General Message Board
Heyward is expected to come off the DL sometime this week. I do not plan to activate him until he starts hitting a lot better because I have guys on my bench who are performing well. But when he does get back into the swing of things I have to drop one of my utility hitters:
I picked up Morse to replace Heyward so naturally he would be the one that I'd drop. He has done a phenomenal job so far and with the addition of Zimmerman to the lineup (as well as my fantasy lineup) I believe he will continue to perform at a high level. Unfortunately, I do not know what his playing time will be like with Adam LaRoche eventually coming off the DL.
Stephen Drew does not have the power that Morse has but he has been a good utility hitter for me, and having a backup SS to Elvis Andrus who gets an occasional day off is nice too. He hits cleaup in a potent Arizona lineup so I am inclined to keep him.
Weighing the pros and cons I think I'm gonna keep Drew and drop Morse because his playing time is up in the air and he doesn't score a lot of runs which is what I'm lacking. Morse's HR, RBI, and AVG have been nice though.
Should I stick with Drew or Morse?
You can get a great starting pitcher in return for those two. This game is about maximizing value, so that's what you need to do, a two for one to get a pitcher and free up the spot to take Heyward off the DL. You should NOT drop either of them.
