Big $ Points League - Catcher Add/Drop WHIR

Postby Wiserman20 » Wed Jun 15, 2011 10:49 am

I've searched the forums and have found some threads close to this, but wanted some fresh perspective.

I'm currently 1st in a big $ 10 team h2h points fantasy league. Points are typical (1pt for 1b, 2pt for 2b, -1 for K, etc)

Waiver transactions cost $3, which cuts down on add/drop activity leaving some pretty good players on the wire.

I'm currently looking at dropping K. Suzuki. His lack of power is killing me.. Available is Iannetta, Arencibia, and Olivio.

Here's my squad

C - K. Suzuki
1B - Miguel Cabrera
2B - Uggla
3B - Bautista
SS - Rollins
OF - Kemp
OF - Morrison
OF - Zobrist
UTIL - Melky Cabrera
UTIL - Alex Gordon
UTIL - Denard Span or Torii Hunter
UTIL - Cuddyer, Davis, or McGehee

Bench - Rajai Davis, Jeter, McGehee

It's obvious where most of my points are coming from (Bautista, Kemp, Cabrera) so i'm not desperate for points in any way shape or form. But with those catchers mentioned above on the wire, should I make a move or stand pat and hope Kurt turns it around?

Thanks for any thoughts or ideas. WHIR drop in a link.

I like Iannetta here. His average is poor, but he's going to play nearly everyday due to his OBP skills and his power.

I cant' figure out JP, but he's producing what you want from a catcher. I'd go after him. I wouldn't wait on anyone playing for the A's offense.

For 3$, I stay put because your options arent really much better, but since I dont really play points leagues like this, I am not completely sure. I like Arencibia, mainly because negative points for strikeouts are going to kill you with Olivio, and I think hes got the best potential to get better over the season and currently has more XBH to go along with the same or less K's than these other guys. Buuuttt...Suzuki has only 28 K, which is at least 20 less than the other guys. I dont know if that adds up to anything, but since Arencibia has better K than Olivo, around the same HR, more XBH than the rest of these guys Id go with him. BTW, Iannetta has the least AB out of all these guys.

Great point Trippy on the K's. I took a look at the #'s again and even though Suzuki is not hitting for power, he's not punching out and taking those negative points..

If he can maintain the low strike outs and put some HR's on the board, I may be best off as is..

On the flip side to IronBird's point, JP is owned by 70% of ESPN leagues for a reason... kid has pop but alternatively, he has Molina behind him taking play time, and punches out quite a bit.

Hmmm..

I would go for JP. He is a young catcher but has a lot of potential, plus he is playing in a hitters ballpark.

Suzuki sat again last night for no apparent reason other than the new manager isn't a fan...

I grabbed JP I don't like the way this is looking. Thanks again for the input.
