Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I know its very early in the season but Lexi Ramirez hasn't even reached base yet. I'm still hoping he will come out of it but I am very limited on who I can drop since my league has a minimum 46 innings pitched and I HAVE to use my bench spots for SP match ups.
So if I put Alexei on the bench and pick up another shortstop I'd have to drop either C. Jackson, P. Burrell or I could drop Kendry Morales and risk giving up my sleeper. I also have Tori Hunter but I don't want to let go of a veteran like him.
Here are the SS available on FA wire.
Scutaro, Izturis, Andrus, Wilson, Bartlet, Betancourt, Keppinger or Guzman. My intial reaction is to pick up Guzman but I need advice.
So let me know who you'd drop and who you'd pick up, OR should I just take the hit and leave Ramirez in?
i have the same problem and i picked up felipe lopez (ARI) for that specific reason among another. He has four attributes including 2B,SS,3B and OF, he's a good bench man to have for days that any starter who share any of those attributes might have a day off. He's the lead off hitter for arizona, the categories he'll be best for are Runs and SB, don't expect much out of batting average or RBI's but he's got a decent on base percentage. Good luck and God Speed to Alexei.
