Fantasy 411 Q&A: Apr. 2, 2009

FEATURED QUESTION OF THE DAY

Someone in my league dropped Rick Porcello yesterday and he becomes a FA
tomorrow. Do I use my #3 waiver claim on him? Deep, 20 team keeper
league, but I’d be looking for production this year.

This early and in a keeper league, I go for it on Porcello. You have
plenty of time to work your way back up to top of the waiver order.
Will he produce this year? Tough to say since he is so young, but he has
the shot and that’s all you can ask for right now.

Hey everyone,

We’re almost there!  So close that Pitch or Ditch will make its debut tomorrow.  You’ll find POD exclusively on this blog throughout the season.  Each day’s entry will be up by mid-afternoon, and it will of course focus on the following day’s matchups. 

Don’t forget to catch today’s 411 podcast, as Noah Coslov and Corey Gottlieb will discuss the latest closer news out of Detroit, Colorado, and St. Louis.  Jeffrey “Coco” Ma will also join the show.

Also, a few of you have mentioned that keeping track of all the blog comments is difficult as it’s hard to tell which answers
are associated with which questions.  Unfortunately, the software that runs the site makes this the best we
can do right now.
When one of us answers your questions, we’ll
make sure to address our answer to the appropriate person.  If you have any suggestions, feel free to e-mail fantasy411@mlb.com and I will keep checking
the inbox.

 
Thanks,

Zach

Fantasy 411 Q&A: Apr. 1, 2009

FEATURED QUESTION OF THE DAY

What’s your take on LaPorta in CLE? Do you see him making an impact
this year? I took him in the last round of my keeper league draft last
night, but Rasmus and Schafer are also available. Thanks.

I think LaPorta makes an impact, but right now I think I like Rasmus and
even Schafer a little more since they are on big league rosters. Stashing LaPorta isn’t a bad idea, but I wouldn’t let him tie up my
bench if it’s shallow.

-Siano

I like LaPorta’s chances of getting called up mid-season, and he’s
definitely worth a last round pick in a keeper, but I’m ranking Rasmus
and Schafer ahead of him as I think they’ll get more total playing time
by year’s end.

-Zach
