Longoria out | Who to pick up?

Postby Pav » Wed May 02, 2012 2:12 pm

Who fits my roster vs my league cats and scoring best?

H2H "Each"- Mixed, 12 teams, Daily, W-L-T
Cats: R, H, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, TB, A, FPCT, AVG, OPS, CYC, OFA

ROSTER

C A.J. Pierzynski (CWS - C)
1B Adrian Gonzalez (Bos - 1B)
2B Howie Kendrick (LAA - 1B,2B,OF)
3B Evan Longoria (TB - 3B)
SS Elvis Andrus (Tex - SS)
OF Matt Holliday (StL - OF)
OF Shane Victorino (Phi - OF)
OF Melky Cabrera (SF - OF)
Util Edwin Encarnacion (Tor - 1B,3B)

BN Nick Swisher (NYY - 1B,OF)
BN Jayson Werth (Was - OF)

Waiver

Jose Altuve (Hou - 2B)
Angel Pagan (SF - OF)
Pedro Alvarez (Pit - 3B)
Josh Reddick (Oak - OF)
Lucas Duda (NYM - 1B,OF)
Carlos Ruiz (Phi - C)
Eric Thames (Tor - OF)
Jose Tabata (Pit - OF)
Jed Lowrie (NYM - 2B,SS)
Dexter Fowler (Col - OF)
Mitch Moreland (Tex - 1B,OF)
Ruben Tejada (NYM - 2B,SS)
Alex Gonzalez (Mil - SS)
Jordan Schafer (Hou - OF)
Ty Wigginton (Phi - 1B,3B,OF)
Kirk Nieuwenhuis (NYM - OF)
Placido Polanco (Phi - 3B)
Denard Span (Min - OF)
Alex Presley (Pit - OF)
Orlando Hudson (SD - 2B)
Ryan Sweeney (Bos - OF)
Alcides Escobar (KC - SS)

I need to make sure I can replace the cats stats which Longoria had going.
R, H, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, TB, A, FPCT, AVG, OPS

I have to be careful not losing Assists here.

OPS: Alvarez, Altuve, and Lowrie
Assist: Lowrie, Alvaraz, Altuve
Runs: Altuve, Lowrie, Alvarez
2B & 3B goes to Altuve and Alvarez.
HR: Lowrie, Alvaraz, Pagan
RBI: Alvarez, Lowrie, Altuve

Altuve has been sensational so far this season but no power. Even Pagan is looking decent if it's not a fluke.

I know it's also nice to have multi-positional player. And let's hope Swisher is not lingered. And Gonzalez comes back hitting. I didn't want him at the draft but was the best player available at that position. Although, my gut did say pass on him. He's concerning me.

I would go with Altuve even without the power. The guy should help in most categories and I don't see anyone that is a must get over him. The only other person I would consider would be Alvarez, but he's such an average drag that I figured Altuve would be a better fit.

Altuve is 2B, so how would I work him into the roster?

I would go with Altuve as well. Put Encarnacion at 3B and plug Altuve in at UTIL.

Whoever gets the coldest. Swisher and Werth are rather streaky, so if one of them goes on a tear then slip them in over Altuve. Altuve will tread water with solid enough stats until then.
