Shane Victorino and Nick Swisher?

Postby Pav » Sat Jun 02, 2012 2:00 pm

First, here is an example how our categories look. I will compare two of my players for the year.

Perhaps this will give a better perspective when suggesting who to drop add. As you can see, we have 15 cats but CYC and OFA are just luck.

.................H/AB*--R---H-1B--2B-3B-HR-RBI-SB-TB--A--FPCT--AVG-OPS-CYC-OFA
Elvis Andrus 60/195-34--60-43-13--3---1--24--8--82-128-.972--.308-.806--------0
Ian Desmond 57/213-28-57-34-14--1---8--23--6--97-122-.963--.268-.748--------0


Now, considering Shane Victorino and Nick Swisher or Andrus..

Is there anyone on WW that could better fit for my roster? My HR are low. I went into the draft building my roster for real MLB possible playoff teams since they fight harder at end season.

I want as much power as I can possibly get from those 9 hitters, so long as I don't completely destroy my BA in the process.

I also have to be careful since Longoria will be coming back and I will need to drop someone withing 3 days of his activation

I wouldn't drop any of those three players if that is what you are asking but to tell you the truth I couldn't figure out exactly what you wanted help with. Are you looking to drop these guys for WW players?

I like Fowler but I don't think he is going to give you a lot of power. I don't see a lot of players on the WW that will give you much power. Maybe Moreland but again not better than what you already have.

Yes, Victorino is going to be half full. He has a bum hand and will be getting cortisone injections all year. He can't hit vs Lefties..so that now worth a player who can help in this league..in my opinion.

Swisher has not been doing much for me this year in this type of league. Although, I have built my team for real MLB playoffs teams, that's the only good thing he's been giving me. I want to bench them all the time. What good are they.

But I still need to drop someone for Longoria return. And Desmond has been a decent filler for my SS and give me some Assists to go along.

So I was wondering. after you looked at my comparison of cats example between Andrus and Desmond , would you consider dropping them for option on WW.
