Future Dilemma

Postby Bloody Nipples » Sun Apr 18, 2004 11:08 pm

This post does not belong in any forum, so I decided to put it here. I have 3 DL hitters, and 2 DL spots. I picked up other hitters to replace the 2 that went in my DL spots.. When those two (Mauer and Reyes) come back, what should I do? I am probably going to drop Estrada, but what about Reyes? Who do I drop for him? Do I trade 2 for one? WHAT DO I DO?

MY ROSTER:

C: Estrada
1B: Konerko
2B: Jose Vidro

OF: Beltran
OF: Berkman
OF: Bibbons
OF: Dye
Util: Hafner
Util: Redman
BN: Joe Crede
BN: Teixeira (DL)

In my 12 team league, Mauer was/is a free agent. He's not really that valuable yet...don't fall in love with his name. I'd drop him.

I dont know why I would do that. Sure, hes the worst of my DL guys, but thats just cause he's unproven. He did well his only game ever, so I will take a chance on him. Anyway, Estrada is not that big of a guy to lose, so I am not worried about dropping him when the time comes. My real dilemma is with Reyes. I may drop Crede for him, but I'm thinking of dropping Crede for Lew Ford in the next week. My question is should I try and open a spot with a two for one, or simply drop somebody?

i dunno if that was intentional or not, it gave me a good laugh :-D

anyways a 2 for 1 would solve most of your problems... u should prolly trade for a C or improve your OF where "Bibbons" is your 3rd OF ;-)
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

Bibbons (I love my mistakes sometimes :-) ), is not my 3rd OF, Dye is. I just listed them that way arbitrarily. We play 4 OF anyway, so it doesnt matter. I dont want to trade for a catcher, because I have faith in Mauer. The place in my lineup I am most worried about is the infield, especially SS and 3rd. With Crede, Beltre, and Cabrera there, should I trade Crede or Beltre?

HAHA.. that was a funny mistake... Bibbons sounds pretty cool tho :-o

i think Cabrera and Cintron are pretty good considering the positions they play at but you can obviously updrade....so maybe do a 3 for 2 or 2 for 1 involving Hafner ( his value is prolly the highest it will be this year)... as for the IF slot id try to get a 1B cos theyre easier to get than a 2B or SS who puts up similar numbers...
Beltre is another guys whose value is high right now
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

well as a fellow Giants fan, I couldn't stomach having Beltre on any of my teams, but that has more to do with his inconsistencies than him being a Dodger. Since he's hot right now I'd trade him while his value is highest.
