Carlos Gomez worth a #2 WW Claim?

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

Carlos Gomez worth a #2 WW Claim?

Postby GoblueJD » Mon Apr 22, 2013 2:48 pm

Someone dropped him in my league, I dont really need steals per se and I dont love him but my thought process is that he could give me some depth and make certain guys expendable (Jennings) if I decided to make a move for pitching... Any thoughts?

First of all, in a 12-team single-catcher mixed league, I wouldn't be holding McCann...especially if I don't have a DL spot...you should have plenty of catchers getting hot as the season progress and the Braves will try to keep Gattis in the lineup if he keeps hitting like this...

This is Grey's take on Gomez (yes, Gattis is in the article)

I hear mixed reviews on Gomez...including buy low...

...bottom line, is you don't sound sure...though I think waiver wire priority is overrated (you pluck value when there is value)...you are basically trying to get a guy you hope turns things around vs. a guy you know will turn it around or a young guy with untapped upside...

you don't sound sure...but...he is heating up...I'm surprised he was dropped...odds are someone behind you in priority picks him up...there is plenty of season to go...if you don't have better on the wire...drop McCann and pick Gomez up (only if you still like him after reading Grey's take from about 10 days ago...I don't think Gomez is that bad...but who am I to argue with Grey...I see nothing...I know nothing)

perhaps Grey has softened just a bit
