Is it time to just totally rid myself of Macpherson

Postby The Punisher » Tue May 17, 2005 6:49 pm

Ok Im in a keeper league and we keep 10 people at the end of the year and even though Macpherson might be a good player in the future he isnt going to do crap this year apparently. I mean hes hitting under the Mendoza Line and his other Mendoza buddy Quinlan has been getting the starts at 3rd lately so hes barely playing. Time to get rid of him, right?

If you are in a keeper league, you must hold on to Dallas! :-)

He will be fine eventually, just show a bit of patience and you will have another Hank Blalock on your roster next year.

well considering 12 teams ... with 10 keepers thats 120 players.
I can't see Dallas breaking the top 120 this season. He has the talent to so, sure, but he as gotten off to such a slow start, and with 3B bieng as deep as it is, unless you got a solid deal on him, Keeper wise, I see no reason to hang on to him.

I own him a keeper league for 4.00, (5.00 next season) so I am going to hang on a touch longer, maybe till the break, before I decide his fate.

In case you had not noticed the Angels are I believe in the last 20% of teams in runs scored in the Majors in the company of Cleveland, Oakland and the like...not a nice place to be obviously. McPherson has been more than just a little bad...he has been AWFUL.

If you are in a 10 team league keeping 10 (total 100 kept) I can't see Mcpherson cracking your keeper squad unless you have a pretty lousy team. In a 12 team league keeping 10 (120 total), it becomes a margial call as I doubt you really have 12 quality players on your squad and the last couple could be used reasonably for fliers.

With that list of players, I can't see McPherson ever getting the nod. No way I would keep him over anyone on that list. However, you might be able to package him up to a weak team along with someone like Hoffman for an equivalent closer who is younger. Maybe someone will bite and you can upgrade the a keeper age-wise fo rthe long haul.

You certainly have 10 other guys you can keep before McPherson, but this is assuming that there are not dollar values attached to each player. That would certainly change everything.
If you can stash him away, do so, but if he is taking up a valuable roster spot, cut him loose or package him in a deal as the Yanks said.

I'd hang onto him if I were you. I have had him riding my bench all season and I think he will get better as the season progresses.

He had 2 hits tonight to raise his avg to .230.

I think the kid is about to get on a roll.

I didn't like the kid as a fantasy contributor before the season and I don't like him now. In a 12 team league I'd dump him.
