Is Snider worth it? (WHIR)

Postby nyr199435 » Fri Jul 15, 2011 9:27 pm

I'm in an 8-team league, so I doubt I really need to bother with Snider, but the buzz about him has been hard to ignore. The format is H2H points, is there anybody on my roster you'd think about dropping to grab him? My guess is no, but I figured it's better to ask before someone else snaps him up:
Joe Mauer
Albert Pujols
Freddie Freeman
Rickie Weeks
Ian Kinsler
Jose Bautista
Kevin Youkilis
Derek Jeter
Starlin Castro
Jay Bruce
Justin Upton
Mike Stanton

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

Thanks, and post a link so I can comment on yours!

I would perhaps consider Hellickson long and hard, but ultimately decide not to do it. 8-team league...that's tough.

He's not letting me down though. I've been singing his praises for like 3 weeks now, and he's got another 2-hit, 2-rbi game tonight. Not only that, but he threw in a SB for good measure. ;-)

Snider is scoring runs, batting them in, and stealing bases. It's tough to roster him in an 8 team league unless rosters are crazy deep, but it's hard to ignore his resurgence since being called up.

I'd consider dropping Starlin Castro depending on your points structure. In a league like that there's no reason to roster 2 SS. Castro doesn't do much in the counting categories which are usually weighted heavily in points leagues.
