Dunn vs Willingham? WHIR

Postby BravesGuy » Sun Apr 08, 2012 9:04 am

Adam Dunn went undrafted in my league and when BJ Upton was put on the DL I picked Dunn up to fill the spot on my roster.
Now I do not want to drop him. When BJ comes off the DL who should I drop?

Willingham? Norris?

I suppose dropping Norris would be the call here if you really want to hang onto Dunn. Chacin and Norris are similar, but one plays for the Astros. Might as well keep some Wins handy with Chacin.

Yeah, you have enough very good pitchers. If you decide to keep Dunn, drop Norris.

Tough call, I'd rather drop no one, haha.

If it comes down to Dunn v. Willingham specifically, I'd rather have Willingham. I think he gets vastly underrated. You already have a handful of guys who can go for 30 HRs (Pujols, Stanton, Braun...arguably A-Rod). I'd rather go with the consistency of Willingham over the high HR possibility of Dunn.

If you'd be willing to drop a pitcher, I might even hang on to Norris and drop Chacin, but I understand the argument against Norris as an Astro. I just think he makes a big leap this year, while Chacin may continue regressing.

I would drop Willingham. Or if you want to drop a pitcher keep Norris and drop Chacin. I like Norris better for his K ability.
