Team Help: Add/Drop? How'd I do? (WHIR)

Postby Hummus » Mon Mar 11, 2013 12:14 am

How did I do? Based on the available players, do I drop anyone for any of the players available? 3 adds/wk. Should I add any depth at pitching? Pick up Morneau? Add Beachy for DL? Please help.

I'd dump Hanson for Brandon Beachy first stash him on the DL.
Free spot add: Kenley Jensen for extra pitching depth (nice 3rd closer too)
I'd probably ditch Michael Young for Bonifacio if he has his infield eligibilities as well. Looks like you could use some speed to go along with all that power you have.

I was thinking of Bonifacio providing he has multi position eligibilty. I also like Uggla as a sneaky stash over Jansen in case he refigures things out. Utley is meh at this poitn in his career...just a thought.

I was actually thinking about Uggla. Right now, since pitching is so thin, I am looking at picking up another arm. Given his spring, into which I do not put a great deal of stock, I was thinking about grabbing Rick Porcello. Lohse was just dropped as well, and given the fact that he has still not signed, is this a solid risk?

Should Porcello be owned given past fantasy performance? Lohse?

Utley carries some weight maybe package him with Hanson for something maybe a better pitcher then you could snag Uggla outta FA really they are about even as far as I'm concerned.

MadDog, you have been a great help.

With respect to the speed/power/pitching issue, I did the following:

Proposed Utley/Hanson for CJ Wilson

Dropped Alexei and picked up Youkilis. Youk is now hitting in the middle of the Yanks' lineup due to Texy's injury.
Dropped M. Young and Picked up Howie Kendrick. Both have solid lineups, and hitting behind hamilton, should work well in his favor and provide more SBs than Young. Now with Youkilis and Kendrick, I have position flexibility between the two, so I am relatively happy there.

Now, to complete my last move of the week, I am considering dropping Dunn for Arroyo, Billingsly, Porcello, or even Coco Crisp. That does not do much with with the pitching issue, but dropping Dunn, could be "okay" for me, as I think that I have enough power. It is either pick up more speed with Crisp or get a spot starter, which is what Dunn would be on the offensive end depending on the pitching matchup.

Please let me know what you think so I can finalize my roster. I hate having this much turnover before the season starts, but given the talent out there, I think I will be okay.

I took Dunn in the 3rd to last round, so I am not losing much. So, if you could, please let me know what you think about the two moves that I made and if I should drop Dunn for the above mentioned:
1. Arroyo
2. Billingsly
3. Porcello
4. Blanton
5. Crisp
6. Morneau

I'd hang onto Dunn with how few 40 HR hitters are out there. I'm all for stashing Beachy, I'd drop Ramirez for him
