Should I pick up one of these free agents?!!?

Postby TheGhost » Thu Apr 19, 2012 1:22 am

12 teams, redraft, roto.

My team:
C: Buster Posey
1B: Mike Napoli
2B: Robinson Cano
3B: Pablo Sandoval
SS: Asdrubal Cabrera
OF: Martin Prado
OF: Yoenis Cespedes
OF: Kendrys Morales
Utl: Michael Bourn
Bench: Ike davis

SP: Justin Verlander
SP: Cliff Lee
RP: Mariano Rivera
RP: Chris Perez
P: Matt Cain
P: Colby Lewis
P: Ubaldo JImenez
Bench: Jair Jurrjens, Drew Pomeranz, Trevor Bauer, Clay Buchholz

Bauer will be up this season and will be a nice addition, just don't know if he's worth hanging onto that long. Pomeranz is a top prospect and had a good spring. Got lit up in his first start. Buchholz and Jurrjens have had past success but seem like they have no upside and they've stunk so far. Does Chase Headley deserve a spot on this team?

Should I pick up any of the following free agents... and if so, who should I drop??

Kyle Lohse
Kyle Drabek
Chase Headley
Jhoulys Chacin
Matt Harrison
Ryan Volgelson
Jeff Samardzija

And drop both Pomeranz and Jurjens.....maybe even Bucholz.

Even in a 12-team league, I do not see anything wrong with dropping Jurjens and Buchholz--especially when a guy like Lohse is stil sitting out there after the start he'd had.

Headley is swinging the bat well, so he could be an option. If you want more pitching options, I'd turn towards Harrison (who is also off to a tremendous start) or maybe Samardzija...especially if he has another nice start today against the Marlins.

Agreed. If Buchholz turns things around you can grab him then.
