Pick up Heyward?

Postby ron paul for pres » Sat Aug 03, 2013 5:20 pm

8 team, H2H, 5x5, keep 3

Heyward seems to be putting it together, and it looks like he could have a great second half. I'd like to pick him up, but I don't see who I could drop.

Current roster:

C - Victor Martinez
1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Howie Kendrick
3B - Miguel Cabrera
SS - Troy Tulowitzki
MI - Jean Segura
CI - Mark Trumbo
OF - Andrew McCutchen
OF - Jose Bautista
OF - Jay Bruce
OF - Wil Myers
OF - Yasiel Puig
UT - Starling Marte
BN - Michael Cuddyer

SP - Yu Darvish
SP - Stephen Strasburg
SP - Madison Bumgarner
SP - Gio Gonzalez
SP - Patrick Corbin
SP - Shelby Miller
SP - Hisashi Iwakuma
SP - Julio Teheran
RP - Kenley Jansen
RP - Sergio Romo
RP - Rex Brothers
DL - Jason Grilli

I like Heyward but I dont see any easy option to drop. Maybe Brothers, depends on how long he keeps the job though

Nice team. I rather have Heyward than Cuddyer or Marte.

I don't see anyone on your team worth dropping for Heyward right now.

Id probably drop Brothers... Heywards upside is too great to sleep on him.

Who knows if Brothers gets kept as closer.... I would feel like a fool keeping Brothers over Heyward if Betancourt regains the closer role...

Maybe and I say (maybe) Shelby Miller (yes he's been solid) but he will (of your choices be shut down for sure) and having three closers is always good (assuming you don't start all those P). But honestly all the options you have are at worst equal to or superior. Can you trade?
