Drop Kubel?

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

Drop Kubel?

Postby Giacoo » Wed Aug 08, 2012 8:15 pm

H2H mixed, weekly: W-L-T
Cats: R, H, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, TB, A, FPCT, AVG, OPS, CYC, OFA


Note: A hit counts hits x5. H, 1b/2b/3b, TB, AVG, OPS. A stolen base is only counted once. Hence, AVG/OPS are main stats to build off.

Not sure he's worth rostering anymore. His stats have sucked a long time now. He's either tired or just lost his mojo for the rest of ROS?

Either way, he's not helping me any and I am considering dropping him.

If so, what's my best option? Carlos Quentin, Kendrick?

Roster
C A.J. Ellis (LAD - C)
1B Adrian Gonzalez (Bos - 1B,OF)
2B Jose Altuve (Hou - 2B)
3B Evan Longoria (TB - 3B)
SS Elvis Andrus (Tex - SS)
OF Melky Cabrera (SF - OF)
OF Matt Holliday (StL - OF)
OF Shane Victorino (LAD - OF)
UTIL Edwin Encarnacion (Tor - 1B,3B)

BN Marco Scutaro (SF - 2B,3B,SS)
BN Jason Kubel (Ari - OF)
DL Carlos Ruiz (Phi - C)

FA
Angel Pagan (SF - OF)
Ben Revere (Min - OF)
Justin Morneau (Min - 1B)
Denard Span (Min - OF)
Chipper Jones (Atl - 3B)
Carlos Quentin (SD - OF)
Rajai Davis (Tor - OF)
Omar Infante (Det - 2B)
Chris Johnson (Ari - 3B)
Yonder Alonso (SD - 1B,OF)
Ruben Tejada (NYM - 2B,SS)
Maicer Izturis (LAA - 2B,3B,SS)
Howie Kendrick (LAA - 1B,2B,OF)
Ryan Ludwick (Cin - OF)

It's been 6 days since his last HR and he was absolutely on fire for a month or so before that. He's 5 RBI behind the NL lead. I don't think you should drop him. Morales has half as many HR on the season, and is always in danger of losing playing time with that psycho manager. If you don't like him at least try to trade him...

Thanks for the response!

I've added him in many trade offers this week and is on the trade block. Every offer rejected. No one wants nonproducers in our league. It's just the way they know this league. Especially how the scoring is set up. Also, you can go down fast and hard when you don't put in guys producing.

We have like 25 cats. So, like this week I am getting smoked 2-18 with a tie obviously somewhere. My last 3 weeks have been horrible and I am falling hard and fast. This is a W-L-T league with those 25 categories.

So, I don't know anymore...

I can see your point, with only 3 OF and 1 UTIL spot you need guys who are hitting...I still think you should hang onto him over those FAs

Didn't he hurt his hammy 7-10 days ago? I'd think he'll rebound in the next week or so. He's got Washington and @ St. Louis coming up but then he gets seven vs Houston, Miami.

I might hold on to him until the end of August and then dump him for whoever on that list is hot.

Arizona's first three weeks in September is tough (@ LAD, @ SFG, @SD, LAD, SFG).

And, look at Revere's first three weeks in September when Kubel has his tough stretch:

3 @ KC
3 @ CHW
4 CLE
3 KC
3 CHW
3 @ CLE

Thanks for the response.
