Who to drop for Chris Young - WHIR

Postby Gnu314 » Wed May 25, 2011 10:08 am

A league mate couldn't take the batting average hit anymore and is a bit impatient, at any rate Chris Young is on Waivers.

I'm leading the league in average but I'm in the middle in RBI and HRs, this would give me another option to rotate in and out for OF.

My immediate gut tells me Francisco, but he's probably on a very long leash in Tor and shouldn't really be a problem long term.

As always, WHIR.

I'd lose Francisco. You'll still have 3 CL and closers come and go. He'll be replaceable somewhere down the road, while you'll be hard-pressed to find somebody to give you the production Young can.

Also agree Francisco is the guy to cut bait with. No one on your team really deserves to be in free agency, but Young is a nice pick up made even nicer that you can stash him on your bench til he starts hitting consistently. You have 3 good closers as it is and I'm sure you can find some saves later when new closers emerge.
