Swisher

Postby Doc Holliday » Mon Jun 09, 2008 3:05 pm

Two homers today. One form each side. Of course I go to pick him up in the one league he was a free agent and some Shmohawk had snagged him.

Not sure about long term, but the white-sox look like they and swisher are heating up at the same time. I'd stick with the streaking player.

As I said in yesterday's post, Swisher is getting hot, and should be picked up. If anyone had him in the beginning of last year can tell you, when he's hot, he hits lots of home runs.

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.

Worth dropping Votto for? My gut says no. Or maybe I'm hungry.

Don't drop Votto for him, but isn't there someone else you can drop for him?

I don't. And I wouldn't drop Glaus for Swish. Swish may have a couple dingers in 2 games, but Troy's got 5 in the last 10 games. That's a hot streat. Swish could be a fluke.

I put Swish in the about same monitor/pickup category that I recently placed Delgado in. Just ask Grey (who opted to keep him on the bench all weekend).

this is the team I dropped greinke for to pick up alexei earlier today. Dropping a pitcher isnt an option as Im already behind the ball in IP and we score holds. I don't see anybody really expendable except perhaps kaz. He was a Grey recommended pickup to supplement steals.

Yeah, I'd hang on to Kaz. I still like him more than Alexeiei. He's like a poor man's Brian Roberts. In fact, he if you adjust his 2007 stats for the number of ABs that Roberts had last year, they were almost identical. The steals were +/- 1, and avg was comparable. Kaz was on track for 30 more runs than Roberts, while Roberts had, like, 12 HR while Kaz had a hypothetical 6 HR (I don't remember exactly, but it was something like that).

Then again, I guess it's worth noting that Kaz had ~150 ABs fewer for a reason. I'm not saying he's injury prone, I'm kust cayin' there may have been some fissures.
