Someone Dropped J. Johnson, Should I Use My #3 Waiver On Him

Postby mrje1 » Sun May 06, 2012 8:38 pm

Hello Everyone,

Someone Dropped J. Johnson in my league, Should I take a chance on him and use my #3 waiver on him or take a chance on him if he clears waivers? What should I do? Any chance he turns it around later? The season is still young. If I make the move, who should I drop?

Thank you all for your help.

I would probably pick him up...waiver priority in baseball isn't as important to maintain as football.

I would drop Pedro Alvarez, you've already got depth at 3B and what are the odds he maintains his production at this level? J. Johnson has a lot of upside. The only reason you SHOULDN'T pick him up is if you think someone better will come along on waivers, and even then you're still only #3 on the list, what if someone above you grabs that person? You'll either get Johnson, or move up to #2 for the next guy. I say pick him up.

Thank you very much for your response. I do appreciate it. It looks like I will do the move, but still not sure about who to drop. I kind of don't want to drop Alvarez right now, but if I get a big consensus I will. I am feeling Jaime Garcia right this minute to drop. What do you think about him? Will see. Anyone else?

Thanks again.

Thank you Everyone. I am getting a yes, but for which person.

James McDonald, Jaime Garcia or Pedro Alvarez.

I am almost there. Thank you.

Those 3 are interchangeable. You said you like Alvarez, so cross his name off. Pick which one of the other 2 guys you like less and put in that claim. Good luck man!

Thanks for your input Martain. I put his name there to put out some feelers to see if anyone is liking the idea of dropping Alvarez. Best of luck to you too.

Anyone else have any last minute thoughts?
