WW Pkup in a Dynasty League

Postby powenM » Fri Mar 16, 2007 6:46 pm

I put this in the other forum too. But i wanted to get the opinion also of those who know there prospects. Here is my situation.

2 players will become available once the season start
(Do u know other quality ones?)

SSosa(not likely)
JHamilton(former cant miss prospect playing like it in the Spring)


I have a very young team for the most part & have the 4th priority for waivers. If i hold onto it theres a chance I may be able to get one more stud prospect not yet available on yahoo(but may get called up later). The first will probably be PHughes - which i hardly think i'll have a shot at(as the guy with the first pick is building his team with prospects).

Thus my question is do I wait or almost certainly get one of the 2 mentioned above?

And if i wait who should become available on yahoo this year.

Heres the details:

20Team Dynasty league

R HR RBI SB AVG OPS W SV K HLD ERA WHIP

My Team:

C Brian McCann, Chris Iannetta
1B James Loney, Ryan Shealy
2B Ryan Freel
SS Édgar Rentería, Khalil Greene, BWood
3B Álex Rodríguez
LF Scott Podsednik, Adam Lind
CF Curtis Granderson, Félix Pié
RF Álex Ríos, RChurch

SP Jason Schmidt, Brandon Webb, Jeremy Sowers, Ervin Santana, HSanchez
RP Brad Lidge, Mike MacDougal, Brandon League, Pat Neshek, Juan Salas
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Do not waste your WW position on Sosa. I haven't been on Yahoo! to see their player database for this season yet, but I've got to imagine that there are at least 4 good prospects that will become available this season...Hughes, Butler, Votto, Gallardo, Braun, (are they in the DB?)

No none of them are.

So hopefully I'll get one.

Id love to take a chance at Josh Hamilton but Im figuring someone with a worst WW priority will grab him b4 he becomes a FA.

I am personally taking a chance on Hamilton. I signed him yesterday as a free agent in my dynasty league. If he doesn't pan out so be it I still have Delmon Young, Cameron Maybin, Andrew McCutchen and other young up and coming studs. I just felt like taking a chance on what BA at one time considered the top prospect in all of baseball.

I would roll the dice on Hamilton. I think this talent is unreal. Even if you don't want him you can always trade him, with this kind of spring some one will give you something for him. At least he will be of some help to you this year.

Also Hunter Pence could come up if there's an injury/ sucky player for the Astros.
Between Hughes, Gallardo, Braun and pence I would say that is worth skipping over Sosa and Hamilton
