Injuries? Pick Up Who of These? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Sun Apr 08, 2012 12:51 pm

Happy Easter, everyone!

Could use some advice on who to pick up in light of some recent injuries.

I need to add two bats to replace BJ Upton and Carl Crawford

Top options:

Zack Cozart
Raul Nunez
JD Martinez
Chone Figgins
Ian Desmond
Denard Span
Alex Presley
Aaron hill
Ben revere
Dayan Viciedo

I also need to replace Fister with a SP while he is on the DL. And wouldn't mind replacing Farnsworth with either a closer, rp or SP.

Top options:

Jake Arrieta
Bruce Chen
Gavin Floyd
Jason Vargas
Jeremy Guthrie
Randy wolf
Aroldis chapman
Addison reed
Hector Santiago
Henry Rodriguez
Aaron Harang

This, although I think Presley and Martinez could be interchangeable. ;-D

I like Presley and Viciedo, though Cozart is interesting.

Grab Hector Santiago now, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

As for startes, I would have to look at upcoming matchups. Maybe Vargas though without looking at matchups.

After you grab Santiago, can you help with mine (relating to Santiago): viewtopic.php?t=443666

I am ok with this. I wouldn't have a problem picking up Arrieta if you wanted a SP. I wouldn't let Farnsworth go, he is better than the closers listed.

UGH was hoping Cozart would last until midnight pacific time when our 4 moves cap resets for the new week. Oh well he's gone.

Back to square one. Any more thoughts?

Does Aroldis Chapman offer value? He's throwing lights out but we don't count holds.

hill may rebound with the change in scenery. Santiago has been named the closer in Chi Sox. If have a bench spot I would hold on to Farnsworth.
