Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I think I'm addicted to this damn message board but I always get quality information, thanks.
Anyway, my OF is sort of weak running with Cargo, Ellsbury an Tabata. BJ Upton rides the bench, is it worth dropping Upton to stash LoMo. The other player I'd consider dropping is Jordan Zimmermann.
Second, could I trade Jered Weaver for Matt Kemp. I have Hamels, JJ, Brett Anderson, Shaun Marcum, Brandon Morrow, alexi Ogando. Thanks again in advance to top notch advice.
2 ways to look at who to drop.
1)Your OF is only weak due to the fact you have 3 players that do the exact same thing (Ellsbury, BJ and Tabata). So due to that, and only that, consider dripping BJ as he's the worst of the group of single cats OFs you have a stable full of. I say he's the worst as his batting average will likely be the worst of them all.
or if you want to keep your hitters, then 2)drop Morrow or Ogando, pick up LoMO, put him on your DL and then hopefully pick your pitcher back up in a couple days. Of the two, I'd drop Morrow. HIs K/9 is the only thing sexy about his history, and back from the DL he'll have one great start and 2 bad ones (very typical) if anyone picks him up off waivers, they'll likely drop him after the 2nd poor outing, so you can likely get him back within 12 days or so if you're willing to risk it.
