Swisher, Aybar, and Morrison... drop who? (WHIR!)

Postby GiantFanatic » Mon May 09, 2011 12:42 pm

So, three guys I feel shouldn't be on waivers but are. Swisher is included because I think he's a valuable commodity, the other two because I could use them (steals from Aybar, Morrison for power). The question is, would you drop any of my guys to get them?

Roster is below. Standard Yahoo H2H, 12 team league.

C - R. Martin
1B - Pujols
2B - N. Walker
3B - A. Gordon
SS - Rollins
OF - Zobrist, Sizemore, Gardner
Util - McCann
Bench - Lowrie, Reynolds, Hart
DL - Utley

SP - Kershaw, Buchholz, Garza
P - Greinke, Morrow, Cueto
RP - Soria, Papelbon
Bench - Bumgarner, Bailey

My closer situation is a mess, I know, I bet on Boggs and Santos was the good horse. Waiting for Bailey. However, beyond that my team is fairly solid at this point... the only weaknesses are maybe the following:

J. Lowrie - Picked him up while he was hot. Less hot now, though solid and position elig is nice...
M. Reynolds - Turd-monster extraordinaire, looked okay and sucked sunday. Do I cut bait so early?
C. Hart - Again, looks like crap, but he's only been back a couple weeks.
M. Bumgarner - He's looked awesome the last few starts, loved his last start, but feels tenuous...

Interested in any thoughts/help. I passed on E. Santana who was on waivers because I didn't feel I had a place for him and he was finally picked up this morning... hope I don't regret that one.

I like Morrison over Reynolds. I love Mark's power potential, but he hasn't shown much inkling of that yet this season, and his average is such a killer.

I'd add Morrison and Aybar and leave Swisher on the wire.

In my fantasy baseball teams I like to have more pitchers on the bench than having players on the bench. You are never going to start Lowrie over Rollins and recently there has been a lot of hype about Boston's prospect Iglesias coming up for defensive purposes. Either player isn't going to produce fantasy worthy numbers. I would pick up Aybar and hold onto him before someone else does. I am not sure any of these players will start on your team though. If someone like Ervin Santana is still out there I would rather pick them up and drop a lowrie for them. Otherwise not much of a difference here between players, not a fantasy changing pickup or drop.
