2 drop/adds? Asdrubal Cabrera & Willie Bloomquist

Postby Tigerfan55 » Thu Apr 07, 2011 10:36 pm

I need to pick up a better SS and also thinking about picking up Bloomquist because of his fast start. Any help on who to drop for these 2 guys or not to do it at all. Thinking about just switching out the SS position but the Bloomquist for who.

Here is my team

C - Mike Napoli
1B - Paul Konerko
2B - Kelly Johnson
3B - Alex Rodriguez
SS - Alex Gonzalez
OF - Jose Bautista, Vernon Wells, Nick Swisher
UTL - Chris Young, Ike Davis
BN - Ben Zobrist, Gaby Sanchez, Magglio Ordonez

SP - Roy Halladay, Jered Weaver, Tim Hudson, Gavin Floyd, Jaime Garcia, Jhoulys Chacin, Cole Hamels
RP - Matt Thornton, John Axford

Bloomquist isn't a long-term solution, but he's fine while he's on a hot streak. By all means, swap him in for Alex Gonzalez, just be prepared to re-swap at some point. In a 12 team league I doubt he'll get scooped up on the wire. And if he does, you're dealing with bottom tier SS anyway so you can give JJ Hardy or Alcides Escobar a look. If you don't have a top SS this year it's a matter of riding the hot hand until you're comfortable sticking with someone.

Eh, Bloomquist is what he is...happens to have had a great week, but doubt that will last much longer.

Check for the following SS-eligible players:

Jed Lawrie
Sean Rodriguez
JJ Hardy
Alicedes Escobar

Let us know who else is available, but don't put your money on ole' Willie!

Good luck! ;-D
