    • Anderson is the only one I woulld keep but even he cant seem to stay healthy hard to say whats in you fA

    • Keeper league? The first person you can let go is Halladay. It's rumored that he may have thrown his last pitch. Parker - keeper league makes him a little more valuable, but that kid is in a nose dive and headed straight for AAA. The next thing I would do would be to shop Bryce Harper. Dude started out on fire and his value can't get any higher than it already is. It's probably less today than it was last week. He's coming back to earth. Problem there is the division, and the severe lack or lineup protection. Teams are just gonna quit pitching to him until someone in front of him or behind him can make the opposing team pay for walking him. I'd certainly try to maximize that value and see if you can get a solid offer for him.. Maybe even Upton. I think Upton will have the far better season than Harper, but I think Harper's value right now is still higher than Upton's. Won't last too much longer though. Move him while you can and get something.. As far as your corner IF spot, I'd play Arenado over Ike Davis. I read just yesterday that the Mets are considering sending him to AAA as well in hopes that he can get his head on straight..

      • I'm obviously a Dbacks homer so my opinion may be a little biased, but I watch every game. Montero (if that Miguel and not Jesus) has really started hitting the ball pretty well, just keeps getting hit right at people. He's seeing the ball pretty well - just needs to start finding the gaps. If that is Miguel Montero on your roster, and you can find a taker who needs a catcher and wants to buy on Perez's hype - that's a possible trade too..
