who to drop for trumbo? .. WHIR

Postby osbtensor » Sun Aug 07, 2011 4:35 pm

it's a points only league so avg doesn't really factor.. other than if you're not hitting, you're not getting any points.

i've got three rookies who i hate to give up.. ackley and jennings have been great and i think lawrie will be the same. hit 2-4 with a hr in his 3rd game.

i'm thinking the odd man out is werth. he's actually started showing signs of turning it around, but i think trumbo is better. what do you guys think?

c - c. santana
1b - j. votto
2b - r. cano, i. kinsler, d. ackley
3b - m. young. b. lawrie
ss - d. jeter
of - j. ellsbury, i. suzuki, c. crawford, d. jennings, j. werth
dl - s. choo

leave a link and i'll return the favor

thanks for your help on mine. i think you have enough speed guys on your team and certainly trumbo is more valuable than werth in the power department. i think you're right, i'd let go of werth.

Yeah I think Trumbo will continue to put up good counting stats at a better rate tha. Werth, so u can make that move.

If it's not a keeper, I would consider dropping Ackley before Werth. Trumbo has been putting up decent power numbers, so the move is solid. I just would take Werth over Ackley right now, given that he's heating up and Ackley is a rookie on the M's (two not so great traits). Even if it was a keeper, I'd rather drop Ackley than Werth, although by a lesser margin.

Thanks for the help on mine. ;-D
