3B Zimmerman: What To Do - WHIR

Postby tnbrave » Thu Aug 08, 2013 4:21 pm

Have Zimmerman at 3B in a 10-team H2H Weekly Points League. Team is as follows:
C McCann
1B Fielder
2B Kinsler
SS Desmond
3B Zimmerman
OF Trout
OF Bautista
OF Marte
DH Granderson
Bench
C. Gonzalez
Trumbo
A. Jackson

SP Bumgarner
SP Corbin
SP Greinke
SP Garza
RP Balfour
RP Reed
Bench
Latos
Burnett

Is there anything I can do to upgrade at 3B? Trade deadline has passed in our league. Thinking of dropping Granderson and picking up someone; however, the WW is slim pickings. Those avaiable include the following:
A. Ramirez
Lawrie
Sogard
Gyorko
Chavez
Arenado
K. Johnson
Descalso

Are any of these a temporary fix for Zimmerman? Or do I just roll with Zimmerman? Thanks.

First, you most certainly should NOT drop Granderson. He's been a 40-homer guy for 2 straight years and could hit 10-12 HR from here on out. It may be unpopular, but I'd rather drop Trumbo and add Lawrie.

No don't drop Trumbo , drop A.Jackson no power no speed and he's not going to affect your ratios much (ba-obp)at this time of the year and pick up Lawrie.

This.

Don't drop Grandy or Trumbo. A Jackson has been pretty cool lately and isn't stealing or hit HR's. Pick up Lawrie. he has been red hot since returning from the DL.

Somewhat restrictive rules in our league. Bottomline, I cannot drop Trumbo or A. Jackson. I have two options:

1. I can drop Granderson and replace him with Lawrie or one of the other 3Bs off the list [and keep the 3B indefinitely] or
2. I can keep Granderson, put CarGo on the DL, and pick up Lawrie or another 3B [can only keep 3B until CarGo returns].

If I want another 3B for any an indefinite period I would have to drop Granderson.

Which do you think?

In that case, I would just put Cargo on the DL and pick up Lawrie for the time being. Hopefully in 2 weeks when CarGo is back, Zimmerman will be heating up. Or then you can reconsider dropping Grandy for someone else if all else fails.
