Fantasy Playoffs: Post your Lineup Conundrums Here!

posted by Pauly
Today is the first day of the fantasy baseball playoffs in my league....and before you go all Jim Mora on me -- this is a 14-team H2H league. We are playing the first round this week, and 4 teams will advance to face the 4 teams that earned byes through their regular season performance. Next week begins a traditional 8-team playoff, with the World Series being (fittingly) a three-week series.

Needless to say, lineup choices in this league are second only to having great players in its importance. You must set your lineup for the week on Monday, and you are set in stone until Sunday and you advance or are vanquished. Thus, since everything is riding on these lineup choices (for me, anyway), I figure there are plenty more of you out there in the same situation.

So here is your forum. Got a tough lineup choice? Not sure if you should go with a two-start Tommy Hunter or a one-start Jake Westbrook? Jon, Andre and I are here to help. Just post your difficult playoff lineup decisions in the comments section below and one of us (probably me) will give you some "expert" advice. I will check this post regularly, and hey, it's a lot less hectic than trying to get one of those ESPN hacks to read one of your fantasy questions and actually answer it.

Good luck to all of you you fellow playoff teams this week. If you are curious, I'm the fifth seed this season, meaning I am the best team to not get a bye, which kinda sucks :)

Looking forward to helping you out! -Pauly

My H2H league's playoffs don't start for a few weeks. I'll check in with a q or two at that time... I might be in a situation where I have to choose between David Wright and A-Rod at 3rd. Although, at the moment that's an easy decision. ;-)

A lot of fantasy owners are dealing with the A-Rod conundrum now. I advised one friend in a deep 12 team mixed league to grab the scalding hot Will Betemit this week.

I'm in a H2H daily league. Playoffs started yesterday and I'm getting crushed early. I have had an issue with starting either Miguel Tejada or Starlin Castro. It is a keeper league. Pretty much everything in me tells me to start Castro every time but its tough in a daily league....any thoughts??? thanks

I'm sorry I'm just getting to your question Doug. Right now I'd stick with Castro.
