Cruz for Andrus or Hanley? WHIR.

Postby pjtroy34 » Sat Jun 02, 2012 10:26 am

12team, H2H weekly 6x6 roto; additional cats of BB-KO hitting, L, SV+HD.
Can keep 10 players, move up 2 rounds from the previous year.

I've been offered Andrus for Nellie straight up by Owner 1.
I'm thinking of offering Nellie and Lowrie for Hanley to Owner 2.
Cruz's hot streaks are nice, but cold streaks are lengthy and his strikeouts are rampant.

Keeper rule doesn't really apply here as none of the main pieces can be kept anymore.
Lowrie may make someone's top 10 if he continues, but I don't plan on keeping him right now.

Best FA outfielders are JDM, Wiggy, Jay, Reimold, and Moreland.

Which one do you lean or neither?

I like both. I would probably try for Hanley first but I would take either here.

Thanks. I was about to ask for Hanley and then he went deep twice today...
The Andrus deal is in the bag, just have to accept it. I may just do it for the ease of it...plus maybe keeping Lowrie around as insurance or DH isn't a terrible idea.

Any thoughts on those outfielders? Haven't researched them recently, but it seems JDM has picked it up since his horrendous early May. I know Moreland was hot for awhile, but he's a platoon guy and this is a weekly lineup league. Add JDM until Reimold or Jay are activated? Also Delmon, Berry, and Soriano around, but I don't know if I want to pull the trigger on any of them.

I like JD. Moreland is hot right now so I might start with him and see where he goes. As the summer moves along Texas becomes a better hitters park so maybe Moreland gains some value with that.
