Should I pick up Tim Salmon?

Postby timkell » Thu May 30, 2002 10:52 pm

He's getting pretty hot now. Here's my outfield:
Adam Dunn
Austin Kearns
Mike Cameron
JD Drew
Larry Walker

I'm thinking of dropping Cameron. Would this be stupid? I can't decide! Salmon has been pretty awful for over year, but he's been awesome for the last month. Last year he was injured, so maybe he's turned it around. What do you think?

This is tough. Overall, I like Salmon's odds of putting it all together better than Cameron's, and you're right about Cameron being terribly cold now. On the other hand, Cameron's speed is a huge asset.

Follow your instincts and go with Salmon if you have other players who will give you steals, stick with Cameron if you don't.

I'd take him over Kearns, for one reason, and that is rotation, plus the fact that the Angels are on fire.

Is this a keeper league? Additionally, how many teams and what is the type of league Roto 5X5, 4X4, a points league? This all makes a difference.

If i were you i'd attempt to do a 2-1 and package Kearns with someone else. Rumor has it his bum thumb...you know the one that kept him out half of last year is acting up. He probably has a nice value right now and if you do a 2-1 you get Salmon so i becomes a 2-2.
