Waiver Wire LaRoche and Goldschmidt dropped?

Postby Canadian » Tue Apr 24, 2012 9:00 pm

H2H League 9 Batting Stats 8 Pitching Stats 14 teams.

Today both LaRoche and Goldschmidt got dropped which suprised be quite a bit. I like my team but i see my weak players Wells, Scutaro, K- Rod and Gomez...

Currently my waiver wire is 5. I'm strong at 1st base with Fielder, Pena and Berkman (DL) however with two IF and two UTIL...this seems like a no brainer...

Thoughts on who to drop to pick up? Thoughts on LaRoche and Goldschmidt...I like them both and had trade offers out for both of them (involving other players as well)

Andino and Pierre are just hot hands right now. I like Pierre for steals but I wouldn't keep him for just that cat.

I'm going to put a waiver on both, since im only 5th in waiver.

Any more opionons?

Andino or Pierre would be who I would drop for them. Honestly though I don't think either will be worth all that much this season. Goldschimdt has the most upside but he has a lot of holes in his swing which I expect pitchers to exploit and I have heard that he has one of the slowest swings in baseball which doesn't help. LaRoche is who he is which usually tends to be a WW player except for deeper leagues.
