How important is starting pitching and closers in a league?

Really depends on settings and league depth, but generally I like to wait on pitching unless something falls into my lap unexpectedly.

I feel it's a lot easier to pick up solid pitching on free agency than hitting.

I've been big on pitching since I started playing a few years ago, but I definitely agree that it'll be easier to find pitching on the FA market. EVery year you'll get a few guys that come out of no where, and a few prospects that come from the minors and put up solid numbers.


Hanley's injury is going to be interesting. I was prepared to spend $35 or so to grab him in my keeper league, and me and the only other guy who didn't keep a SS both have a solid chunk of money to spend. Now I've gotta decide how much I'm willing to spend for 4-4.5 months of Hanley.

Pretty stacked pitching wise, but you may have some offensive issues. May want to trade Cliff Lee and a bat for a hitter and another SP to fill the spot

I put him on the trade block.

Was offered Chris Davis and Tommy Hanson for him..I don't know either guy. Saw Davis had a bunch of HR last year, but isn't ranked very high. I that fair deal at all?

Not at all. You could swap a guy like cliff for a decent bat. Davis isn't that great.

I had a feeling, it was a little shady, when I checked the rankings they had..lol

Looks like I will wait for more offers, or send out a few of my own

Just drafted an odd looking team in a 10-team league. My pitching is unreal, but my hitting is pretty suspect.

C: Victor Martinez, Miguel Montero
1B: Joey Votto, Paul Goldschmidt
2B: Jason Kipnis, Dan Uggla
3B: Mike Moustakas, Jedd Gyorko
SS: Elvis Andrus, Everth Cabrera
OF: Justin Upton, Bryce Harper, Desmond Jennings, Carlos Gomez, Ben Revere, Cameron Maybin

SP: Justin Verlander, Yu Darvish, Chris Sale, Yovani Gallardo, Edwin Jackson, Matt Garza, Marco Estrada, Hisashi Iwakuma
RP: Jim Johnson, Joel Hanrahan, Tom Wilhelmsen

Thoughts?
Just going to requote this to get more opinions. Some people say it's good balance, others tell me I absolutely did a great job, and others say I am going to be last in the league in every hitting category... so I don't know where I stand, haha.

Definitely think you could use some power in the offensive side of things.


Edit: on second thought, I actually think your team is pretty balanced. A lot depends on how upton doesn't
Yeah, I agree. I thought it came out pretty balanced. I sacrificed some power, but in the end if my hitting doesn't disappoint too much, my pitching is leagues better than everyone else.

I think it's pretty damn good...you've got a couple risks at C and 2B, but if they perform like they can, you should be in good shape, IMO

And honestly, IF you have an offensive issue, you have more than enough pitching to help fix that.
