Drop Kelly Johnson for Chris Perez or K-Rod? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Thu Mar 22, 2012 1:21 pm

Since I think I would have more benefit from an additional pitcher than Kelly Johnson, should I look to add Chris Perez for additional saves or K-Rod for additional holds? Alternately, I could add a guy like Jaime Garcia. This league uses weird stats. Which should I go with? See below...

I could see where that makes sense. I would also advise you to drop Johan for Jaime Garcia, ASAP ... especially with K/BB has one of your cats.

Thanks. Who is the better target: Chris Perez (gives me saves but fewer K's) or K-Rod (gives me holds and more k's)?

I would lean more toward K-Rod.

OK, so this is what I will do. I will put in a claim to drop Johan Santana for Jaime Garcia. Then I will put in a claim to drop Kelly Johnson for K-Rod and a third claim to drop Kelly Johnson for Chris Perez.

Is this the best order to prioritize these in your opinion?

Priority 1: Drop J. Santana for Garcia
Priority 2: Drop K. Johnson for K-Rod
Priority 3: Drop K. Johnson for Chris Perez

Thanks for the feedback.

I would actually go for Perez because in a league that counts Saves/HOLDS, I find closers to be much more valuable. When a closer gets replaced, their replacement is usually already owned.

However, Cueto and Garcia are also very tempting!

I'd go with Perez for what saves you can get from him

Looks fine.

K Rod should provide very good numbers. All speculation here, but if teams are looking for closers at the deadline then K Rod is a guy who has a good chance to be moved (if the Brewers are out of contention).

Perez has the closer role right now, but I don't feel 100% confident that he will keep that role all year. New manager, poor K/9, and Salas (who has better stuff) behind him are all red flags IMO.
