Vogelsong for Hanson (WHIR)

Postby BUCCOFAN » Mon Aug 08, 2011 12:32 pm

Deep 15 team league, Auction/Keeper/Fantasy Points Style. I could use one more solid starter to run me to the stretch run. Vogelsong has been brilliant don't get me wrong, but is he really legit? and is he worthy of a keeper....Who would out perform who, down the stretch Vogelsong vs Hanson. Hanson has been inconsistent of late but is sooooo dominating when he is on.

I GET:
P - T.Hanson $1 (3) (free agent at seasons end)

I TRADE AWAY:
P - R.Vogelsong $3 (1) (has 2 more years left @ that salary)
OR
P - D.Bard $1 (1) (has 2 more years left @ that salary)

Question is, am I selling high on Vogelsong or is there more left in the tank, this year and next year.......Hanson is basically a 1-1/2 month rental?
Also I have been holding onto Bard all year cause I believe the Sox will let Papelbon walk and give the job to Bard in 2012?

Leave me a link, WHIR

If it's just a rental, I would keep Vogelsong........ I like the teams he's going to be pitching against the last couple months also.

bump

What if I moved Bard $1 (1) little worried about Hanson injury talk now. should i be?
Also worried that my competition might get Hanson? since he is a cheap $1 rental for the stretch easy to fit in your lineup


Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez and pitching coach Roger McDowell will talk with Tommy Hanson to determine whether he needs to be skipped in the starting rotation or have his next start pushed back.
Hanson gave up seven runs in 3 1/3 innings Saturday against the Mets, after which he declined to discuss whether he was having any problems with his shoulder. The young right-hander spent 15 days on the disabled list in June with right rotator cuff tendinitis. His next start is scheduled for Friday against the Cubs, but because of Thursday's scheduled off-day, Mike Minor could start in his place on regular rest. Stay tuned.

I would stick with Vogelsong and Bard...those prices are too good to give up for a *possible* SP upgrade for 1.5 months

My biggest concern with Hanson is the shoulder...he has pitched poorly in his last few outings and there is no sign to him turning it around. I would stay put or at least wait to see how his next start goes before deciding.

Keep Vogelsong and Bard. I would do it if I could keep Hanson but since he is just a rental I wouldn't do it.

thanks for your help with mine
