Who to drop for Haren?

Postby medium_robin » Sat Jul 14, 2012 4:27 pm

I am currently in 2nd place in my 9-team roto league. It seems like a waste to leave Haren on the waiver wire, especially since the reports of his work since going on the DL are so good.

Here's my team...who should I drop:
C - McCann
1B - Pujols, Butler, Hosmer, Youkilis
2B - Craig
SS - Lowrie
3B - Beltre, A. Ramirez
OF - J. Upton, McCutchen, Ellsbury, Reddick, Markakis
SP - Sale, Sabathia, Greinke, Harrison, Vogelsong, Morrow (DL)
RP - Putz, Perez, Frieri

From a talent perspective, I'm leaning towards Harrison. His WHIP is meh and K/BB (a stat in my league) is mediocre. But he'll pad my win totals. Reddick has too much pop to let fly. Honestly, I want to drop Hosmer...but WHAT IF HE TURNS IT AROUND!?!

100% WHIR.

I think Hosmer, Maqrkakis, and Harrison are your 3 most droppable players. If it's not a keeper/dynasty, I may lean towards dropping hosmer, even if he does "turn it around" you have tons of 1b depth. If it is a keeper, I may drop Markakis, over-rated he is.

It is a keeper league...short term (3-year max) so I probably won't keep Hosmer either way. But I'll drop markakis. I am OF-heavy and the O's are fading.
