McCann down... who to grab/drop? (WHIR!!!)

Postby GiantFanatic » Wed Jul 27, 2011 12:46 am

The dreaded oblique strain... ugh. Need to figure out who to pick-up and drop to get coverage.

The following are my best options from the wire.

  • Yadier Molina - Hot at 49th over the past 14 days, will he turn into a pumpkin? If McCann stays down I'll need him longer... he's at his career best HRs right now.
  • Mike Napoli - Amazing he's ranked 51 over the last 14 days. Seems to sit a lot, but also has some nice numbers and a crazy average right now. Little old for a catcher, same deal as Molina. He does hit in Texas tho...

So I'll need to make room for this new guy. Roster is below... as you can see, Buccholz is taking my DL spot. Do I drop him and move McCann into the DL spot? People are talking September for Buc, and he seems like a pansy. Alternatively I drop Beachy or Niemann, and I'm actually leaning towards Beachy given how strong Niemann looks.

C - McCann
1B - Pujols
2B - Utley
3B - N. Walker
SS - Rollins
OF - Zobrist, Hart, L. Morrison
Util - A. Gordon
Bench- D. Jennings

SP - Kershaw, Cueto, Greinke
RP - Papelbon, Bailey, Soria
P- Carpenter, Bumgarner, Garza
Bench- Morrow, Beachy, Niemann
DL- Buccholz

Interested in any thoughts. Leave a link and I'll reply in kind.
