Cabrera for Verlander & Montero? WHIR

Postby ron paul for pres » Thu Mar 29, 2012 1:26 pm

Hear me out on this one. My starting pitching sucks, I don't have a DH and I've got Prince Fielder riding the bench until Cabrera gets 3B eligibility (min 10 games, so no telling when that will be). I hate the idea of giving up Cabrera, but does this move help my team?

12 team league, H2H, 5X5, non-keeper.

C - Soto
1B - Cabrera
2B - Kinsler
3B - A Rod
SS - A Cabrera
OF - Bruce
OF - Hamilton
OF - Beltran
DH - (empty)
BN - Prince
BN - Alexei Ramirex
BN - L Morrison
BN - M Reyonlds
BN - R Raburn

Verlander is a stud and Montero is a pretty big upgrade over Soto. That said, I still don't think I make that move. Why is Prince riding your bench exactly? Can you not use him in that empty DH slot? Or does have to be an actual DH?

I think I'd stick with what you have and just absolutely club teams over the head with your offense. You can get by with what you have at SP in a H2H league if you play the wire/stream wisely, IMO.

Advice on mine?

I would put Montero in the DH spot and keep Soto at catcher. It has to be an actual DH in that spot. Otherwise, I would put Prince there.

How long until somebody gets DH eligibility? Any chance of Cabrera, Arod, or Prince getting there? Otherwise, one of them is a waste and you need to make a move. But I don't like this move here for you. Cabrera is worth more.


Check out the question in my sig. Thanks in advance.

edit - ps, i like your username. :)
