A-Rod to DL .. Pick up Alex Presley or Eduardo Nunez? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Thu Jul 14, 2011 3:31 pm

I already have Bonifacio to throw in at 3B ... but am I better off picking up Alex Presley or Eduardo Nunez with the extra roster spot?

12 Team H2H. We Keep 6 Players Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means contract year

Stat Cats: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

MY TEAM:

2B D. Pedroia
3B A. Rodriguez (DL -- waiting for Yahoo to make it official so I get an extra roster spot)
SS H. Ramirez
OF C. Gonzalez
OF J. Ellsbury
OF D. Brown
UT Mig. Cabrera
UT D. Young
UT T. Hunter
BN E. Bonifacio (will replace A-Rod for a bit)
DL I. Davis
DL C. Crawford

SP R. Halladay
SP F. Hernandez
SP T. Hanson
RP J. Walden
RP S. Santos
P B. Parnell (just added him after that K-Rod trade)
P M. Adams (added him in case Bell gets traded)
P Z. Greinke*
BN Y. Gallardo
BN T. Cahill
BN W. Rodriguez
BN B. Norris
DL S. Strasburg

Tough choice... but I like Presley. He's young and trying to prove himself on a team that's doing the same. I think Nunez is a good replacement, but I think he will cool off. Nunez does have the better lineup around him tho..

I think I'd go Nunez. I think they're similar caliber players and Nunez has the better lineup around him.

Lend a hand?

Definitely, Nunez. He's been pretty good thus far with Yanks. I don't think you can really go wrong with either one, though

The thing that bothers me a bit about Nunez, even though he has a MUCH better line-up around him, is that he gets AB's far less than Presley does. That would be my deal-breaker. If you think you have enough guys that you don't need him to get daily or almost-daily AB's, then Nunez looks better. If you need daily/almost-daily AB's, then Presley looks better, even with Nunez coming in for Jeter in the past and possibly coming in for A-Rod. Unless you read somewhere that Nunez will start daily for A-Rod, I'd go Presley cause of the better AB's guarantee.

Per CBS:
"Yankees 3B Eduardo Nunez got the start on Sunday against Tampa Bay and will continue to do so consistently going forward with Alex Rodriguez electing to undergo knee surgery. Nunez went 1 for 3 in the game and is batting .279 on the year."
