My team couldn't mash spuds....

Postby Fenris-77 » Tue Apr 20, 2010 1:15 am

My team has stared of super slow on the hitting side (5x5 roto) and while it's still early, I'd like to be getting some production out of my hitters. Anyway, I have Reimold and Swisher at the bottom end of my order, and I was thinking about adding at least one hot hand while I suffer through wicked slow starts from my bigger name guys. Here's who I have...

C- Ivan Rodriguez (just added him over Clement)
1B - Kendry Morales
2B - Chase Utley
SS - Jose Reyes
3B - Kevin Youkilis
OF - Josh Hamilton
OF - Adam Jones
OF - Johnny Damon
UTL - Juan Pierre
B - Nick Swisher
B - Nolan Reimold

DL - Jesus Flores (for no particular reason)

I was thinking about dumping one of Swisher or Reimold for one of the following guys... (and if I do make a move, I'm also going to deep-six Flores off the DL and add Weurtz, just 'cause)

Ty Wigginton, Travis Snider (now that he's heating up a little), Brett Gardner, or Ike Davis

So, anyone catch your eye there? Gardner's been the best off the list to date, but with Pierre and Reyes on board I don't really need more speed. Wigginton was the guy I was looking at the hardest, but I really don't know much about him, and I'm not sure he keeps an everyday job. Anyway, any and all commentary would be really helpful.

I'm guessing this is a standard yahoo, where managers shouldn't be too attached with bench hitters.

A double switch with Ty Wigginton and Weurtz sounds good to me. Say goodbye to Reimold and Flores.

Like what Mr. Albright says: Ride the hot hand(s)!

Drop Reimold over Swisher eh? Maybe I'm just getting maudlin a little early here, but I'd feel odd dropping Reimold just now, just as he's landed an unobstructed month to hit with Pie out, and after I very patiently waited two whole weeks for that opportunity while Reimold started out colder than the north side of a vegetable tit.

Swisher hasn't been able to hit the ground with a wad of smokeless either, which is why I'm a little torn. The decision about who to drop was weighing on me as much as who to pick up though, so I'll keep thinking about filing for divorce with Reimold. :lol: Perhaps another opinion or two before I serve the papers...

The only guy who intrigues me is Snider but I'm not sure I'd be willing to drop Swisher for him at this point. I certainly wouldn't part with Reimold until you see how he performs without Pie in his face.
