Pick up Rizzo or Crawford off waivers? WHIR

Postby labarbatron » Tue Jun 26, 2012 1:55 am

Hey Guys, I'm hurting for some power and if Rizzo is the real deal then I want to pick him up before someone grabs him and reaps the benefits. Carl Crawford is also on the waivers and I was wondering if he is worth adding right now and holding on to. Who would you drop from my team right now for Rizzo, if anyone? Thanks guys!

You could drop Plouffe for him, outside of that, I really wouldn't make a move. I would rather try for a quick 2:1 deal then grab one of the guys off waivers. Maybe package Plouffe/Altuve for Brandon Phillips or something like that.

I like the 2 for 1 idea as well, try and make some space

id drop Burnett for Rizzo though with current roster

your DL is already full with Longoria so why bring in crawford who is still a ways away

Well I have Brandon Phillips right now, do you think there's anyone else I could deal for? I've been thinking about dropping Burnett because we all know he's only worth so many innings. Maybe deal Dickey too?

Drop Burnett? Are you kidding me? Check the guys game log. Outside of one game, hes had a great season. I believe hes won his last 7 outings with a sub 3 era and high K numbers.

Definintely don't drop Burnett, that would be a bad move on your part. If you're going to drop anyone, drop Plouffe for Rizzo, and stay away from Crawford. Both can be said to be question marks, but it seems like Rizzo is ready to make an impact that time around, and I have little faith in Crawford.

Help with mine please? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=449577

I'd be looking to package RA Dickey and Mauer somewhere. I prefer Crawford to Rizzo though.
