Who To Cut?

Postby patriotracer2002 » Fri Aug 23, 2013 6:15 pm

I play in a H2H points based league. We have 2 DL spots, and are allowed to keep 12 players for next year(No more than 6 starting pitchers).

I have recently been bit by the injury bug, and am debating on who to cut from my DL. Playoffs begin next week so I have to make some moves. Below is my current team.

C: Joe Mauer(7 Day DL)
1B: Freddie Freeman
2B: Jason Kipnis
3B: Brett Lawrie
SS: Troy Tulowitzki
2B/SS: Open
1B/3B: Eric Hosmer
OF: Hunter Pence, Yasiel Puig, Dominic Brown, Adam Jones, Michael Bourn
Utility: Anthony Rizzo

Starting Pitchers: Homer Bailey, Matt Cain(15 Day DL), Ervin Santana, Matt Garza, Jarrod Parker, Jose Quintana, CJ Wilson, Anibal Sanchez, Lance Lynn, Dan Haren

Relief Pitchers(Holds = 5, Saves = 7): Jake McGee, Mark Melancon, Darren O'Day, Paco Rodriguez, JJ Hoover, Tanner Scheppers, Ernesto Frieri, Luis Avilan

2 DL Spots: David Wright, Roy Halladay

I plan on taking mostly hitters as my keepers, but should I axe David Wright to put Matt Cain on the DL or cut Halladay to put Cain on the DL? Also, what to do with Mauer because as we all know concussions are tricky. Any suggestions would be welcomed and greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Cut Halladay before Wright, Cain? WTF are you thinking (sorry for that...but anyone thinking of cutting a keeper in Wright is questionable.

How many pitching and hitting bench do you have? ANY?

I would cut Halladay move Mauer to DL and grab the best available C or MI which will give you the best chance to win. If you are in a dog fight for the playoffs I would cut Haren for the other starting position you are lacking. ;-D
