Add Kubel? WHIR

Postby Doughhead » Thu May 12, 2011 8:31 am

I've been looking to add Kubel for a while, and he just keeps on hitting. Can't imagine he'll stay on the WW for long. But I can't for the life of me decide who to drop. I guess it would have to be De La Rosa or Chacin, but they've both been so good. Any thoughts?

Hmm, tough one. Kubel is worth adding, but you really don't have a spot for him on your team. The only potential drop I see is Davis, but he has so much speed potential it would be a shame to do that.

Yeah, that is a really tough one.
I wouldnt drop any of those pitchers for him. I also agree that you cant drop Davis...you dont have that much speed on your team, so Davis is pretty valuable.

Personally, I'd rather have Kubel than Gordon. But, that doesnt necessarily mean I'd drop Gordon to pick up Kubel. If that makes any sense!

I'd say you dont have any great options to drop (which is a good problem to have). Unless you feel that it makes sense to drop Davis, pick up Kubel, and then trade someone (like Lind?) for a good player w/ speed.

I would probably drop gordon. He is not nearly going to be as productive going forward at the rate he was in april. Stay with a hot hand, that's how you win.

I agree with rotoquest...ride the hot hand ...10 teams is a shallow enough league gordon will probably either still be avail when kubel cools off...or someone will pick him up and the guy they drop will be just as good
