Roster question / advice
Here's my current roster:
C - Varitek
2B- O. Hudson
OF- S. Green
OF- L. Gonzalez
OF- B. Giles
UT- A. Huff
UT- D. Lee
UT- O. Cabrera
Bench: J. Cruz, Jr.
Bench: R. Durham
I just lost Hairston, who I picked up to replace the injured Durham, to a broken foot, so I then picked up Hudson to fill in until Durham comes back. Reports say that Durham should be back possibly on Monday. Here are the dilemma's I'm facing. Torii Hunter was put on waivers. Should I claim him. Before giving the automatic "yes", here's what I'm faced with. My team is struggling to keep up with others in hits, average, singles, and SB's. If I waive Cabrera and pick up Hunter, I'm picking up another player with a high ceiling that is struggling. I'm afraid I'm building a team of "tons of potential, but not producing," and hoping that they will produce "down the road." The problem is while I'm waiting, my team is getting beat in these categories, and I'm not sure that when these players do produce that I will be able to catch back up. This is a head to head league, so I'm not losing ground in categories, I'm losing the categories in games, which is causing me to lose ground in the standings. Someone also waived Dave Roberts, and I need him for his SB's, although he is on the DL and might not return until mid-June. I was thinking of picking him up and hanging onto him when Durham is healthy. Rich Aurillia is also available and I'd like to get him, but have no room.
What I'm thinking of doing now is the following:
Claim Hunter off waivers and waive Cabrera.
Wait until Durham comes off the DL and waive O. Hudson to pick up D. Roberts (if still available). If he's not still available I'd pick up Aurillia, Phelps, Cabrera, or Steve Finley.
Does this sound like the right thing to do? Any opinions appreciated.
