Need to fix my bench up a bit

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

Need to fix my bench up a bit

Postby Mickael » Sat Jul 05, 2008 10:47 am

Hi guys :) :mrgreen:
Basically I want to make a minor roster adjustment.
My weakest bats in the lineup are Overbay, S.Drew and Adam Laroche. With Polanco,Tulo and Cantu not to far behind.

I was wondering if you'd replace any of these players with someone who's a FA.
The Free Agent's include:
Ethier
Greene
Andrew Jones
Teahen
Duncan
Freddy Sanchez
Chris Perez
Jeff Baker
Lind
Alexei Ramírez
Bowker
Edmonds
Casey Blake
Blalock

Your helps would be appreciated.

PS:Love your site guys! :ugeek:

first off laroche is a buy low candidate as his typical splits suggest he'll get it going 2nd half of the season. i'd hold. drew is in a funk, but he's been pretty good and i don't see much better options on your WW. the guys i'd consider picking up would be (in order) baker, alexei, and ethier with the caveat that baker and ethieir are assured of PT right now due to injuries to helton and pierre, respectively - but may not be full-time players post ASB. the only guy you have who i think could be replaced is overbay and i'd take baker if you can put him at 1B and maybe casey blake. but really there isn't much better on the WW IMO

I think you got some good advice from nc dodgerdog. Only thing I'd add is Overbay is without upside and is boring as crap, you're better off taking a flier on upside. I'd drop Overbay and pickup Ethier, Lind, Baker or Bowker, in that order.

EDIT: That's assuming position doesn't matter.

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.
