Ike Davis - Should I activate his contract?

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?

Ike Davis - Should I activate his contract?

Postby Lucc » Wed Apr 21, 2010 7:35 am

9 Team NL only Auction ($260) keeper league (max 10 Keepers) (C,C,1b,2b,ss,3b,mi,ci,4of,2util: 4sp,4rp 1p). Contracts increase $7 after 3 years, lose the player after the 2nd 3 year contract. Below is my team. Active league since 1987, I took over a team in 2009 (in 2nd year). Generally I want to compete but figured it would take me 2 years to really compete and change over the roster. Looking at my roster, I think I have some quality players. Contracts begin once I activate the player. Since Ike is up so early, should I activate him with the hope Pedro Alvarez comes up along with Storen to bolster a 2nd half run? Or should I wait and see with the opportunity to keep Davis and Pedro under contract for another year?

Do you have to decide today? Or can you give him a week or so? Cause that's what I'd do. Give him a couple of weeks unless he gets hot.

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.

I do not have to decide today, no. Lineups go active every Monday, I did not start him this week. Its a tough call, if I activate him I want to maximize on his starts, but if he does terrible or gets sent back down, I lose a year. I will sit him for two weeks and follow the progress for at least 2 weeks. Thanks

What do you think, Ike seems like he can help; he a go?

Didn't you just say you were going to give him two weeks?

Yes. Agreed, not a Mets fan but nothing better than watching the prospects play.
