Stash Jennings? WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Tue Apr 19, 2011 10:04 am

I have been hearing a ton about Desmond Jennings lately and being that he is suppose to live up to all the hype, is he worth stashing, and if so, who would I drop for him?

12 team 5x5 H2H keeper (we keep 4) normal positions with 2 util spots

M Cabrera
Choo / JUpton / Rasmus
Berkman / A Hill
Pagan Bench
RZimmerman DL

Harang / Cain / Hanson / DHudson / Bumgarner / Masterson / Ogando / Garza / Kennedy

My initial thoughts are to dump either Pagan / Bumgarner or Ogando

Thanks for the help!

There's no one I'd drop for him yet. With Fuld playing so well, I don't see Jennings getting the call for a while.

I really don't think I would make that move yet. You only keep 4 players, so he wouldn't be one of them. With the way Fuld is playing I don't see Tampa rushing him, and I doubt he plays every day even when he eventually gets called up, unless they have injuries.

I agree, not yet. It doesn't look like TB is ready to call him up yet. It seems like if they were going to do it, they would have when Manny retired. When Fuld starts to slow down, which is inevitable, then I would strongly consider it. TB has always shown to take their time calling guys up but when they do, typically they play so I wouldn't worry about playing time. About the worst thing they could do, is call Jennings up and let him rot on the bench.

I am in a world of hurt for SB so I picked up Fuld and stashed Jennings. I'm thinking about the time Fulds value goes down, Jennings value will go up. :) That's called hedging your bets. :)

I agree, its too early for that move. Hold off while Fuld is hot. Maybe if someone gets hurt but with no timetable for him coming up now I'd say keep the roster space and go with what you have. Good luck!

Thanks for the help with mine!

I'd stick with what you have right now.

If you are intent on making a move, I'd cut loose Bumgarner. I think Bumgarner is going to have a rough go of it this season. He was great last season, but was still rushed through the minor league system. I'm of the opinion he pitched over his head last year.
