LoCain and C. Quinten on DL who to drop for them? WHIR

Postby GAC8666 » Sun Apr 15, 2012 4:40 pm

Two part question in this one. And WHIR.

I'm lacking some pop obviously and pitching is going to have to carry me.
I have Lo Cain on the DL and I think I can steal C. Quinten off the FA list once he comes off the DL.
Who should I drop for LoCain when he comes off the deal? Or should I just drop him?
Then who should I drop for C. Quinten once he gets off?
I do have 2 total DL spots.

12 team H2H league with 3 keepers per team.
Batting: R, H, HR, RBI, SB, K, E, FPCT, OPS, AVG, EXBH, SLam
Pitching: IP, W, CG, SHO, SV, BB, Hld, ERA, WHIP, K/9, OBPA

I would drop Cain and if you want carlos, I would probably drop Smoak for him.

Thanks for the help fellas. I think taking e risk on Quentin is worth it for my big time lack of power.

+1. Quinten has the power to play anywhere, but he will have a fair # of games in places like ARI, COL but also HOU, CHI and CIN so his home park isnt a deal breaker.
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

As a season ticket holder I watched Carlos Quentin play many games, or sit on the dl for many games for that matter. I would probably keep Lorenzo over quentin or trumbo. You will soon realize Carlos is CONSTANTLY hurt and had only one good season 4 years ago. That 2008 season he played the most games in his career a whooping 130 games.

The home runs he did hit last year were just clearing the short fences at comiskey. I think he only had 7 or 8 at home.

He really really thrived vs. american central opponents for what ever reason we may never know. Everyone else he was a true bum. Bottom line this guy is injured so much you will drop him anyways, in the mean time some one else will have already picked up lo-cain. At least were not sure will lorenzo will do, I know what Q will do. Do not pick up this chump.
