In Lineup F, Deitrich comes out for Upton or Hernandez when the righty killer pitcher comes out.

Platoon / Injury

 

Player Usage Limitations: 

 

Position by Position:

C: Pena plays against the Rightys, Susac against the Leftys.  Susac is a little better defensively, but you can double switch with them if you need to if the pitcher is throws from the opposite side as the starter did.

1B: Gonzalez plays every day.  Alonso is the injury backup.

2B: Cano starts against all but two leftys that crush lefties.  Never comes out when he is in the game, and will finish the games he doesn’t start when the lefty crusher comes out.  Hernandez and Dietrich in order are the injury replacement guys.

SS: Reyes starts versus the rightys, Mercer versus the leftys. Mercer is much better defensively, but they both hit much better one way.  If we are behind and your pitcher has changed sides, might need to make the switch, if ahead, we will want to see Mercer in the game.

3B: Sandoval starts versus the Rightys, Uribe against the Leftys.  Uribe is more balanced and better defensively so err on having him in if you are unclear. 

OF: Lagares, and Harper play all the time, but we use three guys in left field to make up for it. Other Upton starts against most Rightys, with Dietrich against Rightys if we Must Bat Left.  Hernandez starts against the Leftys.

The back end of the bullpen is as good as you are going to find, the challenge will be to get there with a lead. There is not an ACE on the staff, but all five of these cards are solid.  Game plan is to get them through 6 innings either tied or ahead.  That’s the plan. Casilla, Socolovich, and Morin can help get a key out in the 5th or 6th.  Starters come out in dots if it is still a game, but get us four innings at least if they get blown out early.  If they become tired in the 4th or after, they come out then.  If not in dots, will try to pitch 6 innings unless they need STOPPER help from Casilla, Socolovich, or Morin to get to the Big 3.  Starters only pitch in the 7th with a comfortable lead or way behind and scheduled to hit in the bottom of the 7th.


Miller

Try to get 6 IP out of him.  If we are in the game, the big 3 finish it up.  If we aren’t he can stay longer.  See above for my thoughts on pitchers this year.

Volquez

See Miller for the Plan.  He is a bit better v Leftys, and his BB to Rightys may hurt him.

Hammel

See Miller for the Plan.  A very good card except for HRs to Rightys.  If the bases are empty when he hits them, he is going to win games.  If they are all 3 run shots, it will be ugly.

Gallardo

See Miller for the Plan.  He will walk a few too many, but you will have to get the RBIs on your own card. 

Happ

Bob will manage him once, I get the other 9.  This guy would be good if his father had taught him to throw with the right (correct) hand.  Alas, he’s a lefty.  Card is good enough, we will see if the lefty crushers crush him.

Specific innings limitations:

None.

Additional comments: 

All these guys come out in dots if it is still a game.  If we’re blown out early, the starter can go.   

BULLPEN: Don’t fall behind this team (you probably won’t).  If we lead after 6 IP, use two of Giles, Ziegler, and Jansen for the last 9 outs.  Casilla and Morin in blowouts, but hopefully they will mostly get a batter here and there to get us to the big 3.


Jansen

52 IP

Killer Closer, balanced.  You can homer off his card, but 15x more likely to K. Will get plenty of 6 out saves.

Ziegler

68 IP

Killer Closer #2.  Especially a R killer, better than Jansen to get three rightys out for a save.  Lots of GBA on his card make up for few K’s.

Giles

70 IP

Strong Set Up. Balanced and no beef.  And 70 innings.

Casilla

58 IP

Stopper vs Right.  Left side of his card blew out this year, but he has a role to get by one or two rightys (or a string) midway through the game. He should NOT face a lefty with men on unless we are already blown out.

Socolovich

30 IP

Screwball Righty, Stopper vs Left.  Gets us through the tough leftys, can face the righty in a string of leftys.  Mostly pitches to get out of a jam and turn it over to the big 3.

Morin

35 IP

Mid/Set.  A little better vs the lefty, can go 2 innings if starter is blown out early..

 Additional comments:

 

Starters mop up if we are blown out. Giles, Ziegler, and Jansen are better than the starters so let them bring it home if we are ahead.
