Looking for opinions on potential WW pickups -- WHIR

Postby Bolthead04 » Wed Jun 15, 2011 10:37 pm

Some names I'm looking at are...

Brett Gardner
Tsuyoshi Nishioka
Domonic Brown
Jonny Cueto

I'm just looking to see what all people think about these names. I'm trying to work out a 2 for 1 trade for a Stubbs type player. See here. If I do, I'd be interested in a pitcher. Otherwise, I'm looking to see if any of my bats are worth replacing. (Eg - Swisher?)

Thanks a bunch. WHIR if you link me. :)

If the trade doesnt happen and you need a offensive player: go for Domonic Brown

if you need a pitcher: go for Cueto


both are very good players to be getting off the WW in a 12 team league though.

I agree, but I'm not exactly sold on dropping any one particular player currently on my roster. The only iffy one is Swisher.

I wouldnt drop Swisher since he is in the Yankees lineup.

I would definitely drop Angel Pagan for Cueto tho, and I probably would drop Pagan for Domonic Brown too since you are in a keeper league.

I agree with the Pagan for Cueto move.

Of that list, I like Gardner if you need speed; Brown also has potential.

Where did I say I was in a keeper league? :-*

Anyway, Pagan is the only player holding my steals and AVG and runs. He's hitting regularly and gets a hit in most every game. I really don't see why people are so low on him. I would drop Swisher years before Pagan. I'd even drop Joyce before Pagan. :-{

Oh my bad, I thought I read you were in a keeper league.

But I'm not sure how Pagan is getting you a hit in most every game when he is batting .245 for the year.

Angel Pagan:
AB HR AVG RBI R SB
139 1 .245 15 16 9


Nick Swisher:
AB HR AVG RBI R SB
207 6 .227 28 28 1


I know Swisher's average is lower then Pagan's, but at least he is producing more in every other category except SB's. And he should definitely get his average up and give you more run's since he is in the Yankee's lineup.

Pagan has been a completely different hitter since coming off the DL in late May. Before he went on and missed a month, Pagan was batting .159. Since returning, he is batting .338 with one homer and 11 RBI in 19 games. He also has five stolen bases in that span. It seems Pagan needed that time off to get healthy and focused at the plate, but it is paying off. Pagan is once again becoming a reliable Fantasy start

From CBS.

He's 8/27 in the last week. That's more than a hit per game. :) He's killing it since coming back from the DL.

Very good points, was not aware of all that. So guess you got me there.


I'm a big fan of CBS's fantasy analysis, they usually have the most reliable and up to date information.
