Should I scoop up Lance Lynn for my bullpen?

Postby jdh2 » Sat Apr 28, 2012 7:36 pm

Lynn has been impressive this far, and has 2 starts this coming week. I haven't been using Nathan at all because I prefer to use starters w/ RP eligibility. I'm thinking of dropping Nathan for Lynn & going with Samardzija & Lynn next week since they each have two starts. I'd then go with a platoon in my bullpen depending on who has 2 starts from week to week (Luebke, Samardzija, Lynn). Would you do this?

10 team head to head redraft league w/ standard scoring format.

I don't disagree with the strategy but I think you need to see if you can trade Nathan (and/or League) rather than dropping him.

Do you have a DL slot for Ryan Howard?

You should definitely try to trade nathan.. Texas should have the opportunity to win a lot of ball games and he's their closer. I'd bet there is someone who would take him in a minute.. You might even pair him up with someone else and get an upper level pitcher (or bat). if the 2 for 1 trade works then you can pick up lynn if you're dead set on getting him.

just a thought.

Lynn should not be unowned. I like him over Samardzija instead of Nathan, though.
