Urbina worth a roster spot?

Postby kage812004 » Tue Feb 22, 2005 12:55 am

is Urbina worth a roster spot, my gut is telling me he will close at some point this season

i am considering dropping P.Byrd, V.Zambrano, or D.Haren for him but im not sure if should even bother??

I'd probably dump Haren and pick up Urbina .... he could be of very good value if he gets traded.

I would drop Haren for him unless it is a keeper or dynasty league

However depending on your roster and scoring categories I may consider dropping either of the other two pitchers as well
I really don"t like Byrd this year so I may drop him and depending on your roster I may drop Zambrano if you can"t handle the WHIP his is gonna give you

I'd rather drop V-Zam than Byrd to be honest. And is your league a dynasty keeper? If not, then keeping Haren would be pointless since you definitely shouldn't even be considering keeping him for the '06 season.

I have Byrd rated lower than most do so take that with a grain of salt

Not unless your league counts holds.

I certainly wouldn't drop Byrd, Haren or V.Zam for him if it doesn't.
