Drop Youkilis for Kyle Seager? WHIR

Postby Leiter Fan » Wed May 09, 2012 9:25 pm

I am in a 12-team 6x6 H2H daily transaction keeper league that counts holds and OPS, and has individual OF positions. Kyle Seager has been looking really good, and can back me up at 2 (soon to be 3) positions. I have been playing a game of musical chairs at 3B since Longoria went down, and Youkilis has not only not been able to help me in that regard, but he has also been taking up a bench spot since all my DL spots are occupied.

The only other droppable guy I have in my opinion is Davis, and I actually think he'll have better numbers than Youk this year, the way things are looking. (Please, no one say to drop Pestano, because I do not want to punt my holds category.)

Thanks for the help, and as always let me know if you need help with any of yours. Just be sure to leave a link!

My roster:
C: Buster Posey (C)
1B: Adam Dunn (1B)
2B: Jason Kipnis (2B)
SS: Starlin Castro (SS)
3B: Chris Davis (1B, 3B)
LF: Carlos Gonzalez (LF, CF, RF)
CF: Drew Stubbs (CF)
RF: Jason Heyward (RF)
Util: Bryce Harper (LF, RF)
Bench: Evan Longoria (3B) - injured
Kevin Youkilis (1B, 3B) - injured
DL: Jacoby Ellsbury (CF)

SP: Cole Hamels, Mat Latos, Jordan Zimmermann, Max Scherzer, Matt Moore, Jarrod Parker, Drew Smiley
RP: Jason Motte, Frank Francisco, Scott Downs, Vinnie Pestano
DL: Drew Storen (RP)

Personally I would just hold Youkilis. I'm not a huge fan of his anymore but he almost certainly will play when he gets back and should have more value than Seager.

Id hold Youk, he should be back fairly soon and he is bound to turn it around. at least enough to beat Seager in an OBS league

Ya know I have been looking at Seager as well. I really like how he has been doing. This kind of reminds me a few weeks back when I hesitated on Jose Altuve, and didn't get to snag him. He is now on fire, and could have helped my team immensely. Seager though I dont think is the case here, especially when compared to Youk. I think you have to keep Youk here, and if you need Seager, find an alternative drop to get him.....

Help with mine. Very similar involving Youk
