Roster Decision in Wake of A-Rod WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Thu Jul 14, 2011 5:34 pm

I have a roster decision ...

I have an open roster spot since A-Rod was just DLed.
That spot will ultimately go to Crawford when he comes off the DL Monday the 18th
I have guys I am eyeing: Brett Lawrie as a stash; Eduardo Nunez in case Bonifacio falters; Alex Presley in case Cargo's wrist ails him more...

Do I grab Lawrie now and go into the weekend without any bench hitters? Then, on Monday, drop Bobby Parnell to activate Crawford? It sounds like Parnell and Isringhausen will share the roll, and I already have Adams for when Bell gets dealt later. Good news is my opponent this weekend isn't fielding a full roster.

OR do I let Lawrie sit on the FA wire anmd just grab Presley or Nunez and hang onto Parnell?

If I have a full active roster, I personally wouldn't worry too much about my bench for one weekend. Unless of course, you have a bunch of bench guys you can't stand to part with.... I think I pick up someone to stash on my DL and worry about the bench later.....

Help with mine. viewtopic.php?t=435025

Well, just a note... Lawrie would take up a roster spot... can't be DLed in Yahoo. Still worth it?

Sorry I didn't even look at Lawrie. I assumed you meant you'd be picking him up to stash on the dl. Might still be worthwhile; I guess it depends on if he's better than a guy on your bench, in your mind.....

The guys for the bench would be Nunez or Presley.

The real issue, though, is whether I would then be wise to dump Parnell to activate Crawford. Is 4 RPs overkill anyway?
