Should I drop Rios for Matt Joyce?

Postby coyotesjr97 » Wed Jun 01, 2011 6:37 pm

I'm in a small 8-team 6x6 (OBP and holds the extra categories) H2H league. Please note that I carry lots of starting pitchers as I like to have flexibility with matchups.

My team is:

C-Y. Molina (had Posey, but obviously....)
1st-Texeira
2nd-Utley
3rd-ARod
SS-Tulo
OF-Beltran
OF-Rasmus
OF-Rios
Util-Asdrubal Cabrera
Util-Alex Rios
DL-Ike Davis
DL-Soriano

Starting Pitchers-
Justin Verlander
Jered Weaver
Tim Hudson
Chris Carpenter
Yovani Gallardo
Max Schrezer
Jair Jurrjens
Clay Buchholz

Relievers-
Matt Capps
Jordan Walden
Andrew Bailey
Drew Storen
Gran Balfour (for holds)
Chris Perez
John Axford

Thoughts? My main concern is obviously Joyce dropping off and a midseason turn around for Rios once the temps starting warming up around the country.

Yep, fairly easy decision here. I don't think Rios will be picked up by someone else right away anyways, so you'll probably have a chance to re-claim him if he suddenly heats up.

I think someone else will take a chance on Rios. If you will not use bench space on Rios, I would drop Rios for Joyce. I think Rios may turn it around but I wouldn't want to be waiting for it. I would consider a bench spot for Rios though.
