Liriano or Wood ?

Postby Surfs up » Wed May 07, 2008 8:09 am

I have Tulo on the DL. I need a replcement. Brandon Wood was just dropped in my league. I have Liriano in the minors. We can only keep one player in the minors. Even if he was active in the majors. My question is should I pick up Wood to replace Tulo? And if Wood gets sent back to the minors when Kendrick comes back do I drop Wood or Liriano? I have been holding off replcing Tulowiski hoping Ian Stewart comes up. Any chance that happens May 9th? I think thats the date that aloows teams to bring up players and add a year to the minor league service.

I wouldn't drop Liriano for Wood, play the hot hand waivers game instead.

No, keep Liriano, Wood's power numbers are impressive, but his contact rate scares me. This guy is striking out to much to warrant dropping Liriano for Wood.

I agree, waivers pick up until Tulo returns.

I'm not sure if Stewart will be called up. He hasn't hit well so far this season. I'd keep Liriano though. Wood is starting to look like a solid AAAA type of player.
Jody, Jody Davis. Hits 'em high and far. Jody, Jody Davis. He's a superstar. Holy Cow!!!!
