Free Agent Jordan Zimmerman!

Postby argh33 » Tue Apr 03, 2012 1:49 am

Jordan Zimmerman is a soon to be free agent in my league, is about to clear waivers in about an hour, who should i drop from my roster?
-Ryan Howard (it's crazy that they haven't officially put him on the DL, really messing up my roster!)
-Brandon Belt ( not sure how much playing time he will get with the Giants, or if he will start in the Minors... but he was playing 1B today, good sign?)
-James Loney ( he had a great second half last season... it'd be a shame if i let him go and he picks up where he left off last season)
-other candidates are: Adam Jones, Edwin Encarnacion, Alexei Ramirez, J.J. Hardy... Carl Crawford( he's gotta be better this season... right?

i really want to drop Ryan Howard since reports are that he wont be back till early June. And he might not even be full strength...
i could at least rack up points with loney and belt for now right?
Next question: Kubel is a free agent... who should i give up???

Yeah gotta say belt too, hasn't proved that he can cut it in the big show and I think Bochy hates him.

Unless you need 2 SS for some reason, why not drop Hardy or Ramirez? Seems superfluous to have both.

i say loney or belt too.

but absent your full roster, its hard to say for sure.

but whatever the decision, you must grab j. zimmerman. dont let the headache of deciding who to drop deter you from picking him up.

help me? viewtopic.php?t=443212

I am more of losing Loney. Too broing for me. At least Belt has sexiness of a bit of breakout. Either way you win this with ZImmerman.

Okay! Zimmerman is officially mine! I dropped Brandon belt. I can place Ryan howard on the DL soon. Should I pick belt up again? Or should I pick up Jason kubel? Who has more trade value? In my league there is a max of 1500 innings. As it stands now I have 7 starting pitchers, 2 closers, and Arnoldo's chapman and Kenley Jansen who are both set-up/ possible closers. And I think Arnoldo's will start as soon as someone struggles or gets injured.
Any tips on how to manage my bench?? And who plays on what day?? Thanks!
