Help me decide what to do.

Look at my kick ass team! Look at my sorry ass team! Could someone look at my team and tell me what they think is right/wrong?

Help me decide what to do.

Postby Hole Camels » Fri Jun 13, 2008 11:13 pm

Okay, so here's the deal. Standard Yahoo! 12 team 5x5 H2H.

C- VMartDL
1st- Miggy Cabrera
2nd- Kelly Johnson
3rd- Chipper Jones
SS- Ryan Theriot
OF- Matt Holliday
OF- Hunter Pence
OF- Milton Bradley
Util- Conor Jackson
BN- Jay Bruce
BN- Edgar Renteria
DL- Ryan Church

SP- John Lackey
SP- Justin Verlander
RP- George Sherrill
RP- Brendan Morrow
P- Solomon Torres
P- Aaron Harang
P- Dustin McGowan
BN- Joe Saunders
BN- Ted Lilly
BN- J.J. PutzDL

My problem is, I have Church occupying my 1 DL slot, VMart down and the need to add a catcher to replace him, and J.J. Putz down, and Morrow already in his slot but no DL space to stash Putz either. I think my starting pitching is strong enough to survive with Putz on the bench, but I can't just not start a catcher every day. I don't want to drop Church because Bradley will brake down eventually, and be very droppable but until he cools down, I can't let him go. Bruce is also a question mark, and I expect him to continue to come back to earth. I shopped him around, but didn't get any bites. I can't just let him go for a catcher, though.

So do I drop Church to make room for VMart to make room for a catcher? He (Chruch) seems like the best candidate, given a recovery from his post concussion syndrome, to perform the best over the rest of the year among the three. Or do I drop Renteria? I've sort of been leaning that way. I could bet on Theroit, who I need for speed and runs anyway, and let Renteria go for one of the following:

Chris Synder
Miguel Olivio
Dioner Navarro
Rod Barajas
Chris Ianetta
Gerald Laird

In a 12 team 3 OF league, Ryan Church is an easy drop. Same with Renteria in a league without an MI.

Drop either or both.

I've stuck w/ Snyder all year in one league and he's been adequate. I'd gamble on Navarro if you need average and Olivo if you need power...
