Off to a great start...would you make any moves? [100% WHIR]

Postby TruYankeeFan » Tue Apr 23, 2013 7:31 am

Morning guys...

So after 3 weeks I am off to a solid start and in 1st place (I know small sample still...but I am confident).

There are still some solid guys on waivers...and trying to decide if guys like Mike Morse are just waiting to explode again...of if I am better off with someone on wavers.

LEAGUE DETAILS....

10 team h2h, 5x5 catgegory keeper league w/ with weekly scoring, daily roster changes, Max 6 waiver moves a week, Min 7 Innings Pitched. Scoring is slightly different than standard leagues...see below.

Scoring catagories:
Offense: Runs (R), Runs Batted In (RBI), Total Bases (TB), On-base Percentage (OBP), Net Stolen Bases (NSB)
Pitching: Innings Pitched (IP), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

My current roster:
C: Y Molina
1B: Prince Fielder
2B: Chase Utley
3B: Evan Longoria
SS: Alcides Escobar
OF: Carlos Gonzalez
OF: Bryce Harper
OF: Yoenis Cespedes
Util: Todd Frazier
BN: Mike Morse, Everth Cabrera, Daniel Murphy

SP: Clayton Kershaw, Kris Medlen, Jordan Zimmermann, Roy Halladay, Hiroki Kuroda, Wade Miley, Shelby Miller, Wandy Rodriguez Michael Pineda (DL)
RP: Aroldis Chapman, Huston Street, Jim Henderson, Ryan Madson (DL)

I am thinking of dropping Mike Morse...as I am not sure this is a slump as much as a correction. Would you drop him or anyone else on my roster for one of the guys below? or stand pat for now?

FA Batters:
Travis Hafner
Daniel Nava
JP Arencibia
Vernon Wells
Jean Segura
Nate Schierholtz
Brandon Crawford
Chris Johnson
Gerardo Parra
Matt Carpenter
AJ Pollock
Alejandro De Aza
Franklin Gutierrez
David DeJesus
Chris Denorfia
Brandon Moss
Brett Gardner

FA Pitchers: (n I need help with ERA and WHIP...lost these two every week!)
Joulys Chacin (back off DL in a week)
Junichi Tazawa (would be solely to help 2 bad cats)
Darrn O'Day (would be solely to help 2 bad cats)
Joe Ortiz (would be solely to help 2 bad cats)
Ervin Santana
Patrick Corbin
Drew Smyly (solid relief #s and should be a starter sooner or later thanks to Porcello)
Garrett Richards
Mark Melancon (would be solely to help 2 bad cats)
Santiago Casilla (would be solely to help 2 bad cats...well and the occasional save)
Ryan Cook (would be solely to help 2 bad cats)


Thanks in advance!

Leave a link, and I will get back to you after I get back from work today. ;-D

I'd consider Schierholtz or Hafner to replace Morse. On te pitching side, you don't need help, but Chacin and Santana bear watching.

Help here?

I'd drop Morse for Segura now. Segura has looked great and I think he has the pedigree to be really good.

please help my two posts..this one and the one about Cain. Thanks.

Yea Segura needs to be owned. He would be an upgrade, maybe you could deal off one of your extra MI for an OF for depth or after doing that move dump Alcides for Vernon Wells (ride the hot hand in OF) or Gardner for an upgrade to speed for off days.
