Pick up M.Carpenter?

Postby guyincognito » Fri May 18, 2012 12:26 pm

I'm trailing in H, RBI and OPS, I've got SB pretty much wrapped up for the week and have a slight lead in R. With Craig going down in StL. should I pick up M.Carpenter for the weekend? Thinking about dropping Morrison to pick him up as Morrison has not been contributing much at all for me. Do I grab Carpenter or go with another FA: Brantley (been hitting well lately), Moreland (although Wandy is a lefty, so he probably won't start tonight), V.Wells, Ishikawa. There is also Fowler, Pierre and Campana, but I can grab those guys on Monday as I don't need speed for the weekend.

Dayan Viciedo is available too and he has been on fire the last 4 games, however, Guillen did say earlier in the week that he will sit so they can play Dunn in the OF.

Can you use m carpenter at OF position though to replace Logan? Move luke scott to OF and carp at 1St? Morrison is probably maddening to own but if his knee gets better as the season goes in he could be a great power source. I'd advocate dropping werth over him, Shane both your bench OF's are out extended periods, no DL spot for Werth? I actually like abreu some

Yeah, the thought was to move Scott to the OF and put Carpenter at 1B. Only 2 DL spots and I've got them filled with Longo and Howard. I was thinking of hanging onto Werth and then once Howard or Longo comes back, I'd slide Werth to the DL.
