NEED Waiver help ASAP. WHIR.

Postby Bub381 » Sat Apr 23, 2011 5:22 pm

My team is beat up in the early going and I am about to go 0-3. Head to Head Points League (no categories). Standard Point Values (HR's, Hits, 2B, 3B, SB, Walks etc) No defensive stats. Pitching stats are basic (Wins 7 pts, Save 5 pts, 3 pts per inning, 1 pt K's etc) No holds.

Uses DH and Utility for some reason. 3 OF's. 5 SP's 2 RP's. Also a DL spot of which Morales occupies.

Today I dropped Adam Jones for Sam Fuld, dropped Daniel Hudson for Mitchell Boggs, dropped Miguel Tejada for Maicer Izturis, and dropped Ian Stewart for Alfonso Soriano. The last week and half I stuggled to monitor my team because of lmitted internet access due to being away but I am usually on top of things. But I am looking for advice to get out of my 0-3 start. Also, if you dont see a player listed in the below group who you think may be valuable and possibly available, let me know and Ill check. Heard alot of Buzz about Ogando but wondering if I should still grab him or anyone else for that matter. Should I hold Andrew Bailey? Get rid of Cordero and Jackson?

Thanks for the help. Was hoping no one would advise on me dropping Wandy haha. I have a tough time dropping him because I know someone is going to scoop him. I cant see who else I'd drop unless I dropped Bailey or Cordero. Oh well. I made the other 2 moves though-- Walden and Pineda-- Just mustering up the courage to bounce Wandy
