Aroldis Chapman

Postby oldmanbean » Mon Mar 26, 2012 12:44 pm

It has been suggested that I replace Brett Cecil with Chapman (waiver pick, of which I have 5 for the year)

Problem is that right now he may be going back to the bullpen as a setup man. If that is the case, it is not a good deal
as our league does not score holds, I would only get points for IP and Ks.

Do you think it is worth the chance, or should I wait until his position is known??


12 team points keeper league.
15 hitters, 10 pitchers.
1 point per TB, bb = 1, r = 1, rbi = 2, sb = 2, cs = -1
IP = 1, K = 1, W = 10, QS = 5, S = 5, BS = -5,L=-5,ER=-2,BB=-1
We start 1 at each position plus an EH. 6 pitchers, weeekly lineups



C B McCann 12, Y Molina 4
1B M Cabrera 28, A LaRoche 3
2B J Kipnis 3, D Uggla 17
3B M Gamel 4, R Zimmerman 12
SS E Andrus 9, D Gordon 4
OF J Bautista 11, M Cabrera 8, H Pence 14, I Suzuki 4, D Young 2
P J Axford 3, B Beachy 6, B Cecil 2, D Hudson 11, C Lee 19
H Noesi 2, A Pettitte 2, E Volquez 4, A Wainwright 6, J Zimmermann 10

With Madson out I would wait on this call, seems like a big IF.

It depends on what other SP options are out there. In most leagues, Cecil is a pretty easy option to replace. Chances are that you're spot starting him anyway. Chapman's upside alone could be worth the switch despite his current role. If things don't work out well you would probably be able to pick Cecil back up or find someone to equal or greater value, no?

i agree. you have plenty of options at sp. dusty baker might make chapman the closer. worst case you see how effective his K rate is, bc that might be enough by itself to hold onto him. i would make the swap.

Do you want to risk this with only 5 waiver picks all year? I ask because I'm not really sure, I don't generally play in limited pickup leagues

I missed that part .... ugh. I play in a league that allows 10 waiver pickups and treat them like gold. I would hold off.

With only 5 pick ups, you have to wait.

thanks to all ... I had a feeling that waiting was the right thing to do, but it always helps to be reassured!

I don't think anyone in my league has him in their sights anyway, but i will keep tuned to all the news. Should
be something by the end of the week....

I wouldn't be so sure about that. The kid is hitting 98mph consistent and striking out 1 per inning. I know it's only Spring but I'm sure if there are any baseball fans in your pool then he is on their radar

Well, no one knew who Lucas Duda was when my friend drafted him, so don't think they are aware of someone who is currently not a starter OR closer .... but I can' see wasting a pick on him if he stays setup. Hurry up Dusty!!
