Drop strategy

Postby Trans » Sun Sep 21, 2003 11:45 am

Would you drop some stud--say Abreu-- who is playing poorly to pick up some steals--like Dave Roberts--when your in the finals of a H2H championship and need steals bad?

I fell bad doing in, but Roberts is playing well and Abreu is stinking. It's not a keeper league, but is this a bad strategy? I'm down 14-9 in homeruns.

Thanks.

I'm also thinking of dropping some position players--Huff, for example-- and grabbing RPs in hopes of getting saves. I don't think I can climb back into the HR, RBI and R race, and hope I can win the saves cat. I might drop Huff, Abreu and Kendall and Grab Rietsma, Aquilino Lopez and Carl Crawford.

Good idea? I'm up 4-3 in wins, down 8-6 in saves.

Also 1 thing you can do is after your starters make there last start drop them and pick up someone who might be able to help in the last couple days of your season.

Trans,

How far behind are you in HRs? I would tend to agree with everyone else. Do what you have to do...
