Better Bench Bat than Quentin? WHIR

Postby JJGBPD » Wed Jul 13, 2011 8:35 pm

I'm looking for someone that helps in more than 2 categories for my bench spot. Here are some options:

Gaby Sanchez - 1B
Matt Joyce - OF
Coco Crisp - OF
Ryan Roberts - 1B-2B-3B-OF
Emilio Bonafacio - 3B-OF
Dustin Ackley - 2B-OF
Derek Jeter - SS

Here is my team in an 8 team 5x5 head to head league:

C - Joe Mauer
1B - Paul Konerko
2B - Howie Kendrick
3B - Aramis Ramirez
SS - Jose Reyes
OF - Ryan Braun / Curtis Granderson / Justin Upton
UT - Michael Young / Mark Teixeira
BN - Carlos Quentin

SP - Josh Beckett/Michael Pineda/Gio Gonzalez/CJ Wilson/Jhoulys Chacin/Daniel Hudson/Brandon Beachy/Chad Billingsley/Max Scherzer
RP - Brian Wilson/Craig Kimbrel/Huston Street

Thanks!

I was leaning towards Gaby Sanchez as better balance over Quentin or someone like Ackley or Ackley/Roberts that gives me better diversification by position eligibility?? Thoughts?

I think I would stay with Carlos Q....I feel like he has the most potential of that group.

Could you take a look at mine?

Well I just blew things up with a trade. I sent my Justin Upton-Carlos Quentin-Josh Beckett-Brian Wilson to my buddy for Matt Kemp-Wandy Rodriguez-Jonathan Papelbon.

I love getting Kemp in the deal. I was going to drop Quentin anyway, Papelbon-Wilson are about a wash, and I obviously lost out on Beckett-Wandy but I'm not a huge pitching fan because my league allows me to stream anyway.

Now that I have a void on the bench spot, I think I'll grab Gaby Sanchez for now...

I was going to suggest going for Sanchez anyways, so it sounds like you made a good move. Kemp is a stud.

Great trade on your part, and believe it or not Wandy/Beckett aren't THAT far off in terms of value and performance.

I like Gaby, but if you wanted multiple cat's and versatility, Ryan Roberts, even though he is currently in a platoon with Burroughs, could be good for 10-10 over the second half. He'll get his ABs, I'm not worried.
