Use #1 WW on Delmon Young?

Postby Howie » Tue Apr 19, 2011 10:21 am

He got off to a slow start last year too but then turned things around. I'd have to drop 2 players (as Sizemore is on my DL but not on the actual DL anymore). I was thinking dropping Cuddyer and AJ Burnett. Thoughts??

I would be ok with that because I don't think he makes it through the WW process and I am not sure there will be a better player to grab. Unless you are wanting to get Moustakas or somebody like that. And i would be ok dropping both of those players.

So really you're getting Sizemore and Young while dropping Burnett and Cuddy? Yeah I think that will benefit you, unless you're counting on Cuddy bringing up his slow start and being a useful utility player, getting you spot starts at 3 positions. In all reality, if this was my team, I would rather keep Cuddy and drop both Burnetts. You have 3 solid every day closers, and if that doesnt get you enough saves per week then I dont think Burnett's 1 save every other week is going to help you out much, plus hes not really a full time closer with Storen getting opportunities. I would wait a little while longer on Cuddyer, and I dont think you need 4 people getting saves every week.

Thank you both. The only thing about keeping Cuddyer is that I would have 3 bench bats. I'd prefer to have one, maybe two tops.

I would make that move. I think Sizemore and Young is a good upgrade over Burnett and Cuddyer, and I think you have enough pitching depth to survive the extra bat on your bench.

You bet, I'd do it. Young will heat up, and there will probably be no better drops made available to you. I'd drop both guys to get Young and clear Grady. YOu can always work on a trade later if you need another SP. Good luck
