Oh, we get three player adds per week. I've already used one of them. So do I use the #2 waiver on Gordon, or on Guerra? Or do I hang on to it? I have to choose wisely, as I can only add two more until Monday.

I would take a try on laroach or lahair freddie freeman isnt gonna be great all year hes not that good yet but not a waiver move



its pretty important you get gurrera though but using a waiver wire move on a closer is a little insane

I completely disagree with whitheadsuxs, I think Freeman is a very valuable 1B in 12 team leagues. He is young and may have a couple of slumps, but he is very talented and will adjust sooner rather then later.

So if I was you, I would grab Howie Kendrick. He definitely should be owned in all 10+ team leagues. Plus he has multiple position eligibility so that makes him even more valuable. But I honestly dont know who I would drop for him on your team. You have a good roster.



help with mine please:

Agree completely. The only person I'd put a claim in on is Kendrick. Let the others clear and pick up in FA if they do.

I wasn't trying to say he sucks i just dont think the whole year is gonna go the way it has started out he should grab someone else in case freddie slumps hard for a while id rather be playing laroach right now everyday over ike davis and then lahair looks like a major sleeper im heavyer on laroach because hes been around longer

Any reason why Kendrick instead of Gordon? And is Javy Guerra worth a look, given the fact that my closers suck?
