Drop Lowrie for????

Postby Whosyomamma » Mon Jun 13, 2011 3:06 pm

Thinking about dropping Lowrie for one of the following:


After recently picking up Garza, Beachy and Uggla off the waivers, I'm feeling a lot more secure about my team so I'm just trying to pickup additional value to help down the road...leave a link if you like.

Here is my team and league details:
Yahoo 10-team Std weekly points league(27-man roster - Start 1 each: C,1B,2B,3B,SS,IF,Util, 4-OF, 5-SP, and 2-RP lineups are weekly and NO DL spots):
1B-Konerko, J.Smoak
2B-N.Walker(3B), J.Lowrie(3B,SS), D.Uggla
3B-Longoria, P.Sandoval(1B)
SS-Tulowitzki, J.Peralta(3B)
OF-A.McCutcheon, C.Quentin, M.Bourn, C.Granderson, R.Davis, C.Hart, M.Morse(1B)
SP-C.Kershaw, T.Hanson, Y.Gallardo, J.Chacin, A.Sanchez, M.Garza, B.Beachy
RP-C.Marmol, J.Hanrahan, D.Storen

Since you're not playing Lowrie, now I'd say go with the guy the greatest upside. To me that's Jennings.

Jennings has the most upside on that list but I have no real idea when he will be called up. TB is very patient with their minor league players but I would think sometime before the all-star break. So if you can wait that long, I would go that route.

Looking at your roster and league rules, your OF is crowded, I don't see Jennings as ever playing. Your weakest batting position is 2B, if you're dropping Lowrie, that leaves you with Walker and Uggla.... Sorry, I don't trust Uggla. So I would pick up Lawrie. I would be looking to upgrade your SP staff also since you are starting 5, Garza hasn't done anything and Beachy best case scenario comes back early July. I would be shopping some position players.

Jennings if we knew when he was coming up. Since we don't, I say Lawrie as well.

I would honestly look to add pitching to maybe get two start pitchers depending on the week.

In a HTH with weekly set lineups, extra starts is where you can get tons of extra points. You have too much offensive depth; it is not that necessary with that setup.
