Crunch Time. Drop Bell for hitter? WHIR please

Postby jruffus1 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 10:36 pm

I am in a 12-team H2H Keeper and am 2 points behind first. I need to win first, only 1.5 weeks to go! My offense is struggling, and I am already down HOLDS by 2 (he has 3 HOLD relievers), so I was thinking that I should drop Bell to pickup an extra bat (especially with Kemp questionable).

Should I Drop Heath Bell for a hitter like Alvarez, Jay, K Kendrick? Do you think Bell will even get his job back this season?

Roster:

C - M Montero
1st - Rizzo
2nd - Kinsler
3rd - Fraizer
SS - Castro
OF - Kemp
OF - Holliday
OF - Bruce
Util - Ethier

Bench: Ortiz (DL), Lawrie (DL)

SPs:

Lester
Bumgarner
J Johnson
Wainwright
B Anderson
Harrison
Hanson
Bauer
Cashner (DL)

RPs:

Papelbon
Holland
Johnson

Bell
Belisario

So, I don't think Bell will get the job back. Cishek has been too good. You need to factor whether cutting a holds guy will cost you more than not picking a bat. With that said, grab alvarez if you need a Bat. He's on fire.

Good luck.

My view is this: Bell is not even the best holds guy on his own team--I think that is Mike Dunn. You can probably do better on the waiver wire. Guys like Mujika, Belisle, Doolittle are all good holds guys if you need one. So my view is you should dump Bell and grab Alvarez is on fire. He can be plugged in at 3B and move Fraizer to 1B replacing Rizzo.

FYI, Bellsario may now be the temp closer with Jensen hurt, so you may have no hold guys left on your roster.

I agree, don't see Bell getting his job back. Drop him for Alvarez, you really need some offensive depth.
