A Bailey Dropped. Worth an add? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Fri Apr 20, 2012 9:17 pm

I am in a 12-team H2H Keeper league. After I heard about Bailey's injury, I automatically picked up Aceves. Now, with the recent injury to Berkman, a manager has dropped Bailey. Should I pick him up to stash on my DL? I am not sure about it though because I don't really want to risk losing any of my players when they clear waivers.

Any Advice? I have a crapload of closers.

He'll be out for a few months. Even when he comes back, you won't have him long enough for him to make much of an impact, even if he comes back strong. I needed my DL spot for someone else, so I had no problem dropping him based on those reason. No one in my 13 team league picked him up. Unless you can carry him without losing someone that will benefit your team, I'd stand pat.

I wouldn't think that you would miss Bard. Could be worth the risk.

I agree with the Bard statement. I doubt anyone runs out to grab him. If so, what have you lost.. really?

My staff lacks Ks, which Bard has usually brought me (even when he's pitched bad).
