Postby silverZ » Fri Apr 27, 2012 1:52 pm

5x5 roto. Would you drop Ibanez for any of these bats?

Chris Davis
Hafner
Carlos Gomez
Reddick
Nunez
Ankiel
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

The one that I might is Chris Davis. But I would ONLY, ONLY, ONLY do that if Ibanez is basically a full-time bench guy on my team. If he basically never plays then you could consider the upside of Chris Davis to be worth the almost nothing you'll lose from dropping the king of Spain. If Raul gets some PT for you and is counted on to regularly provide numbers it would be hard to do in roto.

My 4 starting OF and Util right now are: Upton, Gordon, Stubbs, Wells, and Pagan. With Choo on the bench since he's day to day. Once Choo comes back I'll only have one spot for Wells/Pagan/Ibanez. I'll only start Ibanez when he's playing at home against a weak RHP. Davis' upside and position eligibility intrigue me... :-?

I like Hafner over Ibanez, who's nothing more than a platooner.
