Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I need to drop two of these players, which ones would you choose?
My lineup is as follows:
Bench: Bruce, Reddick, Aviles
I need to pick up some more pitching so I will have to drop a couple to do so.
Thanks for the help!
1. Drop lincy and dont look back other than look at the weeks that you could have done better on pitching cats if you benched him instead of starting, add those wins to your current score and you will see what his performance has done to your standings. Pick up a FA that has decent numbers over the past 30 days, suggestions are liriano, fiers, Quintana etc
2 drop aviles, do not drop bruce, he will get picked up but whoever has the best waiver and aviles cant do much more than what you already have. Keep bruce and slide your guys around to fill in during off days or filling in when the matchups aren't favorable. Again, stream or grab an FA for a short stay based on close future starts, like people do with milone, they only start him at home.
Keep offering trades to teams that have weak offensive output buy sorting the team stats on your league page. Then target one of their pitchers.

Doug... I've said numerous times now don't think I would be dropping Aviles first before anyone else on my roster.... you then preceded (with multiple WOWs) to insist on me not dropping Bruce. Dude I have established that will not be happening. I thought we were past that but apparently not. Since you think I could EASILY trade Bruce for a stud pitcher and I informed you that I have tried without success even to the tune of Nova for Bruce. I asked you who you might consider a good trade for Bruce but you don't seem to respond to simple conversation so perhaps I should just take your advice with a grain of salt. Thanks for your time... WOW!

um hmmm OK well. Tell me this with Ws and Ls counting along with Ks ERA and Whip who would you take over Bucholz?
Smardjzia, Billingsley, Blanton, JA Happ, Floyd, Bud Norris, Lirano (might consider he's stil on waivers) Cahill, Smyly.... There's not too much out there man. My league is 12 teams and pitching heavy.

Not sure why you say Bruce is undroppable except for Name value which I'm not big into. Colvin has far better numbers over the past 30 days than Bruce plus he plays in Coors half the year. I'm thinking Avlies and Bruce will be dropped but I still really hate to do it but there doing no good for me on the bench.
