Josh Beckett or Josh Reddick? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Aug 27, 2012 7:57 pm

I just added Beckett to see if he turns things around for LAD. But now I see Josh Reddick has cleared waivers. What to do?

-Hold onto Beckett
or
-Drop him for Reddick


In 2nd place, 2 games back of 1st. Top 2 teams get a bye. 3rd place team is 11.5 games back of 1st.

12 Team H2H DAILY LEAGUE with 6 Keepers Season to Season, each for 3 years max.

I don't see why you are concerned with picking up Reddick, your offense is pretty solid. Who is Reddick replacing?

As for Beckett, his support stats suggest improvement and moving to a more pitching friendly stadium and the NL west will definitely help.

It's not a complete no-brainer, but your lineup is loaded. Keep Beckett, maybe throw him in against Arizona this week.

Is it problematic that I have no bench hitters should someone not play or have off-days, etc?

I would say it's less problematic than you think. It honestly depends on your pitchers' inning limits per week and what your opponents are doing, but normally just roll out them pitchers. (Sometimes, if they're maximizing those AB and punting cats in pitching, I'd say follow suit and command those hitting Cats.)
