Use #1 Waiver on Avila (over Wieters?) WHIR!

Postby jeffkoz12 » Mon Jul 25, 2011 11:37 am

Someone dropped Avila yesterday. I know he has been slumping, but I am tempted to use my #1 waiver priority to grab him. I would then drop Wieters.

Worth it? WHIR


(FYI, this is a relatively conservative bunch of owners -- the best commodities to get dropped have been slumping Russell Martin and slumping Alex Avila)


10 team H2H, 5x5, no keepers

Roster:
C Wieters
1B MigCabrera
2B Prado
3B Youk
SS Hanley
OF Bruce
OF McCutchen
OF Gardner
UT Morse
UT Freddie Freeman
BN AsCabrera


SP Linceum
SP Verlander
SP Greinke
SP Carpenter
RP H.Bell
RP Bailey
RP Walden
RP Salas
BN J.Chacin
BN Cahill
BN Wandy

This is tough, but I really dont think it's worth using your #1 waiver if you have Weiters as your catcher already.

i dont think the number 1 spot is worth it on avila if you think he can clear waivers. but he was a solid prospect in his own right. not sure if it's a huge upgrade over weiters.

I don't think I'd do it. I appreciate that your league doesn't give many good opportunities for pickups but Wieters v. Avila is anyone's guess right now. It's not a clear upgrade, might as well bet on something you might actually use. Save the waiver move.

Thanks for the help on mine.

I will see if Avila clears waivers, and then consider dropping a pitcher to grab him.

Thanks for the help.
