Morales worth a spot in an 8-team league? WHIR

Postby ron paul for pres » Sun Apr 07, 2013 6:35 pm

8 team, H2H, 5x5

Morales had a good day today, but he's been terrible so far this season. Give him some time, or cut bait? He's in my UT spot.

FA options include Berkman, Werth, Aoki, Cuddyer

I'm actually leaning toward Cuddyer. I know he may not keep it up for long, but he's raking with Tulo and Cargo. I don't mind a short-term solution here. Also don't mind dropping my bench guys (Revere and Hardy) either for a bat or a SP. (SP options include Cobb, Lohse, Estrada, Shelby, Iwakuma and Ryu.)


Current roster:

C - Rosario
1B - Fielder
2B - Kendrick
3B - Miggy
SS - Tulo
MI - Weeks
CI - Middlebrooks
OF - McCutcheon
OF - J Hamilton
OF - Heyward
OF - Morse
OF - Victorino
UT - Morales
BN - Revere, Hardy

SP - Strasburg, Darvish, Bumgarner, Gio, Miley, Vogelsong, Teheran
RP - Romo, Wilhemsen, Grilli

Quick answer: In an 8 team league, Morales is a replacement level bat. Do not feel bad about cutting him.

I'd cut him for Cuddyer or Aoki.

Thanks for your help!

Im a Berkman fan. That lineup and the chance that a healthy Berkman can be somewhat close to what he was a couple years ago is worth it. Morales isnt anything special

I'd probably let go of Hardy for Cobb and stick with Morales for now.

Definitely cut morales. Berkman always starts out hot so short term he is a great option. But cuddyer is hot and should be in line for a nice year so i'd go with him. Help me? viewtopic.php?t=458078
