Pick up Luke Scott (1B/LF), Travis Wood (P)? WHIR

Postby exm » Tue Apr 12, 2011 4:04 pm

Hi, found Luke Scott (1B/LF) and Travis Wood (P) on the wire in our Yahoo H2H 14 Player Keepers League.

My thoughts are to drop Brennan Boesch (Det - LF,RF) for Luke Scott (1B/LF) (leaving me vulnerable at RF though) and to pick up Travis Wood dropping Matt Lindstrom (Col - RP), Brandon Beachy (Atl - P) or James Shields (TB - P). What are your thoughts? Note that I have Lindstrom on my roster to help me with my HLDs and the occasional W and S.

The Boesch/Scott switch is IMO a no brainer but I'm a bit more confused about the Wood pickup.

PS. I have both Dunn and Zimmerman injured. Hopefully Dunn will be back this week but what a horrible way to start the season!

Batters:
Víctor Martínez (Det - C,1B)
Adam Dunn (CWS - 1B)
Robinson Canó (NYY - 2B)
Edwin Encarnación (Tor - 3B)
Jimmy Rollins (Phi - SS)
Jose Tabata (Pit - LF,CF)
Chris Young (Ari - CF)
Nick Markakis (Bal - RF)
Denard Span (Min - CF)
BN:
Maicer Izturis (LAA - 2B,3B,SS)
Brennan Boesch (Det - LF,RF)
Kurt Suzuki (Oak - C)
Mitch Moreland (Tex - 1B)

Pitchers:
Tommy Hanson (Atl - P)
Roy Oswalt (Phi - P)
Ted Lilly (LAD - P)
Jhoulys Chacin (Col - RP)
James Shields (TB - P)
Brandon Beachy (Atl - P)
Heath Bell (SD - RP)
Joe Nathan (Min - RP)
José Valverde (Det - RP)
Jordan Walden (LAA - RP)
Kameron Loe (Mil - RP)
Matt Lindstrom (Col - RP)
DL Ryan Zimmerman (WAS - 3B)
DL Brandon Morrow (Tor - P)

Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, CF, RF, Util, RP, RP, RP, P, P, P, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL, DL, DL

Thanks for the help.

I think both moves are no brainers. Would drop Lindstrom as he seems to be an extra piece for you, and I'm sure you can find another decent RP at some point with his skillset should you need it, or Beachy if you need the Holds.

Good luck!
