Drop Werth and/or McCarthy/Sanchez?

Postby Pav » Sun Apr 08, 2012 8:12 pm

I am considering dumping Jason Werth WAS for another batter. Leaning with Austin JAckson?

Also, am consider grabbing Billingsley and drop McCarthy or Anibal Sanchez?

I know I am cooked with SAVES and HOLDS, so just go with the two I have I guess.

Any moves you guys suggests?

Thanks

I wouldn't make either of those moves. While I am not a big Werth fan, I don't think Jackson is better. Don't look at a few games and make a decision based on that. Same goes with Billingsley, who I do like but not even close to those other SP. If you want to make a move, do so but don't drop good players to do it.

Santiago is a hot pickup right now for saves.. Is he long term, who knows.. but if you're needing saves and looking to dump someone he's worth a look. McCarthy would be my pick to drop..

While I think he's overrated, Werth is certainly better than Austin Jackson. Jackson is notorious for striking out a LOT and being extremely streaky. Werth, on the other hand, has a lot of upside. You just have to remember that it's still the beginning of the season, Guys like Jackson sizzle off over time, Werth will probably end up being a great starter though.
Also, I'd do what I can to pickup Johan Santana, not Billingsly. Again, lots of upside. Also, I like McCarthy a lot. He looks really good and it'd be really tough for me to drop him. But, can't say that I have a real reason not to.

I agree, I've been watching Johan Santana. I guess it is a tough call dropping McCarthy for him or another closer.

I know Austin Jackson is notorious for striking outs although, he has a different stance and patience at the plate. And he is in a sweet lineup there is the D.

If I keep Werth (i agree is overrated), then what about dropping Dunn?

I could use another 3B eligible player and/or another SS eligible.

Chone Figgins (Sea - 3B)
Kyle Seager (Sea - 3B,SS)
Pedro Alvarez (Pit - 3B)
Daniel Murphy (NYM - 1B,2B,3B)

Some other players I am watching:

Carlos Peña (TB - 1B)
Ian Desmond (Was - SS)
Adam LaRoche (Was - 1B)
Edwin Encarnación (Tor - 1B,3B)

Just looking to make my roster more balanced. It's a tough league H2H "Each" with daily moves.

I'm already in last place of 12 teams and lost 5-14-8 W-L-T

I'd definitely keep Werth and I wouldn't drop any of your starters at this point for Bills. Give it another week or two.

please help

Thanks for the reply.

So, you would just roll with 2 closers for SAVES?

I forgot to add Lance Lynn (StL - RP) on the list.

Lynn was brilliant in his debut Sunday, giving up just two hits, one walk, and one run in 6.2 innings. Lynn struck out eight in the effort. With Chris Carpenter's return date unknown, Lynn could be in line for a fine season.
