FANTASY BASEBALL STRATEGY:
THE HYBRID RP/SP (2014)
BEAST DOME NATION.
Every season when you go into your draft, you have to decide. You have to decide if you are going to punt saves for the extra Starting Pitcher who qualifies at Relief. The advantages of this are very simple.
1) More Starts.
2) More Strikeouts.
3) More Wins.
The risk factor is, you are giving up on Saves. You could also be jepoardizing your WHIP and ERA if you do not do this strategy correct. But the true question is. Is it worth it to go with this strategy in 2014?
THE HYBRID RP/SP
Before we go into this years candidates, there is one Rule. If your league has a MAX INN pitch limit. This strategy is not for you. It does not make sense to take away Closers from your team for less Quality Starting Pitchers. You use starts wisely and always maximize the best starting Pitchers you can. At the same time, have dependable Closers on your team who you know will get you those crucial saves.
Let us meet the candidates of this seasons best RP/SP.
TONY CINGRANI – CIN
Cingrani is a strikeout machine. He is the type of pitcher who can get 10-12Ks if he is on absoulte fire. To get this from a Relief Pitcher is HUGE. He will also be a good candidate for Wins and a low ERA/WHIP.
MICHAEL WACHA – STL
Wacha came into the 2013 season very late, and proved right away to be more than a solid starting pitcher as he racked up an ERA in the 2.50 range while pitching in crucial playoff games for the Cardinals. Wacha is going to give you a decent amount of Strikeouts to remain relevant at the position, but the upside really remains in his ability to get Wins.
ANDREW CASHNER – SD
Cashner is a little inconsistent when it comes to Strikeouts and Wins. He is a pitcher who will dominate at home, but struggle more often than he should on the road. The Padres team this season is not ready to be the type of team that consistently gives their starters run support. Cashner is not HORRIBLE, but he is not a pitcher you can depend on a consistent basis.
HECTOR SANTIAGO – LAA
Hector Santiago goes so late in drafts, you can almost walk into this strategy without even trying. Santiago is a Strikeout Machine who also pitches with a very good ERA in the low to mid 3.00 range. Now that he is going to get run support on a consistent basis, Santiago remains a very high upside pitcher who could be “Must-Start” material at times. He is a great late round target and you can read more about him here.
ALEX WOOD – ATL
Alex Wood remians a very nice high upside pitcher for the Braves. With all of their starters going down like flies this Spring Training, Alex Wood becomes that much more important. The Braves offense ranks as one of the best in the National League, which means Wood should be getting the run support he needs. As long as he can remain sharp and pickup 4-6 Ks per start with no problem. Wood makes for a great late option for this strategy.
BRETT ANDERSON – COL
The true Sleeper that only the VIPs know about. This is my little gift to you if you read this far. Brett Anderson comes into the 2014 season as one of the best sleepers. He has always been one of the league leaders in ERA, but injuries has always tore him down. This season Anderson comes in 100% healthy and is already having a good Spring. While the Risk Factor of Coors Field is always a concern, he will still always be a solid start when he is on the road. Anderson goes very late and if he can pitch anywhere close to as good as he has been over his career, Anderson will give you some very strong Fantasy Numbers.
GARRETT RICHARDS – LAA
Richards has always been a bit overrated in my eyes. People think next Jered Weaver, that is pushing it in my opninon. Richards will give you some strong starts here and there, but there are other starts where he will give up 4+ ER before the 5th INN. Richards does remain a very nice late target if you want to do this strategy.
TYSON ROSS – SD
Tyson Ross was very flukely last season. First he was a pitcher you wanted to load your bats up against, then late last season he turned into a pitcher who was close to unhittable at times. Ross is going to have a lot of ups and downs in his career, way more downs. With the ability of the Padres offense to score runs in 2014, I would not be surprised if Ross won less than 10 games. Picking him as a Starter when to Start could be tricky. I would go ahead and skip on Ross unless you are doing this strategy.

My first full season as a Beastdome.com VIP with Muntradamus was a total success. I finally won a fantasy baseball championship!!!
Muntradamus was there to help me every step of the way this season. Draft day (the most nerve wracking day of the season for me) Muntradamus had a plan(Chris Davis!!!!!!!!!!!), and was there to guide me through every pick via Skype screen sharing. This VIP feature is worth the price of the entire VIP package to me. After draft day I felt very comfortable with the team he helped me build.”
With Muntradamus’ help i always felt reassured that I was making the right moves with my team. The inevitability of player injuries is there every season, and you need to quickly grab replacements that will keep your season’s momentum going. I had a few key players get injured over the course of the season. Muntradamus was pretty much always available through Skype chat to help me keep my team strong. I find that the hardest aspect of playing daily fantasy baseball is deciding which players on your team can be waived for those replacements that will make your team better. For the second season in a row he helped me grab a few crucial speed guys down the final stretch of the season in order to gain ground in stolen bases. This ultimately won me my championship.
I really can’t praise him enough for his help. Muntradamus is clearly obsessed with playing fantasy sports, and helping me win a championship became his obsession as well.
THANK YOU, “MUNTS”!!!
