Choo vs Bruce

Postby RUnited » Thu May 19, 2011 11:45 pm

I'm in a points league where multi-base hits, HR's, RBI's, and stolen bases get more points.

Jay Bruce is still available on the WW and I'm wondering whether to drop Choo for him. Here's my lineup:

C Montero
1 MCab
2 Pedroia
3 Beltre
SS Rollins
OF Bautista
OF Crawford
OF Victorino
BN Choo
BN Avila
DL Zimmerman

SP: Chacin, Weaver, Ubaldo, Morrow, Nolasco, Dan Hudson, Jaime Garcia
RP: Marmol, Street, Feliz, Madson

If I should keep Choo, should I drop an SP for Bruce? If so, which SP should I drop? Victorino may be going on DL, I'm not sure. Please help decide!

Asdrubal Cabrera is also available on WW. I've contemplated dropping Rollins for him too.

What kind of league has a guy like Jay Bruce as a free agent? Drop Avila for him immediately, and count yourself very fortunate.

Is this like a 6 team league? Yes, pick up Bruce. You can't drop Shin-soo Freakin' Choo.

Avila is the clear drop.

Drop Avila for Bruce, how many teams are in this league if Bruce is an FA?

Victorino going on DL made that decision easier.

Dropped Avila and picked up Bruce.

The league has just 7 teams. There are few good ranking players in the WW - Ichiro, Dunn, Alex Rios, Billy Butler, BJ Upton, Stephen Drew.

I've given Dunn many serious thoughts, but I've got MCab at 1st and Konerko at Util.

And if you look at Dunn filling in at 1st or Util, Dunn is no where near top 14 players to fill those positions in a 7 team league. I'm not surprised he's still on WW.
