Pick up Zack Cozart for Delmon Young? Help quick! WHIR!

Postby 49ersavior » Wed May 02, 2012 3:56 pm

My Team 12 Team H2H CBS Keeper league. Lineups lock weekly, scoring favors pitcher by a little, strikeouts and CGs/Shutouts

Here is my team with the # next to the name being the amount of points scored so far this year. Some guy just dropped Cozart for Will Middlebrooks (just got brought up by the Sox). With the Angels and aybar struggling, I'm thinking about picking up Cozart for young since it is a keeper league. I was thinking about dropping Young because of all of the drama surrounding him, but he's in such a potent lineup that I don't want to regret it. I do have a potent lineup though, and have morse coming of the DL in a month...hopefully. Thoughts?

I'm not sure you really need to rush out and get Cozart. He's best known for his defense. Does your league have defensive statistics?

I don't see Cozart being anything like, say, Starlin Castro or anything like that. Not sure you're really going to see much of an upgrade over Aybar. That said, I personally think we've seen the best we'll ever see from Aybar (last season). So, I guess I'm kind of negative about both players. :*)

Delmon can really mash it when he's on. Your better bet is to hang onto him and deal him when he's on a hot streak rather than tossing him to the wire. Like I say, not sure you're really going to see much upside in Cozart over Aybar anyway.

Personally I might go with Cozart, though I believe there's more risk involved with making that decision. You pretty much know what you're going to be getting with D. Young, but not so much with Cozart, obviously.

But I guess I would go with Cozart.
