Need advice / opinions on what RP's to keep

ViagraPowerballzViagraPowerballz New MemberRegistered Users 45 Posts
I've amassed too many players and the game is getting bogged down, so now I need trade in my inactives and have no idea who to keep for RP's. My team is pretty much loaded except for RP's, which are all 4.5*'s. I'm more interested in performance vs. human players as opposed to computer. My current setup does good on auto play, but I haven't personally hit against many of them so any advice on who to keep from the list below would be gently appreciated.

RP's available (No 5 stars...)

Current LR-Kevin Quackenbush R 8/4/9 SR
Current RP1-Tyler Clippard R 8/4/9 SR
Current RP2- Joe Smith R 6/6/9 SR
Current SM-Jason Grilli R 9/6/8 SR
Current CL-Joaquin Benoit R 8/5/9 SR

Benched:
-Aaron Sanchez R 5/8/9 LR
-Jean Machi R 5/8/9 SR
-Huston Street R 6/7/9 SR
-Luke Gregerson R 6/7/9 SR
-Darren O'Day R 7/6/9 SR
-Andrew Miller L 9/3/9 SR
-Neil Ramirez R 9/3/9 SR
-Craig Kimbrel R 9/3/9 SR
-Brad Boxberger R 9/3/9 SR
-Tommy Hunter R 5/9/8 SR
-Buddy Carlyle R 5/9/8 MR
-Sergio Romo R 7/8/8 SR
-Jonathan Papelbon R 6/8/8 SR
-Jake McGee L 9/6/8 SR
-Francisco Rodriguez R 8/6/8 SR
-David Carpenter R 8/6/8 SR
-Steve Cishek R 9/5/8 SR

    Definitely replace Joe Smith. He doesn't throw hard and is very hittable. Haven't had enough experience with your inactive RP's to recommend his replacement.

    What device are you using? I'd hate to see you lose all those pitchers and be stuck with the same 5. There might be a solution

    I'm using a new LG G4 droid. I may have exaggerated a bit as I'm still able to make swaps, look at my roster, and I'm not crashing all of the time. However, it's showing the signs of trouble (occasional slow frame-rate/lag during pitches and increased lock ups). I'm scared to acquire too many more players as I'd hate to get to the point where it's unplayable.

    I think I may have found some decent keepers, but you're 100% right that it sux to not be able to keep a roster full of options.

    If you get the chance pick up a Samsung tablet, you won't be disappointed. I have a app called 360 security, it cleans junk files and the cache. Works great. But with your roster I'd have Neil Ramirez and Francisco Rodriguez in my line up. What's your new team name?

    Dixie Normous* (with the *). Was going to get my team up to par before I threw my hat into the ring of greatness lol. I need a few more upgrades but overall my team is pretty well set. Actually, my RP's are my only non 5*a now and I think the team is better overall the the Powerballz were.

    I have another question reference SP's that I am sure many of you are familiar with. I am limping along with my 350+ inactives as long as I can, but time is coming where I may need to figure out the best 5* SP's to keep. (I somehow have managed to not get any 5* relievers through countless draft picks so the original post advice is still needed and appriciated as well...). Here's what I have:

    Current Starters (Mainly due to tourney games)
    Chris Sale L 9/8/9
    Johnny Cueto R 7/6/9
    Jose Fernandez R 9/5/9
    Clayton Kershaw L 9/9/9
    Felix Hernandez R 7/9/9

    -Madison Bumgarner L 7/9/8
    -Jon Lester L 7/8/8
    -Cole Hamels L 7/6/8
    -Yu Darvish R 9/4/8
    -Jordan Zimmermann R 6/9/7
    -Hisashi Iwakuma R 5/9/7
    -Jeff Samardzija R 6/8/7
    -Max Scherzer R 8/6/7

    I personally think Darvish and Lester are harder to hit in comparison to Kershaw and Cueto, but I need to keep a lineup that works good vs. computer as well. Not sure if having so many Lefties is advantageous either. Through browsing the forums, I see tons are ditching Kershaw, but I don't think I could let him go tbh.

    Hopefully I can limp this out until I get a table that can support all of my inactives and this will become a non issue.

    Remove Kershaw. Use Duffy vs the computer and Darvish vs Humans. If you can get a Samsung its the way to go. I have over 1,000 inactives which is all the players in the game less one. No hang ups

    Guess I'll go that rout. I pretty much have all 4* and up minus the RP's. Now I see that there are duplicate players on the draft wheels so my theory of holding onto a bunch of players seems like a bad strategy. Can't believe with 475+ on bench, paying for countless #1 DP's as well as the RP picks and not (1) 5*RP to show for it. Talk about bad luck! Oh well. Will keep going till I either get the tablet of I cant log in. No way I'm going to trde this bunch of players away, duplicates or not!

    Thank you all for all the feedback and feel free to throw a challenge my way @ dixie normous*

    I know this is an older forum but try using Aaron Sanchez in your LR slot. He is the highest rated LR in the game and does very well for me in that position.

    I'm rolling with Crail Kimbrel as a reliever. Joe Smith gives up a lot of hits. Move Joaquin Benoit to a rp and Clippard around SM. I also like boxberger for a inning not much more. grilli is ok but kimbrel to me is better. You can use him as the closer

    i've been hearing good things about Aaron Sanchez over on the TSB15 forums lately. never had him personally though. seems like he'd be pretty good if you're starter gets shelled early or have a game go into extra innings.

    Yeah I posted the same thing over there so I figured I'd hit up this forum too in order to liven things up for whoever is playing 2014 still. You are exactly right
