    Coghlan, Alcantara, or Gillaspie?

    Should I feel confident in what I have and roll with them or do you think Coghlan, Alcantara, or Gillaspie should be added in place of one of my current players to improve upon my team?

    Here is my current team:

    Buster Posey SF - C,1B
    Steve Pearce Bal - 1B,OF
    Matt Carpenter StL - 2B,3B
    Anthony Rendón Was - 2B,3B
    Dee Gordon LAD - 2B,SS
    Scooter Gennett Mil - 2B
    Yasiel Puig LAD - OF
    J.D. Martínez Det - OF
    Ryan Braun Mil - OF
    Christian Yelich Mia - OF
    Erick Aybar LAA - SS
    Corey Dickerson Col - OF
    Wilson Ramos Was - C
    Nolan Arenado Col - 3B
    Joey Votto Cin - 1B
    Joe Mauer Min - C,1B

    Scoring Categories: R, H, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, GIDP, AVG, OPS

    • i would drop ramos for whoever you think has the most upside. i dont think i would want to own both jd martinez and coghlan though

    • At this point... I think I'd drop Mauer outright for Cogs. Mauer just isn't that useful in fantasy anymore and you would still have strong Catching depth with Posey and Ramos. You can slot Cogs in a number of places. I would also look to upgrade at 1B somehow through trade, not with Gillespie though because singles hitting corner infielders don't really cut it when push comes to shove in fantasy. You could deal some speed by packing Yelich, Gennet and maybe Mauer too to get say Brandon Moss who you could then move to your OF when Votto returns, plus you could pick up Alcantara who I do like a lot, but your team is really crowded at 2B.

    • Keep the team you have. If anything watch for guys who had a suprisingly good 1st half (Pearce, Gennett, Martinez, Dickerson) to cool off. If say Gennett cools off snag Alcantara, and if one of your OF's cool off Coghlan would be a good choice.

    • None of those three are an upgrade IMO. Of the three I like Coughlan.

      • Thanks for responding... I think I like Coghlan more of the 3 as well. His minors numbers were pretty good. In the minors he had good plate discipline and walked nearly has much as he struck out.

        I just wasn't sure if Alcantara would be a good pick up. He's started on fire and I keep reading the hype on his power and speed. But wasn't sure if any of my players are worth dumping to pick up either.

        The only player I was considering dropping is Ramos for one of those guys.
