Kevin Youkilis Dropped! WHIR

Postby Leiter Fan » Wed Apr 25, 2012 11:20 am

I am in a 12-team 6x6 H2H daily transaction keeper league that counts hold and OPS, and has individual OF positions. Someone in my league dropped Youkilis and I was looking at him as a possibility for my bench and possibly my Utility spot once he starts swinging again.

I just cannot determine if I have anyone worth dropping for him. I am open to any suggestions (although please do not say Pestano, since he is my only holds guy). Or is Youk's decline for real, making it better to just leave him on the wire.

If there is someone worth dropping, the second question is whether it is worth using my #3 waiver priority on him.

Thans for the help, and as always let me know if you need help with any of yours. Just be sure to leave a link!

My roster:
C: Buster Posey (C)
1B: Adam Dunn (1B)
2B: Jason Kipnis (2B)
SS: Starlin Castro (SS)
3B: Evan Longoria (3B)
LF: J.D. Martinez (LF)
CF: Carlos Gonzalez (LF, CF, RF)
RF: Jason Heyward (RF)
Util: Drew Stubbs (CF)
Bench: Kendrys Morales (1B, RF)
Alex Rios (CF, RF)
DL: Jacoby Ellsbury (CF)

SP: Cole Hamels, Mat Latos, Jordan Zimmermann, Max Scherzer, Matt Moore, Mike Minor, Jarrod Parker
RP: Jason Motte, Frank Francisco, Alfredo Aceves, Vinnie Pestano
DL: Drew Storen (RP)

i would def pick him up even using your WW, this type of move can change your team completely if he turns it around so its def worth the risk.


i would drop aceves, he just cant close and some people just cant do it and his one of them.

No doubt would I add Youk for free. Alex Rios, Morales, and Alfredo Aceves are all droppable for him.

Drop Aceves for Youk. Worst comes to worse down the road and you need saves you can swing something for a better closer easily.

Thanks for the help, guys! My waiver claim went through.

I actually ended up cutting all three of these guys loose, since I also got Harper and Downs yesterday.
