Wandy and Adam Jones are FAs???

Postby dillonlockwood » Thu May 27, 2010 3:35 pm

Wandy Rodriguez, Andy Pettitte, Ervin Santana, Adam Jones, Hunter Pence, Rickie Weeks and Rafael Furcal are all free agents in my league! It's a 10-team league and I don't know why so many fantastic players have been dropped. I'm sitting on this team right now:

C - Rod Barajas
1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Chone Figgins
3B - Alex Rodriguez
SS - Elvis Andrus
OF - Carl Crawford
OF - Carlos Lee
OF - Carlos Quentin
Util - Stephen Drew
BN - Ryan Doumit
BN - Howie Kendrick
BN - Andre Ethier

SP - Adam Wainwright
SP - Felix Hernandez
SP - Jon Lester
RP - Ryan Franklin
RP - Matt Lindstrom
P - Tyler Clippard
P - Francisco Liriano
P - Tim Hudson
BN - Hiroki Kuroda
BN - Brian Matusz
DL - Brandon Webb

I'm also in 7th place. There are so many things that I can do right now, I just need help deciding what. Here are the options that make some sense:
1) Drop Drew for Furcal
2) Drop Matusz for Wandy
3) Drop Quentin for Jones
4) Drop Kendrick for Weeks
If I did all of that and Ethier/Webb were back, just to give us an idea of what it would look like:

C - Rod Barajas
1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Chone Figgins
3B - Alex Rodriguez
SS - Elvis Andrus
OF - Carl Crawford
OF - Adam Jones
OF - Andre Ethier
Util - Rafael Furcal
BN - Rickie Weeks
BN - Carlos Lee
BN - Ryan Doumit

SP - Adam Wainwright
SP - Felix Hernandez
SP - Wandy Rodriguez
RP - Matt Lindstrom
RP - Ryan Franklin
P - Jon Lester
P - Francisco Liriano
P - Tim Hudson
BN - Hiroki Kuroda/Tyler Clippard (drop one when Webb comes back)

I think that looks amazing, but it's all on paper. I would like to think that I know what I'm talking about with Fantasy Baseball, but with so many great players as FAs I don't know what to think! Quentin, Drew and Kendrick aren't even terrible players. Thanks for your input, I will be glad to talk to you about your team or league as well.

Drop Kendrick and get Pence now. I like Pence over Carlos Q going forward but stash Carlos and drop a Catcher. That's a waste of a spot.
Don't touch W. Rodriguez.
Do pick up Santana.
I'm not high on Figgins in that Seattle lineup but don't dump him now. His upside is still better than Weeks.

Don't hold your breathe waiting on Webb. I'd drop him for someone like Bedard or Happ who are on the DL and could give you something. Webb hasn't pitched in over a year and he's no where close.
