Top waiver in a deep 16 team league WHIR

Postby MPappadato » Mon Apr 16, 2012 5:19 pm

I am in a 16 team mixed H2H league (No DL) and I have the top waiver position. I am getting a 0 out of one of my utility spots (Trout) so I'd like to add a hitter now, but I'm also aiming at balancing immediate stats vs long term talent. I have an empty roster position. Would you use the top waiver priority on any of:

Nolan Reimold, Jason Bourgeois, Yonder Alonso, Stephen Drew, Bryce Harper.

If not , would you use it on Ivan Nova, Mike Leake, Francisco Liriano, Roy Oswalt, or Ross Detweiler?

Taking into account the circumstances, would you put your top 3 choices in order? Or simply say, "no don't burn the claim"

As always, thanks for the help and WHIR

Don't burn it. With all the injuries going around, someone is bound to do something silly, and then you get to pounce (e.g., someone dropping Morse, Ellsbury, etc.)
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

Don't burn the claim. Like mpieco said, someone might do something crazy.

Ya I wouldn't burn the claim so soon either.... Unless your waiver list resets weekly or monthly I would stand pat.

I'd rank as follows if need be.
Harper (should be up in 1-2 months)
Reimold
Alonso
Bourgeois
Drew

Liriano
Leake
Oswalt
Nova
Detweiller
