Is Marte Worth Keeping

Postby 7Gold » Wed Jun 18, 2003 4:23 pm

Here's my full lineup:

C Posada, Jorge
1B Giambi, Jason
2B Kent, Jeff
3B Mueller, BIll
SS Furcal, Rafael
OF Giles, Brian
OF Sosa, Sammy - corked
OF Pierre, Juan
Util Gonzalez, Juan
Bench Hunter, Tori
Bench Jone, Jacque
Bench Baldelli, Rocco
Bench Varitek, Jason
Bench Ensberg, Morgan

Bench Oswalt, Roy - DL
Bench Contreras, Jose - DL
SP Martinez, Pedro
SP Meche, Gil
SP Baez, Danys
RP Williams, Mike
RP Politte, Cliff
RP Marte, Damaso
RP Donnelly, Brandon
P Nelson, Jeff
SP Nomo, Hideo
SP Webb, Brandon

With Contreras and Oswalt out indefinately, I'm feeling the need for another starter. Should I drop Marte for a starter, or someone else.

On the FA wire is:

Ryan Franklin
Joe Nathan
CC Sabathia
Mark Redman
Jae Seo

Who should I drop, who should I pickup???

if you need whip and era, but not for saves. i think he is 3rd for the chisox's closer role. Koch-Gordon being the first. look for nelson or valverde. :-t

Since when is Oswalt out indefinitely? He's supposed to miss one more start and be ready to go when he gets off the DL on the 27th. The groin will still be a nagging problem, but he is certainly not "out indefinitely"

I've seen posts on this very website that say injuries like this linger and could be on again, off again the whole year. And, I've heard talk about surgery needed after the season, all of which doesn't give me a good feel about Oswalt in general. I'm not going to drop him or do something drastic, but I'm not confident he's going to be the stud I thought he was when I drafted him.

I'd drop Marte and pick up Franklin. Koch has an era somewhere around 1.15 for his last 10 games. Seems to have figured it out, which makes Marte worthless. Franklin has pitched well and Seattle will provide run support.

Keep Marte or not? Make your decision on what his ERA and WHIP and K ratios will do for you because he won't be getting saves. The closer situation is no longer up for grabs as Koch has laid down the gavel.

Marte is practically worthless. He doesn't get you any wins or saves. The only thing he can give you is a fairly low ERA a decent whip and an occasional K. So, drop him and pick up Franklin.

I would grab Seo and CC, and drop Marte and Donnelly.
