Zim is a better option. Maybe play Upton against batteries that can't control the running game. Once he gets 2b and OF eligibility he will have more value to you...and at that point Wiggy might have less value to you. You might prefer a solid 4th outfielder depending on how wiggington plays.
Wang's numbers did not impress me last year.
Some great insight, never thought about digging as deep as studying what batteries are prone to stolen bases. I think I'll give that a try. What do you project this year from Zimmerman, would it be too much to hope for 30 homers?
I think OF power and SS are my biggest weaknesses, I’m hoping Upton gets SS eligibility and performs so that I don’t have to start Lopez. I’ll probably cut Wang once he comes off the deal if I can’t package him for an upgrade somewhere. As you might be able to tell I like to have a bench deep in pitchers. I think people in fantasy focus too much on saves for relievers and don’t grab topnotch setup men to bolster their ERA, WHIP, and K’s. So I’m hoping Shields and Zumaya can do what they did last year, perhaps grabbin’ a couple dozen saves or so from Zumaya. Besides Webb, how else do my starters stack up?
