Schafer over Cespedes or Gamel to pick up SB? [Always WHIR]

Postby TruYankeeFan » Fri Apr 13, 2012 1:08 pm

Right now I am having a very good week in my 12 team h2h. Scoring stat categories are R, RBI, TB, OBP and netSB.

Going into today's games I am up 8-2 for the week...and have a real solid lead in 4 of the 5 hitting categories.

R - 18 to 9 lead
RBI - 12 to 4 lead
TB - 44 to 26 lead
OBP - .380 to .264 lead
NSB - 1 to 3 deficit

My only options are OF and Gamel (who now qualifies as a 1B)...but Prince is not being benched on a day he starts. So with only OF and UtIL to play I focus on SB?

I am starting Bourjos and Gardner today during the Yanks game. The have both shown signs of heating up...and both can run the bases from home to home in about 14 seconds (Bourjos did it day before

Right now I have Melky in the 3rd OF spot as he has been red hot to start the season and hitting infront of the Panda.

So who would you put in at UTIL?

Cespedes vs Felix (worst matchup but he did not seem to mind that 2 weeks ago)
Gamel vs Jurrjens (better match up but not quite the production of Cespedes)
Schafer vs Nolasco (matchup is about the same as gamel...but Scafer has been hitting for avg and I could use the steals)
trade help needed

Hmm, Nolasco has the ability to pitch well or sort of implode, so I would roll with Schafer and hope for some light production and SBs.
