Drop Rizzo to activate Soriano? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Sun Jun 19, 2011 1:05 pm

Am in a 12-team H2H non-keeper league.

I have left A Soriano in my DL spot since he was activated because I wanted to see how Anthony Rizzo performed before I made any decisions. After a good couple of games, Rizzo has been COLD as can be and I am unsure whether I should keep him for my bench or drop him in order to activate Soriano (for my bench as well).

What would you do? Here is my roster:

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

Bench: Moustakas, Rizzo, Soriano (in DL slot)

SPs:
Verlander
Oswalt
Kershaw
Hellickson
Liriano
Cueto

RPs:
Marmol
Putz
Storen
Bailey

In a non-keeper I don't really see any reason to keep Rizzo. If Soriano doesn't really do anything you could always pick him back up. 1B is a deep position and I don't really see that many teams needing a 1B where he would be picked up.

I agree with ahcryky on the 1B scene etc

question though...are you going to immediately start Soriano? if not, or even if maybe, Id say just hold tight. I dont see a huge need for Sorianos bat right now. Ok, Werth has kinda sucked, but he at least steals bags & you could always start Morse in OF and Mous or Rizzo in Util. Rizzo may be dead weight currently, but I tend to hold out on cutting "potential" until there is a def need to.

If it were me, I might stand pat until I absolutely had to make a move.

help?

Sori's on fire, and Rizzo isn't. At this point, dropping Rizzo to activate Alf is the right move... I actually did it myself.
