Dropping Aoki

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

Dropping Aoki

Postby Giacoo » Tue Jun 25, 2013 4:39 pm

Aoki is really giving me nothing in this scoring system.

I read Zimm is nursing an injury of some sort?

Maybe I drop Lind/Aoki for Arcia/Carter or Arcia or Carter and Rendon?

And how confident are you about keeping McClouth?

Suggestions? Thanks.

I would be ok doing him for the hot hand. None of those guys are solid bets for all season.

So you would keep LInd?

Weeks had two HR yesterday and is on fire lately. What about picking him up and drop Aoki?

And Arcia could be worth a pickup? On close scrutiny, he is at least worth strong consideration then.

Then grab Weeks and Oswaldo. Again play the hot hand. None of these guys are going to be big performers over the entire season so grab the ones that are playing the best right now but keep watching the WW to see if someone else starts heating up.

Well, I can't afford playing the hot hand. I am trying to get my roster for ROS players.

Each transaction costs money in this league.

I know I am dropping Aoki although what about Lind?

Is anyone else a believer in Lind?

I was searching all season looking for 1B and then grabbed Lind. Lind has done it before and he just put another over the wall a few minutes ago. He's better then most guys that are on waivers and anyone better is gonna cost someone of decent value from your squad in a trade.

You have Gordon on your bench and he is better then any of the guys you have listed. I would b putting him in and pick one of those others for a bench spot based on who is going the best at the time. Maybe pick up Weeks in the hope he keeps performing like he did the other night so you can trade him. Another reason to get Weeks is that you could move Zobrist around to the OF as needed because of an injury or match-ups. I grabbed Peralta for my bench for that same reason n my league. Having Zobrist is a nice player to have for that flexibility.

That makes sense. And I like the idea. Just don't know if Weeks will keep this up. He's so streaky it's frustrating to own him. Although, I do know he heats up usually later in season.

Thoughts please on dropping Lind? I think he is replaceable and probably won't give me any trade value.

I like, just by looking: DeAza (CF, so more FPCT and A, plus all-around help in other cts), Arenado (low K%, nice power, could play him at home), Werth (against righties for TB). Rendon/Schierholtz interesting but have low power/speed contributions.
