I was a homer when I drafted Matsui and now other than sucking up the 2B position, he is now hurt again too. My team starts a 2B and a MI each day and all I have are Hill and Matsui but an thinking about dropping Matsui for Asdrubal Cabrera who has been hot in the last week. He is the best available MI in this 12 team league. I am even thinking about dropping Matsui for another OF like Fowler or Duncan or even Catcher Buck? I can also probably drop a RP or two but which one(s)?
Here's my teams info: 12 team H2H Yahoo Redraft league with 5x5 scoring. Start C,1B,2B,3B,SS,IF,MI,CI,RF,CF.LF,OF,UT, SP,SP,RP,RP,P,P,P Current Roster with probably starting positions: C:Martin 1B: Pujols 2B: Hill 3B: Reynolds SS: Perralta CI: Fielder MI: K. Matsui IF: Dunn LF: Lind CF: Kemp RF: Pence OF: Ny Morgan UT: Adam Jones BN: ConnorJackson, Wieters SP: Oswalt, Billingsley, Sanchez RP: Valverde, Morrow, Percival P: Weaver, Zimmerman, Motte, Street(Corpas is a FA)
I'd make the swap. Asdrubel is nothing special, but he's getting on base and the plate discipline, albeit in a small sample size, is encouraging. You should check to see if any of these guys are available as well: Fontenot, Casilla, Aybar. Each are available on different WW, and I'd rank them in that order, sliding in Cabrera right after Casilla.
Out of the three you mentioned, only Aybar is available. Casilla is taken but Castillo(NYM) is available. I favor Cabrera over Castillo due to Cabrera hitting 9th before the beginning of the order while Castillo is hitting 8th before the pitcher.
What if I dropped Matsui and just left that position empty while Picking up Fowler or Duncan? Or should I drop Matsui for Cabrera and then drop a RP for Fowler or Duncan?
Don't know much about Asdrubal Cabrera, so i can't really comment. I'd probably go after Fowler or Duncan (chris duncan, right?) If you think you need the steals, go after Fowler ... he's doing pretty well.
I would swap out Corpas for Street. Just don't see him getting it done in Colorado (or anywhere really). I think Street either losed his job outright, or gets moved at the deadline. Either way Corpas is the guy come crunch time.
Not sure about the 2B situation. I guess Cabrera is better. Tough call.
