Playofs - Victorino & Swisher?

Postby Pav » Fri Aug 24, 2012 10:53 am

I know I can't drop Victorino. But he is just doing NOTHING for me and I can't afford to start an OF like this. Playoffs coming soon.

Come Monday I will pick up Murphy for Scutaro, and play Murphy except against lefties, and maybe my team will be better.
I will keep Altuve and Victorino on my bench.

Now, should I roll with Swisher over likes of Pagan....or maybe lesser extent Coco Crisp, Bryan LaHair?

Util Edwin Encarnacion (Tor - 1B,3B)

BN Marco Scutaro (SF - 2B,3B,SS)

Pagan, Lahair and Crisp are next to worthless in the long run. Swisher is very streaky but at least you know what you have. The same for Victorino. I would play it safe. I really do not think you are winning or losing on whether you drop Victorino for the likes of Crisp. Anything is possible, but trying to catch lightning in a bottle is just a bad play imo. More often than not you hurt yourself trying. Sometimes you just have to roll with the best players you have and hope you get lucky. My 2 cents.

Good point! Thanks

What about with my pitching staff?

Since I am in the playoffs weeks 22-24, what should I consider doing with Lester and Wandy?

Also, I need to drop Pestano. Just not sure for whom. Another SAVES or HOLDS player below?

Lopez, Cishek, Gregerso?

Neice, Harvey ?

What are my best options to be most competitive with this type of catergories we have?
