Proven vs. Unproven

Postby Armed and Hammered » Sat Sep 11, 2004 1:05 pm

Just wondering what peoples thoughts were on dropping proven stars that are under performing for unproven guys that are playing well? This is obviously not a keeper league.

I have Dmitri Young, Vernon Wells, Piazza who all stink right about now.

C Monroe, M Lamb, D DeJesus, are all available. Normally I would be crazy to make these moves but with lass than a month left, picking up a hot hand could help.

Is dropping proven vets who are struggling a bad move?

I'm dropping Wells for Monroe. I dropped Millar for Wright. I already dropped Piazza.

There's no more waiting time for these guys. Do what you have to do to win. :-C

Agree with the guys above. At this point in the season I wouldn't hesitate to drop any of these guys for hot replacements in a redraft league. ;-D
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Waiting for stars to get it together is unwise at this point. I dropped Mulder the other day (this league counts K/IP and K/BB ratios).

go ahead there are only a couple of weeks left in the season even if they do get it back together in the next week or so they arent going to be valuable

If the proven stars have not gotten it together by now, chances are extremely remote they will in these last 3 weeks. Go for the young stallions ;-D
