roster help

Postby jskidder » Mon Aug 25, 2003 5:27 pm

i'm in a pretty competitive 12 team h2h keeper league, and this is the last week before the playoffs. by our rules, my last day to add/drop a player is 8/31. there's not a lot on the wire, but do you see any dead weight that could go? i was thinking of adding carl crawford to lock up steals each week (most playoff teams are pretty weak there) or maybe even kahil green to stash away. should i make a move or stay where i'm at here?

What I would do is:

1. Drop Polanco (solid but you don't need him) and Burrell for Crawford and Day.
2. Promote Thomas to Util.

This gives your roster more versitility and also gives you another SP in case Harden continues to falter.

thanks for the input. i like that idea, but what about dropping nevin instead of polanco. that way i have a backup at 2b and 3b, and i can play him if i need a boost in avg. also, i was thinking of dropping willis for day instead of a hitter. i think he's worthless for the rest of the way and i don't intend to keep him.

js.......You could do that but the reason that I didn't mention that is because Nevin has a bigger upside and I wouldn't be playing Polanco at all. If he ain't gonna play, then he's gotta go. I wouldn't argue if you dropped Nevin but I would rather drop Polanco. It's my opinion that I don't keep many, if any, bench hitters.
