Nick Markakis was recently dropped in my league. Is he worth owning? He didn't have a good year last year, and isn't having a good year this year, but he has tons of upside. What do you think? I have an open roster spot, and could use it to add any of the following players:
Offensie Markakis, Alfanso Soriano, Gordon Beckham, Tabata, Patterson, Willingham, Damon, Ludwick, Trumbo, Turner, Rajai Davis Pitchering Kyle Kendrick, Correia, Derek Lowe, Javier Vázquez
C - Alex Avila (C, preseason YRank=349) 1B - Joey Votto (1B, 5) 2B - Dan Uggla (2B, 34) 3B - Michael Young (1B/2B/3B, 76) SS - Elvis Andrus (SS, 100) OF - Corey Hart (OF, 98) OF - Alex Gordon (3B/OF, 287) OF - Bobby Abreu (OF, 117) Utility - Brett Gardner (OF, 120) Bench - Brett Lawrie (2B/NA, 1232) Bench - OPEN DL - Matt Holliday (OF/DL, 21)
SP - Cole Hamels (SP, 60) SP - Brett Anderson (SP, 111) RP - Jonathan Papelbon (RP, 93) (closer) RP - Jose Valverde (RP, 130) (closer) P - Aaron Crow (SP/RP, 423) (closer) P - Sergio Santos (RP, 381) (closer) P - Anibal Sanchez (SP, 277) Bench - Johnny Cueto (SP, 212) Bench - Tim Stauffer (SP, 225) Bench - Francisco Liriano (SP/DL, 83) DL - Brad Lidge (RP/DL, 275)
I would add Correia. He is having a great start so far and the Pirates are actually scoring some runs this year so he wont just be a low ERA guy with a bunch of losses hes getting wins too. If you want a hitter I would again go with a Pirate and take Tabata. None of the other guys on that offense list really seem like guys worth owing.
Keep C Napoli 1 Butler/Davis/Hosmer/Dunn 2 Young/Utley/Zobrist 3 Moustakas SS Bonifacio/E Cabrera OF Grandy/Choo/Reddick/Kubel SP Anderson/C Lee/Oswalt Haren/Moore/A Sanchez RP Soriano/Myers/Johnson/Aceves/Parnell
I'd pick up Davis and plug him in starting line up. you need to bench Uggla and it looks like you have the flexibilty to do that. Other than that I would say Soriano, he was mashing before DL, but it doesnt look like you have a spot to stash him...
