Dumping Hanson For Playoff Stretch: Add 1 of These? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Thu Aug 30, 2012 1:10 pm

I think Tommy Hanson needs to be dropped... he's only been a liability, and not one I want to carry into the playoffs.

I'm considering these players as a replacement on the roster... which one fits my team the best?

-Mike Fiers
-Ron Belisario
-Eric Stults
-Ben Revere

I like Cashner. I think he'll be a nice guy to have during the playoffs. I currently have him on my DL and will drop Hanson when he's activated.

Fiers may be getting shut down. So I wouldn't expect much from him. Cashner is the only other guy that I would even consider.

How did you put this team together if you could only keep 6 of these guys from last year? Amazing. I'd go with Cashner over Hanson for the stretch run.

Your SP is amazing, I would dump him for a quality RP help like Belisario. If you want another arm and not a closer Cashner.

You really don't need pitching IMO. Pick up Ben Revere, who will be an excellent bench player/replacement, providing you with R, SB and .AVG.

I would pick up a RP or probably Ben Revere to help with steals, it doesn't look like you need much help with your SP, if you are concerned with your pitching staff in the playoffs, just go for pure amount of starts that you can get, pick up the 2 start pitchers that week, that way you are assured of to win IP category, and most likely to win the K's and W's, and with your line up that should be enough to beat everyone in your league.
