Help me with 2 FA adds? WHIR

Postby wingman3110 » Mon Jun 06, 2011 3:09 pm

I need to pick up two guys because I just did a two for one trade and I'll also be cutting Aaron Crow since Soria should be getting his job back later this week.

The league is a 12 team 5x5 roto nonkeepers league and the guys that I am targeting to pick up are: Mark Reynolds, Delmon Young, Aaron Hill, Brett Gardner, Nick Swisher, Austion Jackson, Jason Bourgeois, and Danny Espinosa.

The pitchers available look like this: Homer Bailey(dl), Frank Francisco, Matt Thornton, Edinson Volquez, Ervin Santana, Bartolo Colon, AJ Burnett, Edwin Jackson, and John Danks.

My team:
C- Miguel Montero
1B- Ryan Howard
2B- Robinson Cano
3B- Kevin Youklis
SS- Troy Tulowitzki
OF- Rajai Davis
OF- Jay Bruce
OF- Corey Hart
UT- Michael Bourn
UT- Starlin Castro
Bn- Brett Lawrie
DL- Ryan Zimmerman

SP- Jon Lester
SP- Matt Cain
RP- Joakim Soria
RP- Joel Hanrahan
P- Mark Melancon
P- Aaron Crow
P- Mat Latos
Bn- Brandon Morrow
Bn- Max Scherzer
Bn- Matt Garza

I'd take a chance on Bourgeois and Volquez.

Bour should get plenty of PT and stole a base already in his 1st game back. Hall was optioned which opens up 2B more for Bour. So with the elig there he could be huge in the trade market.

Volquez is a great pitcher. Past the 1st inning he has been almost unhittable. Those K numbers are amazing also! I think he comes back and does fine, maybe great. Def both guys worth a chance since you have the room anyways...

Maybe leaning towards Bourg and Reynolds now. Could try and deal away Youk for a SP and or Closer...

I think you have to take a shot with Reynolds. Already having Bourn makes the Bourg add look less appealing. I would give Espinosa a hard look, and AJ Burnett/Volquez. It's really apples and oranges out there so you can't go wrong, but make sure you grab Reynolds and either Bourg/Esp/AJ/Volq.
