Which player (s) do I drop for Pagan and/0r Rizzo? WHIR

Postby BlueJaysFan » Sun Jun 05, 2011 1:08 pm

I need some hitting depth with, several players underachieving and on the DL. So, I was thinking of adding Pagan right now, as he has played great since coming off the DL. and then adding Rizzo in a few days. However, I don`t know who to drop. The only pitcher I`m considering dropping is Correia, but he leads the league in wins! I will most likely drop Hafner as soon as Hanram goes on the DL, but even so I can only add one of these two. Thanks.

I think Britton is my best pitching prospect, and would much rather have him than Correia. I also forgot to mention that, Domonic brown is still available in my league. I had him for his first 3 games, then I dropped him. Since then he has been playing great so I`m wondering if he`s worth a 2nd chance?

Who`s better for this year Rizzo (assuming he gets called up) or Brown?

You have to consider the division Britton is playing in. He'll get a heavy dose of Yankees, Red Sox and Bautista (the man's been hitting like a whole team). If you're going to add Pagan, I'd drop Britton.

If you're seeing Britton as your best prospect to anchor a squad, sorry, but I'm thinking you're in trouble. I would pretty much take anyone on your staff over him minus Masterson, Colon, and Correia. If this is a keeper, then Britton over Correia, but Correia is out pitching him right now.

I agree with this one.

Also, Pagan will get you nice all-around points.

Britton is only a one-start this week, and he plays Oakland, one of his losses.

IMO, drop Britton for Pagan.

is this a keeper league, i presume? if so, how many keepers do you have going forward?

IMHO, if you're going to keep britton and picture him to be a "future ace" (which is quite a bit of a stretch... he's a nice-lil pitch-to-contact guy who has enjoyed a nice first go around the league, but as his last start shows there is some downside a-comin') then i wouldn't be too OMFG to drop him for pagan, seeing as you figure britton would have more value in the years to come. then again with rizzo, who knows what you'll get? someone like hosmer is usually the exception as opposed to the rule (~.290/5/17 in his first 100 at bats translates to ~.290/30/98 or something, if you use 6 as a multiplier figuring there's roughly 600 at bats in a full season) and hosmer has had his up and downs... clearly you're a man who's thinking ahead as you already have robbie cano at 2nd and you have lawrie, granted lawrie is playing 3B in the minors and hitting like a 3B and placido polanco is a nice lil stopgap at 3B who won't KILL you, but likely won't help you all that much either, save the sporadic game which maybe adds to a winning week in H2H or something.

however, if you're doing it for rizzo and want to jump in and keep rizzo, well then, i could see that. i mean personally, i'd sooner cut bartolo or cy correia as i think they're both further in over their heads than britton (who is over his head) -- altho i can see with masterson quickly coming back to earth and looking like, well, justin masterson, you'd want to keep on riding the hot hand i spose. clearly, if you're building for the future you make a hard choice and prolly cut colon, but that's an if... i really don't know if you're playing for this year or playing for a keeper-infused-future, which makes a lot of difference in giving you the best advice possible here.

speaking of masterson, take a look at mine would ye?! viewtopic.php?f=26&t=432547
