Drop Melancon For?

Postby Philly_05 » Mon Mar 17, 2014 11:51 am

I was going to wait on cutting him for a SP. But I really don't see anyone I would really want at this stage. But a few bats are interesting. Would you drop Melancon for any of these in a 12 team H2H league with no holds. Would you want to keep him in case he takes over the closers role again. While helping with K's, WHIP and ERA. Would the extra pitcher be better used than a 6th OF when we start 3?

Potential Pickups
OF- Khris Davis
OF- Kole Calhoun
SS- Jonathan Villar

Roster
C- Brian McCann
1B- Allen Craig
2B- Jason Kipnis
3B- Manny Machado

OF- Yasiel Puig
OF- Will Myers
UT- Domonic Brown
Bench- Matt Adams, Nolan Arenado, Anthony Rendon, Christian Yelich, Oscar Teveras

SP- Clayton Kershaw
SP- Chris Archer
SP- John Lester
SP- Zack Wheeler
P- Joe Nathan

Trade one of your spare bats for a pitcher.
What is available, anyway?

I would drop Oscar Teveras, and pick up Chacin or Perez (Im guessing its Martin Perez) and keep Melancon, Melancon may be useful down the road.

That would be Jonathan Gray of the Rockies. Yes that is Martin Perez of the Rangers. I have Taveras locked into a 17th round keeper position forever.

I would drop Christian Yelich or Anthony Rendon, Or melancon to pick up Martin Perez, Martin Perez is a very good sleeper IMO. and would give great fantasy value. Chacin has some good stuff too. Seems like a lot of people like Christian yelich, I do not know why, maybe you can answer that for me

Not sure what is not to like about Yelich. Top prospect pedigree that showed well in limited action last year. Can give you average, pop and stolen bases. A great young OF playing on a crappy team. That's how I view him. I don't think 20/20 is out of the question.

I would actually drop Melancon for Khris Davis or Estrada depending if you decide on a bat or arm. Both I think will have great seasons. Don't listen to whoever said to drop Yelich. ;-D

please help
