The DL stash

Postby GotowarMissAgnes » Fri May 06, 2005 8:59 pm

OK, Borowski's coming off the DL, so I have to decide who I will stash there next. This is one of my best strategies--last year I grabbed AJ Burnett.

I'm looking through my options and Tim Salmon might be worth a shot. He could give some added offense and trade flexibility down the stretch.

But I'm also tempted to grab Rafael Soriano, who should make his return from TJ surgery. He might not add up to much this year, but if he looks good, could be someone to hold on to for next year.

Thoughts? Anyone else DL'd that you think is worth a stash?

i don't see anyone worth picking up -- but I agree that it is a very underrated strategy.

You could try trading for thome, bonds, frank thomas though. they come for very cheap prices.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

I picked up Rafael Soriano a while back and plan on keeping him for next year (dynasty league). Like you I picked up Burnett last year and that could pay off for years to come. I'm also thinking about J. Gerut. Not sure yet and Wood just took up my other spare DL spot so it can wait.
Good topic ;-D

I snagged JoBo and stashed on my DL.....when he comes back I think the best player on the DL is Bobby Crosby. He will start hitting in two weeks......hopefully by June we will see him again.

New update from Yahoo...Nevermind on Mr. Crosby

News
Athletics manager Ken Macha said injured SS Bobby Crosby has ''a long way to go yet,'' before he returns, according to the Associated Press. Crosby is on the disabled list with a stress fracture in his ribs, which occurred on opening day

I am starting to think that for this year (re-drafts) Bonds may not even be worth a spot. It is not looking too good for him.

Salmon is as done as Giambi and Williams...do not waste your time imo. R. Soriana is a very long shot to say the least and if that is the best option around, I would not bother.

Bengie Molina remains on the DL and I would grab him if you need a short term stash. Affeldt, D. Wells, Thomas if not owned already (Probably are though). W. Williams is another possibility.
