Matt Adams worth the 1 waiver? WHIR

Postby ABA316 » Mon May 21, 2012 7:32 pm

20 team dynasty, 25 man MLB roster, 5 man minor roster.

Adams worth the 1 waiver if not owned on a minor roster? Would probably have to drop Luke Gregorson or Francisco Cordero for him, not the end of the world really.

Leave a link..thanks!

We play standard lineup (no CI/MI, 3OF, 1DH). Thing is there's nearly nothing that comes up from the minors during the year that isn't already drafted and I'm sure he won't clear waivers and become a FA.

No I would not use the # 1 waiver on him. He still has to prove that he could hit at the major league level, which is a big jump.

Thanks for the help with mine.
I would not burn a #1 wavier on him. See if he clears waviers then grab him.

Gotta pass with the no. 1. Adams is an elite prospect and could end up being quite good, but the Cards weren't ready to bring him up, and he isn't guranteed a full-time spot now, much less when Craig returns. He's more like a no. 5 or no. 6 waiver kind of guy.

He has to prove that he can hit at a ML level before you go out and get him. I would sit tight for now.

Help me with mine please? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=447488
