Anyone holding onto Brandon Beachy?

Postby jpbusta » Mon May 30, 2011 7:35 am

I've kept him eventhough Bailey was occupying my DL spot from the beginning of the season.

Is he the real deal? Small sample size, but I've been impressed with his k/9 and bb/k ratios.

When the other Bailey(Homer) went on the DL I had to make a decision to let one go and I dropped Bailey to keep Beachy. Don't know if it was the right move.

Any insights on this guy would be appreciated. :-)

Heck yes.
I am hanging on to Beachymania, and won't let him go for anything less than Cano. :)

I have him on my DL (2 slots, the other vacant). It would take a couple of really major DL additions for me to drop Beachy.

Ya if you have a DL slot youd be crazy to drop him.

In H2H leagues i actually think this injury might be a blessing in disquise. With a month off and no innings accumulating, its likely hes now going to still be making starts during H2H playoffs rather than be shutdown or moved to the bullpen.

Where I have a DL slot available he's in it. Those that do not I don't have the room, but he's on the wire in both and I'll try to snag him when he comes back.

The Beachy owner in my 10-team non-keeper league dropped him, but we only have one DL slot per team.

I am waiting to pounce when Beachy's return comes closer.

very good point, didnt think about that.

and yes I'm definitely holding on to him, especially since I am in a keeper league.
