Use #4 waiver on Morse? WHIR!

Postby coyotesjr97 » Tue Jun 26, 2012 6:14 pm

Somebody dropped Morse and I'm tempted to pick him up. I currently have the #4 waiver so not even sure if I can land him, but is he worth burning the #4 waiver on or should I stand pat? Any suggestions on who to drop for him? I have a couple of ideas, but just looking for some other input on the matter. Also note that my league does count holds, though I have punted them the last couple of weeks...so I may need to make a move to get back into that category as well.

In a 10-team H2H 6x6 format counting R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP and W, K's, SVs, Holds, ERA, WHIP.


My team:

C-Napoli
1st-Votto
2nd-Allen Craig
3rd-Middlebrooks
SS-Hanley Ramirez
OF-Stanton
OF-Heyward
OF-Choo
Util-Jeter
Util-Ortiz

Bench
Ryan Zimmerman
Howie Kendrick
Mike Aviles
Hosmer
Reddick
DL-Gardner

SP-
David Price
Wainwright
Wandy Rodriguez
Hanson
Vogelsong
Pettite
McDonald

RP-
Motte
Frieri

I'd be ok with dropping Kendrick or even Pettitte for him if you're in danger of maxing innings.

I was leaning towards Aviles. Have any reasoning/insight you could share as to why Kendrick before Aviles?

Drop Kendrick, get Morse. Kendrick has no power and no steals this year, even in an improved Angels lineup. I'd hold Aviles, he's got pretty good positional utility. Looks like you also have the luxury of not starting Morse should he not heat up immediately. As far as "burning" the waiver priority, that's no sweat - #4 isn't that high.

Help out?
