Avila on DL, other injuries - which way to go?

Postby Pav » Fri Jun 08, 2012 11:23 pm

I've had many injuries on this team. Lately, Avila.

There are only 3 best options on WW for catcher. I am leaning with Wilin Rosario but Martin could work too.

Also, I list some players on my WW. So you see any other changes I should consider dropping and adding?

Thanks

I think you're carrying too many bench hitters for a h2h league with your settings. I'd drop Escobar for Rosario for now. Then watch the news on Gardner, who had a setback in his rehab -- I wouldn't drop him right away, but he may be droppable soon. Overall, I'd aim to have more pitchers in those bench spots.

I'd drop Escobar and Gardner now and grab Cook and...okay, my first thought is to play catcherless for a while and grab Hudson or Marcum (pick your favorite). But if that's not viable, Rosario. And watch the other two for an opportunity to add.

Thanks for the response..

Actually, how does Ryan Cook help me? His ratios suck as well as Hudson. After looking at their stats further.

Cook walks a boat load of guys and his ratios the past 14 days are

ERA 5.40 WHIP 1.80

3.1 ip in 14 days isn't enough to evaluate anyone. His ratios for the season are excellent, though walks are a concern. But the more important thing is that Fuentes blew another save, which might open up the closer role.

Ok although I already picked up Ryan Cook dropping Gardner. Still keep Cook?

Also, I can still grab Daniel Hudson, Shawn Marcum dropping Escobar and Avila?
