pick up Aviles?

Postby screwyinstlouie » Sun Apr 22, 2012 4:54 pm

Mike Aviles just became a Free Agent in my league. Should I drop Kuroda for him? Aviles' position flexibility at SS-2B-3B would be good to have. But my SP staff (not that great to begin with) just took 2 hits yesterday, with D. Hudson & Dempster going on the DL.

Yahoo Public 12-team mixed, non-keeper, 5x5, daily lineup changes, 23-man roster + 1 DL. 1400 IP limit (currently at 169.2 IP, +40.1 over). My team:
SP - CJ Wilson, R. Romero, Kuroda, Minor, Worley, Peavy
RP - Jim Johnson, Capps, Myers, Henry Rodriguez
C - Posey
1B - Miguel Cabrera
2B - Ackley
3B - Aramis Ramirez
SS - H. Ramirez
OF - McCutchen, Pence, Werth
Util - Maybin, Freese
BN - Reimold, Crawford (DL), Dempster (DL)
DL - D. Hudson

Free Agents as of 4/22 include:
SP - Buchholz, Burnett, Chacin, Danks, Detwiler, Floyd, Humber, Niese, Nolasco, Norris, Saunders
RP - Adams, Thornton
C - Ianetta, Lucroy, R. Martin, Ruiz, Saltalamacchia, Soto, K. Suzuki
1B - Gamel, Helton
2B - Espinosa
SS - Aviles, Drew, Y. Escobar, Alex Gonzalez
OF - Bay, Ibanez, Jay, Kubel, Pierre, Presley, Quentin, Rios, Span, Tabata

Thanks for any input.

Meh... I definitely wouldn't drop Kuroda. I'd hold tight with your team.

Nobody else agrees with me on Buchholz, but I would definitely stash Clay on your bench if you can.

And if you want to get an Aviles/Ackley platoon going I would probably drop Reimold... I'm just not a huge Reimold fan.

With all those SP on the WW, I would rather use the spot to stream starters than pick up a guy that will just sit on your bench. There is a lot of quality SP and if you pick the best matchups it could really work out for you.
