Droppin Jonny Venters?

Postby Cubbies34 » Tue Jul 03, 2012 11:37 pm

H2H 12 team league where holds is a stat. Been holding on to Jonny in the hopes he will turn it around this season, is it time to drop him for a player like Boone Logan, Matt Belisle, Aaron Crow or Ronald Belisario? Any advice is appreciated.

Aaron Crow - hey later if Broxton falters he will get a chance at the closer's gig. He's young got some upside in a deeper league or auction league I'd take him and keep him for a buck.
Belisario has too many OTF issues pass on him.
Boone Logan pass on a lefty specialist. He's nothing more than a situational play and an average one at that.

Matt Belisle is having a solid year nice coutning periperhals for roto or advanced cat play, but his hold count is only at 12 and thats only ok. He'd be my choose or Crow from your choices given.

Though there are a few other worth considering:

Jared Burton, Min RP (will get you some holds and some saves in the short term)
Jake McGee
Shawn Camp
Jose Mijares
Jeremy Affeldt
Darren Oliver (a sneaky add - Rangers using him in high leverage situations now)
James Russell

No problem dropping him. Grab the hot reliever and then move him if he turns cold.

I finally cut ties this past weekend for Rex Brothers. He was just DL'd, so if you don't have the space just move on.
