1 SB
Bench - 1B McMahon, Ryan (L)  .211/.283/.337  2 HR  0 SB
Bench - IF Torreyes, Ronald (R)  .323/.343/.415  0 HR  0 SB

(Camargo is improving rapidly, and could send Mancini to the bench)

...

PITCHING

SP1  Bauer, Trevor (R)  107 IP,  2.44 ERA,  1.093 WHIP,  0.42 HR/9
SP2  Manaea, Sean (L)  106.2 IP,  3.38 ERA,  0.966 WHIP,  1.27 HR/9
SP3  Greinke, Zack (R)  103 IP,  3.41 ERA,  1.107 WHIP,  1.4 HR/9
SP4  Gonzales, Marco (L)  91.1 IP,  4.04 ERA,  1.281 WHIP,  0.99 HR/9
SP5  Williams, Trevor (R)  87 IP,  4.03 ERA,  1.195 WHIP,  1.03 HR/9

SP6  Stratton, Chris (R)  91 IP,  4.45 ERA,  1.396 WHIP,  0.89 HR/9
LR  German, Domingo (R)  64.1 IP,  5.32 ERA,  1.212 WHIP,  1.54 HR/9
SU  Alvarez, Jose (L)  35.2 IP,  3.03 ERA,  1.15 WHIP,  0.5 HR/9
SU  Vazquez, Felipe (L)  32.2 IP,  3.86 ERA,  1.408 WHIP,  0.28 HR/9
SU  Rogers, Taylor (L)  32 IP,  4.22 ERA,  1.281 WHIP,  0.56 HR/9
CL  Jansen, Kenley (R)  38 IP,  2.37 ERA,  0.921 WHIP,  0.95 HR/9

MOP  Despaigne, Odrisamer (R)  20.1 IP,  5.31 ERA,  1.475 WHIP,  0.44 HR/9
MOP  Blackburn, Paul (R)  17.1 IP,  8.83 ERA,  1.558 WHIP,  1.04 HR/9

(Bullpen is weak sauce after Jansen and Alvarez. Still hoping Vazquez straightens up and gets his WHIP to at least 1.200, but he's really up and down. German is coming close to putting it together, but his mistakes are doozies.)

He has a ton of players on Reserve which is skewing the numbers somewhat. Not saying his team is that much better, but it's not quite as bad.

Probably more valuable to still just use him as a starter for 15 starts or so.

You could ... Smith averaged less than 5 IP an outing, though. In WIS terms, he'd start throwing BP after about 75 pitches.

Has anyone played a 2B out of position at SS in this thing? Both Odor and Gordon will be in my starting lineup, but they both can't play 2B and I don't have a legit SS with Profar having to play 3B. Stupid Gallo not playing any 3B really put a kink in my plans.

IIRC the glove grades carry over but the range will be a D-

@Doug B @Koya

I have a similar issue at 1B where I have Canha and Desmond who I don’t think have played a ton of 1B. Chris Taylor is my 2Bman, he’s played more SS. Maybe we can trade.

Depending on what the grades are, might be better to put Profar at SS and then one of Odor/Gordon at 3B.  Man has Odor turned his season around for you.

does anyone even remotely have enough pitching here?  I've got 4 guys, 3 awful, between 100-150 innings pitched and I am just not in the mood to piece together a stinky staff again and again.  I had so much death, SP & RP.  I have some extra hitters.  Make an offer, don't, I am not going crazy.

A month ago, I was cruising with starting pitching, but then Trevor Bauer, Sean Manaea, and Marco Gonzales all went on IR. I'll have the innings, but will have probably eight guys starting at least some games. Meanwhile, I missed on about 2/3 of my RP picks, so that's an issue.

But I know that at least half our league is in worse shape than me.

One month later ... Odor's fielding % at 2B is .983. That will be an A+ glove in the sim. I'm thinking that at worst, Odor will be something like a C+/D+ 3B (range at 3B could be a little better than that, maybe).

Mine's pretty similar.

How do tandems work?  I have a 120 IP/38 GP Brad Keller and a 67 IP/20GP Drew Pomeranz. Can I frankenstein them into one SP?

Then I have:

126IP/22GP Lance McCullers

132.2 IP/28GP Matt Harvey

94 IP/18GP Aaron Sanchez

102 IP/19GP Marcus Stroman

65IP/13GP Brett Anderson

Basically every game I'm hoping for a five and dive performance and a strong showing from my bullpen, I guess. In theory there are 700 ####ty innings there but it's going to be awful.

I wonder if WIS is smart enough to handle the "opener" model. 2018 WIS - where every team is the Tampa Bay Rays.

I have enough innings but I have three starters, four guys who I can start, and a lot of good 1 inning guys. I have two good SS though if someone needs one of those.

I'll have Rosario and Segura, either I can trade

I have Polanco, Mallex Smith, and Nick Williams all I can move. 

I have Gsellman, Peacock, Knebal, Watson and Colome. 

Need RH OF bats and starting pitchers with QS.  I have SPs with innings like JZimm, Liriano, and Suter but I need a starter with 15+QS.  This won;t change so let me know if you're interested.  :bye:

You can do up to 4 sets of tandems. The biggest issue you'll have is that you can't set a pitch count lower than 40.

40 pitches * 41 games = 1600 pitches, which is 100-110 innings.  So you'd have guys getting worn out a bit too often to stick with the same 4 tandems all season. You'd had to rotate them in and out.

Then you run into issues where you can only carry 13 pitchers, so if you have 8 starters, you've only got 5 relievers. 

Keller is a good candidate for a tandem though given his low IP/G. Pomeranz probably isn't worth the effort.

So you could probably go

1 - Harvey

2 - Stroman

3 -McCullers

4- tandem Keller and Sanchez

Then every once in a while sub in Anderson for 1 of the top 3. The top 3 will only give you maybe 3-4 innings, but your bullpen gets a little rest on the Keller/Sanchez day.

Min. 40 pitches for your starter, so, sadly, no. WIS is still in the 80s. 

On the other hand, if you can get a good enough bullpen, having your starters go 40-50 pitches might work out well in this format.

After some careful consideration, Cameron Maybin sits atop my catcher depth chart. Bide your time.
