1B ponderings

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

1B ponderings

Postby reveries » Wed Jul 06, 2011 3:36 pm

I picked up Helton when Pujols went down and he's been really solid for me. Now that Pujols is back, I'm not sure if I should let go of him or Butler. It seems odd to throw Butler into waiver pool(especially since his tremenous BB/K rate is helpful in this league), but I'm not sure if I could trade him away. I really don't see Roberts as a comparable option either since I'd have 4 guys who can play 1B(including Lind) and no one to back up 2B or 3B if I kept both Helton and Butler. Really wish Pujols would get that final start at 3B. That'd solve everything. Thoughts? Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance.

Can lose Butler if you like.

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.
