pick up feliz or carpenter? WHIR

Postby joeyg2323 » Thu May 31, 2012 10:59 am

alright so heres the deal, my league has 2 DL spots in the league, cespedes is coming off it tomorrow so i will have a free spot. everyone that plays in yahoo should no you have to drop a player to take someone off the DL unless you have a roster space available. so what i want to do is pick up feliz or carp and put them on the DL in replace of cespedes question is who would you pick up?

I would probably take Carpenter even though he is at least 4-6 weeks away. But I have heard Feliz might be sent to the bullpen when he returns and with the way Nathan is pitching I am I don't see him taking the closer role.

Feliz is probably safer to come back sooner but for more potential impact have to go Carpenter

If you can afford to stash him then take Carpenter. If not take Feliz. I dont think either option will hurt you.

i have a lot of young players so injury isnt a main concern. chipper is on the DL but should be back in a week or 2 and my only other concerns would be quentin and heyward. so if i can wait the 4-6 weeks you think carp in the better choice?

Only because I have heard Feliz will be in the pen. So unless a non-closer Feliz will be useful for you, i would take Carpenter. Could depend on your league as well, sometime those middle relief pitchers that rack up lots of K's are extremely useful. Personally I would take Carpenter and hope he comes back similar to what he did last year.
