Activating Beltran: Drop Bourjos or LoMo? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Wed Aug 24, 2011 2:55 am

I suppose Lawrie is also a candidate for this, but I basically need to drop a player to activate Beltran and I'd rather hang onto Lawrie for 2B backup. So if it's between dropping Bourjos or Logan Morrison, who should I dump? Bourjos is nice speed off the bench and triples are hard to come by in our league, but LoMo has some power/RBI potential. I want to make this decision with fantasy playoffs in mind.

Drop Bourjos. You seem good on speed (ellsbury, bonifacio, crawford, pedroia, cargo), and lawrie is a much better keeper.

See mine? Thanks viewforum.php

Thanks

Let me add that none of these guys I plan to keep since we can only keep 6. So just wondering for the rest of the season, if I had to drop Bourjos, Logan Morrison or Lawrie, which?

It looks like you have plenty of speed, so I would say drop Bourjos. LoMo should provide power and Lawrie is a great backup for Pedroia or David Wright.

You'd be surprised ... I've actually struggled quite a bit with stolen bases, and it seems triples are a real crapshoot.

Devil's advocate: could one make the case that I am better off with Bourjos as a SB weapon to deploy off the bench when needed vs. trying to guess when to play Morrison over Beltran and vice versa, both being similar type hitters?

I think I'd drop LoMo since Bourjos has been hot lately and seems to have solidified his spot on the Angels. LoMo seems to be a shaky in terms of where he stands with the Marlins. If LoMo isn't going to get the playing time, he's no good to you.

Help please?

True, if LoMo is just going to be sitting on your bench then Bourjos is way more valuable since you will be playing him to get SB's and AVG.


BTW LoMo just homered on his first day back.

I know ... big 2 hit day with a homer from LoMo ... geez, this is a tough call. The sad part is that if position scarcity weren't an issue I'd priobably drop Brett Lawrie. But I just know that Lawrie has the ability to get hot and be an impact bat with 2b/3b eligibility. That kind of guy will get picked up and could come back to haunt me in the playoffs...


hmmm, to drop Bourjos or LoMo.... hmmm...

I think it comes down to whichever one you need more, power or speed?
