#1 Waiver on Youkilis or Ackley? WHIR

Postby clarkw267 » Sun May 06, 2012 3:48 pm

I have the #1 Waiver position, Ackley and Youkilis were just dropped. Obviously my team has a bigger need for a 2B. but Ackley hasn't been setting the world on fire, and Youkilis is the better player regardless of position right?

Do I use my waiver on one of these guys, and if so who would you grab?

My Team
C - Santana
1B - A Gonzalez
2B - Espinosa
3B - Wright
SS - Jeter
CI - Lawrie
MI - Cozart
OF - J Upton
OF - Jennings
OF - Hart
OF - Trout
UT - Butler
BN - J. Montero
BN - A. Rios

P - Wainwright
P - Cain
P - Peavy
P - Beachy
P - Lilly
P - League
P - Balfour
P - Casilla
BN - Jo. Johnson
BN - D. Hudson

I would stash Youk. He still seems capable of a 20/80 campaign if he returns to adequate health. Allows you to use a CI as a trade chip for a 2B.

WHIR?!

I would pick up youk....the only thing is you prob wont play him in your lineup. Wait for him to get healthy and look to deal him. Possibly see if you can package him with espinosa to improve your team at 2B...or just look to deal him for a diff position.

thanks for your help on mine

I would go Ackley - he had flashes of greatness last year and as a young player he has the most upside. If you're wanting to be strictly conservative I'd go for Youk. Upside = Ackley, Conservative/Consistency = Youk.


Can ya help me out? viewtopic.php?f=94&t=446212
