    STICKY PREDICTAMENT - POLANCO

    H2H start 2 catchers 12 team league with NA spot - 1st place - I got a 6.5 game lead over 2nd and 20 game lead over 6th

    I cannot activate Polanco without dropping someone. I have Cargo, Arenado, and Weiters on DL taking up space on my roster with only 1 BN in my hitters of either Singleton/Howard. There are only 2 BN spots on my starting pitchers with my worst pitcher as Archer. Do I wait it out until Monday to hear more about Weiters even if I lose ground in the standings - in a 2 catcher league he holds great value or do I drop someone. If drop, then who should it be?

    • I'd cut Howard.

    • Is this a keeper or dynasty if not isnt Weiters done for the season ?

    • You don't say how many DL spots you have. Also since I don't play h2h I don't know if it's necessary for you to hold on to so many pitchers. I know a lot of people stream pitchers in h2h so they don't need so many on their active roster. If you can only have one or two players on your bench I don't know why you'd make one of them a slow fat guy that can only play 1B. Not very useful. I wouldn't roster Weiters unless you have 3 DL spots. Time to let go. I have Polanco on NA too and right now I'm going to leave him there and see how things work out. I know that most people are very anxious to get him into their lineup right away but I don't think this guy is going to be a Trout/Puig kind of player; I don't think he has that kind of power just yet. Hope that helps some.

    • I have a similar dilemma. My OF is Pence, Bruce, Gomez and my UTIL is Marte & Kipnis. My bench is Jon Singleton & Polanco. I am thinking of benching Marte atho he went 3 for 5 last night. I would love to get both Singleton & Polanco into my lineup every day. Chris Davis is my 1B.

    • I have a hard time thinking that Matty is coming back anytime this year. He has been out a while and having some rough days in his throwing program. I think he is going to be shut down and have the surgery since he is going to visit Dr. Andrews. What catchers do you currently roster? and is a FA vs. 50% Weiters not the same thing? Just my thoughts, but I am excited as hell to see what polanco can to tonight!

    • It's hard to say who to drop not seeing your whole team but I would have to think that over ROS Polanco will out produce Howard by a good amount. Based on what you posted...I would plug Singleton in at 1B. Since you must carry 2 catchers - I wouldn't drop any of your guys on DL. What does your OF and UTIL look like? What other pitchers can you fire? Polanco is a must play - so somebody has to go.

      • We don't have utility. Below is my roster. I got the big lead in the standings so the smart play may be to wait out results from weiters but it stops me from making any move on the FA wire and activating polanco.

    • Don't activate Polanco until he has a good game or two, then drop Singleton/Howard to activate him.
