Pagan with #1 WW Priority?

Postby TrippySG » Thu Apr 14, 2011 9:57 am

So someone just dropped Pagan in my 12 team league. My other OF are Bautista, Gardner, Swisher and Cuddyer (I promise I wasnt trying to get NYY here). I dont really like Cuddy over Pagan, especiallly in my league where XBH are a 6th batting category, and I need some more power in my team. Other players out there are:
Sam Fuld
Brennan Boesch
Logan Morrison
Dexter Fowler
Austin Jackson
Angel Pagan

Is Pagan worth a #1 WW priority or should I pick one of these other guys. This is NOT a keeper league so I dont care about productivity down the line, just this yr.

I would watch Detroit closely. Boesch is very intriguing. I'm personally riding Fuld because I have Rajai Davis on the DL and I needed Steals. I wouldn't really say that Pagan is your best power option, and I wouldn't use a #1 waiver pick on him. Patience might be your best option here.

None of those guys really stick out. I would not give up number 1 waiver priority for Pagan, not really worth it. I would wait a little longer before making any decision, none of those guys are really an upgrade.

Hi,

Fuld isn't a bad option, but Morrison is the guy I would target first.

Morrison and Pagan over Cuddyer

Even if you don't believe in Morrison's HR power (which I do) he still hit a lot of doubles last year. And Pagan is crazy underrated. 6-10 HR and 30-40 SB's along with a reasonable avg. He shouldn't be in waivers.

As far as Cuddyer the only reason to own him is if you need him at 3B (like I do) or are hoping that he gets 2B eligibility (he might). And he is my favorite baseball player if that is worth anything.
