Should I make this move?

Postby minter » Fri Mar 14, 2008 9:19 pm

This is my current offense for 12 team, 5x5, H2H Yahoo League.

C - JR. Towels
1b - Derek Lee
2b - Ian Kinsler
3b - Miguel Cabrera
SS - Rafael Furcal
IF - Adam Laroche
OF - Carlos Beltran
OF - Lance Berkman
OF - Vernon Wells
OF - Nick Swisher
Util - Kelly Johnson
Bnch - Jay Bruce

My question pertains to whether i should drop someone and pick up Michael Bourn to boost my steals?
I was thinking maybe dropping Laroche then moving Swisher to IF and making Bourn my 4th OF. Or should i drop Jay Bruce? Or should I leave everything as is.

Also, should I replace my 5th SP Bronson Arroyo with Shaun Marcum? My other SP's are Lackey, Smoltz, Kazmir and Brett Myers. Any other SP's that are probably floating around that i should look at?

I don't see a glaring need for steals on your team - you have pretty well rounded guys. I don't think you should drop a guy that can hit for power in favor of Bourn. With that said, it all depends on how high you are on Bruce. I personally would stay pat.

I don't think you can really go wrong either way, but, if it were me, I would drop LaRoche, move Swisher to IF and pick up Bourn. With him, Beltran, Kinsler, and Furcal, you should be able to compete in steals. I think you've got enough power with Cabrera, Beltran, Berkman, Lee and Swisher.
