Adrian Beltre...better than this guy?

Postby Fantasy GM » Fri Sep 09, 2011 3:01 am

12 team, H2H points league. I am in the playoffs and Adrian Beltre was just placed on waivers. I have #5 WW priority (out of 12) and we have 1 utility spot on the roster. Should I add Beltre and drop Freddie Freeman (currently in my UTL spot)? I could also drop my weakest RP (B. Parnell) and have both hitters, but then I'll have a hitter on the bench. I have Pujols and Youk on the corners, so whoever I go forward with would be UTL. Gaby Sanchez is also a FA, but I don't think he's the guy to add.

Freddy came back to life yesterday, but I do like Adrian as a WW add. I'd hold off on Gabby.

On second thought, I am not a big believer in Parnell right now. I think you might go ahead and have both hitters and play the matchups. Guys get days off here and there so it might pan out. If nothing else, it keeps Beltre away from an opponent.

Can you see my latest post and weigh in?

Drop Parnell, could/will be getting a time out for awhile. I'd definitely pickup Beltre in the event that Youk gets hurt again...Freeman has been solid all season, I wouldn't drop him over Parnell!

Thanks for the help on mine.

In fact, Youk is hurt again ... or at least experiencing hip issues. I'd drop Parnell and grab Beltre.
