Worth Dropping Hunter for Rizzo for Util? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Mon Jun 06, 2011 9:29 pm

Hunter is currently in my Util spot because Soriano is on the DL. I hear that Rizzo is being called up today or tomorrow. Hunter hasn't hit a ball in like 5 games, and he is really only a bench player for me that could pretty easily be replaced from the WW. However, when Hosmer was called up, he was snatched right away so I want to act quick.

My Team:

C - V Martinez
1st - Votto
2nd - Pedroia
3rd - Bautista
SS - S Castro
OF - Granderson
OF - Ellsbury
OF - Werth
Util - Hunter

Bench: Soriano (DL), Lawrie.

SPs:
Verlander
Oswalt
Kershaw
Hellickson
Cueto
Vogelsong
Liriano (DL)

RPs:
Marmol
Storen
Putz
Crow
Bailey

Do you think Rizzo may be worth a gamble?

I'd pull the trigger. Even if Rizzo doesn't work out, you can just replace him with another waiver pickup and you aren't losing much in Hunter.

I drafted Hunter thinking he would be a beast this year.

After a month, I dropped him and grabbed Lo-Mo off of the f/a wire.

If Rizzo turns out to be the Hosmer of the NL, you'll shoot yourself.

Pull the trigger.
