Is Russell Martin worth holding on to?

Postby Enter_S@ndman42 » Tue Jun 28, 2011 1:15 am

I'm in an 8-team H2H 8x7 (standard 5x5 plus H,K, OBP for offense and QS and HR for pitching).

I have a pretty solid offensive lineup, but I'm a bit weak at catcher with Russell Martin. Here's my line-up:

C: Martin
1B: Cabrera
2B: Kinsler
SS: Reyes
3B: Young
OF: Kemp, Braun, Granderson
UT: Texeira
BN: Victorino, Crawford (DL)

SP: Greinke, J. Garcia, Garza, D. Hudson, Bedard, Hellickson, I. Kennedy, Vogelsong, Beachy
RP: Putz, Street

Do you think Martin will eventually come around, or is he worth dropping in favor of Ruiz, Lucroy, or Soto?

I would drop him. In such a shallow league you might as well play the hot hand. Keep an eye on the position and move them in and out depending on playing time and current production. No need to sit on a guy that isn't producing.

Martin was having a solid year before he got hurt, you might could drop one of your useless arms for Soto who is proven and give you some insurance there. 9 SP really?

Thanks for the tip. Who would you recommend dropping?

Unfortunately, I don't have quality starters (not my decision, didn't draft the team), so I decided to go for quantity instead. It's worked out pretty well so far, as I'm tied for first in my league.
