Liabilities for the second half? Drop Votto for Pence?

Postby goodtowner » Tue Jul 15, 2008 11:12 pm

Hello, Rookie here,
I'm playing Yahoo Roto. Just wondering who might be my obvious liabilities for the last half of the season. I can drop and add at will. 22 players per team in a 12 team league. I'm 7th at the moment. Looking at the Votto for Pence move. Points are hits, runs, hrs, rbis, sbs, avg, and ip, w, sz, k, whip, era. Thanks for the replies.

Thanks for the replies. Crunchin' the #'s based on last month's performances I dropped Matsui, Blake, and Young. Replaced with DeJesus, Adam Jones, and Pence. Good? Bad? Delgado's been hot and is up for grabs, but he's so streaky. I don't know if the switch for Kotchman or Votto in the 1B position is worth it. I have a DL spot that doesn't count against me, I may just hold out to see if Damon comes back swingin', but good idea. Any other DLer's that might be better to grab and hold till they recover?

Percival is coming back soon and so is Chris Young (pitcher). Carmona, Jenks, Zimmerman, and Wainwright too. Carpenter and Lowry might be back some time this year too :-b

I'd grab either Delgado or LaRoche if they are available; both are better options than Kotchman in my opinion.

I'm not a huge Adam Jones fan yet because he doesn't steal enough to make up for his lack of power. Get whatever you can from him though.
