Who to Add? Volegsong or Furcal? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Mon May 30, 2011 12:28 am

A few days ago I had an open roster spot and decided to add Vogelsong because his last few starts were impressive. However, I just noticed that Furcal is still avaliable, and am contemplating picking him up instead. I don't really need either, but am hoping that one might develop some trade value.

Who do you think I should have on my roster between Vogelsong & Furcal?

C - V Martinez
1st - Votto
2nd - Pedroia
3rd - Bautista
SS - S Castro
OF - Granderson
OF - Ellsbury
OF - A Soriano
Util - Werth

Bench: T Hunter

SPs:
Verlander
Kershaw
Oswalt
Hellickson
Liriano
Cueto
Vogelsong

RPs:
Marmol
Putz
Storen
Bailey

No. 5 pitchers don't bring you trade value........... As for Furcal, the last time he would have had any kind of trade value was way back in 2006.

Volgesong will likely have a couple more quality starts, but his ERA will return to 3.50+ relatively soon. That said, he'll give you some good innings - especially at home.

Furcal's only purpose would be to hold him for a different manager who looses a SS to injury. You might develop some trade value that way. And given the quality of your staff, I'd take Furcal over Volegsong for the purpose of developing trade value.

Thanks for the reply. I actually just noticed that Ryan Roberts is on waivers. If he clears by tomorrow morning I will definitely add him instead.
