Drop Alex Gonzalez for McGee or Polanco?

Postby RedBirdChica » Mon Mar 28, 2011 11:45 am

McGee and Aardsma are available on my wire. Oddly, so is Polanco. I definitely don't need help at the Corner, but I feel like he should be rostered. He's batting in the two spot on a great team ... and at 35, still has a little life in him.

Thoughts? WHIR 100%

Here's my roster

SPN standard 5x5 roto league.

C Kurt Suzuki
1B Adam Dunn
2B Gordon Beckham
3B David Wright
SS Alexei Ramirez
2B/SS Starlin Castro
1B/3B Casey McGehee
OF Ryan Braun
OF Andew McCutchen
OF Andre Ethier
OF Juan Pierre
OF Carlos Quentin
UTIL Sean Rodriguez

If that is CASEY MCGEHEE THEN YES, GRAB HIM NOW! If not then I would take Polanco (depending on your league type!) If it's roto he is solid for Avg, Rund, and a decent fill in.

McGehee is on my team already. mid-round draft pick. :)

I'll clarify: Jake McGee, TB.

I dont know how long he will get the chance to close, if you can get Aardsma and stash him on the DL then do it. But Polanco vs Gonzalez is tough, these are two different guys. Polanco will score you runs and a great AVG., Gonzalez will do better on HR's and RBI but he can suck you AVG down. I guess it depends on your scoring, league type, etc. I thnk Gonzalez has more upside than Polanco, but Polcanco is safer and can get hot from time to time.
