Who to Drop? WHIR

Postby moochieh » Sat Aug 06, 2011 11:51 pm

Ten Team H2H standard 5x5 league. I am in unbelievable shape in one money league that for some reason only 6 of 10 guys are active in. If this was a roto league, I'd be in the top 4 of every category and am 12 games up. It is nearly impossible to trade because of the deadbeat owners, one trade has been made the entire time between me and the only team I see as competition, but I got Pujols/Bj from him for CarGo/Weaver so I see his team as much weaker now.

Anyway, I will have to drop someone to activate Oswalt tomorrow. Here is my roster:

My Roster-
C Santana
1B Cabrera
2B Kinsler
3B Sandoval
SS Andrus
OF J. Upton
OF Morse
OF Ellsbury
UTIL Pujols
Bench BJ Upton

SP Sabathia
SP Zimmerman
SP Gallardo
RP Street
RP Kimbrel
P Nathan
P Salas
P Kennedy
Be Hudson Worley Cueto J. Garcia
DL Oswalt

The waiver wire is also stacked as someone just dropped CJ Wilson and guys like Dempster, Beachy, Nolasco are available. On offense Hart and Jennings.

People that want to say drop a closer, realize that Guerra is the only closer that is a free agent and I'm really planning to matchup with that one team and he keeps 4 closers. Should I go with Zimmerman just because I will have to cut him eventually due to his innings limit? WHIR

If its not a keeper then I think its automatic to cut J-Zim, even tho he might still put up solid number in his remaining starts, maybe roll the dice and dump Johnny Cueto? then when J-Zim is finished....for the season, release him and re-claim Cueto if need be. You say yourself that it is not an active league, why not use that to your advantage. Same thing said with the closers. you could probably dump a Nathan or Salas and get them back within 2 weeks when Zim is done.

Zimmermann is on an innings limit, so that would be my choice. :)
Thanks for the help on mine!
