Grab one of these FA's? WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Thu Aug 25, 2011 11:36 am

I am currently in a battle for first place...Our playoffs start next week and I should have a RD 1 bye...Either way, I have been here before, and have been consistently coming in 2nd or 3rd place...Do I look to add any of these to help me get over the hump? I would only consider dropping BJ Upton or Ackley...(Upton would be my first choice)...

Do I need more SP depth?

FA's: Bourjos / C Wells / T Lilly / J Vazquez / R Harden / J Collmenter / M Estrada / F Carmona

Also, if you have any advice of winning it all, I'd be happy to hear it! Leave a link!!! I'll be sure to help ya.

I would watch Harden very closely..he's very fragile and wears down..and Collmenter is sitting there for the taking. He has a 2.18 ERA in his last three starts.

I'd be all over Ackley for Bourjos. I'd also be very much in favor of dropping Upton for a SP, but any SP that has a bad game for you will tear your ratios so easily since you only have 5 right now... Vasquez has been a very interesting story of late. He may be worth the pickup against good matches. I haven't followed him specifically, but his numbers have been very good recently.

Good luck!

Ackley for Bourjos for sure.
I would recommend one more starter a nice back ender.
But IMO you don't have anyone you can drop.
