Use my #1 waiver on Pena?

Postby JJJur » Fri Apr 01, 2011 3:00 pm

Carlos Pena appeared in my Waiver Wire. I have first dibs so could take him, but also have Adrian Gonzalez at 1B. Also got Trumbo in my team, but I never figured him to stay around long, Im giving him the boot when Kendrys Morales returns to Anaheim. (edit: taking Pena would of course mean sending Trumbo packing right away)

Pena could factor in my line-up in de Utility spot, right now I get to choose between Damon and Trumbo there, mostly. Seems like an upgrade, but is it enough of an upgrade to use my #1 Waiver claim?

Its a 16 team head-to-head league btw, check my Roster in my profile.

thanks folks!

Looking at your roster I think I'd do it. You lack power in a big way. Peña will kill your AVG, but you should have enough good/solid AVG guys in your lineup to where it won't hurt you much. He has a legit shot at 30 HR and around 100 RBI. Worth burning your priority for, IMO.

Edit: didn't pay attention to your scoring categories before posting but just took another look. I'd definitely do it. Like I said, he'll hurt you in AVG and Ks but, besides his HR and RBI, he draws a lot of BB so he'll help there and also in OPS.

Thoughts on mine?

Yes. That kind of power is hard to come by, so I would say yes. You will have some great power with those 3 dudes once Kendrys is back.

help me out?

I dont have Kendrys, but I mean to dump Trumbo once Kendrys is back, because that would limit Trumbo's playing time in a huge way.

Im agreeing here, but kinda designed my team to be light on power. I should be winning in most pitcher stats, and have a lot of guys tot get good R, SB and AVG, so in head to head, it should be fine.

But still, think Im leaning towards taking him. Thanks
