Who to drop for Moustakas? WHIR always!

Postby BiGAnT » Fri Jun 10, 2011 2:31 pm

I'm not sure who to drop for Moustakas...I;m thinkin Peralta since he would go on my bench if Moustakas plays well but I'm taking a risk if Moustakas turns out to be a bust...And I don't really want to drop one of my RP because they all have the next seat to close and I use them to help my ratios as well so I value them; also, is it worth it to hang onto Rios or drop him maybe instead of peralta??...any suggestions, thanks! ;-D

This is a tough one, only two bench spots? I'd be pretty hesitant to drop Peralta or Rios. Can you drop a pitcher? I'd feel more comfortable dumping Charlie Morton, but I don't know if you need all those guys to keep up with the IP limit (assuming Roto). If you could wait, you could drop whichever Houston pitcher ends up seeming like the odd man out for saves (Melancon or Lyon). If it comes down to Moose, Peralta, and Rios, I'd probably opt to stick with what you have, to be honest.

DAtaris is right, I would limit my choices to Moose and whoever isn't closing in Houston.

Before reading his post I was going to offer Lyon as my suggestion, as I have faith in Melancon for the rest of the season, and have picked him up over Lyon in a couple of my teams.

Rios has played like crap all season and is not showing any signs of progress. In my league he has been on the WW for awhile. I would definitely take a chance by dropping him for Moustakas, who is the #5 prospect in ALL of baseball and mashed 40+ homers/125+ RBIs last season in AAA.

If you really want Moustakas I would say you have to drop Aaron Crow. He has lost his closer job, and I know Soria looked a little shaky in his first save chance, he is still proven and should remain the closer the rest of the season.
