Aoki or Choo for championship week? WHIR

Postby angels7777 » Mon Sep 17, 2012 11:04 am

Is it worth it to use one of my 3 weekly moves to drop Choo for Aoki and try to win steals, etc.
OR should I save my moves to stream in extra pitchers for strikeouts/wins later in the week?

I'd go Aoki there... your lineup is power heavy and speed light.

Do you normally find yourself having to stream pitchers by week end? If so I would probably hang on to your moves and go that route rather than potentially chasing 1 category (steals). You know your league the best and have gotten this far.

Doesn't Choo steal bases too? I always try to keep all of my adds reserved for emergency pitching during the final weeks. Every starter has their occasional blowout, and if it happens to one of yours, you going to need help!

Should I drop Jayson Werth Freddie Freeman or Mark Reynolds for Aoki? Aoki is on fire right now. I would have dropped Reddick but Reddick is entering a hot streak. Freeman was in one not sure if its over. Reynolds also prob hot streak is over no?
