Drop Crawford or Rollins???

Postby s11mike » Mon May 16, 2011 9:14 am

I have Matusz and Oswalt about to come of the DL and I need to make some room for them. Its a head to head 10 team league. Here is my roster:

C: M. Montero
1: M. Cabrera
2: Ian Kinsler
3: Aramis Ramirez
SS: E. Aybar
OF: Braun, Granderson, Ellsbury
DH:Vlad
Util: Sizemore

Bench: J. Peralta, Jimmy "overrated" Rollins, J.Lowrie, Carl "Bust" Crawford

Pitching:

Verlander, Cahill, Morrow, Anibal Sanchez, Jake Peavy, Jake Arrieta

DL Pitchers: Oswalt and Matusz

need to have 6 starters

So, I'm leaning towards dropping Crawford, Rollins, Sanchez or Arrieta. Need to drop 2 of them, thanks for the help!

First of all, this question is probably better suited for the DTKW forum...

No way you drop either of those guys, especially Crawford. He has been raking in the last 2 weeks or so and will continue to get better - don't make the mistake of looking only at his season numbers with his ~.215 BA and drop him as a result. I am no so sure I'd even make room for Matusz in a 10-team league as Arrieta and Sanchez have been very good. I think you could safely cut Peavy for Oswalt, but if you want to keep that experiment going I'd rather have Roy than Arrieta in a 10-teamer.

Peralta and Vlad are must drops before Crawford or Rollins IMO, and even Sizemore would be ahead of at least Crawford on my "drop list". Honestly I'd say cut Matusz and Peralta loose and call Oswalt up. If you want, try to trade Rollins (even if it's cents on the dollar it's better than dropping him) or something like that, but don't go crazy cutting hitters with upside and/or trade value for a guy like Matusz who hasn't pitched all year. Pitching is deep in a 10-teamer and you can always fill the back end of your rotation behind Verlander and Cahill...

If you cut Matusz I don't think you'll regret it, but you certainly will regret dropping Crawford when/if he hits .280 or so with solid numbers across the board from here on out ...

Hope this helps ;-D

First off, I apologize for posting in the wrong forum.

Thanks to both of you for your valuable input. I just found out that Sizemore will be landing on the DL so Im calling up Oswalt in his place. I guess Im just gonna drop Matusz. When Sizemore is ready to come off the DL, Ill probably cut Aybar or Peralta. Vlad cant be cut because we have a DH spot that can only be filled by DH's and there arent many out there.

I guess I just dont have faith in Crawford.
