Who to drop fo Humber?

Postby Knights » Mon Apr 16, 2012 3:45 pm

Deep 6x6 H2H keeper league (16 teams). My roster is below, and I'm thinking of adding Philip Humber. I liked him last year, and he has a 2-start week vs BAL and SEA this week. But who should I drop?

I like my other SP, and even though Robertson doesn't get saves he's a hugh help with Ks, ERA and WHIP. I'm leaning towards dropping either Alex Presley or Michael Brantley because I have so many LF on my roster, and realistically I don't know how much I'll be playing them throughout the season. Between them, I'm leaning towards keeping Brantley since he has CF eligibility in case Chris Young gets injured, and CFers are harder to come by.

Do my thoughts make sense - drop Presley? - or should I be looking elsewhere?

C - Jonathan Lucroy (Mil-C)
1B - Ike Davis (NYM-1B)
2B - Dustin Pedroia (Bos-2B)
3B - Brett Lawrie (Tor-3B)
SS - Hanley Ramirez (Mia-SS)
LF - Matt Joyce (TB-LF/RF)
CF - Chris Young (Ari-CF)
RF - Carlos Beltran (StL-RF)
UTIL - Gaby Sanchez (Mia-1B)
BN - Alfonso Soriano (ChC-LF)
BN - Alex Presley (Pit-LF)
BN - Michael Brantley (Cle-LF/CF)

SP - James Shields (TB-SP)
SP - Matt Garza (ChC-SP)
SP - Jaime Garcia (StL-SP)
SP - Johnny Cueto (Cin-SP)
RP - Heath Bell (Mia-RP)
RP - Santiago Casilla (SF-RP)
P - Henry Rodriguez (Wsh-RP)
BN - David Robertson (NYY-RP)
BN - Mike Minor (Atl-SP)
BN - Jonathon Niese (NYM-SP)
DL - Tim Stauffer (SD-SP)

I'd drop Robertson (NYY) and keep Presley your OF is not deep enough to lose him.

I don't want to drop Presley, but you're right: Brantley can fill in at both LF/CF, so you'd have a backup for both. I think Presley's the drop here.

Brantley or Presley it's a toss up IMO.

If you haven't done it already, I agree with the Presley drop for all the reasons above.

Thanks for helping on mine.

I'm voting for something different...drop Soriano. He's 36, been declining for a few years now, and is an injury risk. Brantley and Presley potentially have more upside. You know your cap on Soriano and he'll likely fall under it.
