Hosmer/Plouffe/Reddick/Swisher - who to drop? WHIR

Postby sodomojo » Fri Jul 13, 2012 1:13 am

On waivers:
Vinnie Pestano (must-add, holds league)
Ryan Dempster (should I add?)
Josh Beckett (should I add?)

I'm leaning towards dropping one of the four mentioned above... but here is my entire team (H2H):

C - Santana
1B - Encarnacion
2B - Cano
3B - Lawrie
SS - Plouffe
OF - Bourn, Craig, Reddick
UT - Butler
BN - Jennings, Hosmer, Swisher
DL - Tulowitzki, Bonifacio
P - Kershaw, Hamels, Sale, McDonald, Cueto, Hanson, Latos, Kennedy, Scherzer, A Sanchez

Of those 4....I would personally drop Plouffe if you have another SS coming back soon. Then Hosmer. You didn't mention it being a keeper or anything and he has been absolutely horrid. But any of the last 3 could go depending on who YOU think will have a better ROS. Personsonally, I'd rather be rid of Hosmer's mediocrity in non-keepers.

This all dictates if this is a keeper carry over league, as Hosmer Plouffe and Reddick all have value there.

I wouldn't worry about Pestano, but would keep my eye on Beckett and Dempster, might even dump A.Sanchez (not having a good season) for one of them.

Thanks guys! It is a keeper but I didn't include that because I highly doubt any of the 4 players will be kept (barring insanely good second halfs).

I viewed Pestano as a must-add because he leads the league in holds and has been having a great season, so having him alone makes me competitive in the holds category every week. I actually ended up dropping Sanchez for him because I just couldn't decide between the 4 batters (and I still have 9 starters), but I will be looking to add Beckett or Dempster soon so I will have another dilemma coming up! :-)

How many do you keep? Hosmer is the real deal. Just had a really bad first half...

We are keeping 4 next season. Each keeper can be owned for a max of 3 consecutive seasons. My keepers this year were Cano, Kershaw, and Hamels. Each additional year you keep a guy the cost goes up by one round of a draft pick.

pitching staff is completely sick. Kershaw, hamels and you somehow got both Sale and Mcdonald? Not sure how a staff could get better than that. So there is zero need for sanchez. I dont see closers so maybe you didnt list. So id drop sanchez, swisher, plouffe (in that order). Personally id hold onto Plouffe until he stops producing.

I'd probably drop Plouffe. Being a keeper league, don't drop Hosmer. Maybe drop Swisher over Plouffe. I wouldn't pick up Beckett right now, Dempster seems more reliable as of late.

Help here?
