Horrific luck ranging from wrong choices on prospects (maybe that’s just bad GM’ing) to TJs to a boating death have taken its toll on the Singers, so this year is going to be a little rough.  We’ll still play the games and battle it out for whatever wins we can pull off!  Good luck

Hitter/Platoon/Substitution Instructions:
CTony Wolters plays against most Rys, but comes out for a Ly reliever.  Wellington Castillo plays against Lys and those Rys where you need to bat Ry.  He does not come out unless it’s the 9th and your Ry closer makes some available PHer look better via “compare”Note also that Wolters has only 205 ABs.  I will monitor his usage closely at home, but I think I will be ok as he only starts against 30 of the 57 listed opposing starts.  Go ahead and remove him from blowouts though. 
1B:  Brandon Belt plays all day every day and does not come out.  4 options (use “compare”) if injury.

2B:    DJ Lemahieu plays all day every day and does not come out.  Drury or Solarte if injury.

SS:   Aledmys Diaz plays all day every day and does not come out.   Duffy (if Ly pitcher) or O’Malley (if Ry) if injury.  For both Diaz here, and for Solarte below, both have “3” injury ratings.  If applicable, the injury subs should drop down to the 8th batting position with everyone else moving up.

3B:  Matt Duffy plays v Lys (and late defense), and Yangervis Solarte plays against Rys.  Feel free to swap them out for each other, as needed, unless we are way up and Duffy’s glove keeps him in.  Solarte if injury to Duffy, and if Solarte gets injured, then Duffy v Ly and Drury can move in from the OF if a Ry.

OF:  Curtis Granderson plays CF all day every day and does not come out.  Nick Markakis plays RF v Rys (and late defense), and Domingo Santana plays RF v Lys.  OK to switch out Markakis for Santana if a Ly reliever comes in (because I would still have Conforto for later), but be judicious about removing Santana if you still have unused Ly relievers available.   Brandon Drury plays LF most of the time, but you can PH for him late against a Ly reliever if “compare” shows a good advantage.  Michael Conforto plays LF when you must bat lefty, and he is also a PH.  He does not ever play against a lefty.

Util:  Shawn O’Malley is not very good at anything, but he covers lots o’ positions.

Late Defense:  Don’t worry about defensive replacements at C, 1B, 2B and SS.  Duffy can come in late at 3B.  Best OF is Santana in LF, Granderson in CF (even with his +2 arm), and Markakis in RF.  Subs come in mainly in the 8th and 9th, but can be as early as the 7th if we have a good lead.

Starters: All starters are thanked and excused when they fall into dots.
Julio Teheran (20 starts) goes long and hard, but you can hit for him in the 8th or 9th if we are losing.
Alex Fernandez (20 starts) is in the some patience category.  Try to get 6 innings out of him, but his 27 OB versus lefty hitters means you have to go batter-by-batter in the 7th and later.  Don’t let a string of lefty hitters beat him late in a close game.  OK to hit for him in the 7th or later if we are losing.
Zach Davies (20 starts) is also a “some patience” starter.  It would also be nice to get 6 innings from him.  OK to hit for him in 7th or later if we are losing.
Aaron Nola (17 starts) is a quicker hook, especially with heavily right-handed lineups.  Batter-by-batter beginning in the 6th.  Not worth letting him pitch the 6th or 7th if all righties are do up.  OK to PH for him from the 6th on.  I don’t think it will arise as an issue, but 7 innings max for Nola, and he will have many games where he doesn’t get 6 innings in.  17x7=119 which is over his 111 limit, but I will monitor with my home games – I expect he will have a bunch of 5 innings or less outings with that card.

Swingmen:  
Seth Lugo (6 starts).  He has 64 innings: 6 starts with max 6 innings limit equals 36, giving him the other 28 innings to be a 9th inning only co-closer and only if we are winning.
Alex Wood (7 starts).  He is the only lefty and will only start at home, so all you need to know is that you can use him in relief as the 2nd lefty and only for 1-2 batters as he will only have 11 innings left after his starts.  Lefty gets the righty out better.

Bullpen:

Unless Lugo or Wood is starting in your series, you will have 8 bullpen pitchers with well over 400 available innings.  However, each pitcher has an Achilles heel so there will be the need to pile up the total number of relievers used in each game.  Most cannot face multiple righties or lefties (as the case may be), so the “2 of 3” or “3 of 5” rule applies if I am still in the game.  By definition it will mean 3-4 relievers per game if the starters don’t get me to the 8th.

Closer:

In addition to Lugo (above) this year’s closer is the snail paced Pedro Baez (74 innings).  He can come into the 8th inning as well if needed.  However, if you are BAG, LAN, SCT or CHI, then consider going with Lugo or Broxton or Treinen (or a combo) in the 9th.

Setup:

Blake Treinen (67 innings) is fairly balanced albeit with a “base-on-balls” problem.  I like him to eat up innings versus predominantly righty lineups.  His 5 diamond HRs versus lefties is something to minimize in parks with a 10 or greater HR rating versus lefties.

R’y gets the L’y setup:

Corey Knebel (33 innings) I envision him regularly coming in, at any time in the game, to get 2-3 lefties.  But he is horrible against righties, so don’t let multiple righties hit against him.  And his innings limit means he never pitches more than 1 inning.

R’y gets the R’y setup:

Jonathan Broxton (61 innings) is tough on righties.  His walks combined with the +7 hold means he should see a minimum of lefty batters.

The Lys:

Felipe Rivero (77 innings) is the main Ly reliever and he comes in for an inning or more, but primarily against righty hitters (lefty gets the righty out, but he is not good against lefty hitters).  Same instruction for Alex Wood (see above) but he is also not for lefty batters.  We have no Loogy.

Long/Mop:

Fernando Salas (74 innings) has decent OB numbers, but the long ball problem prevents him from being involved late in small parks.

Good luck and great to see you all again in PS!
