Use waiver on Ianetta?

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

Use waiver on Ianetta?

Postby wudaben » Thu Apr 07, 2011 7:45 am

Normally I'm not the type of manager that has ADD and I realize there isn't usually that much difference between most catchers but I currently have Jaso and the more I look at Tampa's lineup I just can't help but think they won't be that good this year and the whole catching 2-3 days a week unless your name is Napoli or Napoli Jr (JP) just doesn't sit well so I'm looking to make a change.

Ianetta was dropped the other day by a manager who drafted 3 catchers and Hundley is a free agent. Knowing people in my league, Ianetta may very well be claimed by someone else. Normally good players do not regularly get dropped in this league so having a high waiver rank usually isn't a big deal except on the day after the draft. With that said I have the #2 waiver. If you were in my position would you use the waiver on Ianetta or risk it that he clears and be prepared to accept Hundley instead?

I'd use the waiver.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.

Agreed - better player, better ballpark, better lineup.
