Trevor Plouffe or Carlos Quentin? WHIP

Postby yankees25 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 12:38 pm

Ok, so I have Carlos Quentin and I'm wondering if I should addTrevor Plouffe. I really don't have any other player I could drop but Carlos Quentin. I have an overabundance of OF also so thats another reason I'm thinking about getting Plouffe. Here's my roster:
C: Matt Wieters (C)
1B: Mark Teixeira (1B)
2B: Robinson Cano (2B)
3B: Adrian Beltre (3B)
SS: J.J. Hardy (SS)
2B/SS: Jose Altuve (2B)
1B/3B: Mike Napoli (C,1B)
OF: Michael Bourn (OF)
OF: Adam Jones (OF)
OF: Mike Trout (OF)
OF: Josh Hamilton (OF)
OF: Alejandro De Aza (OF)
UTIL: David Ortiz (DH)
Bench: Carlos Quentin (OF)
Bench: Matt Joyce (OF)
DL: Emilio Bonifacio (SS,3B,OF)

I think I'd lean toward keeping Quentin, especially because he might be traded later to a better team later in the season (more RBI potential, etc.), but it wouldn't be ridiculous to drop him for Plouffe. Plouffe has been insanely hot recently, but I'm not entirely sold that he can keep that up. He also hits near the bottom of a bad Twins lineup.

Quentin is a much more proven guy and strong chance he gets dealt to a winner at the deadline

Keep Quentin once they both balance out quintins numbers still will look better

This is probably the right answer. Ploufe is jamming right now, so it is tempting, but your lineup is already so stacked that you aren't going to miss out either way, probably. I'd stand pat.

Plouffe's #s will fall back down to earth. Keep Quentin. He's a streaky player. He's always good for at least one monster week every year where he hits 5 home runs.

I chose Plouffe because I can stick him almost anywhere. In my league, power in middle infield is a lot harder to find than in the outfield
