Drop Aaron Hill for SP?

Postby V » Thu May 12, 2011 8:50 pm

12 team 5x5 Roto, 1B/2B/3B/IF. Neil Walker is my starting 2B. Should I go ahead and cut bait on Hill and pick up James MacDonald or Eric Bedard?

Edwin Jackson is also an FA. Any thoughts?

Who are your other arms? I think Hill just on value alone is worth more than the arms you mentioned.

My team:
C: Chris Iannetta (was Posada, then Arencibia, then Ramos, now Iannetta).
1B: Kevin Youkilis
2B: Neil Walker
3B: Evan Longoria
SS: Jhonny Peralta
IF: Lance Berkman
OF: Justin Upton
OF: Jayson Werth
OF: Curtis Granderson
OF: Michael Bourn
U: Grady Sizemore
BN: David Ortiz
BN: Aaron Hill
BN: Matt Joyce

(I mix and match Upton/Werth/Granderson/Bourn/Sizemore/Ortiz/Joyce based on matchups, with two riding the pine every day; I'm desparately trying to make OF for SP trades, but no bites).

SP: CC Sabathia
SP: Tommy Hanson
SP: Mat Latos
RP: Chris Perez
RP: John Axford
P: Josh Beckett
P: Mark Melancon
P: Ryan Madson
P: Zach Britton
DL: Andrew Bailey

It's also a keeper league, and I'm seriously considering dropping out after the season (it's a money league), as the lack of trading is mind-boggling, so in that case no one on my team is untouchable (I'd deal Longoria+Upton for two top-flight SP upgrades, for example).

I don't think you need Hill. If your not using him and need pitching, grab one. Of those three, I would probably take Jackson. ;-)

Hill has been awful for quite a while now, It's time to cut bait. Jackson is surely the best of the options you mentioned.
