WHIR Who should I pickup?

Postby mcmbpd » Mon Jun 18, 2012 1:11 pm

Let's try this again, since I only got 1 reply to this yesterday...

-12 team, mixed, H2H league
-Offensive Catgeories: Hits, Runs, Doubles, Triples, HRs, RBIs, AVG, SBs, CS, and Ks
-Pitching Categories: Wins, Loses, Complete Games, Shut Outs, BBs, Ks, ERA, Saves, and Blown Saves

Hitters: C Jesus Montero, 1B Hosmer, 2B Uggla, SS Jeter, 3B Wright, OF M. Holliday, OF Jennings, OF Fowler, UTIL Plouffe. Bench: Howie Kendrick, Kemp (DL), Berkman (DL)

Starting Pitching: Verlander, Garza, Hellickson, McDonald, Vogelsong, and Nova

Closers: Jansen, Hanrahan, and Nathan (3 daily RP slots)

I'm thinking about dropping Nova (just streamed him today to get another W to win that category) and think I need some more offense this week cuz my bench is looking pretty thin...especially since it looks like Holiday might go out at least for a few days with "an ongoing leg problem"...so who, if anybody would you add this week in place of Nova?

Available: Belt, Revere, R. Weeks, A. Escobar, JD Martinez, Colvin, Aoki, B. Roberts

Thanks! and leave your questions so I can help in return

I would probably pick up an OF in case you do need someone to replace Holliday this week. Ben Revere seems to have been the hottest one on that list lately, so I would try to ride the wave with him while you still can even though you'll be losing some Homeruns with him. If you need the homeruns pick up Tyler Colvin instead.

Help with mine?

Ben Revere is probably the safest pick, especially if you need speed.

But does Belt have OF eligibility in your league? If he does, then he could be a great pick up as well if you need power instead of speed.

ok thanks for the replies everybody. Belt qualifies at 1B and OF in my league, and I was actually leaning in that direction when I made this post. See I think I'm pretty solid at SP even without Nova, and I only picked him up for the start yesterday so I could get another W and take that category. He did his job and now I think I need to move him cuz I feel really weak offensively, cuz of the poss. Holiday injury and already because of Kemp being out so long. So Belt and Revere look like everybody's favorites?
