Melky suspended for 50 games...help [AWHIR]

Postby TruYankeeFan » Wed Aug 15, 2012 3:13 pm

OK...so major blow to my team...in 1st by 10.5 so still in playoffs no matter what but just lost mad stats.

Meklman is juicing...and has been suspended 50 games. Melky admits his use and accepts the suspension. (just broke on MLB Network)

My Roster:
C-Napoli
1B-Prince
2B-Altuve
SS-Jeter
3B-Chris Johnson
OF-CarGo
OF-Melky Cabrera (asshole)
OF-B Harper
UT-A Craig
BN-, Cespedes, ARod(DL), Ruiz(DL)

SP-Kershaw, Dempster, Harrison, Zimmermann, Fiers, Buchholz, Shields, Maholm

RP -Chapman, Axford, Wilhelmson

12 team h2h catgegory w/ (r, rbi, tb, obp, netsb x ip, sv, k, era, whip) daily roster changes and 6 waiver moves a week.

Best F/A available now: (NEED A CATCHER DESPERATELY if I dont drop Ruiz or Napoli)
Wilin Rosario
Salvador Perez
Russell Martin
Adam LaRoche
Dexter Fowler
Torii Hunter
Carlos Gomez
Ryan Ludwick
Ben Revere
Justin Morneau
Angel Pagan
Eric Young
Jon Jay
David Phelps
Patrick Corbin
Alex Cobb

While this is primarily for my move to replace Melky...but any other suggestions/comments welcome.

Melky is an A-Hole. I just traded 2 top players for him 3 days ago. That bastard should have warned me!

I dropped the Melkman for Salvador Perez. Not the best F/A available...but fills in for Napoli and Ruiz for now

S Perez is actually a really decent C.

Perez is a good pickup.

And is anyone really surprised Melky Cabrera is a cheater? Man could not hit in NY. Could not hit in Atl to the point where they let him go. This explains a lot.

I'd go with Sal Perez also. He is good. You can proabably afford to drop one of those catchers if you need help elsewhere too.

Perez, LaRoche or Hunter only because he's in the best position any hitter can be in a batting order (between Trout and Pujols) would be the guys I'd look at if I were you.

Since you need the catcher as you said from your other thread, go for perez for sure

help please? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=451803
