Are any of these worth adding? WHIR

Postby BlueJaysFan » Sat May 21, 2011 11:02 am

There are a few intriguing players on the waiver wire, but I'm not sure any are worth dropping a player from my team. If I'm to add any of the following, please tell me who to drop:

Dominic Brown
Rick Porcello
Josh Collmenter
Justin Turner

The only player I'm thinking of dropping is Luke Scott, just because he's playing with an injury and has been slumping for a while. I'm going to have to drop a player soon any way as Cruz is coming back. So maybe so I don't know If I'd keep any of these players more than a few days.

MY TEAM:

C JP Arencibia
1B Miguel Cabrera
2B Ian Kinsler
3B Plácido Polanco
SS Starlin Castro
OF Matt Joyce
OF Curtis Granderson
OF Nick Swisher
Util Aramis Ramirez
Util Mark Teixeira
Util Adam Dunn
Util Ryan Howard
BN Ryan Ludwick
BN Jed Lowrie
BN Erick Aybar
BN Jason Kubel
BN Luke Scott
DL Travis Hafner
DL Nelson Cruz

SP Jake Peavy
SP Tim Hudson
RP Joakim Soria
RP Brian Wilson
RP Brandon League
P Carlos Marmol
P Mark Melancon
p Alexi Ogando
P Zach Britton
P Mariano Rivera
P Matt Guerrier

Don't you think Scott is a better option to drop than Aybar? Scott is playing hurt, while Aybar had a 13 game hit streak. Also Scott has been dropped by 5%, while Aybar has been added by 10%. I think I can afford to drop both, I’m just thinking Aybar is a better option right now.

I'm not sure I would drop anyone on your team for those guys at this point. But Scott looks like the choice over everyone else as he is in a prolonged slump. I would wait though as we just don't know what we are going to get from Brown..

Brown would be the one to pick up but I'm not sure you need to make a move just yet. If I were going to drop a player however it would have to be Scott he's too streaky for my liking.

Thanks for the help! I will most likely swap Scott with Brown; I'm just deciding whether to accept a trade where I give up Scott.

I give: Marmol and Scott
I get: Choo and M. Cabrera

If I do the deal, is there anyone else I should drop for Brown? I'm thinking Aybar, but he has been playing really well lately.

Brown for Scott or Aybar. Pick your own poison.
