Need hitting, dropped Ben Francisco, but pick up whom?

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

Need hitting, dropped Ben Francisco, but pick up whom?

Postby Zebo » Mon Jun 09, 2008 12:24 pm

I am between Jose Guillen and Alexi Ramirez, Swisher and Chase Headley are also possibilities. Which should I settle on short term and long term?

Swisher, Swisher, Swisher!!
He is going to tear it up in June. He has brought his average up 20 points since June 1st, and is on a 7 game hit streak.
That and the Sox are playing Det/Col/Pit in the next 3 series...so you can look forward to lots of runs being put up by the Sox.

Not really.
He is a rookie, and doesn't have the track record that Swisher does. Its a bigger gamble to pick up Alexi over Swisher.
And over the last couple of games, Ramirez has been moved to hitting 9th in the lineup.

Guillen hit another HR today. This time off Rivera. He stomped on the Yankees.
Johnny Ringo: All right, 'lunger'. Let's do it.
Doc Holliday: Say when.

I now picked up both of these schmohawks, dropping Ben Fran for Jose Guillen, dropping R. Soriano for Swisher, I also picked up Crede by dropping Masterson. I should have picked up these 3 yesterday, and would have been credited with 3 home runs today. :x

Solid moves.

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.

I like all 3 of those moves. I've been trying to get Swish all year but his owner is being a douchebag
