Cutting C. Quentin

Postby woodson_28 » Thu Jun 30, 2011 10:38 pm

10 team keeper league. I'm just tired of owning Quentin. I'm thinking about cutting him and just playing a hot batter. I know if I keep him, then I'm looking at .260 avg w/ 30 HR power.

7x7 w/: H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS

N. Markakis
C. Lee
V. Wells
M. Cabrera
M Reynolds
C. Crisp

I'm doing well w/ HR, RBI, but struggling w/ AVG, Hits and SB. It's H2H though, not roto.

My team:
C: Santana
1B: Pena
2B: Kinsler
3B: A. Gordon
SS: Tulo
OF: Berkman, Quentin, Heyward
UTIL: N. Cruz
BN: Pujols (DL)

The only person on that list that I see as a good fit is Boesch, and onyl because hes done so well in the limited time we've seen him. But what stat are you tired of seeing? If its avg you can count most of those guys out, and if you want SB instead of HR go with Crisp, I guess...but is he really more valuable to your team? If I was you I would explore trade options with Berkman, who cannot possibly last a season putting up those number while playing in the field. See if you cant upgrade truely at 3B,not a half upgrade like reynolds who sacrifices power and run opportunites while contributing nothing in SB. Quentin can be frustratin, but I think hes better than anyone you listed across the board, maybe besides Boesch, whos never played a full season so who knows. One thing Quentin has shown is that you can count on him to put up the offensive numbers. And really, who cares about SB, you can forfeit that 1 category and still be the season champion. A SB guy can get you R and SB, but every time a power hitter gets a HR it contributes in 4 of the 5 categories, and thats not something that comes cheap. Offense is down alll over thr grid this yr, if you really want to give up on Quentin, trade him for a pitcher, whose value has never been less appreciated than this yr.

Boesch would help and Crisp woudl give you speed you need. However, I wouldn't cut anyone you have right now. Whats your pitchers?

This really surprises me... I've never played in a keeper league, but what's wrong with a .260 average and 30 HR????? I have Quentin too and my only dilemma is to play him or Howie Kendrick in my 2nd utility spot??
