Add Sizemore back to my team? WHIR!

Postby outsideoftime » Sun Apr 17, 2011 11:17 am

8 team (28 players per) h2h standard 10 cat
Keeper League (up to 10 players for three years, all players currently in year one)
Looks like I'm starting the season 0-2 as well. Couldn't score enough in week one and lost 5-4. Can't keep the ERA down enough this week losing 5-4.

I drafted Grady Sizemore but then dropped him when a bunch of my guys got hurt and I only had 2 DL spots. He gets activated today. Who would you drop on my team to make room for him if anyone? I'm kinda thinking Lind or Bloomquist could be losing playing time drastically after hit streak collapsed. I have listed my pitchers but I don't think i really need another hitter without dropping one.

C Carlos Ruiz, Joe Mauer- inj
1B Paul Konerko, Kendrys Morales -inj
2B Ben Zobrist (OF, 1B too)
SS Derek Jeter, Willie Bloomquist (3B, OF too)
3B Pedro Alvarez, Mark Reynolds
OF Carlos Gonzalez, Vladimir Guerrero
OF Jacoby Ellsbury, Lance Berkman (1B too)
OF Alex Gordon (3B too), Adam Lind (1B too)

We have two starting utility spots for reserves.

SP Roy Halladay, Tim Lincecum, Ubaldo Jimenez, Chris Carpenter, Clay Buchholz, Jeremy Hellickson, Kyle Drabek, Ian Kennedy, Edwin Jackson
RP Brian Wilson, Joakim Soria, Joe Nathan, Jose Contreras, Aroldis Chapman

I doubt Bloomquist can keep it up being the journeyman that he is. He may outperform Sizemore in the near future but by seasons end id have to think the better value is Sizemore.

help plz

I second bloomquist... his eligibility doesnt really matter with your depth.. and he cant keep it up. Sizemore has too much upside to not take the risk

Only play deep AL-only formats.

Not a Bloomie fan. He's an easy cut.

Another idea: if Reynolds hits a few out next week, trade him with Berkman for a better hitter... your classic 2 for 1 trade. You have lots of depth at 3b and don't need Reyonlds... and he's probably not worth the cost of those K's.

Like others said, Free Willy. Grady has more upside.
