Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Check these guys out and tell me which 2 to drop if you had to.
I am really low on saves and whip. It's a 10 team 5x5 roto non-keeper and I need to pick up 2 batters to help my avg and HR's which I'm low on(same as saves and whip but really close with the pack) but don't know who to drop or keep while in this process helping my saves and whip cats? While I put McDonald on my list, his stats are just as good as my other 2 s/p's(Strasburg and CJ Wilson) Any Ideas? There are some decent players on wire that might help as well. Romo,McDonald,Kuroda,Miley,Gee,Waldon. Thanks for any input.

I would love to do a trade, even a 2 for 1. I don't care if I lose on paper as long as I can get a decent player and maybe free up some roster space at the same time. I'm a 3 on HR's and 3 on Avg as well. (I'm very close to the pack on both cats) I'm 3 and 3 for Saves and WHIP only 5 points catchable at 10 saves diff and whip is .10 diff between me and 1st.
It's so much easier with good advice from someone out of my loop. Maybe give me some trades i should go after. As for now, I really need to drop 2 players and not go backwards. Thanks again
If you're low on whip that's a good thing! And how are you low on saves with 5 closers? And why do you list free agent pickups for pitchers if you need to pick up 2 batters? Johnson Lester and Haren all started badly, but they should be good. Haden is most worrisome to me. You could drop Benoit for Miley.. It would be very surprising if valverde ended up on the dl on Monday, most closers get past ligament impigment. And you usuAlly don't want the closer of the worst team in the MLB, especially since marmol is so damn up and down. Who's the 2nd McDonald?

I've lost some closers due to injury and I've just added recently,Cook,Marmol and Benoit. I added some FA to the list thinking that I could get some era and whip help with an occasional win here and there. The same as adding Romo,(not many save chances but will help out with other stats. I was thinking on adding a backup ss and Catcher until he gets off dl and the catcher being s Perez hopefully he plays better than Napoli and I can use him as my flex player
Marmol and Benoit in that order are the best pitchers to drop. But do you necessarily have to drop pitchers? Aren't there any bats you could simply upgrade rather than having to replace pitching with hitting?
