Considering dropping Hunter if I can't trade and picking up: Venters or Jensen, OR Bud Norris, Clay Buchholz, Trevor Cahill, Mike Minor, Jair Jurrjens, or Wandy Rodriguez?? Tell me what you think and leave me a message to answer yours and I will! Thanks
your lineup looks very solid. i agree on probably dropping torii hunter. i would replace him with someone who can rack up some stolen bases for your lineup, that is probably the category you will fall short on. your home run and rbi potential looks great from your team right now.
as for your pitchers, i like what you have. i might consider dropping chacin or colby lewis or either jair jurrjens and/or kenley jensen....depending on how the first week of the season shapes up and what those players do. i'm still not sure the dodgers have decided who their closer will be, but jensen obviously has lots of potential and seems like a good gamble. starting pitchers are always gold finds to begin the season as it seems a couple players always show up out of nowhere to begin the year.
Dump Farnsworth for Venters
Then dump Hunter for either Jurjens or Bucholz
What are the best bats available? You probably need another one on the bench... possible to replace Werth if he sucks again this year... I might dump Holland to pick up a bat.
Hardy and Werth could kill your batting average... I'd keep an eye out for other options... but overall I like your team!

Yeah I'm not too worried about avg, because I'm hoping they all have a better year than last (especially Werth). Lewis, sigh. Lol I want to like him since he's on the Rangers and he usually has a lot of K's and WHIP is decent. I might drop him for Bud Norris or Wandy.

Hunter is trash... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA what's your definition? not #1 but not #1000 Do I have him on a team? NO.. but will he be used in the dance known as the waiver wire shuffle.. count on it.. But to say trash because you wouldn't draft him in an IMAGINARY statistical nerd game is funny Only CPA geeks and Kenny fuQQing Powers -types of guys call someone trash. (For any reason) I bet that choad would put his lips all OVER Hunters meatpouch to be him for a day.
