Victorino vs. Pelfrey

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Victorino vs. Pelfrey

Postby haverjus » Wed Mar 04, 2009 9:46 am

This is first time I've posted on this site - I love the commentary, well done.
I'm in a 5x5 10 team NL only keeper league. $260 budget, we keep 8 with a $4 price increase for each kept player.

My keepers are as follows:
Soto - $14
Fielder - $20
Tulo - $12
Ludwick - $10
McLouth - $20
Victorino - $19
Lince - $11
Hamels - $12
I also have Lidge at $20 and Pelfrey at $5
See there a good reason I shouldn't trade both Lidge and Pelfrey for a couple of 2nd round reserve picks?
We can pick minor leaguers and unsigned FA in the reserve.

I wouldn't want Lidge for $20 or Pelfrey at all so if you can move them by all means. Also, I could see cutting your budget on your keepers. McLouth and Victorino are both solid but for $39 for the pair it's a lot. I'd probably try to move McLouth or not keep him for $20 and keep someone cheaper if that's at all a possibility. If you can't, it's not horrible to have McLouth for $20, but he's a bit pricey.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Yeah, I agree with you about McLouth being pricey but the nature of the league and the players who will be available in the next draft boosts his value. Unless I want to draft a SAGNOF (I think that is right) like Bourn or Tavares (both of whom I would have to overpay for) I would be left with little speed. Rollins will go for $40. Furcal is an injury risk and will still be expensive.

Thanks for the advice - this was the way I was leaning to begin with.

I know you aren't high on Pelfrey, but how come? He plays on a good team and seemed to get it in the second half of last year. Last year's workload is concerning but I think he avoided throwing a lot of breaking balls. Anyway, thanks!

Remember Victorino is a free agent after this season so keep that in mind.

I pulled the trigger and dealt Pelfrey and Lidge for a couple of decent 2nd round reserve picks. I'm happy with the deal, especially in light of Pelfrey's recent injury.

Thanks for the responses.
