Who do I grab?

Postby wkpdpack » Sun May 29, 2011 7:30 pm

Nathan just went on DL. Who would you grab from this free agent list? This league has a very limited number of moves. I cannot just pick up and drop people at will so I have to try and grab the person that can help my team now or in the future the most.

Miranda
Willingham
Denorfia
J. Jay
Rivera
Loney
Collmenter
Westbrook
Wolf
T. Wood
Wakefield
Moseley
Harang

C-Santana, Iannetta
1B-Howard
2B-K. Johnson
3B-C. Johnson
SS-Al. Ramirez
MI-J. Turner
CI-R. Roberts
OF-Braun, Kemp, Stanton, Bay, S. Smith
U-F. Sanchez
P-Chacin, Cueto, D. Hudson, Jimenez, League, Cl. Lee, McClellan, Morrow, Putz
Bench-W. Davis, Nathan, G. Beckham
DL-Sandoval, Wright, D. Lee, Nishioka
Minors: Arencibia, Sano

Hmmm.. I don't like any of those guys! I think you should just use the roster spot for weekly add/drops that depend on favorable match-ups.

I agree totally all of these guys are pretty much crap. The only couple of people that has been pretty good lately is Willingham and Wolf.
In my opinion i say you grab Wolf because i think he will get better as the season goes on.

I feel you need a SP more than a hitter. I feel Wood should be the most productive of the bunch, Harang can go deeper into games but his outings are either solid or HR's galore. Collmenter is off to a good start, he could be useful in favorable matchups. Wolf is in the mix too, probably the most "you know what you're getting" out of the group.

Skimpy. Wolf or Wood with pitchers and I would Miranda with hitters. Your call.

Thanks for your post.

If you have limited moves I don't see anything on that list that's gonna help your team.

This is a move I need to make since one of my guys went on the DL. It cost me nothing, doesn't count against me. I know they aren't great options, but I might as well take a chance on one of them and pray they either help me short term or become a gem for the long term.

I'd rather pick up Wolf than Wood. :-)

And yes, like everyone said, none of those guys are appealing to your team. However, seems like a deep league so I would try Wolf and start him in favorable match-ups.

i'd use to spot for weekly pickups as well, don't see anyone on that list that is worth putting much stock into.
