Chan Ho Park available - Acquisition Option Question

Postby 84' Tigers » Mon May 13, 2002 4:34 pm

I hope everyone's weekend went well. I have an interesting dillemma and would welcome your opinions.

Chan Ho Park pitched Saturday against the mighty Tigers and secured the win. He is available in my league as a free agent. Most preseason rankings had Park in the top 25. I am currently considering adding him, but am uncertain if it is wise. I am leaning towards dropping either Appier, Tomko, or Duckworth in that order.

Am I of sane mind or should I stand pat?

Eliminate a BOMBING @Oakland and Appier has had a good year. Tomko is playing over his head right now. He is off to a great start, but he hasn't won more than 7 games since 1998. I am currently riding his wave, b/c I own him in one of my leagues. However, Park is playing on a team that will win (when healthy) and has had past success. Although his past success was in pitcher friendly Dodger Stadium. Don't even touch Duckworth. He is stud material, just watch. I wish I still owned him. I bailed early and I now regret it. :-o

I really don't like dropping any of them, but I would rather own Park than Tomko. If he is healthy, he has more upside than Tomko. But, watch Tomko pitch tonight and see for yourself. I love my Direct TV MLB package. I can watch and evaluate everynight! Good luck!

I'm out! ;-D
Go Hokies!

Top 25 preseason? Hmm... another case where I disagree strongly with a ranking (Ok, rankings are easy targets. In fact, I'll probably start disagreeing with the just-posted minor league rankings around five minutes from now).

Anyway, in roto, I'd stand pat, while in an h2h league with an emphasis on wins, I'd probably grab Park and drop Appier. mktgteach is right, though - if Tomko shows signs of cooling down, he might become the odd man out.
