Fantasy 411 Q&A: April 6, 2009
What do you guys think of Chris Carpenter this year? He’s a free agent in my
10 team head-to-head keeper league. I’ve
got one open bench slot (out of three) since I just put B.J. Upton on
the disabled list. My league charges transaction fees throughout the
season ($.50 per add/drop/player traded) so there isn’t any pitch or
ditch during the season. Is Carpenter worth a rental while Upton is on
the disabled list? Is Carpenter worth holding onto after Upton gets
Damon in Seattle
It’s worth a shot for 50 cents, but since Upton isn’t going to be out
that long it’s a waste to pick up Carp and cut him before mid-April. It
really depends on who else you are cutting to make room for Upton and
still keep Carpenter.
Happy Opening Day Everyone!
Keep an eye on Mother Nature. She has already cost us two games, one in Chicago and one in Boston.
Also hope everyone had a chance to either listen live to the Sirius / XM show or download the podcast. We got some good feedback so we appreciate that. The show this Friday will be live from 6-8pm ET.
We will shoot the video show in about two hours. Sheff, A-Rod and the season opener will be on the docket.
