Morrison or Young? #1 Waiver Priority? WHIR

Postby TrippySG » Tue May 31, 2011 8:52 am

Some guy just dropped Chris Young in my league, and even with that low batting average I dont see why. He dropped him for a middle reliever, and we dont get any points for holds so I see no sense in this move so it makes me second guess this. I am thinking this might be the time to use my #1 waiver priority, dropping Logan Morrison for him. Is there something wrong with Chris Young? Everything seems like hes putting up the exact same numbers as last yr, and even with a .250 AVG I can always use 90-27-90-20 numbers, but does this justify a #1 waiver priority?

I would definitely use your waiver here. Young isn't going through anything I know of, and he's going to produce. The other owner probably screwed up and dropping the wrong player. It's happened twice in my league with big names.

I'm not sold on Logan being your drop, but it really isn't a big deal. Looking at your whole team, it would all be down to personal preference, and I might've ended up with the same name.

Well its either Roberts, Morrison or Santana for me I think, and since C is a hard to replace position I want to hold onto Santana. Roberts isnt the best OF out there, but he has 2B, 3B and OF eligibility and better numbers than Morrison except AVG. My team all has pretty good AVG, so I think I can take the hit here. The other option is taking a pitcher out, but a 1 for 1, OF for OF drop makes more sense to me since pitching is pretty competitive in this league

Its a nice problem to have as far as deciding who to drop, LoMo or Roberts. I would probably drop LoMo for Young, although I do really like LoMo, its more just a statement to your depth.

Thanks for the help on mine.

Nope, there's nothing wrong with Young. He doesn't hit for average at all, but the power is always going to be there, and hopefully he'll start to steal a few more bases. I'd drop Roberts for him rather then LoMo though.

I like Morrison over Roberts. But you have to pick up Young.

So why does everyone like Morrison over Roberts? Roberts AVG is lower, but he's 2/3B eligible and has been playing at or above Morrison's level with the addition of stealing some bases.
