Drop Freeman for Wieters/Stanton? (WHIR)

Postby nyr199435 » Wed Jul 13, 2011 4:52 pm

One-year, H2H points, 8 teams

I've been riding out Freeman's hot streak, but today two interesting players were dropped in my league: Matt Wieters and Mike Stanton. I'm wondering if I should continue to ride Freeman or swap him out for either of those guys. I only have Mauer at C, so the advantage to adding Wieters would be to have a backup on the days Mauer doesn't play. And at OF I have Upton, Bruce, Bautista, and Suzuki, so Stanton would also essentially be a bench player for me. Is it worth to drop Freddie when he's actually been in my starting lineup (and helping tremendously) for guys who would just be backups? Thanks!

it kind sounds like it is a decision on who's value as a bench player and/or trade bait is higher since none of these guys will be a starter. I'd say Stanton >> Freeman > Weiters. Weiters may be a touch more valuable because he's a C, but in a small league it may not make much difference.

Stanton is the pickup. Easily.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

8 teams, H2H points
Joe Mauer
Albert Pujols
Freddie Freeman
Rickie Weeks
Ian Kinsler
Kevin Youkilis
Jose Bautista
Derek Jeter
Starlin Castro
Justin Upton
Jay Bruce
Ichiro Suzuki

SP: Lincecum, Cain, Kershaw, Jimenez, Hellickson, Beachy
RP: Rivera, Marmol, Feliz, Storen, Street
DL: Johan Santana

I have so many closers because with how often they play they're worth a lot in our league. I also wouldn't want to drop a guy like Beachy or Hellboy for a player that would ride the bench. I'm only leaning toward Freeman because I have both Pujols/Youk at 1B, but I only have one backup at OF for 3 OF positions and I don't have any backups at C.

Lend a hand?
