Heyward dropped, claim him? WHIR

Postby saemick » Tue Apr 10, 2012 1:48 pm

Now, I'm not a big believer in Jason Heyward this year, but to drop him after week 1....c'mon. Is he worth claiming? if so, who to drop:

12-team 6x6 H2H Yahoo! NON-KEEPER league
c: Jesus Montero
1b: Miggy
2b: Uggla
ss: D. Gordon
3b: Wright
IF: Reynolds
OF: J. Upton, Bruce, Bourjos
Utl: K. Morales
BN: B. Harper, Belt, Doumit (till Jesus gets C eligible)
SP: Bumgarner, Price, Gio, Zimmerman, Minor, Bard
RP: Santos, Guerra, Myers, HanK-Rod, Melancon, G. Holland
Stat categories: Hitters: R, HR, RBI, SB, BA, OPS Pitchers: W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, QS

Yeah, it's worth gambling he breaks out some this season. I'd let Bourjos go. Not a fan of him batting at the bottom of the lineup nor his "likely needs surgery after the season" hip.

No real need to waste a bench slot on Harper either in a non-keeper.

Yes worth claiming.

Is Melancon in line to get any save opportunities? If he isn't, I would just drop him. If he is, then I would package him with Hank Rod and trade with whoever owns Lidge/Storen or Aceves for a player in return.


Advice appreciated:
