Bull Pen help

PostPosted: Sat Mar 27, 2010 9:40 am
Guys seeking advise on arranging my bullpen. Seeking Bull Pen advice. Playing in a 12 team on line leauge and having the following in my pen. A Bailey, Nathan, Marmol, Frasor, Calero, Betencourt, Thornton. Would you close with Bailey over Nathan and would you drop Marmol or Betancourt from the 25 man roster? thanks for the help!

My leauge carries a 40 man roster that you can call up in case of injuries. In a 12 team leauge. My starters are Linecum, Jimenez, Harren and Zito
and my 5th is Y Galldado. We use the DH

I would go with:

1st middle man Bailey slow hook
specialist vs rhp Frasor
2nd middle man Calero
1st set-up man Bailey
specialist vs lhp Thorton (but undo "avoid rhp", and undo "quick hook")
2nd set up man nathan (click don't come before 8th)
1st closer Nathan
2nd closer Bailey
closer vs lhp Thorton
closer vs rhp Frasor
2nd closer vs rhp Betancourt
1st mopup Betancourt
2nd mop-up Mr. X

where Mr.X would be the best SP/RP available. I think I would simply cut Marmol. gallardo has a better card than Zito, so he could rotate with Zito in an extended roster. If you have to limit your roster to 25 players, i would also downgrade Gallardo to the 40-men roster, and stick with 11 pitchers that would include a SP/RP used as a mop-up.

Went heavy on hitting at Great American Ballpark... Scrappy starters & relying on bullpen to carry the load...

Thank you

I am looking for advise for this years team. Starters are Lincecum/Jimenez/Lewis/Romero/G Gonzalez all *. I have Caupano as my S/R if I chose to go with 5 instead of 4 man rotation. My Bullepen is A Bailey/ Marmol/ Benoit/ Thornton/Lidge/Beantencourt
Would you go with 4 or 5 starters? Who would you have close? Set up? I have copied your instructions from last year. Thanks in advance!!!
