Ryan Zimmerman dropped...add for Lackey? WHIR

Postby mhuhn23 » Wed May 04, 2011 6:05 pm

Ryan Zimmerman was dropped in my keeper league. My league is lame and doesn't have DL spots, which can hurt teams with multiple players out. I didn't see his team's situation, but jumped on the waiver claim, and it went through this morning (I was 12 of 12 on the wire).

Just wondering if I made a good move here. I'm patient, and stream hot players when I can, but I feel good about hanging on here. Keep in mind also that I added Lackey last week, so I have no attachment.

C MIguel Montero
1B Miguel Cabrera
2B Chone Figgins
3B David Wright
SS Hanley Ramirez
OF Jason Heyward
OF Andrew McCutchen
OF Grady Sizemore
OF Jason Bay
UTIL Justin Morneau
BN Chipper Jones
BN Domonic Brown
BN Scott Sizemore

SP: Tim Lincecum, Brett Anderson, Jaime Garcia, Brandon Beachy, Bud Norris, John Lackey, Scott Baker
RP: Neftali Feliz, Jordan Walden, Matt Capps

If i hang onto him it would open the possibility of trading one of Wright/Zimmerman for a true 2B. Thoughts?

Will help in return, just leave me a link! Thanks!

Even in a league with no DL spots, I can't believe someone dropped Zimmerman in a keeper league. Fantastic move for you though.

In a keeper, Zimmerman needs to be owned, DL spots or not.

Great pick up. Keeper or not I would want Zimmerman. With Wright you have 2 of the top 5 third basemen. Gives you the option to move one.

Definitely the right move. In a keeper league, it takes monumental idiocy to drop a top pick like Zimmerman... I wish I was in your league. :-b

And yes, definitely try to moce one for a top 2B. Good luck. B-)
