Postby REBEL5 AC » Sun Mar 27, 2011 11:35 pm

Also, any tips as to my depth would help. Thanks.

Drop Wieters...you already have a catcher and you dont need 2.

Pick up Cahill, Wilson, Bumgarner, or Hellickson. Id pick Wilson...he is their ace. Got pulled out of a Spring Training start but it looked only precautionary. Santanas gonna be out till July. Your team looks good.

I wouldn't do a thing. Santana is a bit unproven Nd you have the horses in your starting staff to hold over until Greinke returns. He should only be out 3 or 4 starts.

Thanks for the help with mine.

If anything I would dropWweiters for Wilson, Bumgarner, or Hellickson, but I don't see an immediate need. You have enough starters to fill out your starting squad and Greinke won't be out too long.

Or you could throw a few trade offers out there and see what you get back.

How many teams are in your league?

I am VERY high on Brandon Morrow. I know he's on the DL but he's only missing one start, in fact he's been pleading with the coaching staff to let him make his start all week. They are being really careful with him but I like him for 15 wins and 200+ k's this year with an ERA around 3.50.

HELP ME PLEASE??? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=425438

I like Morrow, but he is hurt to start the year too. If you can weather that storm, he would be the guy I would target. But if you absolutely need someone who can play for you right off the hop, I would take a chance on Hellickson. I would not argue if you prefer Bumgarner or Cahill, but Hellickson seems to have the most upside of that group. Wieters, your second catcher, is probably the best drop. Although I doubt Sizemore will have any value either.

You don't need two catchers....drop Weiters and pick up Brandon Morrow. I really like him this year.

Here's mine:

He said no DL spot...and since he's already carrying an injured Greinke, don't think another injured SP would help matters...personally, I'd drop Wieters and get Bumgarner or Hellickson.
