It is great that baseball is back in full swing. Here is my team:
C-Russell Martin SP-Derek Lowe
1b-Albert Pujols SP-Roy Halladay
2b-Aaron Hill RP-Joe Nathan
3b-Mark Reynolds RP-George Sherrill
SS- Derek Jeter RP-Brad Lidge
OF-Carlos Beltrán SP-Edinson Volquez
OF-Denard Span SP-Ricky Nolasco
OF-Nate McLouth SP-Randy Johnson
Util-Nyjer Morgan RP (DL'ed; but on bench) Trevor Hoffman
I had Kendrick in at 2b and he has been awful, should I give up on him yet? I picked up Jason Bartlett for Ubaldo today as I can't take another train wreck from him and don't know if he is for real or not. I picked him up late last year and he was decent for me. AROD is coming off the DL soon and I am hoping to package Mark Reynolds and an outfielder to upgrade elsewhere when that happens. For now, my questions involves pitching, whether to make a move, and if so, who to drop.
The pitchers available in FA are Wandy Rodriguez and Kyle Davies. I like what I have seen from both this year and liked Wandy last year too. My options to drop are Kendrick (want to see if he rebounds, a lot is expected from him this year and he has hit when given previous opportunities), Travis Snider (is he going to stay productive?, some say yes), Nyjer Morgan (high average, will it last? Not a lot of power, has steal potential), Randy Johnson has been dreadful and excellent already this season, I don't think I am considering Volquez or Nolasco just yet.
So, looking at my team, do you stand pat or do you pick up one or both of Wandy and Davies off the FA list, and if you pick one of them up, who do you drop to pick them up. Thanks so much for your thoughts. This team is a cellar dwellar right now and I am hoping to turn it around. Please leave a link and I will comment on yours.
