Who Should I Pick Up?

Postby Halo Girl » Wed Apr 13, 2011 10:57 pm

I'm in a standard Yahoo 12 team H2H, non-keeper league. Categories: R,HR,RBI,SB,AVG,W,S,SO,ERA,WHIP.

Players I'm looking at picking up: Bruce, C.Santana, A.Torres, Rayburn, Berkman, Hughes, Matusz, Britton, Pineda. I've got a waiver claim in on Bruce (for Encarnacion). Anyone else from this list I should try for? Thanks for the help.

My team:

C Russell Martin
1B Mitch Moreland
2B Ian Kinsler
3B Edwin Encarnación
SS Stephen Drew
OF Álex Ríos
OF Ryan Braun
OF Jayson Werth
Util Kelly Johnson
Util Adam Jones
BN Pedro Alvarez
BN Adam LaRoche
BN Alcides Escobar
DL Rajai Davis

SP Félix Hernández
SP CC Sabathia
RP José Valverde
RP Huston Street
P Dan Haren
P Gio González
P Joe Nathan
P Wandy Rodríguez
BN Brett Myers
BN Madison Bumgarner

I don't mean to pry, but what kind of 12 team league has those players on the WW?

Bruce is pretty much a must-add, and Carlos Santana would make tasty Martin insurance. I'd dump Alcides Escobar for Pineda, too.

There is a team that has been dropping guys like flies so far and then some guys haven't been picked up. If I go for Santana as insurance, who should I dump?

Adam LaRoche is pretty much replacement level in a 12 team league; I'd go with him.

Pick up Santana and Bruce, drop Escobar and LaRoche. Trade away Kinsler for a solid 1B and move Kelly Johnson to 2B. You're welcome.

Someone with a higher waiver claim got Bruce. Waiting on waivers for Santana. Pineda and Britton are FAs, just not sure who to cut to get them. Are either of them going to be better then W.Rodriguez?
