Final Roster Adjustment for Playoffs (Week Two Edition)

11 posts in this topic

Team in Signature. This is Week Two of my league's playoffs. I had a bye in Week One because I was the #1 overall seed.

I have only one remaining player add of the three available for this week. I used the first one to option Jose Fernandez (shut down for season) to my farm and promote Evan Gattis. With my second player add, I FINALLY dropped Alex Rodriguez (Hamstring + Calf) and added Luke Hochevar (needed holds and ratios)

So with my third and final player add I need to address one of the 2 holes in my offense.

I have two main weaknesses in my current lineup. The (MI) position: Brad Miller (hamstring) and the 2nd (UTIL) position: Eric Young Jr. (streaky, good source of SB, which my team could use)

My options are as follows:

- Option Brad Miller* to farm & promote either Scooter Gennett, Josh Rutledge or Didi Gregorious

- Drop Eric Young Jr. & promote OF Christian Yelich

- Drop Eric Young Jr. & promote 1B/OF Logan Morrison

- Drop Eric Young Jr. & add OF Denard Span

- Drop Eric Young Jr. & add C Wilson Ramos

- Drop Eric Young Jr. & add OF Will Venable

- Drop/option Eric Young Jr./Brad Miller* & add SS Jonathan Villar as UTIL2/MI

*

Which is the best course of action? Will help in return 100% AS ALWAYS!!!! Please leave links! Cheers!

I don't think Miller's injury is too serious, right? should be day-to-day. If you only have one move left, I'd say to get rid of EY. Not a fan. He's good for one thing and one thing only. SB. And even then, he hasn't been running much (averaging 2 steals a week last 14 days) because he simply cannot get on base.

I'd go with either Yelich or Venable. If I'm reading this right, you already own Yelich and Venable is currently a FA. I'd probably take the chance on Venable for RoS, and hold Yelich for next year.

Thanks man! Im leaning that way too. Very intrigued by Ramos' recent production though. RBIs are a sore spot for me recently.

This is a dynasty league so yes we keep roster and farm players from year to year.

MIGHT also CONSIDER dropping Francisco Liriano (over EYJ), since my bullpen is pretty stout and my opponent's is VERY WEAK

I like the option with Ramos who has been hot, Venable and Yelich have also been hitting well. Ramos has racked up the HRs/RBIs, Yelich has hit consistently and even started stealing a few bases which might get you some back from what you'd lose cuting Young.

Thaks for you help with mine.

I added Jonathan Villar and put him into the starting line-up he's been hitting lately. I also like Ramos as you know as I have him as well and Perez has cooled off as late. Span would also be a good pick up has he's hitting and stealing but no power. But, Venable is a cat. 5 guy and you'd probably be best served by him IMO.

Thanks for the help with mine!

I think I have to go Venable but it's really close for me. I'm almost 50/50 between that and taking a shot that the hot streak with Ramos continues.

Span is hot too and isn't a bad option if you need some SB's and R's but would be my 3rd choice.

As intriguing as all the options were and I loved all your input...I ended up with Ramos.

Needed the RBI/HR surge Ramos is showing. Now starting 4 catcher eligible players: Napoli, Gattis, Perez and Ramos

Will option Miller and promote either Gennett or Rutledge next week!
