    A Rod injury. What to do?

    Since Alex Rodriguez will be out likely until sometime in Sept does it make sense for me to drop him and pick up a guy like Aviles or Infante who are currently available and can contribute?
    This is my first year doing this and i'm just thinking that the fantasy playoffs occur during the regular season. The same time A Rod is injured. If he were on your team would you hold on to him or pick up someone else?
    Thanks for your time.

    • don't draft/ trade for aroid is a good way to avoid these kinds of situations

    • I would keep him if you can. Im holding on to him. He should be back for about the last two weeks of the regular season which i guess would be the 2nd and 3rd round of the fantasy playoffs and theres no better time to have him than the playoffs. My fear is that i drop him and someone else picks him up and then i end up playing that team in the playoffs and AROD hits 4 homeruns that week for him. Thats how things work out for me. Thats why i wont trade uggla even though hes killing me, not like i could get anything for him at this point anyway but i know as soon as i trade him he'll go on a 30 game hitting streak.
