Lee Or Swisher?

Postby brenzie » Thu May 31, 2012 7:32 am

10 team H2H

I am activating Craig today and with 2b eligibility he can play for my Pedroia. I have narrowed down who I will release between Carlos Lee and Nick Swisher. Both have pros and cons: Lee has better AVG but Swish has better HR/RBI's. Which one of these guys should I keep?

I would go with Lee because he fits your team mold better. You have a oslid hitting team with no drains other than Swisher. Lee has been solid at the plate this year hovering around 300 getting plenty of RBI and sports a 430 slugging so I'd go with him. You seem to have little speed. And it looks like that Peds will miss the DL and only be out about a week or so. I would look to activate Craig and dump Swisher I guess.

Lee is a safe hold, whereas Swisher is quite streaky. Though you may miss out on those hot streaks and some counting stats, Lee won't harm the lineup and you won't have to worry about him. I say stick with the old Astro.
