Advice? Pick up Middlebrooks, Hosmer, Murphy....

Postby millini » Sat Apr 20, 2013 2:52 am

A lot of offensive players available on waivers in my ten team league. Hafner, middlebrooks, hosmer, murphy all free agents. unfortunately, i can't find anyone i should drop for any of them right now. Anyone think i should make a move?

Reyes is also available, so i could switch him and garza while i make a move. could drop v. martinez, lohse, or fernandez?

I hate to see those guys on the wire, but I just can't see anyone to drop. I thought about Benoit but he's been great and could end up with the closer job. You'd say Cuddyer but he's been playing great. However, is one of those Carl Crawfords a Brandon Crawford? I would drop B-Craw for Pronk, the way he's loving NY right now.

I would drop Vmart for Middlebrooks or Murphy at this point. Vmart is not doing squat and is only Util elig in most leagues.

Middlebrooks had one good game and has been an abomination otherwise, I wouldn't make the move for him. I'd probably go with Hafner for the time being, and keep playing the hot hand.

Jose Reyes is FA? I would rather stash him than Garza...I'd make that switch and probably grab Hosmer and hope he turns it around so you can have 1b insurance you seem set otherwise.
