Josh hamilton coming off DL...which OF to drop? WHIR

Postby Jose Ole » Sun May 22, 2011 6:26 pm

Hey all,

So I'm in a 10-team rotisserie league (currently 6th place). Scoring categories are H, R, RBI, SAC, SB, CS, AVG, OBP, SLG. There are 5 starting outfield spots, not RF/LF/CF specific, just 5 OF slots. Here are all my current valid OF players:

Martin Prado (I like his 2B/3B/OF versatility, and he is batting .288 on the season with 29 R, 6 HR, 28 RBI, 1 SB)
Matt Holliday (No way I'm dropping him. Hopefully he gets though these quad problems quickly)
Johnny Damon (I am second to last in the league in SB, and he is a decent source. Batting .269 with 19 R, 7 HR, 28 RBI, 6 SB)
Coco Crisp (Again, a great source of stolen bases although he's been getting caught a lot too. Batting .268 with 22 R, 2 HR, 15 RBI, 13 SB)
Bobby Abreu (He's been picking up steam recently. Also a decent source of SBs. Batting .268 with 19 R, 2 HR, 19 RBI, 7 SB)
Carlos Lee (He's been OK this season, seems to be picking it up. Batting .244 with 22 R, 4 HR, 23 RBI, 2 SB)
Carlos Beltran (Been hitting pretty well this season. Batting .281 with 21 R, 8 HR, 25 RBI, 0 SB)

Here's a general idea of how I stand in the league:
(Points are out of 10, so an 8 = 3rd best in the league, etc.)
H: 8
R: 5
HR: 4
RBI: 6
SAC: 8.5
SB: 2
CS: 3
AVG: 8
OBP: 5
SLG: 4

And with Josh Hamilton coming off the DL, I need to drop someone. If I was going to drop a pitcher, it'd be Carpenter (which kills me, I'm a Cards fan...other pitchers are Lee, Lincecum, Oswalt, Kuroda, Garza, De La Rosa, and my relievers are Putz, League, and Marmol). I do have two catchers (Molina and McCann), but I like being able to start one when the other is taking a day off, and both are doing well this year. So I think my best bet is to drop one of my outfielders. I guess I was leaning towards Damon/Abreu/Lee...is it too early to give up on doing well in the SB category in my league? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

-Jose

I would be dropping Damon out of that group of OF's...... Crisp will never stay healthy and would be my second choice.

Out of that group I would probably drop Crisp, though I'm not really happy about it.

To be honest, you really need to package and move some of those guys since you have a goodly number of starting-quality players that get to ride your bench.

drop crispy. he'll prob get injured, and even so, you can always find someone decent enough on the wire just like crisp.

Thanks for the advice everyone, it sounds like Crisp or Damon is the general consensus...I'm surprised more people didn't say Abreu, but I guess his power will come in handy down the stretch. I doubt I'll be able to make much progress with SB this season, so is it worth just giving up on that category?

(I have 31 SB, the #1 team has 64. Worst team has 27.)

Thanks,
