Cant make decision on who to cut |WHIR|

Postby tah161 » Thu Jun 16, 2011 10:45 am

So my league is a 7x7 league and I am currently in 2nd place. It is a head 2 head league Team below
Hitting: avg, 2b, 3b, HR's, RBI's, SB's, and Runs
Pitching: Wins, saves, k's, era, whip, quality starts, and complete games

So my biggest holes right now are at SS, 3B, and left field. I figure I will keep riding Gordon until or if he drops significantly. My problem is Heyward just came off the DL so I need to activate him before I can make any moves. My leagues starts a LF, CF, and RF so there for I can just throw him in the LF spot and keep Choo in the RF spot. The league also only starts one catcher, so I dont really need both Wieters and Santana unless I can cut somewhere else. Some teams in my league need a hitting catcher though so hopefully they will try to make a deal. (I offered Liriano and Wieters for Price (hopefully it gets some talks going))

My more obvious solution would be to cut Huff, moved Gordon to the LF slot and start Moustakas, but I feel Huff is on the verge of turning it around, as he normally starts fairly slow. Or cut Carpenter.

I have picked up Santana, Huff, Choo, and Jeter along with Hanson and Carpenter from the waiver wire throughout the season.

What do you guys think would be the smart move here as to not hurt my team. My team got off to a slow start (against the first place team) but I have been catching up since week 2.

Here is my team:

C: Carlos Santana
1B: A-Gonz
2nd: Zobrist
3rd: Alex Gordon
SS: Alex Gonzales
LF: Aubrey Huff
CF: Matt Kemp
RF: Shin Sho Choo
UTL: Big Papi
BN: C: Matter Wieters
BN: 3B: Moustakas
DL: Jeter
DL: Heyward (recently activated)

SP: Lester
SP: Hanson
RP: Sergio Santos
RP: Madson
P: Storen
P: Liriano
P: Matt Cain
BN: Hellickson
BN: Carpenter
BN: Gallardo

You picked up Hanson off the WW? I wish I was in your league! But yeah.. cutting Huff is the way to go.

Bye bye Huff, and see if you can trade Wieters for a different backup.

Please help with mine
